• A third of the way through an NBA season is a great point to reflect on what we’ve seen and start to adjust our projections of what is to come. Now that our 2022-23 Dynasty Rankings are updated, it’s time to dive into who made the biggest jumps, and who had the biggest fall from dynasty grace. One note about this piece is that it will NOT include rookies, because I’ll be doing an entire article based on how I’ve adjusted my rookie rankings and why. Keep your eyes peeled.

     

    If there’s someone you think should be on the list, or even someone that should have been left off because we moved them too far one way or another, feel free to let me know on Twitter @rhett_bauer!

    Biggest Risers

     

    Bol Bol
    F/C, Orlando Magic
    +250 (from 379 to 129)

    Probably the biggest riser on any set of dynasty rankings, simply because he went from an afterthought to a top-50 9-cat player. I don’t believe he’s a good defender, plus he’s on a team that has a lot of talent on the roster and likely on the way through the draft, so if there was ever someone ready to buy I would gladly sell. The guy slid to the second round for a reason, and that reason was his medicals. At the same time though, we can’t really deny the production even in limited minutes.

     

    Dennis Smith Jr.
    G, Charlotte Hornets
    +250 (from 439 to 189)

    DSJ was likely above this when he was an up-and-coming rookie, but fell way off after multiple stops. Seems like his career may have been brought back from the brink, and it will be interesting to see what comes next for him as the Hornets get their guards healthy. No matter what though, he’s been incredibly disruptive on the defensive end and has more of a pedigree than some other guys that are barely hanging on to an NBA roster, so he may get more of the benefit of the doubt.

    Biggest Fallers, non-Primo division

     

    Oshae Brissett
    F, Indiana Pacers
    -59 (from 210 to 269)

    I love Oshae as a player, but it doesn’t seem like Rick Carlisle does. I thought he had a great chance to be a 25-30mpg player with the lack of wings in Indiana, but that just hasn’t worked out. It also doesn’t help that Brissett’s shooting and finishing has fallen off, leaving him as only a positive contributor in threes and barely steals. While I do think there’s a valuable rotation wing in here for a good team, it seems more likely that he’ll be a 15-20mpg guy rather than a 20-30mpg guy which is a drastic hit in long-term outlook.
