Fantasy Basketball Guards Rankings

The first round is all about Stephen Curry, James Harden, Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook, but I am most interested in seeing how Damian Lillard performs sans LaMarcus Aldridge, Brook Lopez, Nicolas BatumWesley Matthews and Arron Afflalo
 
With an ADP of 15, Lillard is a great pick to start the second round of your fantasy basketball draft.  However, Aldridge and Lopez were replaced by Mason PlumleeEd Davis and Noah Vonleh to rotate in with Meyers LeonardAl-Farouq Aminu and Gerald Henderson will replace Batum and Matthews in the starting lineup.
 
The talent wasn't fully replaced, but it could lead to Lillard improving on 21pts, 6.2ast and 4.6 rebounds from last season.  He should be a lock for 20 shot attempts per game.
