Elijah McGuire's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND 2019 FANTASY PROJECTION

Elijah McGuire was a bench player and spot starter this past fantasy season. He was the #367 ranked fantasy player this season and the #54 RB. His value would have been higher if he had played more games. Based on average fantasy points he was the #37 RB. We split his 8 games into 3 segments (start, middle, and end). He showed an upward trajectory as the season went on. He averaged 6.2 FPs in his first 2 games and 12 FP in his final 3 games. Given he still relatively young, he should be able to continue showing improvement next season. Our projected ceiling for McGuire when he 'goes off' is 20 fantasy points (his average is 8.4FPs). Elijah McGuire (2019 Season Projection: 70 Rush, 270 Yards, 3.1 TDs, 26 Rec, 298 Yards, 2.4 TDs) is projected to deliver comparable fantasy value in 2019 where his projection based rank has him as the #54 player at his position.

STATISTICAL IMPROVEMENT OVER LAST SEASON

He has demonstrated the solid year-to-year improvement that you look for in a younger player. His average Fantasy points increased by 110% this season.

PAST FANTASY PERFORMANCE (2017 TO 2018)

Elijah McGuire only saw the field in 8 games in 2018. But based on his per game average, he would have been the #37 RB and is therefore someone to consider if there are no lingering concerns. In 2017 he was the #61 ranked fantasy RB and averaged 3.9 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. He is relatively stronger (stats bolded below) than weaker in more categories.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 10.1 points and on DraftKings it was 11.3 per game. We used his second highest game as his ceiling and second lowest as his floor. On DraftKings his floor was 2.5 and on FanDuel it was 2 fantasy points. He had a relatively high ceiling. On DraftKings it was 17.3 and on FanDuel it was 15.8 FPs. He has had an equal number of good (20% above average) and bad games (20% below) on FanDuel, and an equal number of good and bad games on DraftKings. We are only including games where they were in the daily fantasy slate and played.
