Point Guard – Our featured site for the point guard position is DraftDay
John Wall (WSH) – Wall leads the way at the point guard position with a matchup that’s tailor-made to his offensive style of play. Mike Conley suffers against pick-n-roll ball handlers (46 percent frequency, ranked in the 18th percentile in points per possession against the pick-n-roll ball handler), which is Wall’s most frequent play type (38 percent frequency, ranked in the 52nd percentile in points per possession as a pick-n-roll ball handler). Wall makes a bit more sense from a value perspective on DraftKings, where his price point is the most enticing (33 percent above the average cost of a roster spot) since he only needs around an average game (averaging 41 Fantasy points this season) in order to meet value. UPDATE: Mike Conley and even more importantly Marc Gasol is out. Wall’s matchup improves(Beno Udrih should draw the start for Memphis and he’s just as bad as Conley at defending the pick-n-roll) without Gasol protecting the rim. Wall becomes a highlighted value play on FanDuel.
