Point Guard – Our featured site for the point guard position is DraftDay

Top Play:

Russell Westbrook (OKC) – The question isn’t whether Russell Westbrook is the top play (he’s the top overall play today). My question to you is; are you willing to play cash games tonight without Westbrook in your lineup? Without Kevin Durant, Westbrook’s usage rate jumps to 43.7 percent (his baseline with Durant is 38 percent). Indiana is just around average against point guards (ranked 16th in defensive efficiency against point guards) but Westbrook has shown time and again that matchups don’t slow him down. On a short slate, Westbrook’s security combined with his immense upside can’t be ignored in any format.
