Jake Cave's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Ranking by ownership percentage (1%), Jake Cave is expected to be the #135 outfielder for the rest of the season. His projection based outfielder rank is #111. While there is value and likely a clear opportunity to acquire him via trade or waiver wire pick up it is probably not worth the roster spot at this time. He is projected for 121 fantasy points in 54 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#135) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Jake Cave behind Williamson and above Culberson but the projections rank Jake Cave over Williamson.

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

Depending on your league's scoring system his value could be quite different because he has clear strengths and weaknesses.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

When compared to other outfielders in week 14 he is projected for more points than 2 other outfielders starting in more leagues: Melky Cabrera (4.3 FP) and Anthony Santander (4.1 FP). He is starting in no leagues and with a projected outfielder rank of #110 in week 14 it makes sense.

He is projected for 8.4 fantasy points in week 14 (#110 OF) in 4 games.


  • Based on 6/19 start percentages, Jake Cave is valued behind Gore and above Bonifacio but the projections rank these players in reverse order in week 14.
  • Jake Cave last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    DAILY FANTASY VALUE

    DRAFTKINGS VALUE (6/19): Cave is not the best option on DraftKings with a projected 1.6 DK pts (#78 among outfielders). He is the #70 highest priced outfielder ($3200). Using the salaries and projected points for healthy players in in today's pool to calculate expected points per dollar, Cave is worth $0.8K. There are 2 other options at $3200 (Mike Yastrzemski, Bradley Zimmer) and Cave is ranked #2 among the 3. These are 5 better options at lower salaries: Curtis Granderson (5 FP), Carlos Gonzalez (5.3 FP), Juan Lagares (5.4 FP), Michael Taylor (9.1 FP), and Roman Quinn (7 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 6.2 FPs, a value reached in 38 of 110 games (35%). The combined 'cover percentage' for outfielders expected to start is 37%.

    FANDUEL VALUE: Projected for 2.1 FanDuel pts Jake Cave is the #132 ranked outfielder. At $2000 he is expected to be the #140 outfielder. Based on the projection, Cave is worth $0.7K. There are many other options (19) at $2000 and Cave is ranked #8 among the 20. Based on salary, he is expected to have 2.4 FPs, a value reached in 78 of 110 games (71%). The combined 'cover percentage' for outfielders expected to start is 41%.

    Cave 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 2.8 fantasy points per week and had 3 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 4.7 points and on DraftKings it was 3.9 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 9 and on FanDuel it was 12 FPs. He has had an equal number of good (20% above average) and bad games (20% below) on FanDuel, but on DraftKings he has had more good than bad games. We are only including games where they were in the daily fantasy slate and played.
