Jorge Polanco's Fantasy Scouting Report

2019 FANTASY OUTLOOK AND PROJECTION: SOLID PERFORMER

While not considered an 'elite' fantasy option, Jorge Polanco is projected to be a regular fantasy starter next season. In our latest projection he is the #16 shortstop based on total projected fantasy points. At the end of the 2018 season he was owned in just 30 percent of leagues. This should go up next season. He is projected to average 2.59 fantasy points per game in 143 games.

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Jorge Polanco was a bench player and spot starter this past fantasy season. He was the #237 ranked fantasy player this season and the #28 SS. He would have been in that next tier of SSs if he had played more games. Based on average fantasy points he was the #9 SS. We split his 77 games into 3 segments (start, middle, and end). He steadily increased his fantasy average as the season went on. He averaged 2.4 FPs in his first 25 games, 2.6 fantasy points in his next 25 and 3.3 FP after that. He is still relatively young, so he should be able to continue showing improvement next season. His fantasy production is stable and he is not as volatile as most players based on a below average standard deviation. Our projected ceiling for Polanco when he 'goes off' is 11 fantasy points (his average is 2.8FPs).

CURRENT CAREER TREND AND STATISTICS

His fantasy point average held steady over the past 2 seasons. You would hope for more season-to-season improvement from a younger player.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

Out of 13 fantasy weeks, he was 50% below his weekly average of 16.4 FPs in 2 of them.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

He averaged 10.2 FD points and 7.9 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. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 17 and 22.4 on FanDuel. 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.
