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 shooting guards (based on Yahoo! position eligibility) for fantasy basketball drafts.

Fantasy Basketball Shooting Guard Rankings

10. Zach LaVine, SG/SF, Chicago Bulls

9. Jrue Holiday, PG/SG, Milwaukee Bucks

8. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, SG/SF, Oklahoma City Thunder

With Chris Paul out of town, expect Shai Gilgeous-Alexander to have the ball in his hands a lot more this season. In games played alongside Paul, Gilgeous-Alexander posted a 23.6% usage rate. In two games he played without Paul, SGA's usage skyrocketed to 36.0%. Adding solid production with peripheral numbers (6.1 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.7 blocks per 36 minutes last year), Gilgeous-Alexander could be in for a serious breakout season.

7. Bradley Beal, SG/SF, Washington Wizards

6. Kawhi Leonard, SG/SF, Los Angeles Clippers

5. Devin Booker, SG/SF, Phoenix Suns

The Phoenix Suns may not have to lean as heavily on Devin Booker to carry the team after an offseason of additions that included Chris Paul, but that shouldn't hurt Book's fantasy value much. Booker's best fantasy season was his 2018-19 campaign, and that also happened to be the year he posted his highest assist rate. Spreading the ball and seeing a potential boost in efficiency from getting set up for more high-quality looks should do wonders for his upside.

4. LeBron James, PG/SG/SF, Los Angeles Lakers

3. Stephen Curry, PG/SG, Golden State Warriors

2. Luka Doncic, PG/SG, Dallas Mavericks

Luka Doncic finished with the fifth-most fantasy points of any player last season, in just his second year in the NBA. Even if Doncic has somehow already hit his peak at 21 years old, he's still worth drafting this high. But if he continues to develop, the sky is really the limit, and it wouldn't be any sort of a surprise if next offseason we see him ranked No. 1.

1. James Harden, PG/SG, Houston Rockets
