As the way of the goose, or some sort of idiomatic phrase attempting to explain current times, PGs are the most prevalent position early in rankings.  Having the ball in your hands in today’s NBA is good enough to be fantasy worthy.  Just ask Michael-Carter Williams.  With 10 guys PG eligible in my top-20, I’m heavy on the PG like Chunk on Baby Ruth.  Remember, these positions are broken down on Yahoo position eligibility (view all top 200 here), so there won’t be direct positional crossover to other fantasy sites:

2013-2014 Fantasy PG Rankings

(updated Oct. 8)

POS RANK OVERALL RANK PLAYER, POS, TEAM NOTE
1 4 Chris Paul, PG, LAC Game’s best PG, will be leaned on to do everything for Doc.
2 5 Stephen Curry, PG/SG, GS A little worried about career ankle issues, no Jarrett Jack.
3 7 Kyrie Irving, PG, CLE The additional bigs should give Kyrie all sorts of room to drive and dish.
4 8 John Wall, PG, WAS Love Wall, was a first-round talent in last two months of 12-13, healthy offseason.
5 11 Derrick Rose, PG, CHI I buy the perimeter game offseason work, excited for a really big season.
6 13 Deron Williams, PG, BKN I buy the perimeter game offseason work, excited for a really big season/big Asts.
7 14 Ricky Rubio, PG, MIN Another point I buy the improved perimeter game, fully recovered from ACL.
8 16 Dwayne Wade, PG/SG, MIA Career-high FG% in 12-13, another solid year ahead.
9 18 Damian Lillard, PG, POR Buying offseason improvements, FG% to go up, big season.
10 24 Ty Lawson, PG, DEN No Gallinari, no Iguodala, will have to do it all.
11 29 Tony Parker, PG, SA Fire to win the title, elite when healthy.
12 30 Jeff Teague, PG, ATL Will be on all my teams, Millsap will help efficiency, one of my big breakouts.
13 32 Mike Conley, PG, MEM Boosted scoring, assists, fewer TOs when Gay left.
14 33 ↓ Russell Westbrook, PG, OKC Injury changes everything, don’t like knee injury for guy that relies on explosiveness.
15 39 Brandon Jennings, PG, DET Could be elite, could go 2-17 some nights.  Another high risk/reward talent in DET.
16 51 Kemba Walker, PG, CHA Lower than almost anywhere else, don’t think Jefferson fixes bad FG%, low Asts.
17 53 Monta Ellis, PG/SG, DAL Excited to see him play with Dirk, should have a solid season, slight scoring dip.
18 54 ↓ Jrue Holiday, PG, NO While #1 NO scorer/disher, I find myself never coming close to Jrue at original #42 rank in drafts thus far.
19 56 Trey Burke, PG, UTA I’m still ready to take the big risk despite horrible Summer League showing.
20 60 George Hill, PG/SG, IND Quiet, unassuming, steady production.
21 61 Eric Bledsoe, PG/SG, PHX Flashed brilliance when starting, polarizing fantasy ranks, big upside.
22 62 ↑ Jose Calderon, PG, DAL I said in the original full rankings I needed to move him up, so I did.
23 65 Goran Dragic, PG, PHX Still upside there, and despite a “bust” last year, still produced at this rank’s level.
24 71 Rajon Rondo, PG, BOS No need to rush him back in a big rebuilding year – despite him saying he’s already mentally ready.
25 75 Greivis Vasquez, PG/SG, SAC Think there’s multi-cat upside, but ankle injury and IT2 issues remain.
26 79 Kyle Lowry, PG, TOR You know you’re getting good production, but only when he’s on the floor.
27 85 Brandon Knight, PG/SG, MIL Still very young, think with actual talent around him could emerge.
28 87 Jeremy Lin, PG, HOU Some upside with reports he and Dwight looking good from the Dream, great Stls.
29 93 Raymond Felton, PG/SG, NY Still driving a high-powered offense, think Beno Udrih eats into a few minutes.
30 95 Steve Nash, PG, LAL 39, lots of injuries last year, but still top 100 value.
31 97 Jamal Crawford, PG/SG, LAC Will duplicate what we saw last year, which was top 100 worthy.
32 102 Isaiah Thomas, PG, SAC An unreal second half, potential is there but stifled by new regime/Vasquez.
33 110 Jameer Nelson, PG, ORL Oladipo to play some at point, everyone healthy right now, avoiding.
34 118 Jarrett Jack, PG/SG, CLE Wahhhhhh, I’m Jarrett Jack!  Will find time at the 2 late in games.
35 119 Michael Carter-Williams, PG, PHI The FG% will be terrible, but minutes and opportunity are there for the gamble.
36 122 ↑ Reggie Jackson, PG, OKC Sure he’s only got the starting gig until Westbrook is back, but Jackson will still get minutes as Russell is eased back in and tremendous upside to start the year.
37 124 Randy Foye, PG/SG, DEN Gallinari hurt, no Brewer, no Iggy, no Koufos, Denver will need scoring.
38 141 Ramon Sessions, PG/SG, CHA Was on his way to a great 12-13 before a knee injury, should still see good mins.
39 146 Nate Robinson, PG/SG, DEN Not a fan, but will get some run as the 1/2 off the bench and is being reported he could play some with Lawson in shortest backcourt ever.  Next they’ll bring in Spud Webb.
40 147 Andre Miller, PG, DEN Played in every game past 2 years, Nate Robinson steals the possible min. uptick.
41 150 Lou Williams, PG/SG, ATL Still recovering from the ACL, will be eased in, but still 2nd half upside.
42 152 Avery Bradley, PG/SG, BOS You don’t really want any of the Celtics gaurds, but they’ll play.
43 159 Mario Chalmers, PG, MIA He plays…
44 171 Mo Williams, PG/SG, POR Probably seeing the fewest minues since a rook, still will find time late in games.
45 172 Darren Collison, PG, LAC Think he could see a tad of time at the 2, Bledsoe had value behind Paul too.
46 190 Jason Terry, PG/SG, BKN Won’t have much value unless Deron gets hurt, but very possible given history.
47 191 D.J. Augustin, PG, TOR Not as good in fantasy as Terry, more likely Lowry gets hurt and D.J. gets mins.
48 192 Toney Douglas, PG/SG, GS Can score off the bench in a fast-paced offense, Curry’s ankles iffy.

