Point Guard – Our featured site for the point guard position is DraftKings
Russell Westbrook (OKC) – Westbrook projects, once again, as our top overall scorer on this slate. However, it’s not the usual gap we have from Westbrook and the rest of the top plays. In tonight’s slate the group is bunched much tighter together and thus salary is a fine way to distinguish the top plays when building cash game rosters. Westbrook has a difficult matchup with Chris Paul and the Clippers defense that ranks second in defensive efficiency against the point guard position. Given Westbrook’s price point is modestly ahead of all of the other top plays and point guard is very deep, Westbrook is more of a secondary target on this slate.
