Corey Crawford's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Most already consider Corey Crawford to be a good starting goalie, but the projections indicate he is an elite fantasy option. Ranking by ownership percentage (66%), Corey Crawford is expected to be the #22 goalie for the rest of the season. His projection based goalie rank is #9. Even as an established quality fantasy option, if he lives up to projections he is still undervalued and there could be an opportunity to buy 'low'. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better goalie option available. He is projected for more FPs than Thomas Greiss who has virtually the same market rank (66% Owned) as Crawford. He is projected for 32 fantasy points in 6 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#29) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Corey Crawford behind Hart and above Greiss but the projections rank Corey Crawford over Hart.

He is projected for more wins as than you would expect based on his save percentage rank.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

If you are in a league that allows for substitutions during the week Corey Crawford is a good value the rest of the week. He has a market rank of #22 while his projection rank (rest of week 25) is #14. When compared to other goalies in week 26 these are 4 better options at lower start percentages: Henrik Lundqvist (16.4 FP), Carter Hart (15.3 FP), David Rittich (25.5 FP), and Mikko Koskinen (18.3 FP). Devan Dubnyk (10.4 FP), Carey Price (12.4 FP), Pekka Rinne (10.6 FP), Ben Bishop (12 FP), and Andrei Vasilevskiy (11.8 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Crawford but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 41% of leagues he is expected to produce 13.1 fantasy points (WK 26). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #18 goalie of week 26. He is projected to be better than that (the #14 goalie). His per game projected FP average is 5.2 which is better than his actual per game average (4.1).

He is projected for 15.09 fantasy points in week 26 (#14 G) in 3 games.


  • Based on 3/24 start percentages, Corey Crawford is valued behind Gibson and above Varlamov but the projections rank these players in reverse order in week 26.
  • Corey Crawford last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    Crawford is NOT in the SportsLine DraftKings optimal lineup or the FanDuel optimal lineup which are based on the computer model's projection. SportsLine.com also offers premium optimal lineups from Mike McClure, a professional DFS player who has over $1 million in career winnings. He uses his own proprietary model to find great DFS values and often differs from the computer in how a player is projected to play on a daily basis.

    SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

    He was the number #37 ranked goalie. His goalie ranking drops to #39 when basing it on average fantasy points. We split his 33 games into 3 segments (start, middle, and end). He was trending up for the season. In his first 10 games he averaged 5.4 FPs. He improved to 6.3 in his final 11 games. 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 Crawford when he 'goes off' is 18 fantasy points (his average is 5.1FPs).

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    He averaged 18.1 FD points and 4.5 DK points per game. We looked at all of his games that were between the 10th and 90th percentile where the 10th percentile is his floor and the 90th is his ceiling. On DraftKings his floor was -1.2 and on FanDuel it was -4.8 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 9.4 and 37.6 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.
