NBA season 2020/2021 is really close! And Dunkest Fantasy Basketball is ready to start again.
In view of this, therefore, we have prepared a series of tips to help less experienced fantasy coaches to deal with their fantasy basketball choices (both in the “One vs all” mode or in the Draft mode against friends).
In this article we will give advices on the best guards, analyzing the hottest names but also the potential surprises.
Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers) – 18.0 cr
It is always Dame Time, but now even a little more: the returns after the long injuries of Collins and Nurkic helped the Portland guard to find stimulus after playing in the Playoffs knowing that he did not have enough time to work on the choral performance of the team. This motivation can only push Lillard to give his best next season, hoping to bring that much-coveted NBA title to Oregon.
Trae Young (Atlanta Hawks) 16.3 cr
The rivalry with Luka Doncic (a too obvious player to be recommended…) initially seemed to have mentally conditioned the young Atlanta player. But in the end led to the birth of an All-Star. His ballistic skills are matched by few other players and the roster that has been created in this free agency can only give the right incentives to Trae Young to do even more this season. If you are looking for a strong guard to partner with marginal players, he can be a great name.
Ja Morant (Memphis Grizzlies) – 13.7 cr
Last season’s Rookie of the Year has come one step away from reaching the Playoffs despite important absences from the team. His abilities and his attitude on the field have increased more and more until reaching an amazing level for a player who has only played in the NBA for a year. His future is bright and the chances of him becoming a crack at a Dunkest level are very high.
De’Aaron Fox (Sacramento Kings) – 13.1 cr
Let’s move on to another young talent who, after starting last season a bit cold, has grown almost as fast as his accelerations. With the departure of Bogdanovic his role in Sacramento will become even more important, most likely translating into very satisfying Dunkest performances. As a second guard for your team it is difficult to find better without breaking the bank.
Mike Conley (Utah Jazz) – 9.1 cr
The player had not settled at all when he arrived at the Utah Jazz and the performances of the first months had made the management fear that they had made a mistake in signing him. From the summer until the final defeat at the Playoffs, however, his condition has increased as his confidence, showing his talent to the full. If you are looking for a guard at a low price, and with a name not too flashy for the inexperienced eye, you can well choose that of Mike Conley.
Seth Curry (Philadelphia 76ers) – 8.1 cr
Let’s end by talking about the only member of the Curry family who this year participated in the final stages of the NBA competition. His season showed a side of the player that had often gone unnoticed: in fact, in addition to the shooting skills that we all know, he proved to be an important pawn in a winning project. Now that he has passed to the 76ers, his role can only be the same and in our opinion he will also be able to bring home more than one satisfaction in Philadelphia.
