Damian Lillard Is the #2 Fantasy Point Guard

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.


Damian Lillard is the #5 ranked fantasy player this season and the #2 point guard. His fantasy production did not rise or fall significantly as the season went on. If you break up his season into 3 equal segments (start, middle, end) his average started at 43.9 FPs, ended at 45 FPs, and was 40.5 FPs in between. 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 Lillard when he 'goes off' is 74 fantasy points (his average is 43.1FPs) with a floor of 19 points.

His FanDuel average was 42.9 points and on DraftKings it was 45.6 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 29.8 and on FanDuel it was 27.5 fantasy points. He did not have a high ceiling (less than +50% over average). On Draftkings it was 61.5 and on FanDuel it was 58 FPs. He has had more bad FanDuel games (below average by 20%) than good games (20% above average), and the same was true on DraftKings. We are only including games where they were in the daily fantasy slate and played.
