FortyEightMinutes is bringing you fantasy basketball rankings and content based on ESPN’s points league settings for the 2022-23 NBA season.
The Sixers have high expectations after an offseason that brought in many new role players around their core. Let’s take a look at where the team’s players land in our Top 300 fantasy basketball rankings.
Joel Embiid and James Harden each enter the 2022-23 campaign coming off of different seasons. Embiid again was voted as the runner-up MVP while Harden was traded for the second season in a row and after re-signing on a short-term deal this offseason, he’ll look to bounce back to MVP form.
Tyrese Maxey broke out with extended playing time in 2021-22 and there’s no reason to expect him to take a step back entering his third season in the league. Maxey will be eligible for a rookie-scale extension this offseason, so some would consider this a contract year for the young guard.
Tobias Harris may be the subject of trade rumors but if you temper expectations, he’s a serviceable starter in the league (from both an NBA and fantasy perspective).
Montrezl Harrell is on his fifth team in four years, though he’s been efficient at every stop. Splitting time between the Wizards and Hornets last year, he recorded a true shooting percentage of .680.
P.J. Tucker, De’Anthony Melton, and Danuel House are both new and they are among the players that know each other from Houston. Matisse Thybulle remains on the team despite trade rumors and he should have a role again. Furkan Korkmaz and Shake Milton will likely be squeezed for minutes, though one of the two should be able to carve out a role with the Sixers this season.
