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 RANKOVERALL RANKPLAYER, POS, TEAMNOTE
14Chris Paul, PG, LACGame’s best PG, will be leaned on to do everything for Doc.
25Stephen Curry, PG/SG, GSA little worried about career ankle issues, no Jarrett Jack.
37Kyrie Irving, PG, CLEThe additional bigs should give Kyrie all sorts of room to drive and dish.
48John Wall, PG, WASLove Wall, was a first-round talent in last two months of 12-13, healthy offseason.
511Derrick Rose, PG, CHII buy the perimeter game offseason work, excited for a really big season.
613Deron Williams, PG, BKNI buy the perimeter game offseason work, excited for a really big season/big Asts.
714Ricky Rubio, PG, MINAnother point I buy the improved perimeter game, fully recovered from ACL.
816Dwayne Wade, PG/SG, MIACareer-high FG% in 12-13, another solid year ahead.
918Damian Lillard, PG, PORBuying offseason improvements, FG% to go up, big season.
1024Ty Lawson, PG, DENNo Gallinari, no Iguodala, will have to do it all.
1129Tony Parker, PG, SAFire to win the title, elite when healthy.
1230Jeff Teague, PG, ATLWill be on all my teams, Millsap will help efficiency, one of my big breakouts.
1332Mike Conley, PG, MEMBoosted scoring, assists, fewer TOs when Gay left.
1433↓ Russell Westbrook, PG, OKCInjury changes everything, don’t like knee injury for guy that relies on explosiveness.
1539Brandon Jennings, PG, DETCould be elite, could go 2-17 some nights.  Another high risk/reward talent in DET.
1651Kemba Walker, PG, CHALower than almost anywhere else, don’t think Jefferson fixes bad FG%, low Asts.
1753Monta Ellis, PG/SG, DALExcited to see him play with Dirk, should have a solid season, slight scoring dip.
1854↓ Jrue Holiday, PG, NOWhile #1 NO scorer/disher, I find myself never coming close to Jrue at original #42 rank in drafts thus far.
1956Trey Burke, PG, UTAI’m still ready to take the big risk despite horrible Summer League showing.
2060George Hill, PG/SG, INDQuiet, unassuming, steady production.
2161Eric Bledsoe, PG/SG, PHXFlashed brilliance when starting, polarizing fantasy ranks, big upside.
2262↑ Jose Calderon, PG, DALI said in the original full rankings I needed to move him up, so I did.
2365Goran Dragic, PG, PHXStill upside there, and despite a “bust” last year, still produced at this rank’s level.
2471Rajon Rondo, PG, BOSNo need to rush him back in a big rebuilding year – despite him saying he’s already mentally ready.
2575Greivis Vasquez, PG/SG, SACThink there’s multi-cat upside, but ankle injury and IT2 issues remain.
2679Kyle Lowry, PG, TORYou know you’re getting good production, but only when he’s on the floor.
2785Brandon Knight, PG/SG, MILStill very young, think with actual talent around him could emerge.
2887Jeremy Lin, PG, HOUSome upside with reports he and Dwight looking good from the Dream, great Stls.
2993Raymond Felton, PG/SG, NYStill driving a high-powered offense, think Beno Udrih eats into a few minutes.
3095Steve Nash, PG, LAL39, lots of injuries last year, but still top 100 value.
3197Jamal Crawford, PG/SG, LACWill duplicate what we saw last year, which was top 100 worthy.
32102Isaiah Thomas, PG, SACAn unreal second half, potential is there but stifled by new regime/Vasquez.
33110Jameer Nelson, PG, ORLOladipo to play some at point, everyone healthy right now, avoiding.
34118Jarrett Jack, PG/SG, CLEWahhhhhh, I’m Jarrett Jack!  Will find time at the 2 late in games.
35119Michael Carter-Williams, PG, PHIThe FG% will be terrible, but minutes and opportunity are there for the gamble.
36122↑ Reggie Jackson, PG, OKCSure 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.
37124Randy Foye, PG/SG, DENGallinari hurt, no Brewer, no Iggy, no Koufos, Denver will need scoring.
38141Ramon Sessions, PG/SG, CHAWas on his way to a great 12-13 before a knee injury, should still see good mins.
39146Nate Robinson, PG/SG, DENNot 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.
40147Andre Miller, PG, DENPlayed in every game past 2 years, Nate Robinson steals the possible min. uptick.
41150Lou Williams, PG/SG, ATLStill recovering from the ACL, will be eased in, but still 2nd half upside.
42152Avery Bradley, PG/SG, BOSYou don’t really want any of the Celtics gaurds, but they’ll play.
43159Mario Chalmers, PG, MIAHe plays…
44171Mo Williams, PG/SG, PORProbably seeing the fewest minues since a rook, still will find time late in games.
45172Darren Collison, PG, LACThink he could see a tad of time at the 2, Bledsoe had value behind Paul too.
46190Jason Terry, PG/SG, BKNWon’t have much value unless Deron gets hurt, but very possible given history.
47191D.J. Augustin, PG, TORNot as good in fantasy as Terry, more likely Lowry gets hurt and D.J. gets mins.
48192Toney Douglas, PG/SG, GSCan 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.

        • JB Gilpin

          @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.

    • JB Gilpin

      @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.
