Jon Merrill's Fantasy Scouting Report

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Jon Merrill is a bench player and spot starter this past fantasy season. He is the #366 ranked fantasy skater this season and the #100 defender. His value would have been higher if he had played more games. Based on average fantasy points he is the #87 defender. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 19 games he averaged 1.9 fantasy points which was higher than his start (0.7 FP) and his ending average (1.6 FP). His standard deviation divided by his average is 1.87 which is close to the league ratio. Our projected ceiling for Merrill when he 'goes off' is 10 fantasy points (his average is 1.4FPs).

UPWARD STATISTICAL CAREER TREND

He has improved his fantasy point average for the past two seasons. His three season trend show an increase of 367% in fantasy points per game.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 3.4 fantasy points per week and had 14 weeks where he came up short (below 80% of average) and had 7 weeks where he was +20% above average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 6.6 points and on DraftKings it was 1.9 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. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 3 and 11.2 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.
