Dougie Hamilton's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Most already consider Dougie Hamilton to be a good starting defenseman, but the projections indicate he is an elite fantasy option. As of 3/19, Dougie Hamilton is the #34 ranked defenseman based on ownership percentage (87%). The projections have him 12 spots higher in the rankings. Even if he is highly owned, he is still undervalued and if you act quickly there is a clear buy low opportunity. Unless someone offers an even better defenseman value, we advise you to hold on to him. He is projected for 16 fantasy points in 11 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#28) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Dougie Hamilton behind Ekblad and above Theodore and the projections agree.

Make sure to visit Sportsline for DFS and betting advice. We have picks on every game and line.

His job is clearly to score goals and not assist on them.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

If you are in a league that allows for substitutions during the week Dougie Hamilton is a good value the rest of the week. He has a market rank of #34 while his projection rank (rest of week 25) is #11. When compared to other defensemen in week 26 these are 5 better options at lower start percentages: Rasmus Ristolainen (6.6 FP), T.J. Brodie (6.7 FP), Travis Hamonic (5.4 FP), Erik Karlsson (5.8 FP), and Alexander Edler (6.1 FP). Oliver Ekman-Larsson (4.8 FP), Tyson Barrie (4 FP), Jared Spurgeon (3.7 FP), Ryan Suter (4 FP), and Jeff Petry (4 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Hamilton but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 74% of leagues he is expected to produce 5 fantasy points (WK 26). Week 26 market expectations match his projection. He is expected to be the #27 defenseman (projected to be #27).

He is projected for 4.99 fantasy points in week 26 (#27 D) in 4 games.


  • Based on 3/19 start percentages, Dougie Hamilton is valued behind Ekblad and above McAvoy and the projections agree for this week.
  • Dougie Hamilton last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    DAILY FANTASY VALUE

    FANDUEL VALUE (3/19): Projected for 13 FanDuel pts Dougie Hamilton is the #10 ranked defenseman. At $5600 he is expected to be the #12 defenseman. Using the salaries and projected points for healthy players in in today's pool to calculate expected points per dollar, Hamilton is worth $6.5K. Tyson Barrie is also priced at $5600 and is a better option at this price. He is projected for more points than 3 higher priced options: Torey Krug (6.3 FP), Keith Yandle (12.4 FP), and Shayne Gostisbehere (12.4 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 11.3 FPs, a value reached in 25 of 71 games (35%). The combined 'cover percentage' for defensemen priced at $4.0K and above is 42%.

    DRAFTKINGS VALUE: Based on a projected 3.7 DraftKings points Hamilton is fairly ranked. At $5600 he is expected to be the #9 defenseman. At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $5.8K. Instead of Hamilton consider these better options at lower salaries: John Klingberg (3.8 FP) and Seth Jones (4 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 3.6 FPs, a value reached in 20 of 71 games (28%). The combined 'cover percentage' for defenseman priced at $4.0K and above is 39%.

    Hamilton 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

    Dougie Hamilton had a good fantasy season and was a 'second tier' fantasy star. He was the number #34 ranked defender and the #169 ranked skater overall. His high ranking was definitely helped by his number of games played (71). Based on average fantasy points he is the #52 defender. He showed an upward trajectory as the season went on. He averaged 1.2 FPs in his first 23 games and 3.1 FP in his final 24 games. Given he still relatively young, he should be able to continue showing improvement next season. His standard deviation divided by his average is 1.98 which is close to the league ratio. He averaged 1.8 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 18 fantasy points.

On DraftKings his floor was 1 and on FanDuel it was 3.2 fantasy points. He had a relatively high ceiling. On Draftkings it was 5 and on FanDuel it was 20 FPs.
