Fantasy Basketball Rankings - UCONN Alumni

In honor of the UCONN football team's likely New Year's Day Bowl thanks to a no worse than second place finish in the Big East, I bring this week's fantasy basketball update on the 13 UCONN alumni playing in the NBA.

Rudy Gay continues to be the surprise player ranked slightly behind Ray Allen and Caron Butler. He is ranked 42nd overall while a fellow alumni Emeka Okafor languishes in the 70s.

My fellow Huskies are ranked according to NBA.com's Fantasy Sports Performance Index (FSPI). To delve more into more detail, click through, but, to sum-up, FSPI is:

Each player is given an FSPI value for each standard rotisserie category (FG%, FT%, 3-pointers, Points, Rebounds, Assists, Steals, and Blocks) for both totals and per game averages. They are then given a total score for each of those stat collections that averages out all of their per-game and totals FSPI. We then give you a "Combined FSPI" that averages the scores for both totals and averages. If a player leads the league in a particular category, he gets a 10.00. If he is at the bottom of the fantasy barrel, he scores a 0.00. Easy, right? You want as many 10.0's - or numbers close to 10.00 - as possible. Once you dip under 5.0 in a category, you are looking at an area of weakness that will need to be compensated for elsewhere.
