A Very Good Fantasy Season for Jake Elliott

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND 2019 FANTASY PROJECTION

Jake Elliott had a good fantasy season and was a 'second tier' fantasy star. He was the #127 ranked fantasy player this season and the #15 K. 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 #19 K. He was trending up for the season. In his first 5 games he averaged 6.6 FPs. He improved to 8.3 in his final 6 games. Given his youth, he should be able to continue showing improvement next season. His standard deviation divided by his average is 0.44 which is close to the league ratio. He averaged 7.2 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 14 fantasy points. Jake Elliott (2019 Season Projection: 25-29 FGs, 2.6 FG50, 0 XPs) 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 #21 player at his position.
