From a NBA Fantasy basketball perspective, there are many guards that are great picks – the most obvious are Harden, Doncic and Westbrook – but let’s analyse and see those with a lower price range that could bring excellent scores and good capital gains.
Damian Lillard (17,2 CR – POR)
The MVP of the bubble will find the Lakers and King Lebron in front of him in one of the most interesting clashes of this first round. After all the effort made to snatch the last useful ticket for the postseason, we doubt that Lillard and his teammates are willing to give up easily: we can expect great performances and many fantasy points from Dame.
Kyle Lowry (13,7 CR – TOR)
One of the fittest players against one of the teams that have the lowest chances to win in the first round. The experience of K-Low in addition to his skills as a scorer and passer (lately also as a rebounder) can be an excellent resource for your fantasy team. The price is still quite low, so it doesn’t take much to make an interesting capital gain.
Chris Paul (13,6 CR – OKC)
Talking about experience, CP3 is the man for you. In addition, the challenge against his former team will be a great incentive to show that not betting on him was a mistake. On paper, it will be the most balanced series of all and Paul will definitely want to do his best to bring it home.
Kemba Walker (11,3 CR – BOS)
At this price it is practically a steal: the Celtics have preserved him in these seeding games to make him ready to the challenge against Philadelphia, which – given the latest injuries – is not at the top. The Celtics want to prove they are viable candidates for the ring and KW wants to rock in his third postseason appearance.
Goran Dragic (8,5 CR – MIA)
The Dragon was a serious candidate for the Sixth Man of the Year award, so he wants to confirm his performance in the first round against Indiana. Also supported by the recent statements about Jimmy Butler and how he charges the team under pressure, his all-round performance will be key to bringing the series home quickly.
