Kris Letang's Fantasy Scouting Report

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Kris Letang is the number #5 ranked defender and the #50 ranked skater overall. His value would have been even better if he played as many games as other elite defenders. Based on average fantasy points he is the #4 defender. His fantasy production did not rise or fall significantly as the season went on. If you break up his season into 3 equal segments (start, middle, end) his average started at 3.7 FPs, ended at 3.4 FPs, and was 3.5 FPs in between. His fantasy production is stable and he is not as volatile as most players based on a below average standard deviation. He averaged 3.5 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 14 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

Getting older did not stop Letang from increasing production. His average Fantasy points increased by 59% this season.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

Out of 22 fantasy weeks, he was +20% above his weekly average of 10.4 FPs in 10 of them. He had 10 bad weeks where he was 20% below average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 15.7 points and on DraftKings it was 4.4 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 1 and on FanDuel it was 3.2 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 8 and 31.2 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.
