Ben Zobrist's Fantasy Scouting Report

2019 FANTASY OUTLOOK AND PROJECTION: BENCH PLAYER

While not considered a full-time starter, Ben Zobrist is projected to be worth a spot on fantasy benches next season. His projected position rank based on season total fantasy points is #85 (at OF). In 2018, he was owned in 51 percent of leagues so he has had fantasy relevance in the past. He is projected to average 2.78 fantasy points per game in 113 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 #43 ranked OF and the #121 ranked player overall. Even though he missed his fair share of games, had played enough to make his overall fantasy rank better than what it is based on average fantasy points where he is the #78 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

The table below shows his relatively steady fantasy production over the past 2 seasons, which is a good sign 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

He averaged 8.6 FD points and 6.6 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 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.
