Carey Price's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY VALUE

Projected for 11.9 FanDuel pts Carey Price is the #24 ranked goalie. He is the #2 highest priced goalie ($9000). Using our calculation of expected points per dollar, Price is worth $5.8K. These are 5 better options at lower salaries: Frederik Andersen (13.6 FP), Robin Lehner (15.4 FP), Petr Mrazek (19.3 FP), Devan Dubnyk (16.1 FP), and Cory Schneider (16.1 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 18.5 FPs, a value reached in 31 of 75 games (41%). The combined 'cover percentage' for goalies priced at $4.0K and above is 36%.

  • 4/4 VEGAS LINE EXPECTATION: MON 2.8 (#15 Most Today) @ WAS 3.2 (#9 Most)
  • PROJECTION (POS RANK): 11.76 Fantasy Points (#24), 0.31 wins (#23), 0.65 losses (#2 most), 26.92 saves (#16), 3.42 goals allowed (#2 most), 88.7 save percentage (#23)

DRAFTKINGS VALUE: Based on a projected 3 DraftKings points Price is fairly ranked. He is the #24 highest priced goalie ($7200). At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $5.4K. Darcy Kuemper is also priced at $7200 and is a better option at this price. Instead of Price consider these better options at lower salaries: Cory Schneider (4 FP), Jimmy Howard (3.7 FP), Brian Elliott (4.1 FP), Jacob Markstrom (4.6 FP), and Samuel Montembeault (4 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 3.9 FPs, a value reached in 37 of 75 games (49%). The combined 'cover percentage' for goalie priced at $4.0K and above is 36%.

Price 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.

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Carey Price is the number #2 ranked goalie. His elite ranking was helped by his higher games played (65). Based on average fantasy points he is the #19 goalie. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 22 games he averaged 7.1 fantasy points which was higher than his start (4.6 FP) and his ending average (5.9 FP). His standard deviation divided by his average is 0.72 which is close to the league ratio. Our projected ceiling for Price when he 'goes off' is 15 fantasy points (his average is 5.9FPs).

STATISTICAL IMPROVEMENT OVER LAST SEASON

Price may be getting older but he did get better this season. His fantasy average improved by 44%.

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 14.8 fantasy points per week and had 12 weeks where he came up short (below 80% of average) and had 11 weeks where he was +20% above average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

He averaged 18.9 FD points and 4.7 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. On DraftKings his floor was 0.6 and on FanDuel it was 2.4 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 8.8 and 35.2 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.
