Dmitry Orlov's Fantasy Scouting Report

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

If you are in a league that allows for substitutions during the week, Dmitry Orlov could be someone to consider. He is projected to be the #23 defenseman the rest of week 25 and he is only starting in 22% of leagues. When compared to other defensemen in week 26 these are 5 better options at lower start percentages: Sami Vatanen (2.9 FP), Michael Stone (2.9 FP), Adam McQuaid (3 FP), Ron Hainsey (3.6 FP), and Kris Russell (3.3 FP). Cam Fowler (2.2 FP), Hampus Lindholm (2.4 FP), Colin Miller (2.5 FP), Mikhail Sergachev (2.5 FP), and Miro Heiskanen (2.5 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Orlov but are starting in more leagues. He is starting in just 22% of leagues and with a projected defenseman rank of #110 in week 26 it makes sense that he is not starting in many leagues.

He is projected for 2.7 fantasy points in week 26 (#110 D) in 3 games.


  • Based on 3/24 start percentages, Dmitry Orlov is valued behind Slavin and above Pionk but the projections rank Pionk over Dmitry Orlov in week 26.
  • Dmitry Orlov last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    Orlov 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.

    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 defensemen is #79. Ranking by ownership percentage (34%), Dmitry Orlov is expected to be the #71 defenseman for the rest of the season. The market is higher on Dmitry Orlov than the projections are so we consider him to be overvalued. He is projected for more FPs than Ryan Murray who has virtually the same market rank (34% Owned) as Orlov. He is projected for 7 fantasy points in 7 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#86) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Dmitry Orlov behind Slavin and above Murray and the projections agree.

    His projected shooting percentage is lower than you would like.

    SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

    Dmitry Orlov was not a fantasy star but was worth starting most weeks. He was the number #71 ranked defender and the #279 ranked skater overall. Avoiding serious injury and playing 75 games helped him maintain his value. Based on average fantasy points he is the #100 defender. He showed an upward trajectory as the season went on. He averaged 1.2 FPs in his first 24 games and 1.9 FP in his final 25 games. Using standard deviation as an indicator of consistency, Orlov is relatively inconsistent capable of very high highs and equally low lows. Our projected ceiling for Orlov when he 'goes off' is 16 fantasy points (his average is 1.3FPs).

    DOWNWARD STATISTICAL CAREER TREND

    He is getting less productive when, based on age, he should be reaching his peak. His average Fantasy points have dropped by 32% over this time frame.

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    He has averaged 3.8 fantasy points per week and had 14 weeks where he came up short (below 80% of average) and had 8 weeks where he was +20% above average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    He averaged 7.1 FD points and 2 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. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 3.5 and 13.3 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.
