Nick Anderson's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

The former NAIA pitcher made his debut last season and struck out 110 batters in 65 IP between the Marlins and Rays. Anderson was particularly impressive following his trade to Tampa, where he had a 2.11 ERA and 41 Ks to just 2 BBS in 21.1 IP. The Rays have mixed and matched relievers in the closing role, but Anderson should get an opportunity to be the full time closer after the Rays traded Emilio Pagan. If Anderson is the true closer, he should have great value next season.

DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK

Draft Nick Anderson as a weekly fantasy starter in 2019-2020. His 278.62 projected fantasy points puts him at #8 behind Edwin Diaz and ahead of Brandon Workman. He has averaged 0.67 fantasy points in his past 68 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 3.96 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#14) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. Nick Anderson is expected to improve on last season's #45 fantasy position rank.

NICK ANDERSON WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Nick Anderson is projected for 6.31 fantasy points in one game the rest of the week which is good enough to be the #12 ranked reliever and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average game with more fantasy points than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above Edwin Diaz but behind Archie Bradley the rest of the week. Week 2 is projected to be slightly better based on projected rank (#11). He is projected for 9.89 fantasy points.
