Little DraftKings Projection Provides Play and Fade Advice


Projected for 5.2 FanDuel pts Jamie Oleksiak is the #18 ranked defenseman. He is the #14 highest priced defenseman ($3500). Based on the projection, Oleksiak is worth $2.8K. There are 6 other options at $3500 (Michael Stone, Ben Lovejoy, Martin Marincin, Dante Fabbro, Oscar Fantenberg, Calle Rosen) and Oleksiak is ranked #5 among the 7. Based on salary, he is expected to have 6.4 FPs, a value reached in 19 of 57 games (33%). The combined ‘cover percentage’ for defensemen priced at $4.0K and above is 48%.

4/13 VEGAS LINE EXPECTATION: DAL 2.3 (#8 Most Today) @ NSH 2.7 (#5 Most)PROJECTION (POS RANK): 5.14 Fantasy Points (#38), 0.18 points (#32), 0.06 goals (#24), 0.12 assists (#33), 0.93 shots on goal (#36), 0.9 PIM (#4 most), 1.24 blocked shots (#25)

DRAFTKINGS VALUE: Oleksiak is overrated on DraftKings with a projected 1.5 DK pts (#25 among defensemen). He is the #23 highest priced defenseman ($2500). At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $2.4K (expected pts per $ is calculated daily based on the average of healthy starters). There are 4 other options at $2500 (Martin Marincin, Dante Fabbro, Oscar Fantenberg, Jonas Siegenthaler) and Oleksiak is ranked #4 among the 5. Based on salary, he is expected to have 1.6 FPs, a value reached in 19 of 57 games (33%). The combined ‘cover percentage’ for defenseman priced at $4.0K and above is 41%.

Oleksiak 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.


He is the #475 ranked fantasy skater this season and the #132 defender. His defender ranking drops to #134 when basing it on average fantasy points. He peaked early in the season. He averaged 2.8 FPs in his first 18 games and 0.2 FP in his final 19 games. His fantasy production is more volatile that most players based on having a relatively high standard deviation. When he is good, he is really good but when he is off, he is really off. Our projected ceiling for Oleksiak when he ‘goes off’ is 15 fantasy points (his average is 1.1FPs).

His FanDuel average was 5.4 points and on DraftKings it was 1.5 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. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 3 and 11.2 on FanDuel. 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.
