AJ McCarron's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

AJ McCarron is not projected to be worth a roster spot based on total fantasy points the rest of the season. His 6 projected fantasy points puts him at #56 behind Brett Rypien and ahead of Logan Woodside. He has averaged 8.45 fantasy points in his past 4 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 0.6 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#57) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. With 2 games played, he is the #48 ranked quarterback this season.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

AJ MCCARRON WEEK 9 AND 10 FANTASY OUTLOOK

AJ McCarron is projected for 0.8 fantasy points in week 9 which only ranks him as the #42 projected quarterback and not a fantasy relevant player for the week. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Jarrett Stidham but behind Mitchell Trubisky. Week 10 will not be as good based on projected rank (#48). He is projected for 0.7 fantasy points.

AJ MCCARRON IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $6K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $4.9K

He is projected for 0.7 FanDuel points and 0.7 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$5733 short of $6K on FanDuel and -$4682 short of $4.9K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
