Point Guard – Our featured site for the point guard position is DraftKings
Chris Paul (LAC) – Paul projects as our top scorer at the point guard position but a difficult matchup against the Spurs top rated defense coupled with a full price tag makes him an unappealing cash game target. Paul is interesting on tournaments, particularly on DraftKings ($9,400) where the tag is a bit more affordable. The ownership should be very low given the depth of point guard options and Paul has demonstrated upside against the Spurs in recent matchups. In his last four regular season games against the Spurs, he’s averaged 24.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, 11 assists, and 1.5 steals per game. No need to consider Paul in cash games but with the prospect of low ownership, he’s a solid tournament target on DraftKings.
