23/24 When To Consider Guide – Eight and Nine-Category Leagues

One of the questions I get asked the most is “When is it okay to reach for X player?”. That’s a very reasonable question. In competitive leagues, we often have to reach for the players we want. This guide answers that question for the players currently ranked inside of the top 100 in Elite Fantasy Basketball’s eight and nine-category Top 150s. Whether or not a reach is a viable move will be dependent on your build. Because of that, I’ve included notes in this guide to make that clear. For example, if you are punting FT%, Walker Kessler is a decent pick as early as the third round in 12-team leagues. That doesn’t mean that you should take him there since he is usually available in the fourth or even the fifth, but it does mean that you could take him that high and end up happy with your pick. I’ve also included a column that looks at when you should start considering each player if they are not a strong fit for your build. This will help you react appropriately when players that you didn’t think would be available at your pick are available.
