To some, the Philadelphia 76ers are already a playoff team, and to others, they've proved absolutely nothing. Well, each option seems legitimate to me! After all, this franchise pretty much tried to lose for the past several seasons leading up to this campaign in which they believe competing in the watered-down East is certainly possible. The 76ers are loaded with young talent and buoyed with veteran aid, and it sure seems that fantasy owners are caught in the middle of whether to buy in or proceed with caution.

Several preseason games are out of the way, and contests that will count are fast approaching next week, so I figured I'd add my thoughts on this intriguing bunch of players because forecasting the statistics the players can and will provide depends on myriad factors, including health, roles and skill sets. I've seen several of the Philadelphia 76ers preseason games and followed along with all the coachspeak, so using the ESPN Fantasy projections as a guide, here are one person's thoughts on how fantasy owners should be viewing things in Philly.
