Vrana 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 Jakub Vrana is a good value the rest of the week. He has a market rank of #38 while his projection rank (rest of week 25) is #19. When compared to other left wings in week 26 these are 5 better options at lower start percentages: Jamie McGinn (4.5 FP), Micheal Ferland (7.1 FP), Brandon Saad (5 FP), Brandon Pirri (4.7 FP), and Thomas Vanek (6.2 FP). He is projected for more points than 3 other left wings starting in more leagues: Jaden Schwartz (4.3 FP), Tyler Johnson (4.1 FP), and Yanni Gourde (4.2 FP). Starting in 34% of leagues he is expected to produce 5.5 fantasy points (WK 26). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #33 left wing of the week, but he is projected to be the #52 left wing. In terms of total fantasy points he projected to come up 1.2 short of expectations. His per game projected FP average is 1.5 which is less than his actual per game average (1.8).

He is projected for 4.32 fantasy points in week 26 (#52 LW) in 3 games.

    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    Both the market and projections have virtually the same expectations for Jakub Vrana. Based on ownership percentage (51%), Jakub Vrana has a market rank of #38 among left wings. Projections rank him #39. Ryan Dzingel has virtually the same market rank (51% Owned) and is projected for more points than Vrana. He is projected for 16 fantasy points in 10 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#44) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Jakub Vrana behind Marleau and above Dzingel but the projections rank Dzingel over Jakub Vrana.

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

    SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

    Jakub Vrana had a decent season as a solid fantasy starter. He was the #162 ranked fantasy skater this season and the #48 wing. His value was boosted by staying healthy (72 GP). Based on average fantasy points he is the #65 wing. Vrana did not show a clear upward or downward trend as the season progressed. He averaged 2 FPs in his first 23 games, 1.5 in the middle of his season and 2.1 in his final 2.1 games. His standard deviation divided by his average is 1.55 which is close to the league ratio. He averaged 1.8 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 11 fantasy points.

    STATISTICAL IMPROVEMENT OVER LAST SEASON

    He has demonstrated the solid year-to-year improvement that you look for in a younger player. His fantasy average improved by 80%.

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    He has averaged 5.5 fantasy points per week and had 10 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 10 points and on DraftKings it was 2.7 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 5 and 20 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.
