FWIW, for my assessment of PGs, I put as high of a premium on efficiency as I do on production. That's why I like to look at the PER/USG Ratio. It gives me a basic idea of how productive a guy is (PER) in relation to how much he dominates the action, or the ball (USG). That said, guys that maintain efficiency of production at higher minutes played per game will get an edge in my rankings.

Notables not making the cutoff for consideration as a top-ten PG this season: Wall, Holiday, Vasquez, Lillard, Jennings, Nelson, Felton, M. Williams, Lin.

If for the fun of it others want to put up their top-ten, I'll put up mine also in the comments section.
