Jeff Wilson is Worth More Than $3.8K on DraftKings

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.


He is one of the very best DraftKings values at running back. He is priced at $3.8K and at this price he is expected to have 10.6 points on DraftKings. With a projection of 14.5 he is worth +$1398 over this price. In his two other games, he did reach his expected point total of 10.6 DraftKings points once. With a better than expected projection rank there are other running backs you should avoid that are projected for fewer points with the same or higher salary. LeGarrette Blount (6.7 FP), Mark Ingram (14.1 FP), LeSean McCoy (13 FP), Ty Montgomery (5.2 FP), and Jordan Howard (11.6 FP) are all worse options. At $5.6K you would expect 12 FanDuel points and he is projected for 12.4 points. This difference translates to a +$187 FanDuel value. In his two other games, he did reach his expected point total of 12 FanDuel points once. Even though his projected rank is better than his salary based rank there are running backs projected for more points with the same or lower salary. Jaylen Samuels (12.7 FP) and Justin Jackson (12.6 FP) are better options.
