How you looking at guard? So many categories, hard to get 'em all covered with one player. I have always struggled addressing field goal percentage and three pointers. I have always leaned towards the point guard types, obviously contributing more assists and in many cases more likely to pickup steals. Very general observation, but a guide nonetheless. So what's available in free agency or on the waivers in your league? We have taken a look and provide you some options, based on players that are available in more than 50% of Flea Flicker fantasy basketball leagues.
Check out our 2012 Fantasy Baseball Rankings.
Guard Cheat Sheet
Jeremy Lin- NEW YORK - Any chance this kid is still avalaible? Just thought I would ask. You know what to do if he is. And do it now! (Lin is currently in 73% of Flea Flicker leagues, so I know some of you can get him.)
Mo Williams- LA CLIPPERS- 48% Williams value surfaced when Chris Paul was down, now with Chauncey Billups out, Williams certainly is worthy of a roster spot. Eric Bledsoe is a wildcard.
Jordan Crawford- WASHINGTON- 46% The Wizards made a change on the bench, and are looking at younger players across the board. Keep an eye on the status of free agent to be Nick Young.
Mario Chalmers- MIAMI- 39% You would think Chalmers would be more useful in assists, but Wade and James like the ball in their hands. Chalmers can help you in three point shooting.
Brandon Knight- DETROIT- 38% Ben Gordon is the loser in the Detroit backcourt situation. Rodney Stuckey and Knight appear the Pistons backcourt for the present and future.
Gilbert Arenas- LA LAKERS?- 38% It is truly amazing how far Agent Zero has fallen. It wasn't long ago he was a sure fire first round pick. If the Lakers do sign him, he is worth a test run.
O.J. Mayo- MEMPHIS- 48% So much talent, when will he put it all together. The Grizzlies have tried to move him on several occassions, keep an eye on things as we approach the trade deadline.
Marshon Brooks- NEW JERSEY- 23% Was the toast of rookie surprises early on before injuries. He is very popular in fantasy circles and benefits playing alongside Deron Williams.
Evan Turner- PHILADELPHIA- 23% I really like this guy. Such a well rounded player and in a good situation on an up and coming Sixers team. One day soon, he is going to really take off.
J.R. Smith- NEW YORK- 23% One of a trio of Nuggets who opted for China. It came down to the Clippers and Knicks and I guess the lure of playing next to Lin was too much to bear.
