Daily Fantasy Projection: Mookie Betts


Betts is not the best option on DraftKings with a projected 9.7 DK pts (#12 among outfielders). He is the #5 highest priced outfielder ($5300). Using our calculation of expected points per dollar, Betts is worth $5.4K. Domingo Santana is also priced at $5300, and Betts is a better option at this price. These are 5 better options at lower salaries: Michael Brantley (10.4 FP), Joc Pederson (9.9 FP), George Springer (11.1 FP), Joey Gallo (9.8 FP), and Mallex Smith (10.1 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 9.6 FPs, a value reached in 106 of 229 games (46%). The combined 'cover percentage' for outfielders expected to start is 39%.

Betts 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.


Mookie Betts is a bad value the rest of the week. He has a market rank of #5 while his projection (rest of week 14) rank is #54. Based on start%, Acuna is expected to produce more fantasy points than Mookie Betts but the projections say otherwise. Mookie Betts should put up more fantasy points than Blackmon who is ranked 1 spot below him based on start%. Starting in all virtually all leagues he is expected to produce 21 fantasy points (WK 15). Week 15 market expectations match his projection. He is expected to be the #4 outfielder (projected to be #3).

He is projected for 24 fantasy points in week 15 (#3 OF) in 6 games.
