The Best FanDuel Value? Fournier at $5.8, Schroder at $5.7, or Wade at $5.6?


Dennis Schroder is underrated on FanDuel with a projected 27.9 FD pts (#9 among shooting guards). He is the #16 highest priced shooting guard ($5700). Based on 12/7 salaries and projected points per dollar, Schroder is worth $6.6K. Dwyane Wade (29.7 FP) is projected for more points at a lower salary. Evan Fournier (25.2 FP), Jeremy Lamb (22.4 FP), Justin Holiday (22.6 FP), Buddy Hield (24.5 FP), and Malcolm Brogdon (22.6 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Schroder but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 24.2 FPs, a value reached in 16 of 23 games (70%). The combined 'cover percentage' for shooting guards priced at $4.0K and above is 52%.

DRAFTKINGS VALUE: Schroder is underrated on DraftKings with a projected 29.5 DK pts (#15 among point guards). He is the #22 highest priced point guard ($5500). At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $6.1K (expected pts per $ is calculated daily based on the average of healthy starters). These are 2 better options at lower salaries: Dwyane Wade (30.8 FP) and Reggie Jackson (30 FP). Goran Dragic (28.6 FP), Darren Collison (27.3 FP), Spencer Dinwiddie (27.1 FP), Malcolm Brogdon (23.9 FP), and Lonzo Ball (26.4 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Schroder but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 26.4 FPs, a value reached in 16 of 23 games (70%). The combined 'cover percentage' for point guards priced at $4.0K and above is 47%.

Schroder is NOT in the SportsLine DraftKings optimal lineup or the FanDuel optimal lineup which are based on the computer model's projection. also offers premium optimal lineups from Mike McClure, a professional DFS player who has over $1 million in career winnings. 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.


If you are in a league that allows for substitutions during the week Dennis Schroder is a bad value the rest of the week. He has a market rank of #33 while his projection (rest of week 8) rank is #62. Devin Booker (155.8 FP) is projected for more points and is starting in fewer leagues. Chris Paul (108.1 FP), Ricky Rubio (88 FP), Jeff Teague (80.1 FP), Jrue Holiday (106.2 FP), and Eric Bledsoe (93.9 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Schroder but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 62% of leagues he is expected to produce 88.7 fantasy points (WK 9). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #32 guard of week 9. He is projected to be better than that (the #15 guard). Even though his per game projected FP average is not better than normal, he will benefit from playing 4 games.

    Based on ownership percentage (96%), Dennis Schroder has a market rank of #33 among guards. Projected to be a backup guard his value could reach market expectations if there is an injury to the starters. Buddy Hield has virtually the same market rank (96% Owned) and is projected for more points than Schroder. He is projected for 1288 fantasy points in 59 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#49) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Dennis Schroder behind Hield and above Fournier but the projections rank Fournier over Dennis Schroder. 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. He gets assists as well, so it is his defensive stats that need improvement.
