Austin Ekeler's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP WITH DOWNWARD TREND PROJECTED FOR 2019

Austin Ekeler had a good fantasy season and was a 'second tier' fantasy star. He was the #88 ranked fantasy player this season and the #24 RB. Even though he missed a few games, he played enough to make his overall fantasy rank better than what it is based on average fantasy points where he is the #30 RB. His fantasy production did not rise or fall significantly as the season went on. If you break up his season into 3 equal segments (start, middle, end) his average started at 11.5 FPs, ended at 10.9 FPs, and was 7.6 FPs in between. Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Ekeler can be considered a consistent fantasy player. He averaged 9.9 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 19 fantasy points with a floor of 3 points. Austin Ekeler (2019 Season Projection: 111 Rush, 505 Yards, 2.8 TDs, 37 Rec, 362 Yards, 2.4 TDs) is projected to take a significant step downward in the upcoming fantasy season. His rank based on total projected fantasy points has him as the #40 player at his position.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 10.6 points and on DraftKings it was 12.1 per game. We used his second highest game as his ceiling and second lowest as his floor. On DraftKings his floor was 1.9 and on FanDuel it was 1.9 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 23.6 and 21.1 on FanDuel. 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.
