JuJu Smith-Schuster's Fantasy Scouting Report

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.

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND 2019 FANTASY PROJECTION

JuJu Smith-Schuster was the number #9 ranked WR and the #50 ranked player overall. His elite ranking was helped by his higher games played (16). Based on average fantasy points he is the #11 WR. He was trending up for the season. In his first 5 games he averaged 11.4 FPs. He improved to 13.2 in his final 6 games. Given his youth, he should be able to continue showing improvement next season. His fantasy production is stable and he is not as volatile as most players based on a below average standard deviation. Our projected ceiling for Smith-Schuster when he 'goes off' is 25 fantasy points (his average is 11.8FPs) with a floor of 4 points. JuJu Smith-Schuster (2019 Season Projection: 107 Rec, 1446 Yards, 7.5 TDs) is projected to slightly improve in the upcoming season. His rank based on total projected fantasy points has him as the #6 player at his position.

SportsLine has the best NFL picks and Daily Fantasy Lineups. In the off-season check out our coverage of all major leagues (MLB, NBA, NHL, Horses, NASCAR, and Golf).

STATISTICAL IMPROVEMENT OVER LAST SEASON

As a young player he improved as you would like. His fantasy average improved by 20%.

PAST FANTASY PERFORMANCE (2017 TO 2018)

He was the #9 ranked fantasy WR based on total fantasy points. He averaged 11.6 FP per game (#12 ranked based on average). He is holding steady season-to-season in terms of per game fantasy ranking. He is relatively weaker than stronger in more categories. The strengths are bolded below.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

He averaged 15.3 FD points and 20.4 DK points per game. We used his second highest game as his ceiling and second lowest as his floor. On DraftKings his floor was 7.3 and on FanDuel it was 5.3 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 36 and 29 on FanDuel. He has had more bad FanDuel games (below average by 20%) than good games (20% above average), and the same was true on DraftKings. We are only including games where they were in the daily fantasy slate and played.
