Greg McKegg's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY VALUE

Projected for 5.2 FanDuel pts Greg McKegg is the #22 ranked center. At $3400 he is expected to be the #17 center. Based on the projection, McKegg is worth $2.5K. These are 5 better options at lower salaries: Riley Nash (5.3 FP), Alexander Wennberg (6.4 FP), Brandon Dubinsky (5.5 FP), Jordan Weal (6 FP), and David Kampf (5.8 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 7 FPs, a value reached in 8 of 34 games (24%). The combined 'cover percentage' for centers priced at $4.0K and above is 44%.

  • 3/24 VEGAS LINE EXPECTATION: CAR 2.9 (#7 Most Today) vs MON 2.6 (#9 Most)
  • PROJECTION (POS RANK): 5.22 Fantasy Points (#22), 0.29 points (#20), 0.16 goals (#14), 0.13 assists (#25), 0.89 shots on goal (#23), 0.2 PIM (#22 most), 0.5 blocked shots (#17)

DRAFTKINGS VALUE: Projected for 1.4 DraftKings pts McKegg is the #21 ranked center. He is the #20 highest priced center ($2500). Using our calculation of expected points per dollar, McKegg is worth $2.3K. There are 5 other options at $2500 (Riley Nash, Alexander Wennberg, Gabriel Bourque, Andrew Agozzino, Adam Gaudette) and McKegg is ranked #4 among the 6. He is projected for more points than 2 higher priced options: Jay Beagle (1.3 FP) and Nate Thompson (1.3 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 1.6 FPs, a value reached in 9 of 34 games (26%). The combined 'cover percentage' for center priced at $4.0K and above is 41%.

McKegg 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.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

Based on start%, Kempe is expected to produce more fantasy points than Greg McKegg but the projections say otherwise. Wagner is the player that the market has ranked 1 spot below Greg McKegg but the projections have Wagner putting up more fantasy points. He is starting in no leagues and with a projected center rank of #122 in week 26 it makes sense.

He is projected for 1.66 fantasy points in week 26 (#122 C) in 4 games.


  • Based on 3/24 start percentages, Greg McKegg is valued behind Kempe and above Wagner but the projections rank these players in reverse order in week 26.
  • Greg McKegg last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    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 centers is #119. As of 3/24, Greg McKegg is the #125 ranked center based on ownership percentage (under 1%) and season fantasy rankings. Greg McKegg's projection rank is better than their market rank. While there is value and likely a clear opportunity to acquire him via trade or waiver wire pick up it is probably not worth the roster spot at this time. He is projected for 4 fantasy points in 8 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#132) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Greg McKegg behind Dowd and above Rooney but the projections rank Rooney over Greg McKegg.

    He has a relatively high shooting percentage.

    SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

    He was the #612 ranked fantasy skater this season and the #122 center. His value would have been higher if he had played more games. Based on average fantasy points he was the #101 center. 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 1.8 FPs and that declined to 0.5 in his final 12 games. 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 0.9 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 7 fantasy points.

    STATISTICAL IMPROVEMENT OVER LAST SEASON

    He was sble to improve his fantasy production significantly this season. His fantasy average improved by 125%.

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    He has averaged 2.4 fantasy points per week and had 7 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 5.2 FD points and 1.5 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 4.5 and on FanDuel it was 16.8 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.
