Desmond King's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP WITH DOWNWARD TREND PROJECTED FOR 2019

Desmond King had a good fantasy season and was a 'second tier' fantasy star. He was the number #54 ranked DB. 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 #90 DB. 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 6.7 fantasy points which was higher than his start (3 FP) and his ending average (4.6 FP). He is young, so his late season drop-off should not be an indicator of an overall downward trend heading into next season. Using standard deviation as an indicator of consistency, King is relatively inconsistent capable of very high highs and equally low lows. Our projected ceiling for King when he 'goes off' is 12 fantasy points (his average is 4.8FPs). Desmond King (2019 Season Projection: 55 Solo, 10 Ast, 1.1 Sacks, 0.8 INTs, 0.7 Fumrec, 6.6 PDs) 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 #102 player at his position.
