Austin Wagner's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON VALUE

As of 3/23, Austin Wagner is the #131 ranked left wing based on ownership percentage (under 1%) and season fantasy rankings. His projection based left wing rank is #95. While there is value and likely a clear opportunity to acquire him via trade or waiver wire pick up it is probably not worth the roster spot at this time. He is projected for 7 fantasy points in 9 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#108) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Austin Wagner behind Quine and above Carpenter but the projections rank Austin Wagner over Quine.

Make sure to visit Sportsline for DFS and betting advice. We have picks on every game and line.

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

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

When compared to other left wings in week 26 these are 5 better options at lower start percentages: Eric Tangradi (3.2 FP), Alan Quine (3.4 FP), Adam Johnson (5.5 FP), Eric Robinson (2.7 FP), and Joseph Gambardella (3.7 FP). Andrew Cogliano (2 FP), Tyler Ennis (2 FP), Marcus Foligno (2.1 FP), Colin Wilson (1.8 FP), and Matt Martin (1.4 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Wagner but are starting in more leagues. He is starting in no leagues and with a projected left wing rank of #102 in week 26 it makes sense.

He is projected for 2.59 fantasy points in week 26 (#103 LW) in 4 games.

    DAILY FANTASY VALUE

    FANDUEL VALUE (3/23): Projected for 5.4 FanDuel pts Austin Wagner is the #139 ranked wing. At $3100 he is expected to be the #149 wing. At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $2.6K. There are many other options (10) at $3100 and Wagner is ranked #5 among the 11. Instead of Wagner consider these better options at lower salaries: Colton Sceviour (8 FP), Rocco Grimaldi (6 FP), Ryan Callahan (6.3 FP), William Carrier (5.7 FP), and Ryan Carpenter (6.5 FP). Ryan Spooner (2.9 FP), Tyler Ennis (3.9 FP), Marcus Foligno (5.2 FP), Joakim Nordstrom (5.3 FP), and Cody McLeod (1.1 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Wagner but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 6.3 FPs, a value reached in 14 of 53 games (26%). The combined 'cover percentage' for wings priced at $4.0K and above is 40%.

    DRAFTKINGS VALUE: Austin Wagner is underrated on DraftKings with a projected 1.5 DK pts (#73 among left wings). He is the #76 highest priced left wing ($2500). Using the salaries and projected points for healthy players in in today's pool to calculate expected points per dollar, Wagner is worth $2.3K. There are many other options (19) at $2500 and Wagner is ranked #5 among the 20. Based on salary, he is expected to have 1.6 FPs, a value reached in 14 of 53 games (26%). The combined 'cover percentage' for left wing priced at $4.0K and above is 39%.

    Wagner 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

    He was the number #198 ranked wing and the #514 ranked skater overall. His wing ranking drops to #205 when basing it on average fantasy points. He trended up as the season went on. In his first 17 games he averaged 0.2 FPs. He improved to 1.1 in the next 18 games. In his final stretch of games he improved to 1.4 per game. Given his youth, he should be able to continue showing improvement next season. Using standard deviation as an indicator of consistency, Wagner is relatively inconsistent capable of very high highs and equally low lows. Our projected ceiling for Wagner when he 'goes off' is 8 fantasy points (his average is 0.9FPs).

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    He has averaged 2.2 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 5.7 points and on DraftKings it was 1.5 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 2.5 and 9.6 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.
