2019 FANTASY OUTLOOK AND PROJECTION: BENCH PLAYER
Kevin Gausman is projected to be a starting pitcher worth having on the bench and potentially starting in certain situations. His projected position rank based on season total fantasy points is #80 (at SP). He finished the 2018 season owned in 83 percent of leagues so plenty has been expected out of him in the past. He is projected to average 1.19 fantasy points per game in 31 games.
SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND
Kevin Gausman 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 #112 ranked SP. His value would have been higher if he had played more games. Based on average fantasy points he was the #107 SP. We split his 32 games into 3 segments (start, middle, and end). He was trending up for the season. In his first 10 games he averaged 0.9 FPs. He improved to 2.5 in his final 11 games. Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Gausman can be considered a consistent fantasy player. Our projected ceiling for Gausman when he 'goes off' is 15 fantasy points (his average is -0.2FPs).

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP
He has averaged -0.2 fantasy points per week and had 14 weeks where he exceeded that by 50% and 12 'bad' weeks where he came up 50% short of his average.
DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP
He averaged 29.2 FD points and 14.9 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. On DraftKings his floor was -3.1 and on FanDuel it was 5 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 25 and 44 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.
