Point Guard – Our featured site for the point guard position is FanDuel
Stephen Curry (GS)/Russell Westbrook (OKC) – With Curry and Westbrook on the slate, the decision up top is a challenging one. Both players project very similarly with a unique combination of floor and upside. Westbrook is on a back-to-back and on the road, but in an environment that projects as more competitive (Thunder are three point favorites while the Warriors are favored by 13). We’ve dealt with Curry’s blowout risk at home all season but a slip in the Warriors’ defense and the pursuit of 73 wins has seen Curry’s minutes elevated a bit down the stretch. Curry’s been held under 33 minutes in just four of the 14 games in March (averaging 34.1 minutes) despite nine of those games being decided by more than 10 points. Despite the elevated spread, Curry’s minutes variance has come down slightly. The two project identically in our system. Both project to surpass value thresholds and come with incredibly elevated floors. They’re great targets in all formats.
