Deandre Ayton is a Strong DFS Play and Khris Middleton is One to Fade

Welcome to the newly updated version of Scout. We have decided to embrace our name and re-launch as a sports forecasting and statistics service geared towards delivering Scouting Reports for every league, team and fantasy relevant player. Our league reports focus on Power Rankings, Injuries, Season Futures, and coverage of every Fantasy 'market' (season, current week, DFS). We encourage you to check out our new NBA page and hope you enjoy the new Scout.

Deandre Ayton

Projected for 35 FanDuel pts Deandre Ayton is the #1 ranked center. He is the #4 highest priced center ($7500). Using our calculation of expected points per dollar, Ayton is worth $8.2K. He is projected for more points than 3 higher priced options: Steven Adams (30.2 FP), Jusuf Nurkic (29.9 FP), and Clint N`Dumba-Capela (32.3 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 32.1 FPs, a value reached in 6 of 10 games (60%). The combined 'cover percentage' for centers priced at $4.0K and above is 47%.

Projected for 37.8 DraftKings pts Ayton is the #1 ranked center. He is the #2 highest priced center ($6800). Based on 11/8 salaries and projected points per dollar, Ayton is worth $7.5K. Based on salary, he is expected to have 34.4 FPs, a value reached in 7 of 10 games (70%). The combined 'cover percentage' for centers priced at $4.0K and above is 46%.

Louis Williams and Al Horford are also good values on both FanDuel and DraftKings on 11/8.

Khris Middleton

Projected for 32.8 DraftKings pts Khris Middleton is the #2 ranked shooting guard. At $6700 he is expected to be the #1 shooting guard. Based on the projection, Middleton is worth $6.5K. Klay Thompson (34.6 FP) is projected for more points at a lower salary. Based on salary, he is expected to have 33.9 FPs, a value reached in 7 of 10 games (70%). The combined 'cover percentage' for shooting guards priced at $4.0K and above is 28%.

Khris Middleton is overrated on FanDuel with a projected 31.4 FD pts (#6 among shooting guards). At $7500 he is expected to be the #3 shooting guard. Using our calculation of expected points per dollar, Middleton is worth $7.3K. Instead of Middleton consider these better options at lower salaries: Louis Williams (37.8 FP), Klay Thompson (31.9 FP), and C.J. McCollum (32.3 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 32.1 FPs, a value reached in 6 of 10 games (60%). The combined 'cover percentage' for shooting guards priced at $4.0K and above is 46%.

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Clint N`Dumba-Capela are also bad values on both FanDuel and DraftKings.
