|Pete Alonso's Fantasy Scouting Report|
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.
DAILY FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND PLAY OR FADE ADVICE
For each platform we calculate a position specific points per dollar and our projection says he is a better value on FanDuel than on DraftKings. He is projected for 12.3 FD points and is worth +$531 more than $4.1K on FD. On DK he is projected for 9.2 points and is worth +$393 more than $5K. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK
Based on our latest projection, you can expect Pete Alonso to be an elite fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 82.71 projected fantasy points puts him at #3 behind J.D. Martinez and ahead of Carlos Santana. He has averaged 3.62 fantasy points in his past 134 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 3.42 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#8) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite first baseman. He is projected to live up to these high expectations. Pete Alonso is expected to slightly improve on this season-to-date's #6 fantasy position rank.
PROJECTING A DOWN WEEK 24 FOR PETE ALONSO WITH FEWER FPS THAN ERIC HOSMER
Pete Alonso is projected for 19.22 fantasy points in 6 games which is good enough to be the #11 ranked first baseman and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points per game than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above Jose Abreu but behind Eric Hosmer. Week 25 is projected to be slightly better based on projected rank (#10). He is projected for 19.41 fantasy points.
