NBAwithBEE 2012-13 PG RANKINGS

The last of my 2012 fantasy basketball rankings comes with the Point Guard Position, arguably the position that has the most depth this season.  From #1 to #25 you got viable starters for your team, better yet if your league starts 2 PG’s you can find value later in drafts.  Derrick Rose is still rehabbing and probably won’t be back until January, maybe. 

 

Chauncy Billups will return sometime in December, same as Ricky Rubio for the T’Wolves.  John Wall is already out for 8 weeks with his knee, and it’s hard for him to develop a 3 point shot (at the moment), that’s the difference between the elite PG’s and Wall, he cant shoot the 3 and don’t expect overnight Derrick Rose success neither. 

Felton returns to New York where he was putting up all-star like numbers, can he do it again? I mean this Knicks squad is far more talented than the previous squad he was on, plus he now has Jason Kidd to learn from.  How will Jeremy Lin fare in Houston? Was it all a dream or is this Lin kid the real deal, i know opinions on both sides and all i’ll say is i hope for the best for Lin, but he’s nowhere near the top tier of PG’s but you’ll see it in my rankings where i have him.  How will rookie Austin Rivers do in New Orleans? I’m rooting for him.
