As you may have noticed we have transformed Scout into a data and stats driven service geared towards helping invested fans make the right decisions on a daily basis. This is our new Fantasy Scouting Report that we produce for each fantasy relevant player. We treat them like a stock and report their value in season long fantasy, the current fantasy week, and if applicable, on FanDuel and on DraftKings. We establish what is expected of the player based on fantasy ownership %, start %, and DFS Salary and see if our proprietary forecasting model projects a better or worse than expected performance. For complete recaps of the best and worst values for each market (season, weekly, daily), injury reports and team outlooks be sure to check out the new Scout.
REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK
Expect Cody Bellinger to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 79.54 projected fantasy points puts him at #6 behind Anthony Rizzo and ahead of Freddie Freeman. He has averaged 3.34 fantasy points in his past 293 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 3.81 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#2) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite first baseman. He is projected to be very good, but not one of the very best at his position. Cody Bellinger is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #1 fantasy position rank.

WEEK 24 AND 25 FANTASY OUTLOOK
Cody Bellinger is projected for 21.63 fantasy points in 6 games which is good enough to be the #3 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 Shin-Soo Choo but behind Carlos Santana. Week 25 will be slightly worse based on projected rank (#4). He is projected for 21.51 fantasy points.
CODY BELLINGER IS JUST THE #2 OF ON FANDUEL BUT IS THE #1 HIGHEST PRICED ON 9/2
Below are how he ranks on FanDuel. Look for players with comparable or more fantasy points at a lower or same salary.
