|Christian Yelich'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.
2019 FANTASY OUTLOOK AND PROJECTION: LOOKING GOOD
Christian Yelich is projected to be an elite fantasy outfielder and worth a high draft pick. His projected position rank based on season total fantasy points is #3 (at OF). In 2018, he was owned in 100 percent of leagues and it will be at least this high next season as well. He is projected to average 3.48 fantasy points per game in 154 games. His projected rank for the upcoming season is down slightly from where he finished last season.

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND
Christian Yelich was the #6 ranked fantasy player this season and the #2 OF. He steadily increased his fantasy average as the season went on. He averaged 3.3 FPs in his first 47 games, 3.7 fantasy points in his next 47 and 5 FP after that. 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 Yelich when he 'goes off' is 17 fantasy points (his average is 4FPs).
STATISTICAL IMPROVEMENT OVER LAST SEASON
He was sble to improve his fantasy production significantly this season. His fantasy average improved by 33%.
WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP
He has averaged 22 fantasy points per week and had 7 weeks where he came up short (below 50% of average) and had 4 weeks where he was +50% above average.
DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP
His FanDuel average was 15.1 points and on DraftKings it was 11.5 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 23 and 31.4 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.
