Does Haase's Latest DraftKings Projection Justify His $3.3K Salary?

DAILY FANTASY VALUE

There are 2 other options at $3300 (Kevan Smith, Francisco Mejia) and Haase is the best option of these 3. Instead of Haase consider these better options at lower salaries: Jeff Mathis (3.8 FP), Francisco Cervelli (1.8 FP), Nick Hundley (3.6 FP), Matt Wieters (2.4 FP), and Welington Castillo (6 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 4.6 FPs, a value reached in 1 of 11 games (9%). The combined 'cover percentage' for catchers expected to start is 42%.

Haase 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.

    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    Ranking by ownership percentage (under 1%) and season fantasy rankings, Eric Haase is expected to be the #70 catcher for the rest of the season. With a lower market rank than projection rank, consider Eric Haase to be undervalued. His fantasy catcher projection rank is #62. While there is value and likely a clear opportunity to acquire him via trade or waiver wire pick up it is probably not worth the roster spot at this time. Even though he is undervalued, he is not projected for more fantasy points than other catchers with a better market ranking. He is projected for 72 fantasy points in 28 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #18 highest average. The market values Nido over Eric Haase but the projections do not.

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