Brandon Crawford's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY VALUE

Projected for 8.1 DraftKings pts Brandon Crawford is the #10 ranked shortstop. At $3900 he is expected to be the #18 shortstop. Using our calculation of expected points per dollar, Crawford is worth $4.3K. There are 3 other options at $3900 (Didi Gregorius, Andrelton Simmons, Paul DeJong) and Crawford is ranked #2 among the 4. Elvis Andrus (7.9 FP), Freddy Galvis (5 FP), Jean Segura (6.6 FP), Marcus Semien (6.9 FP), and Jorge Polanco (6.4 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Crawford but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 7.3 FPs, a value reached in 68 of 235 games (29%). The combined 'cover percentage' for shortstops expected to start is 40%.

  • 7/16 VEGAS LINE EXPECTATION: SF 7.1 (#4 Most Today) vs COL 7.4 (#3 Most)
  • PROJECTION (POS RANK): 8.13 Fantasy Points (#9), 3.97 plate appearances (#15), 0.297 BA (#10), 0.867 OPS (#6), 0.15 HR (#8), 0.61 RBI (#7), 0.58 runs (#11), 0.02 stolen bases (#27),

FANDUEL VALUE: There are 4 other options at $3200 (Freddy Galvis, Andrelton Simmons, J.P. Crawford, Kevin Newman) and Crawford is the best option of these 5. Corey Seager (11.9 FP) is projected for more points at a lower salary. Elvis Andrus (10.3 FP), Jean Segura (8.6 FP), Marcus Semien (9.2 FP), Jorge Polanco (8.4 FP), and Dansby Swanson (9.5 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Crawford but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 9.5 FPs, a value reached in 62 of 235 games (26%). The combined 'cover percentage' for shortstops expected to start is 41%.

Crawford 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

When compared to other shortstops in week 18 instead of Crawford consider these better options at lower start percentages: Aledmys Diaz (12.1 FP), Jose Rondon (11.7 FP), and Nicky Lopez (12.1 FP). He is projected for more points than 3 other shortstops starting in more leagues: Freddy Galvis (7.2 FP), Carlos Correa (2.4 FP), and Orlando Arcia (10.8 FP). Starting in 4% of leagues he is expected to produce 10.8 fantasy points (WK 18). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #35 shortstop of week 18. He is projected to be better than that (the #33 shortstop).

He is projected for 11.6 fantasy points in week 18 (#33 SS) in 5 games.


  • Based on 7/16 start percentages, Brandon Crawford is valued behind Iglesias and above Rojas and the projections agree for this week.
  • Brandon Crawford last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    His latest projection based rank among shortstops is #31. Ranking by ownership percentage (8%), Brandon Crawford is expected to be the #39 shortstop for the rest of the season. With a lower market rank than projection rank, consider Brandon Crawford to be undervalued. There could be a nice opportunity to acquire him before the market realizes he is undervalued. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better shortstop option available. He is projected for 135 fantasy points in 58 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#43) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Brandon Crawford behind Lopez and above Tulowitzki and the projections agree.

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

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    He has averaged 10.9 fantasy points per week and had 6 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 8.4 points and on DraftKings it was 7 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 19.2 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.
