Fantasy Basketball Rankings - UCONN Alumni


The Beast of the Big East!
On the heels of the Big East's first place University of Connecticut's resounding victory of Rutgers, I wanted to provide an update of the players the school is more well-known for - its men's basketball players. With fantasy basketball getting into full-swing, I am going to track how these fellow alumni measure-up.

They 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.
As with any rotisserie-style game, the early rankings are subject to wild fluctuations based on a great game or a couple of stinkers. I am sure there are few fantasy ballers who would rank C Emeka Okafor behind SG Rip Hamilton.
