Fantasy Basketball: Top 50 Dynasty Small Forward Rankings

The top 10 of my dynasty small forward rankings haven’t changed much at all since the last update. However, there have been quite a few shakeups throughout the rest of the rankings. Several young players have started to rapidly rise up the rankings as the season comes closer to the end. Many teams that are out of the playoffs are starting to bench their veterans and unleash their youth. The last several weeks of the season offer a glimpse into the potential of some of these players heading into next season and beyond. 

Biggest Risers

Cam Thomas

Many people thought Thomas was going to be a one-dimensional fantasy player. For much of this season, he was a dominant scorer but didn’t offer much else. However, over the last month, he’s averaging 23.1 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.1 three-pointers. Not only could he turn into one of the elite scorers in the league, but his fantasy repertoire is starting to become more well-rounded as the season progresses. At only 22 years old, his dynasty stock should continue to soar into next season.

Bennedict Mathurin

Mathurin rises up to 40th after not being on the last dynasty rankings update. The 21-year-old started to take on a larger role after Buddy Hield was dealt at the trade deadline. In the month of February, he averaged 15.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.9 three-pointers. Mathurin underwent season-ending shoulder surgery and is out for the rest of the year, but his dynasty arrow is definitely pointing up. The former top-10 overall draft pick will look to carry his momentum over to next season.

Biggest Fallers

Jaime Jaquez Jr.

Jaquez Jr. caught fire at the beginning of the season but has cooled off significantly in the past couple of months. This rough patch has dropped him 14 spots since the last small forward dynasty ranking. The minutes have been there for him, he just hasn’t been producing like he was earlier in the season. In February, he averaged 10.1 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 2.5 assists. His scoring has dropped off remarkably as he was averaging 16.1 points for the month of December. It is slightly concerning that Jaquez isn’t producing more while Tyler Herro has been on the shelf.

LeBron James

I have to admit, it is quite strange to do a top 50 small forward ranking without LeBron on it. He has not stated yet if next year will be his final NBA season, but he is in the final year of his contract and turns 40 years old next season. Even if he did return beyond his age 40 season, his dynasty value is very minimal at this stage in his career. Father Time hasn’t really slowed LeBron down too much as he is still one of the best fantasy players in the game, but his dynasty value can’t compete with a lot of players 10-15 years his junior.

Potential Dynasty Small Forward Breakouts

Brice Sensabaugh

As Utah has faded from the playoff picture, they have started to lean on developing their youth. Sensabaugh has been averaging 23.2 minutes per game in March. He has dropped at least 14 points in four of his last nine games. The Utah Jazz invested a first round in this year’s draft on Sensabaugh, so they would like to see his potential heading into next season.

Kris Murray

Murray was the 23rd pick in the 2023 draft. Portland has been out of the playoff hunt for quite some time now and he has been one of the biggest benefactors of this situation. In the month of March, he averaged 9.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.1 three-pointers. He has scored at least 10 points in five of the last six games. He should get all the minutes he can handle the rest of the way.
