Devin Booker'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.


Devin Booker is projected to be the #10 rated player of 21 guards who are owned in 100% of leagues. His market rank among all guards is #19 but that rank is clearly impacted by the significant time he missed. Our projections show his value is rising. He is projected for 865 fantasy points in 24 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #9 highest average. The market ranks Devin Booker behind McCollum and above Lowry but the projections rank Devin Booker over McCollum. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly lower in 5 categories than his overall fantasy point ranking and these are relative weaknesses. Scoring is his strength but he has areas he could improve on to become a more well-rounded fantasy guard.

He is projected to be better than that (the #7 guard). His per game projected FP average is 37.3 which is better than his actual per game average (29.2).
