Matt Cullen's Fantasy Scouting Report

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

He was the #504 ranked fantasy skater this season and the #98 center. His center ranking drops to #118 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 22 games he averaged 1.2 fantasy points which was higher than his start (0.9 FP) and his ending average (0.2 FP). A late season drop-off might be expected given his age. Using standard deviation as an indicator of consistency, Cullen is relatively inconsistent capable of very high highs and equally low lows. He averaged 0.8 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 7 fantasy points.

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 Cullen from increasing production. His average Fantasy points increased by 14% this season.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 2.4 fantasy points per week and had 11 weeks where he came up short (below 80% of average) and had 8 weeks where he was +20% above average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 5.2 points and on DraftKings it was 1.5 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. When he was bad in DFS, he was really bad with a floor of zero points. He had a relatively high ceiling. On Draftkings it was 3.5 and on FanDuel it was 12.8 FPs. 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.
