As I mentioned the past couple weeks, every Wednesday I will release tiers for G/F/C in rotating fashion.  Here’s the original tiersupdated Guard tiers, and last week’s Forward tiers.  Starting next week, I’ll split this into a morning and afternoon post (morning for recap and afternoon for tiers) to better explain the movement taking place.
