He uses his own proprietary model to find great DFS values and often differs from the computer in how a player is projected to play on a daily basis.

    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    The latest projections virtually match what is expected of Collin Sexton, at least in terms of position ranking. Ranking by ownership percentage (80%), Collin Sexton is expected to be the #49 guard for the rest of the season. Projections rank him #48. He is projected for 799 fantasy points in 37 remaining games. His projected average FP rank is the same as his rest of season total rank. The market ranks Collin Sexton behind Mudiay and above Batum but the projections rank Batum over Collin Sexton. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly lower in 4 categories than his overall fantasy point ranking and these are relative weaknesses. His strength is scoring, and if he could improve from 3pt range his value would increase. But sharing the ball and accumulating defensive stats need improvement.
