Below are Andre' Snellings' top-200 fantasy basketball rankings for head-to-head points leagues, using ESPN Fantasy's new default scoring system.

Click here for a quick explanation of how the new system works and why returning leagues should consider changing to the new format.

If you're new to fantasy hoops, here is how points leagues work:

This format should be familiar, because it's similar to the way fantasy football is played. It allows you to assign a given point value to individual statistical categories, and each scoring period's winner is determined solely by which team accumulates the most fantasy points versus a single opponent. At the end of the week, you earn either a win, loss or tie before moving on to your next opponent. ESPN Fantasy's new default scoring system is as follows: Point (1); 3PM (1); FGA (-1); FGM (2); FTA (-1); FTM (1); REB (1); AST (2); STL (4); BLK (4); TOV (-2).

With all that in mind, here are the top-200 points league rankings, which will be updated regularly throughout the preseason:
