Knox 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

Kevin Knox is a bench player and spot starter this past fantasy season. He is the #141 ranked fantasy player this season and the #27 power forward. His ranking drops to the #35 ranked power forward when basing it on average fantasy points. He was trending up for the season. In his first 24 games he averaged 16.1 FPs. He improved to 20.5 in his final 25 games. Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Knox can be considered a consistent fantasy player. He averaged 19 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 42 fantasy points.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 58 fantasy points per week and had 8 weeks where he came up short (below 80% of average) and had 7 weeks where he was +20% above average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 20.3 points and on DraftKings it was 22.3 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 1 and on FanDuel it was 0.5 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 34.2 and 31.5 on FanDuel. He has had more good FanDuel games (exceed average by 20%) than bad games (20% below average), and the same was true on DraftKings. We are only including games where they were in the daily fantasy slate and played.
