Clayton Kershaw's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Clayton Kershaw to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 146.03 projected fantasy points puts him at #7 behind Justin Verlander and ahead of Max Scherzer. He has averaged 6.1 fantasy points in his past 29 games, which is more than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 5.42 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#5) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 97%, he is the #5 most highly owned starting pitcher. Last season he was also the #7 ranked starting pitcher.

CLAYTON KERSHAW PROJECTED TO FINISH AHEAD OF JACOB DEGROM IN WEEK 3

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 the highest ranked starting pitcher for the week, ahead of Jacob deGrom. Week 4 will not be as good based on projected rank (#5). He is projected for 6.59 fantasy points.
