Austin Rivers's Fantasy Scouting Report

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

He is the number #40 ranked small forward and the #188 ranked player overall. His small forward ranking drops to #50 when basing it on average fantasy points. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 25 games he averaged 19.8 fantasy points which was higher than his start (12.8 FP) and his ending average (11.6 FP). He is still relatively young, so his late season drop-off should not be an indicator of an overall downward trend heading into next season. Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Rivers can be considered a consistent fantasy player. He averaged 14.7 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 32 fantasy points.

SportsLine has the best NBA picks and Daily Fantasy Lineups. In the off-season check out our coverage of all major leagues (NFL, MLB, NHL, Horses, NASCAR, and Golf).

STATISTICAL DROPOFF FROM PREVIOUS SEASON

It is not a good sign to see a drop-off in production in a young player. His average fantasy points decreased by 41% this season. His minutes per game have decreased and his usage is down.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 45 fantasy points per week and had 10 weeks where he exceeded that by 20% and 8 'bad' weeks where he came up 20% short of his average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

He averaged 15.4 FD points and 16.1 DK points 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 3.2 and on FanDuel it was 2.5 fantasy points. He had a relatively high ceiling. On Draftkings it was 27.8 and on FanDuel it was 28 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.
