Nic Claxton is rising up the ranks. (0:28)

To celebrate the unofficial second start of the NBA season, ESPN Fantasy is making it easy to start your fantasy basketball season right now!

Sign up to play or create your own custom league to start fresh with no stats carried over from the beginning of the season.

We've even created a mini "not too late to draft" draft guide to help you get started. With ESPN fantasy and the ESPN Fantasy App, you can play how you want, when you want, and where you want.


Here are the updated top 200 players for leagues that use ESPN's standard head-to-head (H2H) category scoring.
