    SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

    Casey DeSmith 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 #29 ranked goalie. His ranking drops to the #32 ranked goalie when basing it on average fantasy points. We split his 36 games into 3 segments (start, middle, and end). He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 13 games he averaged 6.6 fantasy points which was higher than his start (4.8 FP) and his ending average (4.2 FP). 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 DeSmith when he 'goes off' is 16 fantasy points (his average is 5.3FPs).
