Jaccob Slavin's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY VALUE

There are 6 other options at $3800 (Niklas Kronwall, Jonas Brodin, Ben Chiarot, Mike Reilly, MacKenzie Weegar, Vince Dunn) and Slavin is the best option of these 7. Jeff Petry (12.3 FP) is projected for more points at a lower salary. Cam Fowler (9.6 FP), Hampus Lindholm (9.7 FP), Torey Krug (6.5 FP), Ron Hainsey (7.6 FP), and T.J. Brodie (8.4 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Slavin but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 7.7 FPs, a value reached in 33 of 73 games (45%). The combined 'cover percentage' for defensemen priced at $4.0K and above is 43%.

  • 3/23 VEGAS LINE EXPECTATION: CAR 2.9 (#15 Most Today) vs MIN 2.6 (#25 Most)
  • PROJECTION (POS RANK): 9.88 Fantasy Points (#29), 0.42 points (#37), 0.1 goals (#37), 0.32 assists (#36), 2.17 shots on goal (#21), 0.2 PIM (#111 most), 1.63 blocked shots (#51)

DRAFTKINGS VALUE: Projected for 2.8 DraftKings pts Jaccob Slavin is the #29 ranked defenseman. He is the #49 highest priced defenseman ($4000). At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $4.4K (expected pts per $ is calculated daily based on the average of healthy starters). Zach Bogosian is also priced at $4000, and Slavin is a better option at this price. Cam Fowler (2.7 FP), Hampus Lindholm (2.8 FP), Torey Krug (1.8 FP), Justin Schultz (2.7 FP), and Travis Hamonic (2.7 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Slavin but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 2.6 FPs, a value reached in 26 of 73 games (36%). The combined 'cover percentage' for defenseman priced at $4.0K and above is 39%.

Slavin 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.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

If you are in a league that allows for substitutions during the week, Jaccob Slavin could be someone to consider. He is projected to be the #17 defenseman the rest of week 25 and he is only starting in 22% of leagues. When compared to other defensemen in week 26 instead of Slavin consider these better options at lower start percentages: Joe Morrow (3.5 FP), Ron Hainsey (3.6 FP), David Savard (3.5 FP), Niklas Kronwall (4 FP), and Marco Scandella (4.2 FP). Cam Fowler (2.1 FP), Hampus Lindholm (2.4 FP), Brent Seabrook (3.3 FP), Matt Niskanen (2.9 FP), and Colin Miller (2.6 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Slavin but are starting in more leagues. He is starting in just 22% of leagues and with a projected defenseman rank of #83 in week 26 it makes sense that he is not starting in many leagues. His per game projected FP average is 0.8 which is less than his actual per game average (1.4).

He is projected for 3.32 fantasy points in week 26 (#84 D) in 4 games.


  • Based on 3/23 start percentages, Jaccob Slavin is valued behind Karlsson and above Leddy and the projections agree for this week.
  • Jaccob Slavin last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    His latest projection based rank among defensemen is #66. Based on ownership percentage (38%), Jaccob Slavin has a market rank of #69 among defensemen. Our projections indicate that Jaccob Slavin is underrated by the market. Anthony DeAngelo has virtually the same market rank (38% Owned) and is projected for more points than Slavin. He is projected for 9 fantasy points in 9 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#88) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Jaccob Slavin behind Seabrook and above DeAngelo but the projections rank DeAngelo over Jaccob Slavin.

    His rank in goals is better than his SOG rank indicating a relatively high shooting %.

    SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

    Jaccob Slavin had a decent season as a solid fantasy starter. He was the number #60 ranked defender and the #248 ranked skater overall. His value was boosted by staying healthy (73 GP). Based on average fantasy points he is the #84 defender. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 24 games he averaged 1.9 fantasy points which was higher than his start (0.8 FP) and his ending average (1.4 FP). He is still relatively young, so his late season drop-off should not be an indicator of an overall downward trend heading into next season. 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 Slavin when he 'goes off' is 10 fantasy points (his average is 1.4FPs).

    CURRENT CAREER TREND AND STATISTICS

    His per game fantasy average is down 18 percent from two seasons ago.

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    He has averaged 4.1 fantasy points per week and had 13 weeks where he came up short (below 80% of average) and had 10 weeks where he was +20% above average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    He averaged 8.5 FD points and 2.5 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. He had a relatively high ceiling. On Draftkings it was 4 and on FanDuel it was 19.2 FPs. 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.
