Jason Heyward's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Jason Heyward was scratched from yesterday’s lineup with pain in his knee. He is listed as day-to-day and an IL stint is not expected. Tony Kemp took his spot in the starting lineup, he is not worth a look in fantasy.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

According to our projection, you can expect Jason Heyward to be a bench player or a good option off the waiver wire. His 57.8 projected fantasy points puts him at #50 behind Gerardo Parra and ahead of Alex Gordon. He has averaged 2.53 fantasy points in his past 249 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 2.75 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#77) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 51%, he is the #57 most highly owned outfielder. Jason Heyward is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #33 fantasy position rank.

SIT JASON HEYWARD IN WEEK 24... PROJECTED FOR FEWER FPS THAN BRETT GARDNER

Jason Heyward is projected for 13.94 fantasy points in 5 games which projects to being the #60 ranked outfielder. This may be a week you want to sit Jason Heyward. 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 Victor Reyes but behind Brett Gardner. Week 25 will be better based on projected rank (#45). He is projected for 15.32 fantasy points.

JASON HEYWARD IS A GREAT DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL ($2.8K) AND DRAFTKINGS ($3.5K) FOR 9/2

He is projected for 9 FanDuel points and 7 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is worth +$172 more than $2.8K on FanDuel and +$523 more than $3.5K on DraftKings. Their may be other options (see below) who are even better values, but barring a significant lineup change consider him a strong daily fantasy play. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
