Bullish or Bearish – A Look at Dexter Fowler

By Matthew Kirkeby - 7 years ago in MLB News

Bullish or Bearish: Dexter Fowler

Dexter Fowler

Buying shares of Dexter Fowler stock in DFS is returning very little profit in 2017.  He is hitting .179, striking out a career high 27% of the time, and walking a career low 6.8% while yielding an ugly 7.62 Fantasy Points Per Game (FPPG).

But at a second glance, you can see that he has a .217 BABIP (Batting Average on Balls in Play), suggesting that his struggles have had some unluckiness to them.  Even if the Ks don’t come down, and his BABIP only gets to .315 (career .340), there will be positive outcomes ahead for Fowler.

He’s slumping so we can only play him if he’s cheap.  If you do decide to play him, let’s play to his strength.  With a career .wOBA of 0.367 against left-handed pitchers (LHPs), I am looking to buy Fowler against most LHPs.  Once he starts hitting, we can reevaluate.

Consider me Bearish on Fowler as a situational value play.
