With that in mind, it is actually very hard to judge who the best free throw shooters in the league are because both of these facts have to be kept in mind, but here is my attempt to judge the 20 free throw shooters who will most help your team as well as the 5 most likely to hurt your team.

Fantasy Best and Worst of Field Goal Percentage in 2008

I thought I’d approach this article a little differently this year and pick the twenty best and five worst players to have on your Fantasy Basketball Team in a Rotisserie League if you hope to compete for Field Goal Percentage.
