Instead of Austin consider these better options at lower salaries: Miguel Cabrera (7.1 FP), Mark Reynolds (4.4 FP), Chris Davis (4.6 FP), Lucas Duda (5.1 FP), and Yonder Alonso (4.4 FP). He is projected for more points than 2 higher priced options: Charlie Culberson (2.9 FP) and Matt Beaty (3.2 FP).

Austin 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 VALUE

Week 15 1B/DHs comparisons show these are 2 better options at lower start percentages: Lucas Duda (11.9 FP) and Jose Osuna (10.5 FP). He is projected for more points than 3 other 1B/DHs starting in more leagues: Christian Walker (7.2 FP), John Hicks (5.1 FP), and Matt Beaty (5.9 FP). Given he is starting in 0% of leagues there is no market expectation for any real fantasy production in week 15.

He is projected for 7.3 fantasy points in week 15 (#53 1B/DH) in 3 games.


  • Based on 6/26 start percentages, Tyler Austin is valued behind Reynolds and above Duda but the projections rank Duda over Tyler Austin in week 15.
  • Tyler Austin last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

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

    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    Both the market and projections have the exact same expectations for Tyler Austin. Based on ownership percentage (1%), Tyler Austin has a market rank of #57 among 1B/DHs. Projections also rank him #57. He is projected for 102 fantasy points in 42 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #55 highest average. The market ranks Tyler Austin behind Pearce and above Reynolds but the projections rank Reynolds over Tyler Austin.

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

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    He has averaged 5 fantasy points per week and had 5 weeks where he came up short (below 50% of average) and had 2 weeks where he was +50% above average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    He averaged 5.8 FD points and 4.9 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. He had a relatively high ceiling. On DraftKings it was 11 and on FanDuel it was 15.4 FPs. 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.
