Point Guard – Our featured site for the point guard position is DraftKings
Stephen Curry (GSW) – Golden State has to win the next four games in order to be penciled in the history books as the team with the best record in the NBA, but they’ll have their work cut out for them tonight. The San Antonio Spurs (ranked first in overall team defensive efficiency) are in town and they’re not resting anyone, making this a challenging matchup for Curry and company. We have him projected close to his high 40s value threshold this evening, but of the high priced studs we’re pursuing in this slate, Curry is the least attractive given the matchup. We’d rather pay for James Harden or DeMarcus Cousins, but if you simply want to pay for the top point guard, Curry represents the highest projected scorer at the position.
