Jonathan Schoop's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

After an all-star season in which he garnered MVP votes in 2017, Schoop had an underwhelming 2018 with the lowest AVG since his rookie year. He batted .233 and only had 19 walks all season including a .204 AVG with only 4 home runs after he was traded to the Brewers at the deadline. A change in culture from the Orioles and a fresh start to the season will do him well, expect Schoop to return with a vengeance in 2019 and bump his numbers back up.

DAILY FANTASY VALUE

Schoop is not the best option on FanDuel with a projected 8.7 FD pts (#15 among second basemen). At $3300 he is expected to be the #7 second baseman. At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $2.9K (expected pts per $ is calculated daily based on the average of healthy starters). Hanser Alberto is also priced at $3300, and Schoop is a better option at this price. These are 5 better options at lower salaries: Ian Kinsler (9 FP), Eric Sogard (9.9 FP), Daniel Descalso (8.9 FP), Cesar Hernandez (9.5 FP), and Kolten Wong (8.8 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 10 FPs, a value reached in 51 of 179 games (28%). The combined 'cover percentage' for second basemen expected to start is 45%.

  • 5/24 VEGAS LINE EXPECTATION: MIN 5.1 (#7 Most Today) vs CHW 3.9 (#25 Most)
  • PROJECTION (POS RANK): 8.72 Fantasy Points (#14), 3.32 plate appearances (#25), 0.25 BA (#23), 0.766 OPS (#20), 0.19 HR (#3), 0.54 RBI (#4), 0.52 runs (#6),

DRAFTKINGS VALUE: Projected for 6.5 DraftKings pts Jonathan Schoop is the #18 ranked second baseman. He is the #11 highest priced second baseman ($4300). Using the salaries and projected points for healthy players in in today's pool to calculate expected points per dollar, Schoop is worth $3.8K. Ketel Marte is also priced at $4300 and is a better option at this price. Instead of Schoop consider these better options at lower salaries: Ian Kinsler (6.8 FP), Eric Sogard (7.6 FP), Kolten Wong (6.6 FP), Rougned Odor (9.1 FP), and Chris Taylor (6.8 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 7.4 FPs, a value reached in 55 of 179 games (31%). The combined 'cover percentage' for second basemen expected to start is 38%.

Schoop 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.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

Jonathan Schoop is a good value the rest of the week. He has a market rank of #19 while his projection rank (rest of week 9) is #8. Week 10 second basemen comparisons show instead of Schoop consider these better options at lower start percentages: Howie Kendrick (12 FP), Ian Kinsler (12.1 FP), Asdrubal Cabrera (18.2 FP), Daniel Murphy (16.6 FP), and Daniel Descalso (12 FP). Starting in 60% of leagues he is expected to produce 14.7 fantasy points (WK 10). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #12 second baseman of the week, but he is projected to be the #29 second baseman. In terms of total fantasy points he projected to come up 2.9 short of expectations. His per game projected FP average is 2.4 which is less than his actual per game average (3.1). In addition to a below average projected FP average, he also is expected to play just 4.82 games.

He is projected for 11.8 fantasy points in week 10 (#29 2B) in 5 games.


  • Based on 5/24 start percentages, Jonathan Schoop is valued behind Senzel and above Cabrera but the projections rank these players in reverse order in week 10.
  • Jonathan Schoop last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    Our projections run counter to general expectations. Jonathan Schoop is projected to be a top tier fantasy second baseman. Ranking by ownership percentage (74%), Jonathan Schoop is expected to be the #19 second baseman for the rest of the season. His projection based second baseman rank is #13. Even if he is owned in plenty of leagues, he is still undervalued and if you act quickly there is a clear buy low opportunity. Unless someone offers an even better second baseman value, we advise you to hold on to him. He is projected for 262 fantasy points in 91 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #11 highest average. The market ranks Jonathan Schoop behind Gennett and above Hiura but the projections rank Jonathan Schoop over Gennett.

    His value decreases in leagues where winning specific categories is important because he has more relative weaknesses than strengths.

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    Out of 9 fantasy weeks, he was +50% above his weekly average of 14.6 FPs in 2 of them. He had 2 bad weeks where he was 50% below average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    He averaged 10.6 FD points and 8.5 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 22.2 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.
