When the 2012 fantasy basketball season tipped off, Washington Wizards PG John Wall was already slated to miss a good chunk of the first part of the season with a knee injury. He slipped down draft boards as a result and some fantasy owners simply avoided him entirely.
Upon his return last year, though, Wall ended up posting stellar numbers. The point guard averaged a very respectable 18.5 points and 7.6 assists per contest. He had an amazing second half and the veteran carried over his success right into this fantasy season.
Wall is currently posting career-high in points (19.7), assists (8.7), rebounds (4.1), steals (2), three-pointers made (1.2), and even free throw percentage (85.1 %). He has done everything for fantasy fans and deserves to be on a short list for fantasy MVP this season.
JW is an extremely confident scorer and has put the team on his back at times this season. He constantly leads the team in field goal attempts and it had only added to the one-guard’s daily fantasy value. He is one of the few point guards that is healthy that has the potential to post 20 points and eight dimes each game.
Wall has finally taken the step to becoming an elite fantasy point guard this year. He is putting up top-five PG numbers and has continued to shine amongst Washington’s lackluster offense. He will be one player worth leaning on down the stretch this fantasy season.
