John Wall and the Washington Wizards haven't been performing at a high level this season. The Wizards are 7-9, 12th in the Eastern Conference, and lost to the Lakers -- the worst team in the Western Conference -- last Wednesday.
Despite the fact that they aren't performing well as a team, John Wall made some significant improvement to his fantasy stock this week. He averaged nearly 60 fantasy points in each of the Wizards' two games this week.
Here's a table to show how Wall performed in each of his last five games:
Wall is the most expensive point guard for Friday's games, at a cost os $9,000. If you look at his season averages, his Salary/FPPG is at $245.23 per game which isn't a good bang for your buck. But if you look at just Wall's last two games, that Salary/FPPG goes down to $152.93, which is a hell of a deal. Therefore, go ahead and pick him tonight in your one-day fantasy lineup.
The Wizards' last two games definitely indicate that he's determined to get the Wizards back on track, even if that means taking over more as a scorer. If Wall averages well over 20 points a game while maintaining the rest of his stat line with rebounds, assists, and steals, he'll be a point guard you want in your lineup every time he's available.
