Staff Fantasy Basketball Draft Recap: How Far Did Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry Fall?

The numberFire hoops writers recently drafted their 12-team fantasy basketball league. Here are the results, complete with analysis.

Welcome to the numberFire Hoops Writers Fantasy League draft recap.

Every year, numberFire's hoops team puts together a 12-team league made up entirely of guys who write about the NBA and fantasy basketball here at the site. The format is head-to-head, and we use the default Yahoo settings for scoring (nine categories) and team size (13 players, 10 of which start).

Our hope is that by sharing the results of our draft and some analysis with you, you'll have a guide of sorts to help you with your own drafts as we head into the final weekend before the NBA season. You can peruse our preseason fantasy content at length, but sometimes it's interesting to see which players we would pick when we're in the driver's seat and bragging rights are on the line.

Before you get started on this recap, feel free to take a look at last year's draft first and see how we did. If you're wondering, I won the whole thing (brushes shoulders off). Also, I will refer to our own fantasy projections throughout the article. Make sure you check them out and keep them handy.

We gave live commentary throughout the slow draft process on Twitter, using the hashtag #nFHoopsDraft. Take a look back over that if you want even more analysis beyond this particular article. For that matter, while you're on the Twitter, why not click on the "Twitter Handle" links below and follow our whole hoops crew for up-to-the-minute advice on fantasy hoops all season long?
