SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Michael Brantley was the number #11 ranked OF and the #32 ranked player overall. His elite ranking drops slightly if you base things on average fantasy points where he is the #12 OF. His production dropped throughout the season. In his first 47 games he averaged 3.8 FPs and that declined to 3.1 in his final 48 games. His fantasy production is stable and he is not as volatile as most players based on a below average standard deviation. He averaged 3.2 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 11 fantasy points.

STATISTICAL IMPROVEMENT OVER LAST SEASON

Getting older did not stop Brantley from increasing production. His fantasy average improved by 10%.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 17.5 fantasy points per week and had 3 weeks where he exceeded that by 50% and 2 'bad' weeks where he came up 50% short of his average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

He averaged 11 FD points and 8.2 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 13 and on FanDuel it was 22.6 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.
