2019 FANTASY OUTLOOK AND PROJECTION: LOOKING GOOD
J.D. Martinez is projected to be the best fantasy first baseman in the upcoming season. In 2018, he was owned in 100 percent of leagues and it will be at least this high next season as well. He is projected to average 3.79 fantasy points per game in 146 games. His projected rank for the upcoming season is the same as where he finished last season.
SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND
J.D. Martinez was the number one fantasy 1B and the #2 ranked player overall. 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). His fantasy production is stable and he is not as volatile as most players based on a below average standard deviation. He averaged 4 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 17 fantasy points.

CURRENT CAREER TREND AND STATISTICS
His fantasy point average held steady 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.
