Marcus Kruger's Fantasy Scouting Report

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

He is the number #115 ranked center and the #600 ranked skater overall. His center ranking drops to #139 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 0.6 fantasy points which was higher than his start (0.5 FP) and his ending average (0.3 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. He averaged 0.5 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 7 fantasy points.

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 IMPROVEMENT OVER LAST SEASON

Based on his fantasy point average, he is on a clear upward swing. His fantasy average improved by 67%.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 1.2 fantasy points per week and had 15 weeks where he came up short (below 80% of average) and had 11 weeks where he was +20% above average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

He averaged 4.1 FD points and 1.2 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 2.5 and on FanDuel it was 9.6 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.
