kirkdiese: NBA CVR Champion for 2018-2019

The Consensus Value Rankings feature is one of the most useful and popular on RotoGrinders each and every season. We line up a selection of DFS analysts to give their rankings of the best values on each DFS site, and rate their performance each day as compared to their peers. When your competition includes beasts like meansy53, squirrelpatrol, Notorious, Dean78904, and more… it’s worth celebrating when you finish a full season at the top of the rankings.

That is why we need to tip our caps to the 2018/2019 Consensus Value Rankings champion, kirkdiese (Chris Kirkwood). He was able to edge out his daily opponents on both DraftKings and FanDuel over the course of the NBA season.

Crushing everyone is nothing new for Mr. Kirkwood, and his accuracy has translated well from the rankings over to his DFS outcomes. Take a look at some key data from our rankings this year:

— Ranked #31 Overall in May
— Ranked #92 Overall in the TPOY race
— Ranked #38 on the MLB leaderboard
— Seven of his Top 11 career TPOY points finishes have come in 2019

Chris was so dominant in his performance, that we actually discovered an incredible new way to make the ranking system even better, starting with MLB 2019. We’re looking forward to seeing if kirkdiese can smash his MLB opponents in the same way as his DFS and NBA CVR opponents this summer.
