2019 FANTASY OUTLOOK AND PROJECTION: SOLID PERFORMER
Ben Zobrist is projected to be a outfielder worth starting most weeks. His projected position rank based on season total fantasy points is #51 (at OF). At the end of the 2018 season he was owned in just 51 percent of leagues. This should go up next season. He is projected to average 2.79 fantasy points per game in 130 games. His projected rank for the upcoming season is down from where he finished last season.
SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND
Ben Zobrist had a good, but not elite, year in fantasy. He was the number #34 ranked OF and the #99 ranked player overall. His solid ranking drops slightly if you base things on average fantasy points where he is the #37 OF. He peaked early in the season. He averaged 3 FPs in his first 44 games and 2.1 FP in his final 45 games. A fast start and slow end is somewhat expected given his age. His standard deviation divided by his average is 1.07 which is close to the league ratio. He averaged 2.6 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 12 fantasy points.

CURRENT CAREER TREND AND STATISTICS
His fantasy point average held steady over the past 2 seasons, which is fairly impressive given his advancing age.
WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP
He has averaged 13.5 fantasy points per week and had 4 weeks where he exceeded that by 50% vs just one bad week.
DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP
His FanDuel average was 8.6 points and on DraftKings it was 6.6 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 13 and 19.2 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.
