This article is part of our NBA Draft Kit series.
With a hectic NBA offseason only just beginning to wind down, the landscape of the league looks considerably different than this time last year. All-Star players shifted teams and conferences in shocking numbers this offseason, both through trades and free agency. The point guard position was no exception to the madness, with notable stars like Chris Paul switching teams and fantasy studs like Russell Westbrook, James Harden, and Isaiah Thomas adding big-name teammates.
Despite the eventful summer, this year's point guard rankings should look familiar to fantasy basketball veterans. While rosters around the NBA may have seen shake-ups, the deepest position in fantasy basketball remains as valuable as ever.
Owners looking to prioritize commodities like assists and steals will want to pay especially close attention to the position. With the NBA becoming increasingly perimeter-oriented, stocking up on elite floor generals is a strategy worth considering when preparing for a draft. However, it's also worth noting that there is no absence of talent at the point guard slot. While it may be tempting to fill the spot with a first-round talent like Curry or Westbrook, strong options at point guard will be available well into the middle rounds of most drafts.
