DAILY FANTASY VALUE

Projected for 21.7 DraftKings pts Dwight Powell is the #19 ranked center. He is the #13 highest priced center ($5700). Using our calculation of expected points per dollar, Powell is worth $4.7K. Instead of Powell consider these better options at lower salaries: DeAndre Jordan (34.2 FP), Robin Lopez (22.3 FP), Ed Davis (22.6 FP), Hassan Whiteside (30.2 FP), and Willie Cauley-Stein (26.3 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 26.5 FPs, a value reached in 25 of 81 games (31%). The combined 'cover percentage' for centers priced at $4.0K and above is 44%.

  • 4/10 MATCHUP: DAL @ SA, DAL Vegas Line Expectation 102.5 Points (#21 most points for the day)
  • PROJECTION (POS RANK): 21.7 Fantasy Points (#19), 10.7 pts (#15), 5.4 reb (#22), 1.4 ast (#13), 0.5 stl (#16), 0.5 blk (#26), 0.5 3pt (#7), 0.8 turnovers (#19 most)

FANDUEL VALUE: Dwight Powell is overrated on FanDuel with a projected 20.6 FD pts (#20 among power forwards). At $6200 he is expected to be the #16 power forward. Based on the projection, Powell is worth $4.9K. These are 5 better options at lower salaries: Ersan Ilyasova (22.8 FP), Thaddeus Young (33.4 FP), Taj Gibson (21.6 FP), Al-Farouq Aminu (21.4 FP), and Jerami Grant (22.7 FP). He is projected for more points than 3 higher priced options: Frank Kaminsky (19.1 FP), Ivan Rabb (15.3 FP), and Luke Kornet (16.3 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 26.1 FPs, a value reached in 21 of 81 games (26%). The combined 'cover percentage' for power forwards priced at $4.0K and above is 39%.

Powell is NOT in the SportsLine DraftKings optimal lineup or the FanDuel optimal lineup which are based on the computer model's projection. SportsLine.com also offers premium optimal lineups from Mike McClure, a professional DFS player who has over $1 million in career winnings. He uses his own proprietary model to find great DFS values and often differs from the computer in how a player is projected to play on a daily basis.

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Dwight Powell is a bench player and spot starter this past fantasy season. He is the #129 ranked fantasy player this season and the #25 power forward. His ranking drops to the #33 ranked power forward when basing it on average fantasy points. He showed an upward trajectory as the season went on. He averaged 15.4 FPs in his first 25 games and 26.7 FP in his final 26 games. 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 Powell when he 'goes off' is 44 fantasy points (his average is 19.2FPs).

UPWARD STATISTICAL CAREER TREND

He has demonstrated the solid year-to-year improvement that you look for in a younger player. His three season trend show an increase of 48% in fantasy points per game.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 58 fantasy points per week and had 10 weeks where he came up short (below 80% of average) and had 7 weeks where he was +20% above average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

He averaged 21.1 FD points and 21.9 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. On DraftKings his floor was 5.8 and on FanDuel it was 5 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 33 and 32.5 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.
