After a short offseason, the 2020-21 NBA season is almost here, and that also means the return of fantasy basketball.
As you prepare for your fantasy basketball draft, The Duel has you covered every step of the way. Our top-100 fantasy basketball player rankings are a great place to start, but sometimes you're looking for something more specific.
With that in mind, here are the top 10 point guards (based on Yahoo! position eligibility) for fantasy basketball drafts.
Fantasy Basketball Point Guard Rankings
10. Jrue Holiday, PG/SG, Milwaukee Bucks
9. Kyrie Irving, PG, Brooklyn Nets
8. Russell Westbrook, PG, Washington Wizards
A trade to the Washington Wizards shouldn't do much to hurt Russell Westbrook's fantasy outlook. Playing alongside Bradley Beal won't take the ball out of his hands any more than playing with James Harden did, and the Wiz are pretty shallow on offensive threats outside of the top two. Scott Brooks played Beal for 36.0 minutes per game (No. 5 in the NBA) last season, and he won't likely be shy about getting his new star on the floor, either.
7. Ben Simmons, PG, Philadelphia 76ers
6. LeBron James, PG/SG/SF, Los Angeles Lakers
5. Trae Young, PG, Atlanta Hawks
4. Stephen Curry, PG/SG, Golden State Warriors
The range of outcomes for Stephen Curry this season is pretty wide, but his upside is too good to ignore. He only suited up for one game after returning from a broken hand, but he went off for 23-7-6 despite having a poor day from deep (3-of12). He'll be dealing with his weakest supporting cast in years, but his potential for increased usage could more than make up for that.
3. Damian Lillard, PG, Portland Trail Blazers
2. Luka Doncic, PG/SG, Dallas Mavericks
1. James Harden, PG/SG, Houston Rockets
Our No.1-ranked player at any position, James Harden naturally lands at the top of the PG list. Even if we just look at games in which Russell Westbrook played, James Harden had a huge 34.8% usage rate last year. He's going to get his looks no matter what. The Beard has led all players in fantasy scoring in each of the last two seasons, and the only real risk is that he gets traded to a team that wants to take the ball out of his hands. It's hard to imagine any team wanting to trade for Harden only to immediately make him unhappy in that way, however.
