Dede Westbrook is Projected to Have a Strong Week 10

As you may have noticed we have transformed Scout into a data and stats driven service geared towards helping invested fans make the right decisions on a daily basis. This is our new Fantasy Scouting Report that we produce for each fantasy relevant player. We treat them like a stock and report their value in season long fantasy, the current fantasy week, and if applicable, on FanDuel and on DraftKings. We establish what is expected of the player based on fantasy ownership %, start %, and DFS Salary and see if our proprietary forecasting model projects a better or worse than expected performance. For complete recaps of the best and worst values for each market (season, weekly, daily), injury reports and team outlooks be sure to check out the new Scout.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

Dede Westbrook is projected to be the #44 wide receiver the rest of the season. This week he is projected to be #31 at his position. He is projected to beat market expectations where he is the #52 wide receiver based on ownership. Most fantasy players have roughly 30% of their weekly projections deviate significantly from their season average, but he is projected to be more stable and consistent than most. Owners will like the projection that he is not projected for any really bad weeks but is projected for one good one.

DAILY FANTASY VALUE (DRAFTKINGS & FANDUEL)

On DraftKings, this is an unusual case where a player is worth less than their salary ($4.7K) but also have a projected rank (#29 wide receiver) that is better than their salary based rank (#39). He hit this expected level of performance in 28% of games. Even though his projected rank is better than his salary based rank there are wide receivers projected for more points with the same or lower salary. Tyrell Williams (13.9 FP), for example, is a better option. Based on a FanDuel price of $5.4K, he is expected to be the #40 wide receiver on FanDuel, but their projected rank is #24. Despite this better ranking, he is still worth $-108 dollars less than this price. He reached his expected point total of 10 FanDuel points 6 times (33%). Even though his projected rank is better than his salary based rank there are wide receivers projected for more points with the same or lower salary. Mike Williams (10.5 FP), Christian Kirk (9.8 FP), and Marquez Valdes-Scantling (12.5 FP) are all better options.
