Kenley Jansen's Rest of Season Value is Surprising

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.


Both the market and projections have virtually the same expectations for Kenley Jansen. Based on ownership percentage (97%), Kenley Jansen has a market rank of #2 among relievers. Projections rank him #1. Of the 5 relievers (Aroldis Chapman, Brad Hand, Kirby Yates, Josh Hader) with this market rank (97% Owned), he is the top rated one. He is projected for 154 fantasy points in 28 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#3) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Kenley Jansen behind Chapman and above Yates but the projections rank Kenley Jansen over Chapman.
