In 2008, Matthew Berry wrote an article entitled NBA Draft Day Manifesto, which were his supposed keys to succeeding in the fantasy hoops world.
In his article, he wrote about the necessity of point guards and power forwards or at least players that produce like them.
Before reading this article, I had never once tried my hand at fantasy basketball. I thought it would be too tasking.
Then I remembered I played fantasy baseball, so everything else should probably be a cake walk.
Regardless, I assembled three teams my first season. All three won their respective leagues.
The next year, after heeding Berry's advice, I drafted10 teams. Nine of them won, the other placed second.
This last year, I decided 10 teams wasn't enough. I created a new user name on ESPN with the sole intention of drafting more than ten teams. I ended up drafting 12. Ten won, two placed second.
Every year, I am the guy who overanalyzes every draft pick he makes, but I do it using Berry's guidelines. And every year, I succeed.
The shooting guard position is tough to draft. It's really hard to find a shooting guard who will produce in multiple categories, instead of just providing a scoring punch.
You have to find a shooting guard who will produce like a point guard with assists and like a power forward with rebounds but remain true to his own position and provide points and threes.
Without further ado, here are next season's top 10 fantasy shooting guards.
