Javier Baez's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Javier Baez was scratched before yesterday’s game with an illness. He might have been available for a pinch hit appearance, and the illness is not expected to keep him out for long.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Javier Baez to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 71.29 projected fantasy points puts him at #5 behind Yoan Moncada and ahead of Gleyber Torres. He has averaged 3.17 fantasy points in his past 291 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 3.02 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#10) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite second baseman. He is projected to be very good, but not one of the very best at his position. Javier Baez is expected to slightly improve on this season-to-date's #6 fantasy position rank.

PROJECTING A DOWN WEEK 24 FOR JAVIER BAEZ WITH FEWER FPS THAN ROUGNED ODOR

Javier Baez is projected for 17.35 fantasy points in 6 games which is good enough to be the #11 ranked second 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 Joe Wendle but behind Rougned Odor. Week 25 will be better based on projected rank (#5). He is projected for 19.46 fantasy points.

JAVIER BAEZ IS A GREAT DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL ($3.9K) AND DRAFTKINGS ($4.2K) FOR 9/2

He is projected for 11.7 FanDuel points and 8.9 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is worth +$207 more than $3.9K on FanDuel and +$1050 more than $4.2K 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.
