Alex Ovechkin's Fantasy Scouting Report

As you may have noticed we have transformed Scout into a data and stats driven service geared towards helping invested fans make the right decisions on a daily basis. This is our new Fantasy Scouting Report that we produce for each fantasy relevant player. We treat them like a stock and report their value in season long fantasy, the current fantasy week, and if applicable, on FanDuel and on DraftKings. We establish what is expected of the player based on fantasy ownership %, start %, and DFS Salary and see if our proprietary forecasting model projects a better or worse than expected performance. For complete recaps of the best and worst values for each market (season, weekly, daily), injury reports and team outlooks be sure to check out the new Scout.

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Alex Ovechkin is the #35 ranked fantasy skater this season and the #7 wing. His elite ranking was helped by his higher games played (81). Based on average fantasy points he is the #8 wing. He peaked early in the season. He averaged 3.8 FPs in his first 26 games and 2.9 FP in his final 27 games. A fast start and slow end is somewhat expected given his age. His fantasy production is stable and he is not as volatile as most players based on a below average standard deviation. He averaged 3.2 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 13 fantasy points.

SportsLine has the best NHL picks and Daily Fantasy Lineups. In the off-season check out our coverage of all major leagues (NFL, MLB, NBA, Horses, NASCAR, and Golf).

CURRENT CAREER TREND AND STATISTICS

His per game fantasy average is up 28 percent from two seasons ago.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 9.7 fantasy points per week and had 12 weeks where he came up short (below 80% of average) and had 9 weeks where he was +20% above average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 19.5 points and on DraftKings it was 5.4 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 9 and 35.7 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.
