Elvis Andrus's Fantasy Scouting Report

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

Elvis Andrus is a good value this week. He has a market rank of #14 while his projection rank (week 5) is #5. Week 5 shortstops comparisons show, Manny Machado (15 FP), Jean Segura (6 FP), Jurickson Profar (16 FP), Carlos Correa (17 FP), and Corey Seager (13 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Andrus but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 79% of leagues he is expected to produce 14.3 fantasy points (WK 5). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #14 shortstop of week 5. He is projected to be better than that (the #5 shortstop). Even though his per game projected FP average is not better than normal, he will benefit from playing a projected 7 games.

He is projected for 17.7 fantasy points in week 5 (#5 SS) in 7 games.


  • Based on 4/22 start percentages, Elvis Andrus is valued behind Profar and above Polanco but the projections rank these players in reverse order in week 5.
  • Elvis Andrus last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    DAILY FANTASY VALUE

    DRAFTKINGS VALUE (4/22): Projected for 7.2 DraftKings pts Elvis Andrus is the #8 ranked shortstop. At $4400 he is expected to be the #7 shortstop. At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $4K. Didi Gregorius is also priced at $4400, and Andrus is a better option at this price. These are 3 better options at lower salaries: Xander Bogaerts (8.3 FP), Jorge Polanco (7.8 FP), and Carlos Correa (7.3 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 7.8 FPs, a value reached in 41 of 117 games (35%). The combined 'cover percentage' for shortstops expected to start is 40%.

    FANDUEL VALUE: Based on a projected 9.3 FanDuel points, Andrus is fairly ranked. At $3400 he is expected to be the #10 shortstop. Using the salaries and projected points for healthy players in in today's pool to calculate expected points per dollar, Andrus is worth $3.3K. There are 2 other options at $3400 (Xander Bogaerts, Wilmer Difo) and Andrus is ranked #2 among the 3. Gleyber Torres (9.5 FP) is projected for more points at a lower salary. Based on salary, he is expected to have 9.4 FPs, a value reached in 43 of 117 games (37%). The combined 'cover percentage' for shortstops expected to start is 41%.

    Andrus is NOT in the SportsLine DraftKings optimal lineup or the FanDuel optimal lineup which are based on the computer model's projection. SportsLine.com also offers premium optimal lineups from Mike McClure, a professional DFS player who has over $1 million in career winnings. He uses his own proprietary model to find great DFS values and often differs from the computer in how a player is projected to play on a daily basis.

On DraftKings his floor was 0 and on FanDuel it was 3 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 20 and 28.4 on FanDuel.
