Mitch Garver's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON VALUE

The projections have him 20 spots lower in the rankings. Owners should not be surprised if they find themselves benching Garver more than they thought. Owners may want to look into finding a better value at the catcher position and sell while the market value is this high. He is projected for 113 fantasy points in 33 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #1 highest average. The market ranks Mitch Garver behind Posey and above McCann and the projections agree.

In addition to a below average projected FP average, he also is expected to play just 2.5 games.

He is projected for 8.3 fantasy points in week 15 (#29 C) in 2 games.

    DRAFTKINGS VALUE (6/25): Projected for 6 DraftKings pts Mitch Garver is the #7 ranked catcher. At $5000 he is expected to be the #2 catcher. At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $4.6K (expected pts per $ is calculated daily based on the average of healthy starters). These are 5 better options at lower salaries: Wilson Ramos (6.9 FP), Buster Posey (7.6 FP), Jacob Realmuto (6.7 FP), Austin Barnes (6.5 FP), and Willson Contreras (7.5 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 6.5 FPs, a value reached in 48 of 141 games (34%). The combined 'cover percentage' for catchers expected to start is 45%.

    FANDUEL VALUE: Garver is not the best option on FanDuel with a projected 8 FD pts (#38 among pitchers). At $3100 he is expected to be the #22 C/1Bs.

These are 5 better options at lower salaries: Albert Pujols (8.3 FP), Miguel Cabrera (8.1 FP), Joey Votto (9.8 FP), Mark Reynolds (9.2 FP), and Wilson Ramos (9.1 FP). He is projected for more points than 3 higher priced options: Yasmani Grandal (7.1 FP), James McCann (5 FP), and Garrett Cooper (7.4 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 8.8 FPs, a value reached in 48 of 141 games (34%). The combined 'cover percentage' for pitchers expected to start is 44%.

    Garver 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 11.2 fantasy points per week and had 4 weeks where he came up short (below 50% of average) and had 2 weeks where he was +50% above average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    He averaged 13.1 FD points and 10.1 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 had a relatively high ceiling. On DraftKings it was 19 and on FanDuel it was 31.7 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.
