Point Guard – Our featured site for the point guard position is DraftKings
Kyle Lowry (TOR) – Lowry was a huge disappointment last night in a favorable matchup with the Nuggets. He lands another above average matchup against the Suns who rank 26th in defensive efficiency against point guards and 29th in overall defensive efficiency. Lowry’s price tag around the industry is largely fair, but he grades out as a solid value given the ease of the matchup. Our opinion on usage ultimately comes down to site. Lowry grades out as our best value at the point guard position, but on tighter pricing sites he may not represent the best way to spend a larger percentage of your cap.
