Sanchez Projected to Average 3.1 FPs (#1 C) And Meet Expectations

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 the exact same expectations for Gary Sanchez. Ranking by ownership percentage (100%) and fantasy rankings, Gary Sanchez is expected to be the #1 catcher for the rest of the season. Projections also rank him #1. He is projected for 179 fantasy points in 58 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#3) based on projected fantasy average. The market values Gary Sanchez over Contreras and the projections agree.

    His FanDuel average was 12.7 points and on DraftKings it was 9.6 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 20 and on FanDuel it was 29.2 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.
