These are impressive stats indeed. Wall has averaged at least 41 fantasy points in each of his last seven games. He also scored at least 34 fantasy points in all but one game from December 1, 2015, through January 1, 2016.

Yes, we all know that Wall is one of the best point guards in the NBA, so we know that he's going to score a good number of fantasy points. However, they also show that he has been playing at a high-level All-Star level if not better for the past month.

The bottom line is that when John Wall is available to play, you should pick him. The chances of him disappointing are very low.
