It Was a Solid Fantasy Season for Joe Mauer

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Joe Mauer had a decent season as a solid fantasy starter. He was the #140 ranked fantasy player this season and the #26 1B. Even though he missed plenty of games he played enough so that his overall fantasy rank was better than what it was based on average fantasy points (#39 1B). Mauer did not show a clear upward or downward trend as the season progressed. He averaged 2.5 FPs in his first 41 games, 2.3 in the middle of his season and 2.4 in his final 2.4 games. Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Mauer can be considered a consistent fantasy player. Our projected ceiling for Mauer when he 'goes off' is 13 fantasy points (his average is 2.4FPs).

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 8.6 points and on DraftKings it was 6.6 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. He had a relatively high ceiling. On DraftKings it was 14 and on FanDuel it was 18.9 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.
