DFS PG: John Wall Leading All Positions

John Wall is one of the few Elite tier names across all Daily positions this evening. Wall is projected 45.63 FanDuel points to rank ahead of Isaiah Thomas and (distantly) Jeff Teague. Thomas and Wall both carry Elite price tags, but Wall’s versatile production makes him a more consistent contributor. The lower tiers lack safe value, forcing owners to focus on the upper tiers. Teague’s ceiling is limited, but his recent consistency results in a safe floor.

Russell Westbrook is an individual highlight; leading the Thunder back from an early deficit behind his 27th triple-double of the season. Westbrook showed a great leap in efficiency as he shot over 50% and cut down on his turnovers. He anchored the Oklahoma City offense with 38 points on 13-22 shooting (9-13 FT) and 12 assists. His defensive effort frustrated New York as he collected 14 rebounds, 3 steals, and 1 block. Westbrook lived up to his high price tag as his 74.8 FanDuel points led all Daily options.

Spencer Dinwiddie has cemented himself as the starting point guard in Brooklyn with Isaiah Whitehead relieving him off the bench. Dinwiddie was a key performer in last night’s game though the Nets again fell at home. He proved to be an all-around strong offensive option with 19 points on 7-12 shooting in addition to his 8 assists. His production on the defensive end was enough to place him into the upper ranks as Dinwiddie’s 11.38 value was the top mark for the position.

Patty Mills delivered a dynamic performance off the bench as he made his impact felt on both ends of the floor. San Antonio looked to the backup for only 18 minutes of action, though he was effective when on the court. Mills led the second unit with 13 points, but was even more effective as a facilitator with 6 assists. He added a decent defensive effort with 2 rebounds and 2 steals to round out overall value. Mills finished the evening with a 7.54 value that ranked second among all point guards.

Elite Tier Pick (+$8,500)

John Wall – $10400 – 45.629 Points

Standing as the top Elite option, John Wall has averaged 45.27 fantasy points a game. He and the Wizards will take on the Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse this evening. Indiana has been average against the position this season, ranking 17th in the league. Wall offers consistent production on both ends of the floor as an anchor for the Wizards. He has elevated his offensive play to become a more consistent scoring option on top of his Elite passing. The offense often runs through a pick and roll system between Wall and Gortat which may pose an issue for the young interior presence of Myles Turner.

High Tier Pick ($8,500 – $7,000)

Jeff Teague – $7200 – 33.532 Points

Jeff Teague stands in as the number one High tier option with a 33.74 fantasy average each night. The Pacers will be facing the Wizards at home this evening. Washington has been decent against the position as they rank 13th versus opposing point guards. Teague is a key facilitator for the Pacers as he offers strong passing and valuable scoring in a timely fashion. Indiana has seen a recent slide in production with struggles against this same Washington defense. He will be challenged by the athleticism of John Wall, though he offers a middle ground between the Elite tier and the lower punt options.

Low Tier ( -$5,000)

Terry Rozier – $3500 – 12.87 Points

Terry Rozier is one of the better Low tier options available this evening with a 12.76 fantasy average this year. Boston faces Chicago at the United Center tonight. The Bulls offer a favorable matchup as they rank 21st against opposing point guards. Rozier has shown flashes of being a promising point guard in his time off the bench. However, behind the heavy minutes and usage of Isaiah Thomas, he sees limited production on a more regular basis.
