Joey Bosa's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND POSITIVE OUTLOOK FOR 2019

Joey Bosa had an OK fantasy season if you were expecting to have him on the bench and only start in certain weeks. He was the number #92 ranked defensive lineman. He would have been in that next tier of defensive linemans if he had played more games. Based on average fantasy points he was the #17 defensive lineman. We split his 7 games into 3 segments (start, middle, and end). He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 2 games he averaged 7 fantasy points which was higher than his start (4.5 FP) and his ending average (2.8 FP). He is young, so his late season drop-off should not be an indicator of an overall downward trend heading into next season. He averaged 4.5 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 8 fantasy points. Joey Bosa (2019 Season Projection: 44 Solo, 12 Ast, 13.8 Sacks, 1.4 Fumrec, 1.4 PDs) is projected to improve in the upcoming season. His rank based on total projected fantasy points has him as the #4 player at his position.

STATISTICAL DROPOFF FROM PREVIOUS SEASON

As a young player, his dropoff in fantasy production is disappointing. His fantasy average dropped by 15 percent.

PAST FANTASY PERFORMANCE (2017 TO 2018)

Joey Bosa only saw the field in 7 games in 2018. It is important to note that if he played a full season, at his average, he would be ranked as the #16 DL. In 2017 he was the #4 ranked fantasy DL and averaged 5.3 FP per game. Assuming he can be back on the field as strong as he has in the past, Bosa is poised to re-establish himself as an elite fantasy DL. He is relatively stronger (stats bolded below) than weaker in more categories.
