In terms of total fantasy points he projected to come up 3.7 short of expectations. Even though his per game projected FP average is not better than normal, he will benefit from playing 2 games.

There are other goalies with virtually the same market rank (Frederik Andersen, Sergei Bobrovsky, Pekka Rinne, Braden Holtby, Connor Hellebuyck 87% Owned) and Jones ranks #2 out of 6. He is projected for 49 fantasy points in 8 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#9) based on projected fantasy average.

    SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

    Martin Jones had a good, but not elite, year in fantasy. He was the number #9 ranked goalie. Even though he missed his fair share of games, had played enough to make his overall fantasy rank better than what it is based on average fantasy points where he is the #25 goalie. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 18 games he averaged 6.5 fantasy points which was higher than his start (4.3 FP) and his ending average (5.7 FP). Using standard deviation as an indicator of consistency, Jones is relatively inconsistent capable of very high highs and equally low lows. He averaged 5.5 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 13 fantasy points.
