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:

Date Opponent Minutes Points Rebounds Assists Blocks Steals Turnovers Fantasy Pts
2-Dec v LAL 36 34 7 11 0 2 5 57.9
1-Dec @CLE 41 35 4 10 0 5 5 59.8
28-Nov v TOR 39 18 3 5 0 3 3 32.1
27-Nov @BOS 29 10 4 6 0 0 3 20.8
25-Nov @CHA 36 14 5 6 0 6 5 36

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.
