Even though his per game projected FP average is not better than normal, he will benefit from playing a projected 6 games.

He is projected for 19.3 fantasy points in week 5 (#2 SS) in 6 games.

    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    The projections say that Tim Anderson is an even better fantasy option than the market indicates. He is an elite shortstop worth starting most weeks. Ranking by ownership percentage (94%), Tim Anderson is expected to be the #12 shortstop for the rest of the season. He is projected to be the #5 shortstop. Even if he is owned in plenty of leagues, he is still undervalued and if you act quickly there is a clear buy low opportunity. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better shortstop option available. He is projected for more FPs than Jurickson Profar who has virtually the same market rank (94% Owned) as Anderson. He is projected for 395 fantasy points in 132 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#7) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Tim Anderson behind Tatis Jr. and above Profar but the projections rank Tim Anderson over Tatis Jr..

    He has more relative strengths than weaknesses which makes him a better value in leagues that score based on production in individual categories.
