Corey Kluber's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Ranking by ownership percentage (98%), Corey Kluber is expected to be the #14 starting pitcher for the rest of the season. With a lower market rank than projection rank, consider Corey Kluber to be undervalued. His fantasy starting pitcher projection rank is #7. Even if he is owned in plenty of leagues, he is still undervalued and if you act quickly there is a clear buy low opportunity. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better starting pitcher option available. Of the 21 98% owned starting pitchers, he is ranked #7. He is projected for 134 fantasy points in 28 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#11) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Corey Kluber behind Buehler and above Tanaka but the projections rank Corey Kluber over Buehler.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

Corey Kluber is a bad value the rest of the week. He has a market rank of #14 while his projection (rest of week 5) rank is #38. In week 6 rankings vs other starting pitchers these are 4 better options at lower start percentages: Jacob deGrom (7.3 FP), Blake Snell (13.5 FP), Kenta Maeda (8.6 FP), and Luis Castillo (7.5 FP). Zack Greinke (2.5 FP), Cole Hamels (3.2 FP), Clayton Kershaw (6.1 FP), Stephen Strasburg (2.7 FP), and Chris Sale (5.9 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Kluber but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 86% of leagues he is expected to produce 5.3 fantasy points (WK 6). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #15 starting pitcher of week 6. He is projected to be better than that (the #9 starting pitcher). His per game projected FP average is 6.7 which is better than his actual per game average (-2.1).

He is projected for 6.7 fantasy points in week 6 (#9 SP) in 2 games.
