Ian Desmond's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Ian Desmond was not in the lineup last night because he is dealing with a lower half injury. However, it is not expected to be serious and he is expected to be back in the lineup tonight.

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Ranking by ownership percentage (54%), Ian Desmond is expected to be the #26 1B/DH for the rest of the season. Ian Desmond's market rank is slightly better than our current projections indicate. His fantasy 1B/DH projection rank is #28. He is projected for more FPs than Christian Walker who has virtually the same market rank (54% Owned) as Desmond. He is projected for 156 fantasy points in 60 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#46) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Ian Desmond behind Walker and above Smoak but the projections rank these players in reverse order.

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

His value comes in the form of stolen bases which can make him more valuable in certain leagues (rotisserie, higher points per SB).

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

His market rank based on start percentage among 1B/DHs for the rest of week 17 is #29, which is less than his market rank of #26. Week 18 1B/DHs comparisons show instead of Desmond consider these better options at lower start percentages: Justin Bour (16.4 FP), C.J. Cron (16.2 FP), Ryan McMahon (16.8 FP), Dominic Smith (15.7 FP), and Jake Bauers (18 FP). Joey Votto (15.2 FP), Christian Walker (10.3 FP), Max Muncy (14.2 FP), Hunter Dozier (14.3 FP), and Yulieski Gurriel (13.5 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Desmond but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 34% of leagues he is expected to produce 15.5 fantasy points (WK 18). Week 18 market expectations match his projection. He is expected to be the #23 1B/DH (projected to be #23).

He is projected for 15.5 fantasy points in week 18 (#23 1B/DH) in 6 games.


  • Based on 7/18 start percentages, Ian Desmond is valued behind Walker and above Carpenter but the projections rank Ian Desmond over Walker in week 18.
  • Ian Desmond last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    LAST DAILY FANTASY PERFORMANCE 7/16 VS SF

    • 1-4, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 R
    • FanDuel: $3700, 22.2 FPs (+$2971 value, +9.9 FPs)
    • DraftKings: $4400, 16 FPs (+$4062 value, +7.7 FPs)

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    He has averaged 12.4 fantasy points per week and had 6 weeks where he came up short (below 50% of average) and had 2 weeks where he was +50% above average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    He averaged 9.6 FD points and 7.8 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 18 and on FanDuel it was 24.7 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.
