Austin Barnes's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Austin Barnes was optioned over the weekend after his poor start to the season. Catcher Will Smith was called up to fill in as the everyday catcher in his place. He is the Dodgers fourth ranked prospect so he is definitely worth a look in all leagues.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

You can expect Austin Barnes to be a good bench player who will start in certain weeks the rest of the season. His 35.88 projected fantasy points puts him at #40 behind Tony Wolters and ahead of Russell Martin. He has averaged 1.41 fantasy points in his past 163 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 2.24 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#52) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. Austin Barnes is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #35 fantasy position rank.

FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND ACTUAL STATS

The tables below show projected stats (totals and averages) for the rest of the season and upcoming weeks. Also included are actual stats from the current and last season.
