At this point of the season we have already entered the second and last half of the 2013-2014 campaign. We are already past the trade deadline and we’ve seen the most significant changes happening around the league. Let’s break down the point guard spot and examine which are the top 8 point guards in the league for your fantasy team.
No.1: Stephen Curry
Curry is considered to be even a candidate for the MVP award of the 2013-2014 season. He certainly is the best option for fantasy owners at the point guard spot. He is putting up incredible numbers almost every night, and of course, he is lighting it up from downtown.
No.2: John Wall
Wall has emerged this season as one of the best point guards in the NBA. In fact, he currently ranks second in our fantasy list and that’s thanks to his great numbers, 20.0 PPG, 8.7 APG, 4.3 RPG and 43.1 FG%.
No.3: Isaiah Thomas
The Sacramento Kings might be one of the worst teams in the league but they do have the third best point guard in the NBA, at least fantasy-wise. The Kings traded away Vasquez to give Thomas the starting job and he responded in a great way.
No.4: Damian Lillard
Lillard could also be the third best point guard, but he lost one spot to Thomas. The truth is that Lillard has been one of the major reasons the Portland Trail Blazers have found that much success up to now in the season. He has certainly made lots of fantasy owners who selected him earlier in the season happy.
No.5: Kyle Lowry
The Toronto Raptors were actively searching for a way to shop Kyle Lowry earlier in the season. Nonetheless, after his superb performances the team backed up. At present, Toronto lies at the second spot of the East and Lowry has a big part in that success.
No.6: Kyrie Irving
Whilst the Cleveland Cavaliers have been struggling all season long, Kyrie Irving is delivering with consistency. With 21.5 PPG, 6.3 APG and 3.4 RPG he is currently considered the sixth best point guard in the NBA, fantasy-wise.
No.7: Goran Dragic
The Phoenix Suns are one of the biggest surprises in the NBA this season. Playing in the tough Western Conference, the Suns rank seventh in a season when they were expected to be tanking. Goran Dragic has a leading role in this success. He was even considered a top candidate for the All-Star game but failed to make the team for the first time in his career.
No.8: Chris Paul
CP3 ranks as low as eighth in the list because of his extended absence due to a shoulder injury. It’s true that we expect him to reach his 100 percent over the next weeks. But at present, he can’t rank higher than No.8 for fantasy leagues.
