SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

C.J. Cron was not a fantasy star but was worth starting most weeks. He was the number #23 ranked 1B and the #87 ranked player overall. His ranking drops slightly if you base things on average fantasy points where he is the #26 1B. His production dropped throughout the season. In his first 46 games he averaged 2.9 FPs and that declined to 2.5 in his final 47 games. Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Cron can be considered a consistent fantasy player. He averaged 2.7 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 14 fantasy points.

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 14 and on FanDuel it was 21.7 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.
