It is a Solid Fantasy Season for Danilo Gallinari

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.


Danilo Gallinari is not a fantasy star but is worth starting most weeks. He is the number #10 ranked small forward and the #53 ranked player overall. His value would have been slightly higher if he played more games. Based on average fantasy points he is the #9 small forward. He was trending up for the season. In his first 22 games he averaged 29.7 FPs. He improved to 33 in his final 23 games. Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Gallinari can be considered a consistent fantasy player. Our projected ceiling for Gallinari when he 'goes off' is 51 fantasy points (his average is 30.7FPs) with a floor of 5 points.
