2019 FANTASY OUTLOOK AND PROJECTION: BENCH PLAYER
While not considered a weekly must start, Albert Almora is projected to be worth a spot on fantasy benches next season. His projected position rank based on season total fantasy points is #95 (at OF). At the end of the 2018 season he was owned in just 17 percent of leagues. This should go up next season. He is projected to average 2.41 fantasy points per game in 122 games. His projected rank for the upcoming season is down from where he finished last season.
SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND
Albert Almora was not a fantasy star but was worth starting most weeks. He was the #194 ranked fantasy player this season and the #68 OF. His value was boosted by staying healthy (144 GP). Based on average fantasy points he is the #110 OF. He peaked early in the season. He averaged 2.4 FPs in his first 47 games and 1.2 FP in his final 48 games. His standard deviation divided by his average is 1.3 which is close to the league ratio. He averaged 1.8 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 10 fantasy points.

CURRENT CAREER TREND AND STATISTICS
His fantasy point average held steady over the past 2 seasons, but given his age you would hope to see more improvement.
WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP
Out of 27 fantasy weeks, he was +50% above his weekly average of 9.6 FPs in 5 of them. He had 5 bad weeks where he was 50% below average.
DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP
He averaged 5.8 FD points and 4.8 DK points per game. We looked at all of his games that were between the 10th and 90th percentile where the 10th percentile is his floor and the 90th is his ceiling. When he was bad in DFS, he was really bad with a floor of zero points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 9 and 12.5 on FanDuel. He has had more bad FanDuel games (below average by 20%) than good games (20% above average), and the same was true on DraftKings. We are only including games where they were in the daily fantasy slate and played.
