Danielle Hunter's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND 2019 FANTASY PROJECTION

Danielle Hunter was the number #3 ranked defensive lineman. His elite ranking was helped by his higher games played (16). Based on average fantasy points he is the #5 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 5 games he averaged 7.4 fantasy points which was higher than his start (5.8 FP) and his ending average (4.1 FP). He is young, so his late season drop-off should not be an indicator of an overall downward trend heading into next season. His standard deviation divided by his average is 0.77 which is close to the league ratio. Our projected ceiling for Hunter when he 'goes off' is 20 fantasy points (his average is 5.7FPs). Danielle Hunter (2019 Season Projection: 42 Solo, 17 Ast, 13.4 Sacks, 1.3 Fumrec, 1.2 PDs) is projected to take a slight step downward in the upcoming fantasy season. His rank based on total projected fantasy points has him as the #5 player at his position.