    Where would westbrooke be drafted now that he is out for 4-6 weeks?

      @Rob: I’m moving him way down. Having a second surgery to try and fix sweeling for a guy that depends on explosiveness is no bueno. Also moving Durant to #1 overall as I was against the grain on that one, but not any more. Going to try and get updated rankings to reflect that by the end of the week.

    not sure why you rank Kyrie so high, he is a huge injury prone (I’ll take the “under” on 65 games this season), and he is doesn’t Paul/Curry caliber stats that worth the risk.

    also I think Conley should be ranked higher towards 20-25. he is super stable and durable PG who brought top 24 value last year.

    Like your Teague projection. good player to target IMO.

      @omer: Don’t quite follow what you said first past the injury label, which is definitely a factor to consider. Yes he isn’t Paul or Curry but he’s the next best thing past those guys. Can’t argue with you too much on Conley but I think I have him higher than most. Obviously glad to hear others like the Teague call, my ranking will have him on virtually all my teams. Thanks for reading!

        @JB Gilpin:

        regarding Kyrie, I meant is is not providing elite per game value, so he’s not worth the risk for 8 pick in my opinion. I would rather pick him towards 15-16.

          @omer: Ah gotcha, well I think he will given the health, with the additional talent of bigs they’ve brought in and Jack will play some at the 1 with Kyrie out there, giving him some time off the ball occasionally.

    I need to add a 3rd PG in my 12-team, 9-Cat Roto Dynasty League

    Team so far is: Conley, Jennings, Harden, Batum, Pau, Kanter (and Wiggins on rights for next year)

    I’m looking at Hill vs. Calderon. I want Jose’s elite AST totals but Hill contributes across the board and is 6 years younger.

    Do you think Hill’s the better pick despite the AST dip?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @jon: Nice core of guys! Man that’s a tough one… As I mention on Calderon I want to move him up and Hill has limited upside. Since I think your core is so solid, I think I might go with the upside of Calderon and all the assists he could rack up this year.

    Good rankings man. Wanted to see if I can get your thoughts on some keepers…

    10 team keeper league; 3 keepers per year; auction draft $200 cap

    Trying to keep:
    1)John wall $15
    2)Tobias Harris $1

    Can choose from the below for a third;

    Vasquez $1 ; Ryan Anderson $23; al horford $39; mike Conley $22; collision $1; boozer $14; gortat $16; varejao $6.

    Not sure if I should lock in some big names at fair value (e.g, horford) or try and keep I cheap. Think my first two are the right moves but not sure about the third. Thanks in advance.

      @Bc: Thanks man! Agree on your first two keepers. With that amount of budget, I think it’s between Horford and Conley. I think with the depth of solid guards, you’ll be able to get some good points in the draft so I’d go Horford.
