Everson Griffen's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND POSITIVE OUTLOOK FOR 2019

Everson Griffen had a decent season as a solid fantasy starter. He was the number #89 ranked defensive lineman. His value would have been slightly higher if he had played more games. Based on average fantasy points he was the #63 defensive lineman. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 3 games he averaged 4 fantasy points which was higher than his start (2 FP) and his ending average (3.5 FP). He averaged 3.2 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 6 fantasy points. Everson Griffen (2019 Season Projection: 31 Solo, 13 Ast, 9.9 Sacks, 0.6 Fumrec, 2 PDs) is projected to improve in the upcoming season. His rank based on total projected fantasy points has him as the #13 player at his position.
