Jose Martinez's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON VALUE

As of 5/24, Jose Martinez is the #23 ranked 1B/DH based on ownership percentage (73%). The market expects more than the projections do. His projection based 1B/DH rank is #35. Most owners expect to start Martinez every active week, but we think they might have to bench him in certain situations. Matt Olson has virtually the same market rank (73% Owned) and is projected for more points than Martinez. He is projected for 247 fantasy points in 91 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#36) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Jose Martinez behind Olson and above Aguilar but the projections rank Aguilar over Jose Martinez.

Make sure to visit Sportsline to for DFS and betting advice. We have picks on every game and line.

He does not score as many fantasy points and has fewer RBI than you might expect given his OPS projection.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

Jose Martinez is a bad value the rest of the week. He has a market rank of #23 while his projection (rest of week 9) rank is #31. When compared to other 1B/DHs in week 10 these are 5 better options at lower start percentages: Albert Pujols (16 FP), Nelson Cruz (16 FP), Kendrys Morales (14.8 FP), Ian Desmond (15.9 FP), and Lucas Duda (15.3 FP). He is projected for more points than 2 other 1B/DHs starting in more leagues: C.J. Cron (11.5 FP) and Yulieski Gurriel (13.2 FP). Starting in 48% of leagues he is expected to produce 16 fantasy points (WK 10). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #23 1B/DH of the week, but he is projected to be the #37 1B/DH. In terms of total fantasy points he projected to come up 2.7 short of expectations. Even though his per game projected FP average is not better than normal, he will benefit from playing a projected 5 games.

He is projected for 13.3 fantasy points in week 10 (#37 1B/DH) in 5 games.

Based on 5/24 salaries and projected points per dollar, Martinez is worth $3.8K. There are many other options (10) at $3700 and Martinez is ranked #2 among the 11. These are 5 better options at lower salaries: Carlos Gomez (7.6 FP), Randal Grichuk (7.4 FP), Nick Castellanos (6.6 FP), Odubel Herrera (6.8 FP), and Charlie Tilson (7.5 FP). Adam Jones (6.3 FP), Dexter Fowler (6 FP), Jarrod Dyson (1.7 FP), Avisail Garcia (6.1 FP), and Jake Marisnick (5.6 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Martinez but have higher salaries.

    FANDUEL VALUE: Projected for 8.6 FanDuel pts Jose Martinez is the #65 ranked outfielder. At $2900 he is expected to be the #71 outfielder. Based on 5/24 salaries and projected points per dollar, Martinez is worth $3K. There are 6 other options at $2900 (Jay Bruce, Jason Heyward, Josh Reddick, Jarrod Dyson, Randal Grichuk, Albert Almora) and Martinez is ranked #2 among the 7. Instead of Martinez consider these better options at lower salaries: Rajai Davis (10 FP), Carlos Gomez (10.1 FP), Cameron Maybin (9.9 FP), Robbie Grossman (8.9 FP), and Wil Myers (10.9 FP). Adam Jones (8.1 FP), Dexter Fowler (8.2 FP), Avisail Garcia (7.8 FP), Nick Castellanos (8.4 FP), and Domingo Santana (7.9 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Martinez but have higher salaries.

    Martinez 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 RECAP

    He has averaged 11.3 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

    He averaged 7.6 FD points and 6.2 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 24.7 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.
