James Harden put the finishing touches on another dominant season with 39 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and five 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss to the Thunder.
Your fantasy MVP of the 2018-2019 season is the Beard. Harden continues to etch his name in the record books with a scoring spree only Wilt Chamberlain has matched and he joins Michael Jordan as the only players to average at least 35 points and seven assists in a season. The Rockets team dealt with an unlucky amount of injuries to their entire rotation which pushed Harden to to his upper limits. He finishes the year averaging 36.1 points, 6.6 rebounds, 7.6 assists, 2.1 steals, 0.7 blocks and 4.8 3s on .442 shooting from the floor and .878 shooting at the line on 11.0 attempts a game. He's mastered the step-back and one of the best isolation scorers in the history of the sport has now added an improved floater to his game. The extra work put into his conditioning and strength training has shown on the court and excluding the lockout season, the lowest amount of games Harden has played in a season is 72. One of the most reliable players in fantasy sports, Harden is one of the safest picks you can nab in the top spot on draft day.
