Meadows is the #18 Most Expensive OF on DraftKings and is Projected to Be...


There are 3 other options at $4600 (Shin-Soo Choo, Giancarlo Stanton, Nick Senzel) and Meadows is the best option of these 4. Instead of Meadows consider these better options at lower salaries: Justin Upton (10.4 FP), Bryce Harper (10.2 FP), Kole Calhoun (10.3 FP), and David Peralta (9.8 FP). Brett Gardner (3.9 FP), Jarrod Dyson (8.4 FP), Marcell Ozuna (8.5 FP), Eddie Rosario (8.5 FP), and Max Kepler (9 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Meadows but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 8.2 FPs, a value reached in 39 of 115 games (34%). The combined 'cover percentage' for outfielders expected to start is 38%.

FANDUEL VALUE: Austin Meadows is underrated on FanDuel with a projected 12.3 FD pts (#9 among outfielders). He is the #15 highest priced outfielder ($3900). Based on the projection, Meadows is worth $4.2K. There are 5 other options at $3900 (Nelson Cruz, Hunter Pence, Justin Upton, Thomas Pham, Eddie Rosario) and Meadows is ranked #3 among the 6. These are 2 better options at lower salaries: Kole Calhoun (13.9 FP) and David Peralta (12.7 FP). Giancarlo Stanton (10.7 FP), Marcell Ozuna (11.4 FP), Max Kepler (12.1 FP), Whit Merrifield (10.6 FP), and Cody Bellinger (11.3 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Meadows but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 11.4 FPs, a value reached in 40 of 115 games (35%). The combined 'cover percentage' for outfielders expected to start is 42%.

Meadows is NOT in the SportsLine DraftKings optimal lineup or the FanDuel optimal lineup which are based on the computer model's projection. 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.


His market rank based on start percentage among outfielders for the rest of week 13 is #11, which is better than his market rank of #15. When compared to other outfielders in week 14 instead of Meadows consider these better options at lower start percentages: Nick Markakis (18.3 FP), Joc Pederson (22.9 FP), George Springer (21.1 FP), and Alex Verdugo (18.9 FP). Michael Brantley (18 FP), Thomas Pham (18.1 FP), Marcell Ozuna (13.3 FP), Mookie Betts (17.4 FP), and Eddie Rosario (15.5 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Meadows but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 88% of leagues he is expected to produce 18.1 fantasy points (WK 14). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #15 outfielder of week 14. He is projected to be better than that (the #12 outfielder).

    His value decreases in leagues where winning specific categories is important because he has more relative weaknesses than strengths.

    He averaged 12.7 FD points and 9.8 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. When he was bad in DFS, he was really bad with a floor of zero points. He had a relatively high ceiling. On DraftKings it was 17 and on FanDuel it was 29.4 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.
