Nick Markakis's Fantasy Scouting Report

2019 FANTASY OUTLOOK AND PROJECTION: LOOKING GOOD

Nick Markakis is projected to be an elite fantasy outfielder and worth a high draft pick. In our latest projection he is the #27 outfielder based on total projected fantasy points. In 2018, he was owned in 96 percent of leagues and it will be at least this high next season as well. He is projected to average 2.71 fantasy points per game in 146 games. His projected rank for the upcoming season is down from where he finished last season.

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Nick Markakis was the #23 ranked fantasy player this season and the #9 OF. His elite ranking was helped by his higher games played (162). Based on average fantasy points he is the #20 OF. His production dropped throughout the season. In his first 53 games he averaged 3.6 FPs and that declined to 2.2 in his final 54 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. He averaged 3 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 14 fantasy points.

STATISTICAL IMPROVEMENT OVER LAST SEASON

Markakis may be getting older but he did get better this season. His average Fantasy points increased by 20% this season.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

Out of 27 fantasy weeks, he was +50% above his weekly average of 17.7 FPs in 3 of them. He had 3 bad weeks where he was 50% below average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

He averaged 10.3 FD points and 7.6 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 16 and on FanDuel it was 22 FPs. He has had more bad FanDuel games (below average by 20%) than good games (20% above average), and the same was true on DraftKings. We are only including games where they were in the daily fantasy slate and played.
