As you may have noticed we have transformed Scout into a data and stats driven service geared towards helping invested fans make the right decisions on a daily basis. This is our new Fantasy Scouting Report that we produce for each fantasy relevant player. We treat them like a stock and report their value in season long fantasy, the current fantasy week, and if applicable, on FanDuel and on DraftKings. We establish what is expected of the player based on fantasy ownership %, start %, and DFS Salary and see if our proprietary forecasting model projects a better or worse than expected performance. For complete recaps of the best and worst values for each market (season, weekly, daily), injury reports and team outlooks be sure to check out the new Scout.

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Kevin Durant is the number #2 ranked small forward and the #7 ranked player overall. His elite ranking is helped by his higher games played (79). Based on average fantasy points he is the #3 small forward. He peaked early in the season. He averaged 49.1 FPs in his first 26 games and 38.3 FP in his final 27 games. His fantasy production is stable and he is not as volatile as most players based on a below average standard deviation. Our projected ceiling for Durant when he 'goes off' is 73 fantasy points (his average is 42.9FPs) with a floor of 20 points.

SportsLine has the best NBA picks and Daily Fantasy Lineups. In the off-season check out our coverage of all major leagues (NFL, MLB, NHL, Horses, NASCAR, and Golf).
