Jose Altuve's Fantasy Scouting Report

2019 FANTASY OUTLOOK AND PROJECTION: LOOKING GOOD

Jose Altuve is projected to be the best fantasy second baseman in the upcoming season. In 2018, he was owned in 99 percent of leagues and it will be at least this high next season as well. He is projected to average 3.32 fantasy points per game in 157 games. His projected rank for the upcoming season is up slightly from where he finished last season.

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Jose Altuve had a good fantasy season and was a 'second tier' fantasy star. He was the number #6 ranked 2B and the #58 ranked player overall. He would be in the elite class of 2Bs if he had played more games. Based on average fantasy points he was the #4 2B. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 46 games he averaged 3.7 fantasy points which was higher than his start (2.7 FP) and his ending average (2.6 FP). Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Altuve can be considered a consistent fantasy player. He averaged 3 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 14 fantasy points.

STATISTICAL DROPOFF FROM PREVIOUS SEASON

Based on his fantasy point average, he is on a downward trend. His average fantasy points decreased by 17% this season.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 17.1 fantasy points per week and had 5 weeks where he came up short (below 50% of average) and had 4 weeks where he was +50% above average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

He averaged 9.9 FD points and 7.6 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 15 and 21.7 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.
