Miles Mikolas is Projected to Be an Elite Fantasy Player in 2019 (#17 SP)

As you may have noticed we have transformed Scout into a data and stats driven service geared towards helping invested fans make the right decisions on a daily basis. This is our new Fantasy Scouting Report that we produce for each fantasy relevant player. We treat them like a stock and report their value in season long fantasy, the current fantasy week, and if applicable, on FanDuel and on DraftKings. We establish what is expected of the player based on fantasy ownership %, start %, and DFS Salary and see if our proprietary forecasting model projects a better or worse than expected performance. For complete recaps of the best and worst values for each market (season, weekly, daily), injury reports and team outlooks be sure to check out the new Scout.


Miles Mikolas is projected to be a must start starting pitcher next season. His projected position rank based on season total fantasy points is #17 (at SP). In 2018, he was owned in 95 percent of leagues and it will be at least this high next season as well. He is projected to average 3.69 fantasy points per game in 30 games. His projected rank for the upcoming season is down from where he finished last season.

Miles Mikolas was the #439 ranked fantasy player this season. His elite ranking was helped by his higher games played (34). Based on average fantasy points he is the #27 SP. We split his 34 games into 3 segments (start, middle, and end). He peaked early in the season. He averaged 6 FPs in his first 11 games and 5.1 FP in his final 12 games. His fantasy production is stable and he is not as volatile as most players based on a below average standard deviation. He averaged 4.5 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 18 fantasy points.
