Sean Walker's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Based on ownership percentage (under 1%) and season fantasy rankings, Sean Walker has a market rank of #203 among defensemen. He is projected to be the #127 defenseman. 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 6 fantasy points in 9 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#141) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Sean Walker behind Marincin and above Simek but the projections rank Sean Walker over Marincin.

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

He has a relatively high shooting percentage.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

When compared to other defensemen in week 26 these are 5 better options at lower start percentages: Luke Schenn (2.8 FP), Brian Lashoff (2.7 FP), Justin Holl (4 FP), Guillaume Brisebois (2.7 FP), and Connor Clifton (2.4 FP). Mark Pysyk (1.5 FP), Deryk Engelland (1.5 FP), Niklas Hjalmarsson (1.5 FP), Erik Johnson (1.7 FP), and Nikita Zadorov (1.5 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Walker but are starting in more leagues. He is starting in no leagues and with a projected defenseman rank of #150 in week 26 it makes sense.

He is projected for 2 fantasy points in week 26 (#151 D) in 4 games.


  • Based on 3/23 start percentages, Sean Walker is valued behind Folin and above Dahlstrom but the projections rank Sean Walker over Folin in week 26.
  • Sean Walker last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    DAILY FANTASY VALUE

    FANDUEL VALUE (3/23): Projected for 6.7 FanDuel pts Sean Walker is the #77 ranked defenseman. At $3500 he is expected to be the #84 defenseman. Based on the projection, Walker is worth $3.3K. Torey Krug (6.5 FP), Niklas Kronwall (6.7 FP), Nathan Beaulieu (3.3 FP), Braydon Coburn (5.9 FP), and Martin Marincin (2.9 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Walker but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 7.1 FPs, a value reached in 11 of 33 games (33%). The combined 'cover percentage' for defensemen priced at $4.0K and above is 43%.

    DRAFTKINGS VALUE: Projected for 1.9 DraftKings pts Sean Walker is the #81 ranked defenseman. At $3000 he is expected to be the #85 defenseman. Using our calculation of expected points per dollar, Walker is worth $3K. There are many other options (10) at $3000 and Walker is ranked #6 among the 11. Instead of Walker consider these better options at lower salaries: Nick Holden (2 FP), Marco Scandella (2 FP), Michael Del Zotto (2.1 FP), Calvin de Haan (2 FP), and Brad Hunt (2.1 FP). Torey Krug (1.8 FP), Ben Lovejoy (1.9 FP), Chris Tanev (1.1 FP), Colin Miller (1.5 FP), and Brett Kulak (1.9 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Walker but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 1.9 FPs, a value reached in 11 of 33 games (33%). The combined 'cover percentage' for defenseman priced at $4.0K and above is 39%.

    Walker 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 #189 ranked defender and the #604 ranked skater overall. His value would have been higher if he had played more games. Based on average fantasy points he was the #159 defender. We split his 33 games into 3 segments (start, middle, and end). He steadily increased his fantasy average as the season went on. He averaged 0 FPs in his first 10 games, 1 fantasy points in his next 10 and 1.6 FP after that. Given his youth, he should be able to continue showing improvement next season. Using standard deviation as an indicator of consistency, Walker is relatively inconsistent capable of very high highs and equally low lows. Our projected ceiling for Walker when he 'goes off' is 6 fantasy points (his average is 0.9FPs).

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    He has averaged 2 fantasy points per week and had 10 weeks where he came up short (below 80% of average) and had 5 weeks where he was +20% above average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    He averaged 6.5 FD points and 1.8 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. 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.
