It was recently announced that John Wall is going to miss the remainder of the season for the Washington Wizards. Up until this point of the season. John Wall has missed 5 total games. We are going to look at how this will affect DFS picks for the players on the Washington Wizards.
The person who benefits the most is Bradley Beal. He is averaging 53.8 DraftKings points in 5 games. His usage is 31.9%. His average salary during that time is 8160. Thomas Bryant is your best value play. He averages 34.05 DraftKings points in only 28.4 minutes per game. According to the numbers Otto Porter doesn’t benefit from John Wall being off the floor. His plus/minus is -5.9 with John Wall off the floor. View the table below to get a glance of the numbers with John Wall off the floor.

I think you play Bradley Beal in Cash and you can use him most nights in GPP contest. Thomas Bryant and Trevor Ariza will also be players to look at going forward. I really like Thomas Bryant in GPP contest. Another player not listed above is Troy Brown. His minutes and usage may go up with John Wall off the court. In his last game he scored 16.50 DraftKings points in 17 minutes with a Usage percentage of 13.9%.
To recap. Bradley Beal is a stud. We will see that going forward with some great fantasy number. I think he is must play when he is on the floor if his salary allows it.
