2019 FANTASY OUTLOOK AND PROJECTION: BENCH PLAYER
Tyler Flowers is projected to be a catcher worth having on the bench and potentially starting in certain situations. In our latest projection he is the #25 catcher based on total projected fantasy points. At the end of the 2018 season he was owned in just 8 percent of leagues. This should go up next season. He is projected to average 2.26 fantasy points per game in 97 games. His projected rank for the upcoming season is up slightly from where he finished last season.
SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND
Tyler Flowers had an OK fantasy season if you were expecting to have him on the bench and only start in certain weeks. He was the number #27 ranked catcher and the #312 ranked player overall. His value would have been higher if he had played more games. Based on average fantasy points he was the #21 catcher. We split his 78 games into 3 segments (start, middle, and end). He peaked early in the season. He averaged 2.6 FPs in his first 25 games and 1.7 FP in his final 26 games. A fast start and slow end is somewhat expected given his age. His standard deviation divided by his average is 1.37 which is close to the league ratio. He averaged 2 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 12 fantasy points.

STATISTICAL DROPOFF FROM PREVIOUS SEASON
Getting older predictably resulted in a drop in production. His average fantasy points decreased by 17% this season.
WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP
Out of 23 fantasy weeks, he was +50% above his weekly average of 6.9 FPs in 7 of them. He had 7 bad weeks where he was 50% below average.
DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP
His FanDuel average was 6.6 points and on DraftKings it was 5.2 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 11 and on FanDuel it was 15.4 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.
