Max Pacioretty Contributed as a Spot Starter in Fantasy

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Max Pacioretty had an OK fantasy season if you were expecting to have him on the bench and only start in certain weeks. He is the number #88 ranked wing and the #269 ranked skater overall. His ranking drops to the #93 ranked wing when basing it on average fantasy points. He peaked early in the season. He averaged 1.8 FPs in his first 22 games and 1.2 FP in his final 23 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. Our projected ceiling for Pacioretty when he 'goes off' is 10 fantasy points (his average is 1.6FPs).

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 11.7 points and on DraftKings it was 3.2 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 6 and on FanDuel it was 22.4 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.
