Using the salaries and projected points for healthy players in in today's pool to calculate expected points per dollar, Hezonja is worth $3.9K. These are 5 better options at lower salaries: D.J. Augustin (23.1 FP), George Hill (19.5 FP), Darren Collison (34.5 FP), Patty Mills (19.8 FP), and Ricky Rubio (28.7 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 30.7 FPs, a value reached in 9 of 81 games (11%). The combined 'cover percentage' for point guards priced at $4.0K and above is 34%.

Hezonja 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

He is the #235 ranked fantasy player this season and the #53 small forward. His value would have been higher if he had played more games. Based on average fantasy points he is the #46 small forward. He was trending up for the season. In his first 18 games he averaged 13.6 FPs. He improved to 21.5 in his final 19 games. Given his youth, he should be able to continue showing improvement next season. Using standard deviation as an indicator of consistency, Hezonja is relatively inconsistent capable of very high highs and equally low lows. Our projected ceiling for Hezonja when he 'goes off' is 51 fantasy points (his average is 15.7FPs).
