Point Guard – Our featured site for the point guard position is FanDuel
Kyle Lowry (TOR) – Lowry’s expected value is the highest at the point guard position in a four game slate, and he’s also the most expensive option at his position. Still, an average performance puts Lowry within a point from reaching his value threshold around the industry, so his price is fair. A matchup against Dallas (ranked 23rd in defensive efficiency against point guards) could give him an efficiency boost, and a competitive environment (four point spread) should keep him on the floor for at least 35 minutes (his average minutes per game this season). Lowry’s attainable value threshold and high expected raw total in a favorable matchup makes him a core target in all formats for this short slate.
