Mitch Garver's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Mitch Garver was added to the IL today with a high ankle sprain suffered in last night’s game. He was on a torrid pace to start the season, so his shoes will be tough to fill. The good news is the Twins have two very capable catchers behind him in Jason Castro and Willians Astudillo. This is the best possible scenario for the Twins, although they won’t be happy their All-Star caliber catcher is headed to the IL. If you had Garver in fantasy, Castro or Astudillo would be a good play for catcher.

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Ranking by ownership percentage (68%), Mitch Garver is expected to be the #11 catcher for the rest of the season. Based on the latest projections the market is overrating Garver. He is only projected to be the #28 catcher. He is a clearcut starter with a per game average FP rank of #1 so owners will need to determine if they can wait until he is back (expected 5/30/2019). He is projected for 148 fantasy points in 40 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #1 highest average. The market ranks Mitch Garver behind Lucroy and above Astudillo but the projections rank Astudillo over Mitch Garver.

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

**These projections are based on him returning 5/30.

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

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

Week 10 catchers comparisons show instead of Garver consider these better options at lower start percentages: Jeff Mathis (8.8 FP), Russell Martin (6.9 FP), Chris Iannetta (10.5 FP), Nick Hundley (7.1 FP), and Matt Wieters (5.4 FP). Starting in 10% of leagues he is expected to produce 8.9 fantasy points (WK 10). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #25 catcher of the week, but he is projected to be the #58 catcher. In terms of total fantasy points he projected to come up 4.4 short of expectations. His per game projected FP average is 3.1 which is less than his actual per game average (5). His value in week 10 is lower because he is expected to be out through 5/29.

He is projected for 4.5 fantasy points in week 10 (#58 C) in limited action.


  • Based on 5/24 start percentages, Mitch Garver is valued behind McCann and above Hedges but the projections rank these players in reverse order in week 10.
  • LAST DAILY FANTASY PERFORMANCE 5/14 VS LAA

    • 1-4, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 R
    • FanDuel: $3300, 22.2 FPs (+$3679 value, +11.7 FPs)
    • DraftKings: $4600, 16 FPs (+$4049 value, +7.5 FPs)

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    Out of 8 fantasy weeks, he was +50% above his weekly average of 12.5 FPs in 2 of them. He had 2 bad weeks where he was 50% below average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    His FanDuel average was 14.3 points and on DraftKings it was 11.3 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 24 and 34.4 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.
