WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

Week 5 starting pitchers comparisons show Blake Snell (6.6 FP) is projected for more points and is starting in fewer leagues. Zack Greinke (4.7 FP), Cole Hamels (2.5 FP), Justin Verlander (5.8 FP), Clayton Kershaw (5.1 FP), and Carlos Carrasco (6.2 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Happ but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 60% of leagues he is expected to produce 2.6 fantasy points (WK 5). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #44 starting pitcher of week 5. He is projected to be better than that (the #8 starting pitcher). His per game projected FP average is 3.2 which is better than his actual per game average (-6.5). In addition to a solid projected FP average, he will benefit from playing a projected 2 games.

He is projected for 6.4 fantasy points in week 5 (#8 SP) in 4 games.
