Curtis McElhinney's Fantasy Scouting Report

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

When compared to other goalies in week 26 instead of McElhinney consider these better options at lower start percentages: Jonathan Bernier (10.9 FP), Anders Nilsson (8.5 FP), Jack Campbell (9.3 FP), Thatcher Demko (6.7 FP), and Samuel Montembeault (8.9 FP). Starting in 13% of leagues he is expected to produce 6.7 fantasy points (WK 26). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #36 goalie of the week, but he is projected to be the #44 goalie. In terms of total fantasy points he projected to come up 1 short of expectations. In addition to being projected for fewer FP than normal, he is only playing in 1 games.

He is projected for 5.68 fantasy points in week 26 (#44 G) in 1 1 game.


  • Based on 3/23 start percentages, Curtis McElhinney is valued behind Anderson and above Schneider but the projections rank Schneider over Curtis McElhinney in week 26.
  • Curtis McElhinney last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    McElhinney is NOT in the SportsLine DraftKings optimal lineup or the FanDuel optimal lineup which are 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 uses his own proprietary model to find great DFS values and often differs from the computer in how a player is projected to play on a daily basis.

    Make sure to visit Sportsline for DFS and betting advice. We have picks on every game and line.

    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    His latest projection based rank among goalies is #38. Ranking by ownership percentage (30%), Curtis McElhinney is expected to be the #40 goalie for the rest of the season. With a lower market rank than projection rank, consider Curtis McElhinney to be slightly undervalued. He is projected for more FPs than Philipp Grubauer who has virtually the same market rank (30% Owned) as McElhinney. He is projected for 12 fantasy points in 2 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #22 highest average. The market ranks Curtis McElhinney behind DeSmith and above Grubauer but the projections rank Curtis McElhinney over DeSmith.

    Based on save percentage he 'should be' a better fantasy goalie, but this projection only assumes he starts 24% of remaining games.

    SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

    He was the number #34 ranked goalie. Not playing many games certainly was the main reason for the disappointing season. Based on average fantasy points he was the #13 goalie. We split his 29 games into 3 segments (start, middle, and end). He peaked early in the season. He averaged 7.4 FPs in his first 9 games and 6 FP in his final 10 games. A fast start and slow end is somewhat expected given his age. His standard deviation divided by his average is 0.76 which is close to the league ratio. Our projected ceiling for McElhinney when he 'goes off' is 14 fantasy points (his average is 6.1FPs).

On DraftKings his floor was -3.8 and on FanDuel it was -15.2 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 9.8 and 38.4 on FanDuel.
