Samuel Girard's Fantasy Scouting Report

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Samuel Girard is a bench player and spot starter this past fantasy season. He is the number #79 ranked defender and the #295 ranked skater overall. Playing 82 games helped him maintain his value. Based on average fantasy points he is the #112 defender. He showed an upward trajectory as the season went on. He averaged 1.4 FPs in his first 27 games and 1.8 FP in his final 28 games. Given his youth, he should be able to continue showing improvement next season. 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. He averaged 1.2 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 8 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

He has demonstrated the solid year-to-year improvement that you look for in a younger player. His average Fantasy points increased by 20% this season.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 3.6 fantasy points per week and had 15 weeks where he came up short (below 80% of average) and had 10 weeks where he was +20% above average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 7.1 points and on DraftKings it was 2 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. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 4.5 and 16.8 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.
