Austin Meadows's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Most already consider Austin Meadows to be a good starting outfielder, but the projections indicate he is an elite fantasy option. Ranking by ownership percentage (98%), Austin Meadows is expected to be the #20 outfielder for the rest of the season. He is projected to be the #11 outfielder. Even if he is owned in plenty of leagues, he is still undervalued and if you act quickly there is a clear buy low opportunity. Unless someone offers an even better outfielder value, we advise you to hold on to him. Of the 4 outfielders (Max Kepler, Michael Conforto, Trey Mancini) with this market rank (98% Owned), he is the top rated one. He is projected for 250 fantasy points in 76 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#13) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Austin Meadows behind Kepler and above Mancini but the projections rank Austin Meadows over Kepler.

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

He has more relative weaknesses than strengths which hurts his value in leagues that score based on production in individual categories.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

Austin Meadows is someone to keep in the lineup and he is a good value the rest of the week. He has a market rank of #20 while his projection rank for the rest of week 14 is #8. In week 15 rankings vs other outfielders, Michael Brantley (14.9 FP), Starling Marte (20.8 FP), Bryce Harper (17.8 FP), Charlie Blackmon (18.4 FP), and Thomas Pham (21 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Meadows but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 80% of leagues he is expected to produce 17.4 fantasy points (WK 15). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #20 outfielder of week 15. He is projected to be better than that (the #4 outfielder). Even though his per game projected FP average is not better than normal, he will benefit from playing a projected 6 games.

He is projected for 21.6 fantasy points in week 15 (#4 OF) in 6 games.


  • Based on 6/25 start percentages, Austin Meadows is valued behind Peralta and above Judge but the projections rank these players in reverse order in week 15.
  • Austin Meadows last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    DAILY FANTASY VALUE

    FANDUEL VALUE (6/25): There are 4 other options at $3800 (Michael Brantley, Domingo Santana, Eddie Rosario, Austin Riley) and Meadows is the best option of these 5. Justin Upton (11.1 FP), Bryce Harper (12.9 FP), Christian Yelich (12.9 FP), J.D. Martinez (11.5 FP), and Charlie Blackmon (12.8 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Meadows but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 11.3 FPs, a value reached in 41 of 119 games (34%). The combined 'cover percentage' for outfielders expected to start is 43%.

    DRAFTKINGS VALUE: There are 2 other options at $4800 (Hunter Pence, Mallex Smith) and Meadows is the best option of these 3. Instead of Meadows consider these better options at lower salaries: Giancarlo Stanton (10.5 FP) and Aaron Judge (10.5 FP). Shin-Soo Choo (9.7 FP), Christian Yelich (9.7 FP), J.D. Martinez (8.6 FP), Charlie Blackmon (9.8 FP), and George Springer (8 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Meadows but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 8.4 FPs, a value reached in 40 of 119 games (34%). The combined 'cover percentage' for outfielders expected to start is 39%.

    Meadows 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

    Out of 11 fantasy weeks, he was +50% above his weekly average of 18.4 FPs in 2 of them. He had 2 bad weeks where he was 50% below average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    He averaged 12.4 FD points and 9.4 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. He did not have a high ceiling (less than +50% over average). On DraftKings it was 14 and on FanDuel it was 28.7 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. We are only including games where they were in the daily fantasy slate and played.
