Alex Iafallo's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY VALUE

Iafallo is overrated on FanDuel with a projected 7.8 FD pts (#86 among wings). He is the #58 highest priced wing ($4700). At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $3.9K. There are 2 other options at $4700 (J.T. Miller, Anthony Mantha) and Iafallo is ranked #3 among the 3. Instead of Iafallo consider these better options at lower salaries: Corey Perry (9.4 FP), Michael Frolik (9.5 FP), Micheal Ferland (11.2 FP), Colton Sceviour (8 FP), and Thomas Vanek (9 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 9.6 FPs, a value reached in 27 of 73 games (37%). The combined 'cover percentage' for wings priced at $4.0K and above is 40%.

  • 3/23 VEGAS LINE EXPECTATION: LA 2.8 (#17 Most Today) vs ANA 2.7 (#22 Most)
  • PROJECTION (POS RANK): 7.85 Fantasy Points (#86), 0.42 points (#87), 0.19 goals (#90), 0.23 assists (#90), 1.67 shots on goal (#96), 0.2 PIM (#122 most), 0.65 blocked shots (#30)

DRAFTKINGS VALUE: Alex Iafallo is underrated on DraftKings with a projected 2.2 DK pts (#44 among left wings). He is the #53 highest priced left wing ($3100). Using the salaries and projected points for healthy players in in today's pool to calculate expected points per dollar, Iafallo is worth $3.4K. There are 5 other options at $3100 (Patrick Maroon, Sam Bennett, Mathieu Perreault, Brendan Leipsic, Artturi Lehkonen) and Iafallo is ranked #2 among the 6. Adam Johnson (2.7 FP) is projected for more points at a lower salary. Tyler Ennis (1.1 FP), Brandon Pirri (1.9 FP), Tanner Pearson (2.1 FP), Vladislav Namestnikov (2.1 FP), and Conor Sheary (2.1 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Iafallo but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 2 FPs, a value reached in 30 of 73 games (41%). The combined 'cover percentage' for left wing priced at $4.0K and above is 39%.

Iafallo 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.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

When compared to other left wings in week 26 these are 5 better options at lower start percentages: Tobias Rieder (3.1 FP), Zemgus Girgensons (4.1 FP), Jamie McGinn (4.1 FP), Brandon Dubinsky (3.5 FP), and Calle Jarnkrok (2.6 FP). He is projected for more points than 3 other left wings starting in more leagues: Derick Brassard (2.5 FP), Yanni Gourde (2.1 FP), and Alex Kerfoot (2.4 FP). He is starting in just 2% of leagues and with a projected left wing rank of #104 in week 26 it makes sense that he is not starting in many leagues.

He is projected for 2.51 fantasy points in week 26 (#105 LW) in 4 games.

    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    His latest projection based rank among left wings is #98. Based on ownership percentage (5%), Alex Iafallo has a market rank of #89 among left wings. The market is higher on Alex Iafallo than the projections are so we consider him to be overvalued. Owners probably want to consider cutting Iafallo loose and picking up a left wing with better value if they are actually planning to start him. He is projected for 7 fantasy points in 9 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#108) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Alex Iafallo behind Sorensen and above Ennis and the projections agree.

    He has a relatively high shooting percentage.

    SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

    He was the number #148 ranked wing and the #396 ranked skater overall. His wing ranking drops to #193 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 24 games he averaged 1.4 fantasy points which was higher than his start (1 FP) and his ending average (0.4 FP). He is still relatively young, so his late season drop-off should not be an indicator of an overall downward trend heading into next season. Using standard deviation as an indicator of consistency, Iafallo is relatively inconsistent capable of very high highs and equally low lows. He averaged 0.9 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 10 fantasy points.

    CURRENT CAREER TREND AND STATISTICS

    The table below shows his relatively steady fantasy production over the past 2 seasons. You would hope for more season-to-season improvement from a younger player.

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    He has averaged 2.7 fantasy points per week and had 15 weeks where he came up short (below 80% of average) and had 7 weeks where he was +20% above average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    He averaged 7.9 FD points and 2.2 DK points 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 4 and on FanDuel it was 16 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.
