Nick Markakis's Fantasy Scouting Report

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

Nick Markakis is a good value this week. He has a market rank of #36 while his projection rank (week 14) is #12. In week 14 rankings vs other outfielders Alex Verdugo (20 FP) is projected for more points and is starting in fewer leagues. Justin Upton (16 FP), Michael Brantley (18 FP), Lorenzo Cain (15 FP), Aaron Hicks (14 FP), and Starling Marte (17 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Markakis but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 71% of leagues he is expected to produce 15.7 fantasy points (WK 14). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #36 outfielder of week 14. He is projected to be better than that (the #12 outfielder). Even though his per game projected FP average is not better than normal, he will benefit from playing a projected 7 games.

He is projected for 18.9 fantasy points in week 14 (#12 OF) in 7 games.


  • Based on 6/24 start percentages, Nick Markakis is valued behind Puig and above Mazara but the projections rank Nick Markakis over Puig in week 14.
  • Nick Markakis last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    DAILY FANTASY VALUE

    FANDUEL VALUE (6/24): Projected for 9 FanDuel pts Nick Markakis is the #30 ranked outfielder. At $3200 he is expected to be the #24 outfielder. At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $3K. Aaron Hicks is also priced at $3200 and is a better option at this price. These are 5 better options at lower salaries: Carlos Gomez (9.4 FP), Carlos Gonzalez (9.9 FP), Brett Gardner (10.5 FP), Kyle Schwarber (11.4 FP), and Tyler Naquin (9.1 FP). He is projected for more points than 4 higher priced options: Jay Bruce (8.8 FP), Jorge Soler (8.4 FP), David Peralta (7.3 FP), and Austin Riley (8.3 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 9.4 FPs, a value reached in 99 of 244 games (41%). The combined 'cover percentage' for outfielders expected to start is 42%.

    DRAFTKINGS VALUE: Nick Markakis is underrated on DraftKings with a projected 6.8 DK pts (#25 among outfielders). At $3800 he is expected to be the #31 outfielder. Using the salaries and projected points for healthy players in in today's pool to calculate expected points per dollar, Markakis is worth $3.9K. There are 6 other options at $3800 (A.J. Pollock, Kevin Pillar, Chris Taylor, Mike Yastrzemski, Teoscar Hernandez, Tim Locastro) and Markakis is ranked #2 among the 7. These are 4 better options at lower salaries: Carlos Gomez (7.1 FP), Carlos Gonzalez (7.3 FP), Randal Grichuk (7.6 FP), and Tyler Naquin (6.9 FP). Adam Jones (6 FP), Jarrod Dyson (1.7 FP), Leury Garcia (4.4 FP), Jorge Soler (6.3 FP), and David Peralta (5.6 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Markakis but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 6.6 FPs, a value reached in 115 of 244 games (47%). The combined 'cover percentage' for outfielders expected to start is 41%.

    Markakis 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.

    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    Most already consider Nick Markakis to be a good starting outfielder, but the projections indicate he is an elite fantasy option. As of 6/24, Nick Markakis is the #36 ranked outfielder based on ownership percentage (84%). The projections have him 9 spots higher in the rankings. Even as an established quality fantasy option, if he lives up to projections he is still undervalued and there could be an opportunity to buy 'low'. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better outfielder option available. He is projected for 219 fantasy points in 78 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#65) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Nick Markakis behind Puig and above Mazara but the projections rank Nick Markakis over Puig.

    His value decreases in leagues where winning specific categories is important because he has more relative weaknesses than strengths.

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    He has averaged 17.2 fantasy points per week and had 3 weeks where he exceeded that by 50% and 2 'bad' weeks where he came up 50% short of his average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    He averaged 9.7 FD points and 7.5 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. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 16 and 22.2 on FanDuel. 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.
