Sidney Crosby'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.

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Sidney Crosby is the number #4 ranked center and the #30 ranked skater overall. Crosby did not show a clear upward or downward trend as the season progressed. He averaged 3.6 FPs in his first 26 games, 3.3 in the middle of his season and 3.3 in his final 3.3 games. Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Crosby can be considered a consistent fantasy player. Our projected ceiling for Crosby when he 'goes off' is 13 fantasy points (his average is 3.4FPs).

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

STATISTICAL IMPROVEMENT OVER LAST SEASON

Getting older did not stop Crosby from increasing production. His fantasy average improved by 21%.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

Out of 26 fantasy weeks, he was +20% above his weekly average of 10.5 FPs in 11 of them. He had 11 bad weeks where he was 20% below average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 17 points and on DraftKings it was 4.6 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 0.5 and on FanDuel it was 1.6 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 8 and 32.8 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.
