As we wrap up the early returns around the Association, we take a look at point guards. The elite point guards provide scoring, assists and steals, while the rest contribute in just two or even only one of the categories. Obviously its important to grab your point guards during the draft or auction as the chances of grabbing a "great" one during the season through free agency or waivers is doubtful. The best chance to improve your lot mid-season is to find emerging rookies or players getting increased playing time due to injury. From time to time a point may move to two guard, opening up a spot for some new talent.
Time to take a trip across the Association in search of help for your fantasy roster. The regular season finale is right around the corner and time is running out to make a push. We will take a look at each position, providing a suggested list of players available through free agency or waivers that are available in more than 50% of Flea Flicker leagues. We begin with the point guard crop.
The NBA tipped off the 2011/12 season with a tremendous slate of Christmas Day games. Although the season has been shortened from 82 to 66 games, there will never be a shortage of action. For the first time, we are seeing teams playing back, to back, to back games. The schedule is so compact that some teams are expecting less than a dozen practices during the entire season! Given the pace of the schedule, the older teams may be at a disadvantage and bench play is more important than ever. Fantasy leagues are taking note and many are holding their auctions/drafts after the opener to get a better feel for rotations and flow.
