DAILY FANTASY VALUE

Luke Kennard is overrated on FanDuel with a projected 16.4 FD pts (#16 among shooting guards). He is the #12 highest priced shooting guard ($4300). At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $3.8K. There are 4 other options at $4300 (Andre Iguodala, Wayne Ellington, Monte Morris, Josh Okogie) and Kennard is ranked #3 among the 5. These are 2 better options at lower salaries: Kent Bazemore (26.2 FP) and Kevin Huerter (22.3 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 15.1 FPs, a value reached in 25 of 70 games (36%). The combined 'cover percentage' for shooting guards priced at $4.0K and above is 50%.

Kennard 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.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

If you are in a league that allows for substitutions during the week, Luke Kennard could be someone to consider. He is projected to be the #41 guard the rest of week 23 and he is only starting in 12% of leagues. instead of Kennard consider these better options at lower start percentages: Patty Mills (55.1 FP), Cory Joseph (44.5 FP), E`Twaun Moore (49 FP), Dion Waiters (59.4 FP), and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (45.4 FP). He is projected for more points than 2 other guards starting in more leagues: Emmanuel Mudiay (30.3 FP) and Damyean Dotson (34.9 FP). Starting in 12% of leagues he is expected to produce 55.1 fantasy points (WK 24). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #68 guard of the week, but he is projected to be the #80 guard. In terms of total fantasy points he projected to come up 11.5 short of expectations.

He is projected for 43 fantasy points in week 24 (#80 G) in 3 games.

    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    Ranking by ownership percentage (27%), Luke Kennard is expected to be the #72 guard for the rest of the season. Luke Kennard's projection rank is better than their market rank. His fantasy guard projection rank is #68. There could be a nice opportunity to acquire him before the market realizes he is undervalued. Unless someone offers an even better guard value, we advise you to hold on to him. Malik Beasley has virtually the same market rank (27% Owned) and is projected for more points than Kennard. He is projected for 178 fantasy points in 12 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#78) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Luke Kennard behind Morris and above Beasley but the projections rank Beasley over Luke Kennard. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly better in 4 categories (strengths) than his overall fantasy point ranking. With a better FP Total rank than Avg rank, his value will decrease once his remaining games evens out with other similarly rated players. His strength is scoring, especially from three-point range. But he is not expected to pass very often.
