Javier Baez's Fantasy Scouting Report

2019 FANTASY OUTLOOK AND PROJECTION: LOOKING GOOD

The only player we project to be better than Javier Baez (at 2B) is Jose Altuve. In 2018, he was owned in 100 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 143 games. His projected rank for the upcoming season is down slightly from where he finished last season.

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Javier Baez was the #15 ranked fantasy player this season and the most valuable 2B. His production dropped throughout the season. In his first 51 games he averaged 3.5 FPs and that declined to 2.8 in his final 52 games. Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Baez can be considered a consistent fantasy player. He averaged 3.2 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 18 fantasy points.

STATISTICAL IMPROVEMENT OVER LAST SEASON

As a young player he improved as you would like. His fantasy average improved by 28%.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 18.8 fantasy points per week and had 6 weeks where he came up short (below 50% of average) and had 5 weeks where he was +50% above average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 13.6 points and on DraftKings it was 10.6 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 22 and 30.9 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.
