Dean Kukan's Fantasy Scouting Report

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

He is the number #209 ranked defender and the #667 ranked skater overall. His value would have been higher if he had played more games. Based on average fantasy points he is the #165 defender. We split his 26 games into 3 segments (start, middle, and end). He trended up as the season went on. In his first 8 games he averaged 0 FPs. He improved to 0.9 in the next 9 games. In his final stretch of games he improved to 1.7 per game. He is still relatively young, so he should be able to continue showing improvement next season. 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 Kukan when he 'goes off' is 6 fantasy points (his average is 0.9FPs).

He has averaged 1.6 fantasy points per week and had 9 weeks where he came up short (below 80% of average) and had 5 weeks where he was +20% above average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 3.8 points and on DraftKings it was 1.1 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 0 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 2.5 and 9.6 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.
