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.


LaMarcus Aldridge is the #20 ranked fantasy player this season and the #4 power forward. His elite ranking is helped by his higher games played (82). Based on average fantasy points he is the #5 power forward. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 27 games he averaged 37.9 fantasy points which was higher than his start (32.3 FP) and his ending average (35.6 FP). A late season drop-off might be expected given his age. Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Aldridge can be considered a consistent fantasy player. Our projected ceiling for Aldridge when he 'goes off' is 72 fantasy points (his average is 35.3FPs) with a floor of 14 points.

He averaged 37.9 FD points and 39.8 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. On DraftKings his floor was 23.8 and on FanDuel it was 22.5 fantasy points. He did not have a high ceiling (less than +50% over average). On Draftkings it was 55.8 and on FanDuel it was 54.5 FPs. 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.
