Juuso Riikola's Fantasy Scouting Report

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

He was the number #195 ranked defender and the #625 ranked skater overall. His defender ranking drops to #199 when basing it on average fantasy points. We split his 37 games into 3 segments (start, middle, and end). He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 12 games he averaged 1.3 fantasy points which was higher than his start (0.1 FP) and his ending average (0.8 FP). 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 Riikola when he 'goes off' is 6 fantasy points (his average is 0.7FPs).

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).

WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

He has averaged 1.6 fantasy points per week and had 10 weeks where he came up short (below 80% of average) and had 6 weeks where he was +20% above average.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 4.6 points and on DraftKings it was 1.4 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. 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 and 11.2 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.
