Hernandez is NOT in the SportsLine DraftKings optimal lineup or the FanDuel optimal lineup which are based on the computer model's projection. SportsLine.com also offers premium optimal lineups from Mike McClure, a professional DFS player who has over $1 million in career winnings. He uses his own proprietary model to find great DFS values and often differs from the computer in how a player is projected to play on a daily basis.
WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE
Week 9 catchers comparisons show, Russell Martin (5.1 FP), Erik Kratz (3.3 FP), Matt Wieters (4.6 FP), Martin Maldonado (6.3 FP), and Stephen Vogt (5.9 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Hernandez but are starting in more leagues. Given he is starting in 0% of leagues there is no market expectation for any real fantasy production in week 9. His per game projected FP average is 2.5 which is better than his actual per game average (0).
He is projected for 6.5 fantasy points in week 9 (#42 C) in 3 games.
REST OF SEASON VALUE
Ranking by ownership percentage (under 1%) and season fantasy rankings, Oscar Hernandez is expected to be the #59 catcher for the rest of the season. He is projected to be the #47 catcher. There could be a nice opportunity to acquire him before the market realizes he is undervalued. Unless someone offers an even better catcher value, we advise you to hold on to him. He is projected for 115 fantasy points in 42 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #13 highest average. The market ranks Oscar Hernandez behind Allen and above Herrmann but the projections rank these players in reverse order.
His projected fantasy points is lower than you would like given his relatively strong OPS projection.
