Willians Astudillo's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Most already consider Willians Astudillo to be a good starting catcher, but the projections indicate he is an elite fantasy option. Based on ownership percentage (59%), Willians Astudillo has a market rank of #15 among catchers. He is projected to be the #6 catcher. Even if he is owned in plenty of leagues, he is still undervalued and if you act quickly there is a clear buy low opportunity. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better catcher option available. He is projected for 206 fantasy points in 71 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#8) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Willians Astudillo behind Vazquez and above McCann but the projections rank Willians Astudillo over Vazquez.

Make sure to visit Sportsline to for DFS and betting advice. We have picks on every game and line.

His value decreases in leagues where winning specific categories is important because he has more relative weaknesses than strengths.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

Willians Astudillo is a good value the rest of the week. He has a market rank of #15 while his projection rank (rest of week 11) is #3. In week 12 rankings vs other catchers, Robinson Chirinos (8.8 FP), Jonathan Lucroy (7.9 FP), Buster Posey (8.2 FP), Josh Phegley (6.5 FP), and Yasmani Grandal (9.4 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Astudillo but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 40% of leagues he is expected to produce 9.8 fantasy points (WK 12). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #15 catcher of week 12. He is projected to be better than that (the #5 catcher). His per game projected FP average is 2.9 which is better than his actual per game average (2.4).

He is projected for 12.4 fantasy points in week 12 (#5 C) in 4 games.


  • Based on 6/8 start percentages, Willians Astudillo is valued behind Posey and above Molina and the projections agree for this week.
  • Willians Astudillo last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    Astudillo 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.

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    He has averaged 7 fantasy points per week and had 3 weeks where he came up short (below 50% of average) and had 2 weeks where he was +50% above average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    His FanDuel average was 6.9 points and on DraftKings it was 4.5 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 11 and 16.2 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.
