Justin Verlander's Fantasy Scouting Report

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 DraftKings than on FanDuel. He is projected for 43.1 FD points and is worth +$1426 more than $10.7K on FD. On DK he is projected for 24.4 points and is worth +$1448 more than $11.4K. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Based on our latest projection, you can expect Justin Verlander to be an elite fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 97.93 projected fantasy points puts him at #2 behind Max Scherzer and ahead of Gerrit Cole. He has averaged 7.4 fantasy points in his past 54 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 7.53 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 98%, he is the #3 most highly owned starting pitcher. Justin Verlander is expected to come up slightly short of this season-to-date's #1 fantasy position rank.

WEEK 17 AND 18 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Justin Verlander is projected for 6.45 fantasy points in one game the rest of week which is good enough to be the #5 ranked starting pitcher and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a below average game with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above Blake Snell but behind Walker Buehler the rest of the week. Week 18 will not be as good based on projected rank (#10). He is projected for 5.7 fantasy points.
