Derwin James's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND 2019 FANTASY PROJECTION

Derwin James was the #139 ranked fantasy player this season. His elite ranking was helped by his higher games played (16). Based on average fantasy points he is the #8 DB. His production dropped throughout the season. In his first 5 games he averaged 8.5 FPs and that declined to 6.5 in his final 6 games. He is young, so his late season drop-off should not be an indicator of an overall downward trend heading into next season. Based on a relatively low standard deviation, James can be considered a consistent fantasy player. He averaged 7 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 12 fantasy points with a floor of 4 points. Derwin James (2019 Season Projection: 98 Solo, 24 Ast, 2.4 Sacks, 2.4 INTs, 13.6 PDs) is projected to slightly improve in the upcoming season. His rank based on total projected fantasy points has him as the #2 player at his position.
