All-NBA First Fantasy Team presented by Sirius: Through January

Award Explanation | Read the Monthly Article

Each month, we will chart the top fantasy performers at each position according to the Fantasy Sports Performance Index. When the regular season comes to a close, we will hand out the hardware in the following categories: Most Valuable Player, Point Guard, Shooting Guard, Small Forward, Power Forward, Center, Rookie of the Year, and Bounce-Back Player of the Year. For more information on the awards and how they are determined, go here.

While many of the leaders at each position held strong during the month of January, there were some shakeups underneath. Gilbert Arenas continues to zero in on the MVP and point guard awards, while Shawn Marion and Kevin Garnett continue to hold down the fort at small forward and power forward, respectively. In this latest cycle, some have risen while some have fallen. Where will we go from here? Explore the rankings below!

Award Details
Award Determination: All awards are based on player fantasy performance in NBA.com's FSPI. FSPI determines the best all-around fantasy players in standard eight category leagues, weighing averages and totals equally. Players are compared to the league average and league maximum to determine dominance in each category.

Position Eligibility: Position eligibility is based off of NBA.com Ultimate Fantasy Commissioner eligibility. Within that game, a player is eligible at a particular position if he started 10 games there last year or this year. Since many players qualify at multiple positions, players are shifted around to make the best possible All-NBA Fantasy Team.
