Cam Ward's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Based on ownership percentage (15%), Cam Ward has a market rank of #48 among goalies. Our projections indicate that Cam Ward is underrated by the market. His fantasy goalie projection rank is #36. There could be an opportunity to acquire him while the market is still not as high on them as the projections are. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better goalie option available. He is projected for 19 fantasy points in 3 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #19 highest average. The market ranks Cam Ward behind Demko and above Copley but the projections rank these players in reverse order.

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

Based on save percentage he 'should be' a better fantasy goalie, but this projection only assumes he starts 33% of remaining games.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

When compared to other goalies in week 26, Jake Allen (5.4 FP), Anton Khudobin (4.4 FP), Curtis McElhinney (4 FP), Thomas Greiss (5.5 FP), and Brian Elliott (5.3 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Ward but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 3% of leagues he is expected to produce 5.7 fantasy points (WK 26). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #49 goalie of week 26. He is projected to be better than that (the #38 goalie). His per game projected FP average is 6.3 which is better than his actual per game average (2.1).

He is projected for 6.59 fantasy points in week 26 (#38 G) in 1 1 game.


  • Based on 3/19 start percentages, Cam Ward is valued behind Korpisalo and above Copley but the projections rank these players in reverse order in week 26.
  • Cam Ward last five game log with fantasy points (CBS, FD, DK) and statline.

    Ward is not in the 3/19 DFS player pool, but one player who is in the Sportsline projection model optimal lineup for both FanDuel and DraftKings is Frederik Andersen.

    SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

    He was the number #42 ranked goalie. His goalie ranking drops to #46 when basing it on average fantasy points. We split his 30 games into 3 segments (start, middle, and end). He was trending up for the season. In his first 9 games he averaged 4.2 FPs. He improved to 6.9 in his final 10 games. Using standard deviation as an indicator of consistency, Ward is relatively inconsistent capable of very high highs and equally low lows. He averaged 4.8 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 12 fantasy points.

    CURRENT CAREER TREND AND STATISTICS

    The table below shows his relatively steady fantasy production over the past 3 seasons, which is a good sign given his advancing age.

    He has averaged 8.1 fantasy points per week and had 9 weeks where he exceeded that by 20% and 8 'bad' weeks where he came up 20% short of his average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    He averaged 15.5 FD points and 3.9 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. On DraftKings his floor was -0.8 and on FanDuel it was -3.2 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 7.8 and 31.2 on FanDuel.
