    SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

    Anze Kopitar had an OK fantasy season if you were expecting to have him on the bench and only start in certain weeks. He was the number #41 ranked center and the #190 ranked skater overall. His ranking drops to the #46 ranked center when basing it on average fantasy points. His production dropped throughout the season. In his first 24 games he averaged 1.9 FPs and that declined to 1.5 in his final 25 games. 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 Kopitar when he 'goes off' is 10 fantasy points (his average is 1.8FPs).

    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 DROPOFF FROM PREVIOUS SEASON

    Getting older predictably resulted in a drop in production. His fantasy average dropped by 42 percent.

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    He has averaged 5.1 fantasy points per week and had 10 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 11.8 points and on DraftKings it was 3.2 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 6 and 22.9 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.
