Jason Castro's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Many would be surprised to see Jason Castro projected as an elite fantasy catcher. Based on ownership percentage (20%), Jason Castro has a market rank of #24 among catchers. The projections have him 9 spots higher in the rankings. 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 catcher option available. He is projected for more FPs than Tucker Barnhart who has virtually the same market rank (20% Owned) as Castro. He is projected for 144 fantasy points in 47 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #3 highest average. The market ranks Jason Castro behind Cervelli and above Barnhart but the projections rank Jason Castro over Cervelli.

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

He does not score as many fantasy points and has fewer RBI than you might expect given his OPS projection.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

In week 13 rankings vs other catchers Chance Sisco (11.3 FP) is projected for more points and is starting in fewer leagues. Josh Phegley (5.2 FP), Christian Vazquez (9.1 FP), James McCann (5.9 FP), Elias Diaz (7.1 FP), and Austin Barnes (10.3 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Castro but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 14% of leagues he is expected to produce 9.6 fantasy points (WK 13). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #22 catcher of week 13. He is projected to be better than that (the #17 catcher).

He is projected for 10.4 fantasy points in week 13 (#17 C) in 4 games.


  • Based on 6/15 start percentages, Jason Castro is valued behind Jansen and above Zunino but the projections rank Jason Castro over Jansen in week 13.
  • Jason Castro last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    DAILY FANTASY VALUE

    DRAFTKINGS VALUE (6/15): Projected for 4.3 DraftKings pts Jason Castro is the #10 ranked catcher. He is the #5 highest priced catcher ($4200). Based on the projection, Castro is worth $3.4K. These are 5 better options at lower salaries: Yadier Molina (6.3 FP), Welington Castillo (6 FP), Jacob Realmuto (8 FP), Austin Hedges (4.4 FP), and Willson Contreras (6.3 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 5.3 FPs, a value reached in 20 of 52 games (38%). The combined 'cover percentage' for catchers expected to start is 46%.

    FANDUEL VALUE: Projected for 5.8 FanDuel pts Jason Castro is the #57 ranked C/1Bs. He is the #33 highest priced C/1Bs ($2900). Using the salaries and projected points for healthy players in in today's pool to calculate expected points per dollar, Castro is worth $2.2K. There are 2 other options at $2900 (Albert Pujols, Brian McCann) and Castro is ranked #2 among the 3. Instead of Castro consider these better options at lower salaries: Miguel Cabrera (7.9 FP), Yadier Molina (8.1 FP), Kurt Suzuki (6.5 FP), Mark Reynolds (7.6 FP), and Welington Castillo (7.8 FP). He is projected for more points than 2 higher priced options: Austin Hedges (5.7 FP) and Mitch Garver (3.3 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 5.6 FPs, a value reached in 26 of 52 games (50%). The combined 'cover percentage' for third basemen expected to start is 45%.

    Castro 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 RECAP

    He has averaged 8.3 fantasy points per week and had 4 weeks where he came up short (below 50% of average) and had 3 weeks where he was +50% above average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    His FanDuel average was 10.5 points and on DraftKings it was 8.2 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 19 and on FanDuel it was 27.9 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.
