Willians Astudillo's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Most already consider Willians Astudillo to be a good starting catcher, but the projections indicate he is an elite fantasy option. As of 3/22, Willians Astudillo is the #13 ranked catcher based on ownership percentage (64%). He is projected to be the #9 catcher. Even as an established quality fantasy option, if he lives up to projections he is still undervalued and there could be an opportunity to buy 'low'. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better catcher option available. He is projected for 304 fantasy points in 112 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#10) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Willians Astudillo behind Narvaez and above Zunino but the projections rank Willians Astudillo over Narvaez.
