Evgeny Kuznetsov's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY VALUE

Kuznetsov is overrated on FanDuel with a projected 13.6 FD pts (#3 among centers). At $7800 he is expected to be the #2 center. Based on the projection, Kuznetsov is worth $7K. Sebastian Aho (15.8 FP) is projected for more points at a lower salary. Based on salary, he is expected to have 15.3 FPs, a value reached in 30 of 81 games (37%). The combined 'cover percentage' for centers priced at $4.0K and above is 41%.

  • 4/22 VEGAS LINE EXPECTATION: WAS 2.7 (#2 Most Today) @ CAR 2.8 (#1 Most)
  • PROJECTION (POS RANK): 13.65 Fantasy Points (#3), 0.99 points (#3), 0.3 goals (#3), 0.68 assists (#1), 2.32 shots on goal (#4), 0.6 PIM (#1 most), 0.34 blocked shots (#11)

DRAFTKINGS VALUE: Evgeny Kuznetsov is underrated on DraftKings with a projected 3.6 DK pts (#3 among centers). At $5600 he is expected to be the #4 center. At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $5.9K (expected pts per $ is calculated daily based on the average of healthy starters). Based on salary, he is expected to have 3.5 FPs, a value reached in 38 of 81 games (47%). The combined 'cover percentage' for center priced at $4.0K and above is 40%.

Kuznetsov is in the SportsLine DraftKings optimal lineup 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 is not in the FanDuel optimal lineup but Nick Bonino is.

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Evgeny Kuznetsov had a good fantasy season and was a 'second tier' fantasy star. He is the number #19 ranked center and the #91 ranked skater overall. His solid ranking drops slightly if you base things on average fantasy points where he is the #22 center. He peaked early in the season. He averaged 3.2 FPs in his first 25 games and 1.8 FP in his final 26 games. His standard deviation divided by his average is 1.24 which is close to the league ratio. Our projected ceiling for Kuznetsov when he 'goes off' is 12 fantasy points (his average is 2.5FPs).

CURRENT CAREER TREND AND STATISTICS

He has increased his FP average by 19 percent from two seasons ago.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 7.4 fantasy points per week and had 10 weeks where he came up short (below 80% of average) and had 7 weeks where he was +20% above average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

He averaged 13.4 FD points and 3.6 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 7.5 and on FanDuel it was 28 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.
