Last season, Dallas Mavericks small forward Harrison Barnes broke out in a major way. In his fifth season in the league, he put up career highs in points (19.2), minutes (35.5), and steals (0.8). Anyone who rostered him was poised for a fantasy basketball title.

If you want to know who will break out this season in preparation for your fantasy basketball draft, you need to see what the team at SportsLine has to say.

SportsLine’s model is powered by the same people who powered projections for all three major Fantasy companies. And that same group is sharing Fantasy Basketball cheat sheets for this season.

Their model has already nailed Eagles TE Zach Ertz’s NFL breakout. Ertz leads all tight ends in yards (387), catches (32), and targets (48).

This year in its fantasy basketball rankings, SportsLine’s model is all-in on new Sacramento Kings forward Zach Randolph. He’s SportsLine’s ninth-ranked power forward and has a sixth-round ADP.

Their model has Z-Bo ranked similarly to players like LaMarcus Aldridge (fifth-round ADP), Julius Randle (fifth), and even Kevin Love (third). Steal Randolph with confidence in the sixth round of your fantasy basketball draft in his first year with the Kings.

Another breakout: Trail Blazers guard Evan Turner. Coming off an injury-plagued season in which he only appeared in 65 games, Turner isn’t going off draft boards until the 12th round. However, SportsLine’s fantasy basketball cheat sheets have him ranked the same as Josh Jackson, Brandon Ingram, and Jayson Tatum, who are all being drafted four rounds earlier. Don’t snooze on Turner when you draft.

One breakout candidate you’re probably not thinking about: new Clippers forward Danilo Gallinari. Coming over from the Nuggets, Gallinari is primed for a career year. SportsLine’s fantasy basketball cheat sheets have Gallinari, who’s still available in the sixth round of drafts, ranked similarly to both Andrew Wiggins and Carmelo Anthony, who are going off the board two rounds earlier.

SportsLine’s cheat sheets are also high on a big-name point guard you can snag in the sixth round who will out-perform players like D’Angelo Russell (fourth round), Jrue Holiday (fifth), and Ricky Rubio (fifth).

So what Fantasy Basketball sleepers should you snatch in your draft? And what huge point guard can you wait on until late? Visit SportsLine now to get Fantasy Basketball cheat sheets from the proven model that powered all three fantasy sites and find out.
