SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

J.D. Martinez was the #2 ranked fantasy player this season and the most valuable 1B. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 51 games he averaged 4.2 fantasy points which was higher than his start (3.9 FP) and his ending average (3.9 FP). Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Martinez can be considered a consistent fantasy player. He averaged 4 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 17 fantasy points.

CURRENT CAREER TREND AND STATISTICS

The table below shows his relatively steady fantasy production over the past 2 seasons.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 22 fantasy points per week and had 4 weeks where he came up short (below 50% of average) and had 3 weeks where he was +50% above average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 14.5 points and on DraftKings it was 10.8 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. 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 20 and 29.2 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.
