2019 FANTASY OUTLOOK AND PROJECTION: SOLID PERFORMER
C.J. Cron is projected to be a first baseman worth starting most weeks. In our latest projection he is the #30 first baseman based on total projected fantasy points. At the end of the 2018 season he was owned in just 52 percent of leagues. This should go up next season. He is projected to average 2.86 fantasy points per game in 124 games. His projected rank for the upcoming season is down from where he finished last season.
SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND
C.J. Cron was not a fantasy star but was worth starting most weeks. He was the number #23 ranked 1B and the #87 ranked player overall. His ranking drops slightly if you base things on average fantasy points where he is the #27 1B. His production dropped throughout the season. In his first 46 games he averaged 2.9 FPs and that declined to 2.5 in his final 47 games. His fantasy production is stable and he is not as volatile as most players based on a below average standard deviation. Our projected ceiling for Cron when he 'goes off' is 14 fantasy points (his average is 2.7FPs).

STATISTICAL IMPROVEMENT OVER LAST SEASON
Based on his fantasy point average, he is on a clear upward swing. His average Fantasy points increased by 17% this season.
WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP
He has averaged 13.8 fantasy points per week and had 10 weeks where he came up short (below 50% of average) and had 5 weeks where he was +50% above average.
DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP
He averaged 10 FD points and 7.3 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. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 14 and 21.7 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.
