Darius Philon's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND 2019 FANTASY PROJECTION

Darius Philon had an OK fantasy season if you were expecting to have him on the bench and only start in certain weeks. He was the number #103 ranked defensive lineman. His ranking drops to the #139 ranked defensive lineman when basing it on average fantasy points. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 5 games he averaged 2.6 fantasy points which was higher than his start (1.4 FP) and his ending average (2.3 FP). He is still relatively young, so his late season drop-off should not be an indicator of an overall downward trend heading into next season. His fantasy production is more volatile that most players based on having a relatively high standard deviation. When he is good, he is really good but when he is off, he is really off. Our projected ceiling for Philon when he 'goes off' is 7 fantasy points (his average is 2.1FPs). Darius Philon (2019 Season Projection: 19 Solo, 13 Ast, 4 Sacks, 1.5 PDs) 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 #106 player at his position.
