Last season the top five scorers in Fantasy BBL, based on the player index rating, (PIR).

JAYSEAN PAIGE (NEW): 20.2

CJ GETTYS (CHE): 19.9

TONY HICKS (SUR): 19.1

BRANDON PEEL (LON): 19.0

DAVID KADIRI (MAN): 18.1

The summer has seen a number of players confirmed to be returning, as well as new signings already and players returning to the BBL will be graded based on last seasons numbers. At this early stage, we thought we’d take a look at the top 5 PIR for players coming back to the BBL:

JUSTIN ROBINSON (LON): 18.1

KIERON ACHARA (GLA): 15.8

ALI FRASER (GLA): 14.6

PIERRE HAMPTON (LEI): 13.8

JR HOLDER (LEI): 13.3

Serious food for thought, especially considering two of the top three are GLASGOW ROCKS players. Leicester Riders also have two players in the top five, with London Lions holding the top player spot. Also, interestingly it would appear that the only confirmed player in the Lions squad, including a head coach, is JUSTIN ROBINSON. As all 11 BBL teams build toward the coming season, we’ll keep you posted on PIR averages and projected PIR for new signings to the league.
