It is a Solid Fantasy Season for Dwyane Wade


Dwyane Wade is not a fantasy star but is worth starting most weeks. He is the #79 ranked fantasy player this season and the #18 shooting guard. His value would have been slightly higher if he played more games. Based on average fantasy points he is the #16 shooting guard. His age did not stop him from getting stronger throughout the season. He trended up as the season went on. In his first 23 games he averaged 24.3 FPs. He improved to 26.4 in the next 25 games. In his final stretch of games he improved to 28.4 per game. His fantasy production is stable and he is not as volatile as most players based on a below average standard deviation. Our projected ceiling for Wade when he 'goes off' is 54 fantasy points (his average is 26.4FPs) with a floor of 5 points.
