Corey Kluber's Fantasy Scouting Report

As you may have noticed we have transformed Scout into a data and stats driven service geared towards helping invested fans make the right decisions on a daily basis. This is our new Fantasy Scouting Report that we produce for each fantasy relevant player. We treat them like a stock and report their value in season long fantasy, the current fantasy week, and if applicable, on FanDuel and on DraftKings. We establish what is expected of the player based on fantasy ownership %, start %, and DFS Salary and see if our proprietary forecasting model projects a better or worse than expected performance. For complete recaps of the best and worst values for each market (season, weekly, daily), injury reports and team outlooks be sure to check out the new Scout.

2019 FANTASY OUTLOOK AND PROJECTION: LOOKING GOOD

Corey Kluber is projected to be an elite fantasy starting pitcher and worth a high draft pick. His projected position rank based on season total fantasy points is #6 (at SP). In 2018, he was owned in 97 percent of leagues and it will be at least this high next season as well. He is projected to average 5.31 fantasy points per game in 32 games. His projected rank for the upcoming season is down slightly from where he finished last season.

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Corey Kluber was the #230 ranked fantasy player this season. His elite ranking was helped by his higher games played (33). Based on average fantasy points he is the #6 SP. We split his 33 games into 3 segments (start, middle, and end). His production dropped throughout the season. In his first 10 games he averaged 9.6 FPs and that declined to 6.8 in his final 11 games. A fast start and slow end is somewhat expected given his age. His fantasy production is stable and he is not as volatile as most players based on a below average standard deviation. Our projected ceiling for Kluber when he 'goes off' is 22 fantasy points (his average is 6.7FPs).

STATISTICAL DROPOFF FROM PREVIOUS SEASON

Getting older predictably resulted in a drop in production. His fantasy average dropped by 29 percent.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 8.5 fantasy points per week and had 12 weeks where he exceeded that by 50% and 8 'bad' weeks where he came up 50% short of his average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 39 points and on DraftKings it was 20.8 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 -8.4 and on FanDuel it was -7 fantasy points. His DraftKings ceiling was 33.3 fantasy points and 57 on FanDuel. He has had more bad FanDuel games (below average by 20%) than good games (20% above average), but on DraftKings he has had more good than bad games. We are only including games where they were in the daily fantasy slate and played.
