While not considered a full-time starter, Dansby Swanson is projected to be worth a spot on fantasy benches next season. His projected position rank based on season total fantasy points is #29 (at SS). In 2018, he was owned in 34 percent of leagues so he has had fantasy relevance in the past.

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Dansby Swanson had an OK fantasy season if you were expecting to have him on the bench and only start in certain weeks. He was the #162 ranked fantasy player this season and the #21 SS. His ranking drops to the #26 ranked SS when basing it on average fantasy points. His fantasy production did not rise or fall significantly as the season went on. If you break up his season into 3 equal segments (start, middle, end) his average started at 2.2 FPs, ended at 2.1 FPs, and was 2.1 FPs in between. His standard deviation divided by his average is 1.36 which is close to the league ratio. Our projected ceiling for Swanson when he 'goes off' is 13 fantasy points (his average is 2.2FPs).

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

He averaged 8.7 FD points and 6.7 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. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 14 and 18.7 on FanDuel. 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.
