Pierre-Luc Dubois is a Solid Contributor in Fantasy

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Pierre-Luc Dubois is not a fantasy star but was worth starting most weeks. He is the number #25 ranked center and the #106 ranked skater overall. His ranking drops slightly if you base things on average fantasy points where he is the #31 center. His production dropped throughout the season. In his first 27 games he averaged 2.8 FPs and that declined to 1.4 in his final 28 games. He is young, so his late season drop-off should not be an indicator of an overall downward trend heading into next season. Using standard deviation as an indicator of consistency, Dubois is relatively inconsistent capable of very high highs and equally low lows. He averaged 2.2 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 14 fantasy points.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 11.8 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. On DraftKings his floor was 0.5 and on FanDuel it was 1.6 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 7.5 and 28.8 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.
