Elfrid Payton's Fantasy Scouting Report

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

He is the number #41 ranked point guard and the #166 ranked player overall. He would have been more fantasy relevant if he played more games. Based on average fantasy points he is the #16 point guard. He steadily increased his fantasy average as the season went on. He averaged 24.4 FPs in his first 13 games, 27.5 fantasy points in his next 13 and 37.5 FP after that. He is still relatively young, so he should be able to continue showing improvement next season. Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Payton can be considered a consistent fantasy player. He averaged 29.9 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 58 fantasy points.

CURRENT CAREER TREND AND STATISTICS

The table below shows his relatively steady fantasy production over the past 3 seasons, but given his age you would hope to see more improvement. His usage rate is trending down but his minutes per game are up.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 84 fantasy points per week and had 4 weeks where he exceeded that by 20% and 3 'bad' weeks where he came up 20% short of his average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 30.1 points and on DraftKings it was 33 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 12.8 and on FanDuel it was 13.5 fantasy points. He had a relatively high ceiling. On Draftkings it was 54 and on FanDuel it was 45.5 FPs. 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.
