DJ LeMahieu's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY VALUE

Projected for 8.5 FanDuel pts DJ LeMahieu is the #13 ranked second baseman. He is the #6 highest priced second baseman ($3400). Using the salaries and projected points for healthy players in in today's pool to calculate expected points per dollar, LeMahieu is worth $3.1K. Jonathan Schoop is also priced at $3400 and is a better option at this price. These are 5 better options at lower salaries: Jonathan Villar (10.4 FP), Robinson Cano (8.9 FP), Mike Moustakas (10.7 FP), Cesar Hernandez (9.4 FP), and Brian Dozier (9.6 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 9.2 FPs, a value reached in 69 of 152 games (45%). The combined 'cover percentage' for second basemen expected to start is 44%.

  • 4/22 VEGAS LINE EXPECTATION: NYY 4.3 (#10 Most Today) vs LAA 4.2 (#12 Most)
  • PROJECTION (POS RANK): 8.47 Fantasy Points (#12), 3.8 plate appearances (#10), 0.284 BA (#4), 0.748 OPS (#16), 0.07 HR (#17), 0.4 RBI (#9), 0.53 runs (#4), 0.02 stolen bases (#19),

DRAFTKINGS VALUE: DJ LeMahieu is underrated on DraftKings with a projected 6.5 DK pts (#15 among second basemen). He is the #18 highest priced second baseman ($3800). Using the salaries and projected points for healthy players in in today's pool to calculate expected points per dollar, LeMahieu is worth $3.7K. There are 2 other options at $3800 (Mike Moustakas, Rougned Odor) and LeMahieu is ranked #2 among the 3. Instead of LeMahieu consider these better options at lower salaries: Robinson Cano (6.8 FP), Jurickson Profar (7.6 FP), and Joe Wendle (7.5 FP). Howie Kendrick (4.9 FP), Danny Santana (4.2 FP), Ketel Marte (6.3 FP), Jose Rondon (4.7 FP), and Adam Frazier (5.6 FP) are all projected for fewer points than LeMahieu but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 6.6 FPs, a value reached in 78 of 152 games (51%). The combined 'cover percentage' for second basemen expected to start is 37%.

LeMahieu 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

DJ LeMahieu is a good value this week. He has a market rank of #14 while his projection rank (week 5) is #4. Week 5 second basemen comparisons show, Jonathan Villar (16 FP), Robinson Cano (14 FP), Dee Gordon (14 FP), Javier Baez (16 FP), and Kolten Wong (14 FP) are all projected for fewer points than LeMahieu but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 65% of leagues he is expected to produce 14.4 fantasy points (WK 5). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #14 second baseman of week 5. He is projected to be better than that (the #4 second baseman). Even though his per game projected FP average is not better than normal, he will benefit from playing a projected 6 games.

He is projected for 17.5 fantasy points in week 5 (#4 2B) in 6 games.


  • Based on 4/22 start percentages, DJ LeMahieu is valued behind Wong and above Hernandez but the projections rank Hernandez over DJ LeMahieu in week 5.
  • DJ LeMahieu last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    Based on ownership percentage (80%), DJ LeMahieu has a market rank of #14 among second basemen. Based on the latest projections the market is overrating LeMahieu. His projection based second baseman rank is #20. Cesar Hernandez has virtually the same market rank (80% Owned) and is projected for more points than LeMahieu. He is projected for 304 fantasy points in 110 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #15 highest average. The market ranks DJ LeMahieu behind Wong and above Hernandez but the projections rank Hernandez over DJ LeMahieu.

    He has more relative weaknesses than strengths which hurts his value in leagues that score based on production in individual categories.

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    He has been consistent. Out of his 4 weeks all have been within 50% of his 14 weekly FP average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    He averaged 9.5 FD points and 9 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. He had a relatively high ceiling. On DraftKings it was 15 and on FanDuel it was 19.2 FPs. 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.
