WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

In week 15 rankings vs other catchers instead of Wolters consider these better options at lower start percentages: Jeff Mathis (7.8 FP), Chris Iannetta (8.9 FP), Welington Castillo (10.9 FP), Tyler Flowers (9.6 FP), and Martin Maldonado (8.9 FP). Starting in 13% of leagues he is expected to produce 8.9 fantasy points (WK 15). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #25 catcher of the week, but he is projected to be the #40 catcher. In terms of total fantasy points he projected to come up 2.3 short of expectations. Even though his per game projected FP average is not better than normal, he will benefit from playing a projected 3 games.

    Wolters is NOT in the SportsLine DraftKings optimal lineup or the FanDuel optimal lineup which are based on the computer model's projection. SportsLine.com 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.
