Paul George was considered a sleeper in many fantasy basketball circles going into the 2011-12 season and he appears to be breaking out.
Analysis: Indiana shooting guard/small forward Paul George is off to a solid fantasy start in his first three games this year. George is hitting two three pointers per game and is averaging over five rebounds per as well. George is a perfect ten for ten from the stripe and is logging thirty-two minutes per game.
If you take a look at what George did in limited minutes as a rookie last year, it is impressive. George averaged one steal per game and nearly four rebounds per in just twenty minutes a game. George mainly came off of the bench last year but his minutes this year will play to his fantasy advantage. George’s long distance game seems to be a real strength this year and his young legs will be needed with the grueling schedule.
George is available in about half of fantasy leagues and he is going fast. As a shooting guard he’ll give you what you need and yet he still grabs enough boards to be a viable option at small forward.
