Oscar Hernandez's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY VALUE

Oscar Hernandez is underrated on DraftKings with a projected 3.8 DK pts (#29 among catchers). At $2500 he is expected to be the #59 catcher. Based on the projection, Hernandez is worth $3K. Tucker Barnhart is also priced at $2500, and Hernandez is a better option at this price. These are 2 better options at lower salaries: Martin Maldonado (4.4 FP) and Danny Jansen (4.8 FP). Russell Martin (3 FP), Brian McCann (3.7 FP), Kurt Suzuki (3.4 FP), Erik Kratz (1.7 FP), and Matt Wieters (3.2 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Hernandez but have higher salaries.

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.


  • Based on 5/18 start %s the market values Stallings over Oscar Hernandez but the projections do not agree for week 9.

    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.
