Are 68% of Booker Owners Correctly Starting Him in Week 14?

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.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

If you are in a league that allows for substitutions during the week Devin Booker is a bad value the rest of the week. He has a market rank of #18 while his projection (rest of week 13) rank is #41. When compared to other guards in week 14, Louis Williams (107.1 FP), Kyle Lowry (105.3 FP), Mike Conley (133 FP), Stephen Curry (119.4 FP), and Jeff Teague (82.4 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Booker but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 67% of leagues he is expected to produce 80.6 fantasy points (WK 14). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #29 guard of week 14. He is projected to be better than that (the #5 guard). His per game projected FP average is 36.4 which is better than his actual per game average (28.7). In addition to a solid projected FP average, he will benefit from playing 4 games.

He is projected for 146 fantasy points in week 14 (#5 G) in 4 games.

    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    There are 21 guards owned in 100% of leagues and Devin Booker is projected to be the #9 among them. His market rank among all guards is #18 but that rank is clearly impacted by the significant time he missed. Based on these projections, he is set to trend up. He is projected for 1445 fantasy points in 39 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #7 highest average. The market ranks Devin Booker behind McCollum and above Lowry but the projections rank Devin Booker over McCollum. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly lower in 5 categories than his overall fantasy point ranking and these are relative weaknesses. Scoring is his strength but he has areas he could improve on to become a more well-rounded fantasy guard.
