Point Guard – Our featured site for the point guard position is FanDuel
Russell Westbrook (OKC) – There’s no denying that Westbrook is the top play at the point guard position tonight, as is the case almost every night he suits up. His current value threshold around the industry is 49 Fantasy points, which is mostly fair. Westbrook is a worthy “stud” to build around in cash games tonight, but there are other positions (like shooting guard and center) that carry a higher amount of opportunity cost. Unless cheaper options emerge at those positions, it will be difficult to squeeze Westbrook in cash games. We love him in tournaments.
