Josh Donaldson's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Josh Donaldson to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 485.83 projected fantasy points puts him at #5 behind Jose Ramirez and ahead of Rafael Devers. He has averaged 3.27 fantasy points in his past 155 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 3.44 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 98%, he is the #6 most highly owned third baseman. Josh Donaldson is expected to slightly improve on last season's #6 fantasy position rank.

PROJECTING A DOWN WEEK 3 FOR JOSH DONALDSON WITH FEWER FPS THAN GIOVANNY URSHELA

Josh Donaldson is projected for 19.09 fantasy points in 6 games which is good enough to be the #11 ranked third 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 Vladimir Guerrero Jr. but behind Giovanny Urshela. Week 4 will be better based on projected rank (#7). He is projected for 19.58 fantasy points.
