Looking at the best of the Western Conference from 2014-15

 

As the playoffs begin it is time for a quick look back at the players who had the greatest fantasy impact this past season. For these awards the criteria is the player who had the most impact in terms of points or wins as well as peripheral categories. For a player to have had a major impact he cannot have missed a significant chunk of time to injury, that being the case you will not find Patrick Kane or Mark Giordano on these lists. By missing as many games as Kane and Giordano did respectively their overall all impact was severely diminished. Giordano for example may have been the best fantasy defenseman in the game before his injury but after missing 20 games his overall impact is closer to the top 15 as opposed to the top five. While a high level of per game production is certainly desirable durability and the ability to play a full season can deliver just as much benefit.
