Kevin Love'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.

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

He is the #287 ranked fantasy player this season and the #53 power forward. Not playing many games certainly is the main reason for the disappointing season. Based on average fantasy points he is the #9 power forward. We split his 22 games into 3 segments (start, middle, and end). He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 7 games he averaged 37.1 fantasy points which was higher than his start (29.3 FP) and his ending average (26.8 FP). Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Love can be considered a consistent fantasy player. He averaged 30.9 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 56 fantasy points with a floor of 7 points.

SportsLine has the best NBA picks and Daily Fantasy Lineups. In the off-season check out our coverage of all major leagues (NFL, MLB, NHL, Horses, NASCAR, and Golf).

CURRENT CAREER TREND AND STATISTICS

His per game fantasy average is down 7 percent from two seasons ago. His usage rate is trending up but his minutes per game are down.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 62 fantasy points per week and had 5 weeks where he exceeded that by 20% and 4 'bad' weeks where he came up 20% short of his average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 30.9 points and on DraftKings it was 36.2 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 18.5 and on FanDuel it was 15 fantasy points. His DraftKings ceiling was 54 fantasy points and 47 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.
