Zack Greinke's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Zack Greinke was removed late from yesterday’s game with a tight abdominal. Since his rough opening day start, he has gone 6-0 with a 1.92 ERA. Greinke hasn’t been ruled out of making his next start and it is not known who would take his spot in the rotation if he were to go on the IL.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

When compared to other starting pitchers in week 10, Justin Verlander (7.5 FP), Carlos Carrasco (5.3 FP), Stephen Strasburg (4.5 FP), Chris Sale (4.3 FP), and Trevor Bauer (5.2 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Greinke but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 85% of leagues he is expected to produce 5.4 fantasy points (WK 10). It should be a very good week 10 as he is projected to be the #3 starting pitcher. Even though his per game projected FP average is not better than normal, he will benefit from playing a projected 2 games.

He is projected for 9.9 fantasy points in week 10 (#3 SP) in 4 games.


  • Based on 5/24 start percentages, Zack Greinke is valued behind Ryu and above Buehler but the projections rank Buehler over Zack Greinke in week 10.
  • Make sure to visit Sportsline to for DFS and betting advice. We have picks on every game and line.

    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    His latest projection based rank among starting pitchers is #8. Ranking by ownership percentage (98%), Zack Greinke is expected to be the #14 starting pitcher for the rest of the season. Our projections indicate that Zack Greinke is underrated by the market. Even if he is owned in plenty of leagues, he is still undervalued and if you act quickly there is a clear buy low opportunity. Unless someone offers an even better starting pitcher value, we advise you to hold on to him. Of the 16 98% owned starting pitchers, he is ranked #7. He is projected for 112 fantasy points in 21 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#11) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Zack Greinke behind Berrios and above Buehler but the projections rank these players in reverse order.

    He is projected for more wins as than you would expect based on his save percentage rank.

    LAST DAILY FANTASY PERFORMANCE 5/21 VS SD

    • Loss 7 IP, 5 K, 3.86 ERA, 0.71 WHIP
    • FanDuel: $11000, 31 FPs (-$852 value, -2.6 FPs)
    • DraftKings: $10200, 16.8 FPs (-$408 value, -0.7 FPs)

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    He has averaged 9.1 fantasy points per week and had 4 weeks where he exceeded that by 50% and 2 'bad' weeks where he came up 50% short of his average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    His FanDuel average was 38.5 points and on DraftKings it was 22.2 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. On DraftKings his floor was -5.1 and on FanDuel it was 25 fantasy points. His DraftKings ceiling was 29.7 fantasy points and 51 on FanDuel. On FanDuel, he has been consistent with relatively few good or bad games (+/- 20% of average), and the same is true on DraftKings. We are only including games where they were in the daily fantasy slate and played.
