LeBron James'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.

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Of the 19 forwards that are 100% owned, LeBron James is projected to be the best fantasy player for the rest of the season. Our projections show his value is rising. He is projected for 1164 fantasy points in 24 remaining games. His projected average FP rank is the same as his rest of season total rank. The market ranks LeBron James behind Aldridge and above Harris but the projections rank LeBron James over Aldridge. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly lower in 2 categories than his overall fantasy point ranking and these are relative weaknesses. Scoring is not necessarily a strength (especially from three-point range) but it is not a weakness and he is considered a well-rounded forward who contributes equally in most key stats.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

If you are in a league that allows for substitutions during the week LeBron James is a bad value the rest of the week. He has a market rank of #9 while his projection (rest of week 19) rank is #16. When compared to other forwards in week 20, LaMarcus Aldridge (99.2 FP), Kevin Durant (159.6 FP), Blake Griffin (155.8 FP), Paul George (156.7 FP), and Kawhi Leonard (113.8 FP) are all projected for fewer points than James but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 90% of leagues he is expected to produce 113.8 fantasy points (WK 20). It should be a very good week 20 as he is projected to be the #2 forward. His per game projected FP average is 48 which is better than his actual per game average (33.9). In addition to a solid projected FP average, he will benefit from playing 4 games.

He is projected for 191 fantasy points in week 20 (#2 F) in 4 games.


  • Based on 2/22 start percentages, LeBron James is valued behind Simmons and above Gordon but the projections rank LeBron James over Simmons in week 20.
  • LeBron James last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    James is not in the 2/22 DFS player pool, but one player who is in the Sportsline FanDuel optimal lineup is DeAndre' Bembry, and Taurean Waller-Prince is in the DraftKings optimal lineup.
