Power Forward (PF) Sleepers – Top 3
Tristan Thompson – Cle – pf/c – 21%
The #4 overall pick in last year’s NBA draft, Thompson showed plenty of ability and potential as a 20 year old rookie. In 25 starts at the center position in the Cavaliers lineup, Thompson posted a rock solid per game average of 10 points, 7.5 rebounds, 0.9 blocks, 0.6 steals, and a 47% field goal percentage. With the starting power forward job his for the taking to begin the 2012-2013 season, Thompson could easily take a huge step forward while potentially becoming a double-double points/rebounds contributor.
Chandler Parsons – Hou – sf/pf – 19%
As a 2nd round draft pick last season, Parsons played nothing like a rookie, as he quickly emerged as a scrapy hussle player that every team in the NBA wants in their lineup. With an ability to tally stats across the board, Parsons is poised to become an integral player in fantasy basketball lineups during the 2012-2013 season. With the ability to play both forward positions, Parsons should easily see between 30-35 minutes of playing time as a starter in the Rockets lineup. Parsons offers excellent overall value and upside for fantasy basketball teams this season.
Jan Vesely – Was – pf – 9%
With 6-11 height and plenty of athletism, Vesely will have an opportunity to claim the starting power forward spot in the Wizards lineup for the 2012-2013 season. Entering his sophomore season in the NBA, Vesely has the potential to become a double-double points/rebounds contributor, while also tallying steals and blocks, to go along with an excellent field goal shooting percentage. For comparison purposes, think Kris Humphries type stats potential for Vesely this season.
