McCutchen is the #10 Most Expensive OF on FanDuel and is Projected to Be...


There are 2 other options at $3600 (Adam Jones, Kole Calhoun) and McCutchen is the best option of these 3. Jake Marisnick (12.3 FP) is projected for more points at a lower salary. Bryce Harper (11.4 FP), Joc Pederson (7.3 FP), David Peralta (9.7 FP), Mitch Haniger (11.4 FP), and Cody Bellinger (11.6 FP) are all projected for fewer points than McCutchen but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 9.9 FPs, a value reached in 87 of 218 games (40%). The combined 'cover percentage' for outfielders expected to start is 43%.

DRAFTKINGS VALUE: Based on a projected 8.9 DraftKings points, McCutchen is fairly ranked. He is the #4 highest priced outfielder ($5400). At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $5.7K (expected pts per $ is calculated daily based on the average of healthy starters). These are 2 better options at lower salaries: Michael Brantley (10.4 FP) and Jake Marisnick (9.1 FP). He is projected for more points than 2 higher priced options: Joc Pederson (5.5 FP) and Shohei Ohtani (5.1 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 8.4 FPs, a value reached in 83 of 218 games (38%). The combined 'cover percentage' for outfielders expected to start is 38%.

McCutchen 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.


Andrew McCutchen is a bad value this week. He has a market rank of #16 while his projection (week 11) rank is #31. In week 11 rankings vs other outfielders instead of McCutchen consider these better options at lower start percentages: Nick Markakis (17 FP), Aaron Hicks (17 FP), Avisail Garcia (16 FP), Starling Marte (16 FP), and Jake Marisnick (19 FP). Starting in 95% of leagues he is expected to produce 18.3 fantasy points (WK 11). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #16 outfielder of the week, but he is projected to be the #31 outfielder. In terms of total fantasy points he projected to come up 2.1 short of expectations. His per game projected FP average is 2.9 which is less than his actual per game average (3.3).

He is projected for 16.2 fantasy points in week 11 (#31 OF) in 6 games.

    He averaged 11.8 FD points and 8.7 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. He had a relatively high ceiling. On DraftKings it was 19 and on FanDuel it was 27.9 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.
