Draft Merrill Kelly as a weekly fantasy starter in 2019-2020. His 52.8 projected fantasy points puts him at #56 behind Luke Weaver and ahead of Joey Lucchesi. He has averaged -0.12 fantasy points in his past 32 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 1.83 fantasy points. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 55%, he is the #87 most highly owned starting pitcher.

This is projected to be a below average game with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above Matt Boyd but behind Max Fried the rest of the week. Week 2 will not be as good based on projected rank (#64). He is projected for 1.44 fantasy points.
