Jake Guentzel's Rest of Season Value is Surprising

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Most already consider Jake Guentzel to be a good starting left wing, but the projections indicate he is an elite fantasy option. Ranking by ownership percentage (95%), Jake Guentzel is expected to be the #19 left wing for the rest of the season. He is projected to be the #8 left wing. Even if he is highly owned, he is still undervalued and if you act quickly there is a clear buy low opportunity. Unless someone offers an even better left wing value, we advise you to hold on to him. He is projected for more FPs than Anders Lee who has virtually the same market rank (95% Owned) as Guentzel. He is projected for 106 fantasy points in 35 remaining games. His projected average FP rank is the same as his rest of season total rank. The market ranks Jake Guentzel behind Lee and above Parise but the projections rank Jake Guentzel over Lee.

Guentzel 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.
