DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK
Draft Paul George as a weekly fantasy starter in 2019-2020. His 3218 projected fantasy points puts him at #5 behind Luka Doncic and ahead of Ben Simmons. He is expected to be out through 10/21 which impacts his fantasy ranking. He has averaged 44.4 fantasy points in his past 77 games, which is more than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 39.2 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#6) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite forward. He is projected to be very good, but not one of the very best at his position. Paul George is expected to come up slightly short of last season's #2 fantasy position rank.
