Daily Fantasy Projection: Jeff Hoffman


Hoffman is not the best option on DraftKings with a projected 11.7 DK pts (#23 among pitchers). At $6100 he is expected to be the #20 pitcher. Using the salaries and projected points for healthy players in in today's pool to calculate expected points per dollar, Hoffman is worth $6K. These are 2 better options at lower salaries: Marco Gonzales (13.2 FP) and Cal Quantrill (13.3 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 11.9 FPs, a value reached in 2 of 12 games (17%). The combined 'cover percentage' for pitchers expected to start is 41%.

Hoffman 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.


Based on start%, Hernandez is expected to produce more fantasy points than Jeff Hoffman and the projections validate that assessment. Jeff Hoffman should put up more fantasy points than Richard who is ranked 1 spot below him based on start%. He is starting in just 1% of leagues and with a projected starting pitcher rank of #109 in week 13 it makes sense that he is not starting in many leagues.

He is projected for -3.3 fantasy points in week 13 (#150 SP) in 2 games.
