SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND
Joe Mauer was not a fantasy star but was worth starting most weeks. He was the #140 ranked fantasy player this season and the #26 1B. Even though he missed plenty of games he played enough so that his overall fantasy rank was better than what it was based on average fantasy points (#40 1B). Mauer did not show a clear upward or downward trend as the season progressed. He averaged 2.5 FPs in his first 41 games, 2.3 in the middle of his season and 2.4 in his final 2.4 games. Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Mauer can be considered a consistent fantasy player. He averaged 2.4 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 13 fantasy points.

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 14 and on FanDuel it was 18.9 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.
