Father Time Is Catching Up with Paul Millsap


Paul Millsap has had an OK fantasy season if you were expecting to have him on the bench and only start in certain weeks. He is the #92 ranked fantasy player this season and the #15 power forward. His ranking drops to the #21 ranked power forward when basing it on average fantasy points. Millsap did not show a clear upward or downward trend as the season progressed. He averaged 25.3 FPs in his first 23 games, 22.2 in the middle of his season and 25.5 in his final 25.5 games. His fantasy production is stable and he is not as volatile as most players based on a below average standard deviation. Our projected ceiling for Millsap when he 'goes off' is 48 fantasy points (his average is 24.3FPs) with a floor of 6 points.

On DraftKings his floor was 14.8 and on FanDuel it was 12.5 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 43.8 and 45 on FanDuel. He has had more bad FanDuel games (below average by 20%) than good games (20% above average), and an equal number of good and bad games on DraftKings.
