2011-2012 NBA Fantasy Basketball Point Guard Player Draft Rankings

Below are the initial NBA Fantasy Basketball Point Guard (PG) rankings for all thirty teams this season.  These might change a bit as players continue to move around.  I’m going to post these under the 2011-2012 Draft Rankings Tab at the top of the homepage so they will be easy to check as fantasy drafts approach.   Check back Tuesday for the Shooting Guard Rankings.



Tier 1 – The 2011-2012 Fantasy Basketball All-Stars

1 Derrick Rose (CHI) – It seems like everyone is going with Chris Paul at the top of the board this year, but give me Derrick Rose anytime.  Rose is clearly the better scorer putting up 25.0 a game compared to Paul’s 15.9.  Rose really overtook the top spot with his huge improvement with the three point shot, taking nearly 5 per game and hitting 33.2%.  Hopefully he can continue to improve and approach the 36-37% range.  Even with the 33.2% on threes, he still held his overall FG% to a very respectable 46.8%.  Rose will only get better from here.

2 Chris Paul (NOR) -  Paul is an easy choice at number 2, even though there is some concern about the possibility of a trade and concern over the knee still lingers in the back of my mind.  He did play in 80 games last season but his scoring was way down to a career low of 15.9 PPG.  Assists (9.8 per game) and Steals (2.4 per game) are his strong points.

3 Russell Westbrook (OKC) – Much like Rose, Westbrook continues to improve his game.  He raised his scoring to 21.9 per game while increasing his assist numbers to 8.2 per game.   His steals figure increased to 1.9 per game and he increased his FG%, 3PT% and FT% in 2010.   One important stat for Westbrook is the increase of field goal attempts to 17.1 per game, he’s a big part of the Thunder offense and will continue to be heavily involved.
