Default Josh Smith or John Wall?

Who do you think is a better pick up for fantasy?

Default Re: Josh Smith or John Wall?

I'd go for Smith. Helps out in more areas and will have a great FG%. It's tough to really make this call unless we see what the rest of your team looks like though, but in terms of who to go with as a draft choice first I think Smith is the better option.

I disagree; I think Wall. It's his team and he can realistically put up 18 and 10 with 2 steals a game. He also gets around 4 boards. Again, I think the above is a realistic stat-line for him and I wouldn't be surprised to see him play even better. He has huge breakout potential this year.

Wall will put up 18.6 ppg, 9.6 apg, 4.9 rpg, 2.0 spg this year. Is skinny Josh Smith gonna do better than that...debateable I guess..but i find that Wall is much more of a lock to do his stuff.

I'd take Wall this season. Smith is what he is at this point in his career. Wall still has tons of upside.

Depends on the league, how many teams there are and if it's H2H or roto.

Couple things to consider, PG is probably the position with the steepest drop off, there are a lot of great PG's, but if you're in a deep league you'll never find quality pg's on the waiver wire, but you can always find a FA PF who contributes. That being said, there are very few players in the entire league who contribute in as many categories and Smith does, in a roto league he will help fill up your entire stat sheet.
