Chris Paul'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.

DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK

Draft Chris Paul as a weekly fantasy starter in 2019-2020. His 2974 projected fantasy points puts him at #11 behind Mike Conley and ahead of Kemba Walker. He has averaged 36.2 fantasy points in his past 58 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 39.7 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#6) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 99%, he is the #14 most highly owned guard. Chris Paul is expected to improve on last season's #25 fantasy position rank.

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.

WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

This weekly projection is not based on the official schedule and are meant for illustrative purposes. As soon as the 2019-2020 schedule is released we will update appropriately. Chris Paul is projected for 108.3 fantasy points in 3 games which is good enough to be the #6 ranked guard and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points per game than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above Kyrie Irving but behind Kyle Lowry. Week 2 will not be as good based on projected rank (#38). He is projected for 75 fantasy points.

FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND ACTUAL STATS

The tables below show projected stats (totals and averages) for the rest of the season and upcoming weeks. Below the projection are actual stats from last season.
