We’ve covered the top guards in the NBA, now let’s cover the fantasy basketball sleeper guards to roster in your dfs lineups. SuperDraft will have your daily fantasy basketball action all season long!
Must-Have Guard Sleepers For Fantasy Basketball
A sleeper is a low-to-mid floor type player with a high ceiling. These are the players that can set you atop the SuperDraft leaderboards with their high multipliers combined with their potential for HUGE games.
Spencer Dinwiddie, Brooklyn Nets
In his 2020 campaign, Dinwiddie only participated in 3 games. That being said, in his last full season he averaged 20.6 points, 6.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds per game. Those are very solid numbers and on a Brooklyn team that’s full of firepower, we can expect his fantasy output to reflect his talent. He has the ability the facilitate scoring for himself and the other 4 on the court for this Brooklyn offense. Dinwiddie is worth consideration in plenty of matchups.
Cade Cunningham, Detroit Pistons
Cunningham was the #1 overall pick in this year’s NBA draft and has joined a Detroit Pistons team in need of help. Cunningham will be the everyday starter and if the Pistons would like to win, they will be building an offense around the talented Rookie. In his one season at Oklahoma, he averaged 20.1 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. Though we don’t expect the exact same stat lines in the obviously faster-paced NBA game, he will be a key part in their rebuild.
Kevin Porter Jr., Houston Rockets
It’s tough to consider KPJ a sleeper at this point. In his 26 game stint after being called up, he put on an impressive display of athleticism and basketball prowess. He averaged 16.6 points, 6.3 assists, 3.8 rebounds during that short time. Recently confirmed as the starting guard for the Rockets, KPJ is set to have an incredible statistical year. Undoubtedly working on cleaning up his turnovers and shooting percentages, the talent and athleticism are there. I personally will be featuring KPJ rather frequently in my lineup recommendations. He’s one of the best sleeper fantasy basketball guards in the entire NBA this year.
Devonte’ Graham, New Orleans Pelicans
Headed to NOLA in a trade deal after losing the starting role to Lamelo Ball last season, Graham is joining Zion on the Pels in his 21-22 campaign. Throughout his first three seasons, Graham has averaged 13.3 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 5.4 assists. Not an overly impressive statline, however, consider his assists likely to skyrocket when on the court in NOLA. The Pelicans are featuring a solid starting 5 that include, Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram, and Nickiel Walker-Alexander. There will be plenty of assist opportunities, and while points scored make a difference. This is fantasy basketball consideration and Graham is worthy of notice.
Reggie Jackson, Los Angeles Clippers
Jackson played a huge role in the Clippers post season last year. In the final eight games he averaged 21.4 points, 4.4 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 1.6 steals. With Kawhi’s timeline to return being questionable, Jackson will be the Clippers starter. Jackson will be in a talented lineup with Paul George, Marcus Morris Sr., and Eric Bledsoe. The Clippers are a strong team and with Jackson as a fasciliator, the Clippers, and your daily fantasy basketball lineups, are in a good shape for a solid boost. Maybe not a Kawhi Leonard boost, but Jacksons multiplier should be ideal on SuperDraft to put on great fantasy numbers.
