Yu Darvish's Fantasy Scouting Report

SHORT TERM FANTASY OUTLOOK AND WEEKLY RANKINGS

Yu Darvish is projected for 3.31 fantasy points in 2 games which is good enough to be the #29 ranked starting pitcher 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 Luis Castillo but behind Eduardo Rodriguez. Week 4 will not be as good based on projected rank (#58). He is projected for 1.81 fantasy points.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

His 35.43 projected fantasy points puts him at #65 behind Eduardo Rodriguez and ahead of Joe Musgrove. He has averaged 1.36 fantasy points in his past 31 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 1.26 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#68) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 95%, he is the #23 most highly owned starting pitcher.
