Thomas Fantasy Week 16 Projection vs Expectation


Based on start%, Culberson is expected to produce more fantasy points than Lane Thomas and the projections validate that assessment. Lane Thomas should put up more fantasy points than Lagares who is ranked 1 spot below him based on start%. He is starting in no leagues and with a projected outfielder rank of #122 in week 16 it makes sense.

He is projected for 2.3 fantasy points in week 16 (#122 OF) in limited action.

    Thomas is NOT in the SportsLine DraftKings optimal lineup or the FanDuel optimal lineup which are based on the computer model's projection. 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 average FPs, he is even better with the #69 highest average. The market ranks Lane Thomas behind Locastro and above Ervin but the projections rank these players in reverse order.
