Josh Bell's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND PLAY OR FADE ADVICE

He is projected for 13.3 FanDuel points and 9.8 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is worth +$1035 more than $4.1K on FanDuel and +$823 more than $4.9K on DraftKings. Their may be other options (see below) who are even better values, but barring a significant lineup change consider him a strong daily fantasy play. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Josh Bell to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 207.38 projected fantasy points puts him at #6 behind Nelson Cruz and ahead of Pete Alonso. He has averaged 3.1 fantasy points in his past 242 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 3.46 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#5) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 100%, he is the #8 most highly owned first baseman. Josh Bell is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #2 fantasy position rank.

WEEK 17 AND 18 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Josh Bell is projected for 11.36 fantasy points in 3 games the rest of week which is good enough to be the #2 ranked first baseman and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points per game than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above Edwin Encarnacion but behind J.D. Martinez the rest of the week. Week 18 will be slightly worse based on projected rank (#4). He is projected for 21.42 fantasy points.
