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 someone to keep in the lineup and he is a good value the rest of the week. He has a market rank of #19 while his projection rank for the rest of week 10 is #8. In week 11 rankings vs other outfielders instead of McCutchen consider these better options at lower start percentages: Nick Markakis (16.8 FP), Aaron Hicks (16.9 FP), Charlie Blackmon (20.6 FP), Jake Marisnick (17.8 FP), and Thomas Pham (21.9 FP). Starting in 94% of leagues he is expected to produce 18.4 fantasy points (WK 11). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #14 outfielder of the week, but he is projected to be the #28 outfielder. In terms of total fantasy points he projected to come up 2 short of expectations.

    He averaged 11.9 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.
