Xavier Grimble's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND POSITIVE OUTLOOK FOR 2019

He was the number #94 ranked TE and the #1211 ranked player overall. His TE ranking drops to #105 when basing it on average fantasy points. 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 1.9 fantasy points which was higher than his start (0.4 FP) and his ending average (0.6 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. He averaged 0.9 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 4 fantasy points. Xavier Grimble (2019 Season Projection: 12 Rec, 151 Yards, 0.6 TDs) is projected to improve in the upcoming season. His rank based on total projected fantasy points has him as the #79 player at his position.

DOWNWARD STATISTICAL CAREER TREND

He is getting less productive when, based on age, he should be reaching his peak. His average Fantasy points have dropped by 70% over this time frame.

PAST FANTASY PERFORMANCE (2017 TO 2018)

Xavier Grimble only saw the field in 7 games in 2018. In 2017 he was the #66 ranked fantasy TE and averaged 1.2 FP per game. If he has any issues staying on the field in 2019 his value could decline given his average based rank is lower than his totals based rank.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 1.9 points and on DraftKings it was 2.5 per game. We used his second highest game as his ceiling and second lowest as his floor. On DraftKings his floor was 1.3 and on FanDuel it was 0.8 fantasy points. His DraftKings ceiling was 1.9 fantasy points and 1.4 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.
