Jack Johnson's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Ranking by ownership percentage (8%), Jack Johnson is expected to be the #108 defenseman for the rest of the season. The market expects more than the projections do. He is only projected to be the #140 defenseman. Most owners expect to start Johnson every active week, but we think they might have to bench him in certain situations. Owners probably want to consider cutting Johnson loose and picking up a defenseman with better value if they are actually planning to start him. He is projected for 6 fantasy points in 8 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#132) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Jack Johnson behind DeMelo and above Chiarot but the projections rank these players in reverse order.

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

His rank in goals is better than his SOG rank indicating a relatively high shooting %.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

When compared to other defensemen in week 26 these are 5 better options at lower start percentages: Connor Murphy (2.8 FP), Michael Stone (2.7 FP), Adam McQuaid (3.1 FP), Joe Morrow (3.4 FP), and Kevan Miller (2.5 FP). He is starting in just 4% of leagues and with a projected defenseman rank of #152 in week 26 it makes sense that he is not starting in many leagues.

He is projected for 1.9 fantasy points in week 26 (#153 D) in 3 games.


  • Based on 3/21 start percentages, Jack Johnson is valued behind DeMelo and above Oesterle but the projections rank these players in reverse order in week 26.
  • Jack Johnson last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    DAILY FANTASY VALUE

    DRAFTKINGS VALUE (3/21): Projected for 2 DraftKings pts Jack Johnson is the #92 ranked defenseman. At $2800 he is expected to be the #117 defenseman. At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $3K (expected pts per $ is calculated daily based on the average of healthy starters). There are 4 other options at $2800 (Niklas Hjalmarsson, Michael Del Zotto, Mark Borowiecki, Brandon Carlo) and Johnson is ranked #3 among the 5. Instead of Johnson consider these better options at lower salaries: Thomas Hickey (2 FP) and Jan Rutta (2 FP). Michael Stone (1 FP), Christian Folin (1.9 FP), Jon Merrill (1 FP), Johnny Boychuk (1.4 FP), and Ben Lovejoy (1.9 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Johnson but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 1.8 FPs, a value reached in 33 of 74 games (45%). The combined 'cover percentage' for defenseman priced at $4.0K and above is 39%.

    FANDUEL VALUE: Projected for 6.6 FanDuel pts Jack Johnson is the #99 ranked defenseman. At $3500 he is expected to be the #96 defenseman. Based on the projection, Johnson is worth $3.2K. Nikita Zadorov (6.1 FP), Niklas Kronwall (6.4 FP), Nathan Beaulieu (3.4 FP), Johnny Boychuk (4.7 FP), and Braydon Coburn (6.3 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Johnson but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 7.2 FPs, a value reached in 24 of 74 games (32%). The combined 'cover percentage' for defensemen priced at $4.0K and above is 41%.

    Johnson 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

    He was the #516 ranked fantasy skater this season and the #153 defender. His defender ranking drops to #219 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 25 games he averaged 0.8 fantasy points which was higher than his start (0.4 FP) and his ending average (0.6 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 Johnson when he 'goes off' is 6 fantasy points (his average is 0.6FPs).

    STATISTICAL IMPROVEMENT OVER LAST SEASON

    Johnson may be getting older but he did get better this season. His fantasy average improved by 20%.

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    He has averaged 1.9 fantasy points per week and had 11 weeks where he came up short (below 80% of average) and had 9 weeks where he was +20% above average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    His FanDuel average was 6.2 points and on DraftKings it was 1.8 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. On DraftKings his floor was 0.5 and on FanDuel it was 1.6 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 3 and 11.2 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.
