Nicholas Castellanos's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND PLAY OR FADE ADVICE

He is projected for 12.3 FanDuel points and 9.4 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is worth +$660 more than $3.4K on FanDuel and +$1104 more than $4.3K on DraftKings. Their may be other options (see below) who are even better values, but barring a significant lineup change consider him a strong daily fantasy play. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Nick Castellanos to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 79.77 projected fantasy points puts him at #10 behind Yordan Alvarez and ahead of Marcell Ozuna. He has averaged 2.99 fantasy points in his past 286 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 3.42 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#11) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 99%, he is the #12 most highly owned outfielder. Nick Castellanos is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #17 fantasy position rank.

PROJECTING A DOWN WEEK 24 FOR NICK CASTELLANOS WITH FEWER FPS THAN COREY DICKERSON

Nick Castellanos is projected for 19.16 fantasy points in 6 games in week 24 which ranks him as the #20 projected outfielder for the week and a starter for most fantasy teams. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points per game than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above Michael Brantley but behind Corey Dickerson. Week 25 will be better based on projected rank (#6). He is projected for 21.58 fantasy points.
