Players Whose Average Draft Position is Rising

The following are trends we're seeing in drafts across various sites:
  • DeMarcus Cousins: People are starting to see this man fill up the box scores and he's a consistent double-double threat. Add in the recent injury to Samuel Dalembert, and it looks like Cousins has a great chance of being one of the top rookies in this draft class.
  • Roy Hibbert: With news this offseason that Hibbert has been working with legendary big man Bill Walton, dropping weight, and dealing with his previously unknown asthma, Roy has been getting the attention of fantasy owners. This season, Hibbert figures to be a bigger part of the Pacers' offense and the team will count on him in the middle with a lack of talent to back him up. This has all the makings to be a breakout year for the young center.
  • Michael Beasley: Beasley has been up-and-down this preseason, but the Timberwolves have shown that they are going to try and get the most out of Beasley and he'll likely be their primary offensive option. If Beasley is going to live up to his potential coming out of Kansas State as the #2 pick, this is the year it's going to happen.
