DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK
Based on our latest pre-season projection, you can expect Nelson Cruz will be an elite fantasy starter. His 566.12 projected fantasy points puts him ahead of Freddie Freeman making him our #1 ranked first baseman. He has averaged 3.98 fantasy points in his past 120 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 3.88 fantasy points. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 98%, he is the #10 most highly owned first baseman. Nelson Cruz is expected to improve on last season's #10 fantasy position rank.
