2019 FANTASY OUTLOOK AND PROJECTION: LOOKING GOOD
Scooter Gennett is projected to be an elite fantasy second baseman and worth a high draft pick. In our latest projection he is the #4 second baseman based on total projected fantasy points. In 2018, he was owned in 99 percent of leagues and it will be at least this high next season as well. He is projected to average 3.11 fantasy points per game in 141 games. His projected rank for the upcoming season is the same as where he finished last season.
SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND
Scooter Gennett was the #35 ranked fantasy player this season and the #4 2B. His elite ranking was helped by his higher games played (154). Based on average fantasy points he is the #6 2B. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 53 games he averaged 3.2 fantasy points which was higher than his start (3 FP) and his ending average (2.5 FP). Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Gennett can be considered a consistent fantasy player. He averaged 2.9 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 16 fantasy points.

CURRENT CAREER TREND AND STATISTICS
His fantasy point average held steady over the past 2 seasons.
WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP
He has averaged 16.6 fantasy points per week and had 6 weeks where he exceeded that by 50% and 5 'bad' weeks where he came up 50% short of his average.
DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP
He averaged 10.5 FD points and 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. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 16 and 22.2 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.
