Saku Maenalanen's Fantasy Scouting Report

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

He is the #650 ranked fantasy skater this season and the #252 wing. His value would have been higher if he had played more games. Based on average fantasy points he is the #241 wing. We split his 34 games into 3 segments (start, middle, and end). His production dropped throughout the season. In his first 11 games he averaged 1.6 FPs and that declined to 0.3 in his final 12 games. He is still relatively young, so his late season drop-off should not be an indicator of an overall downward trend heading into 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. He averaged 0.7 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 8 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).

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 1.7 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

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.
