Jon Lester's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Jon Lester was scratched from his scheduled start against the Giants yesterday with an illness. My guess is he is expected to make his next start, unless this illness persists into next week.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Jon Lester to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 15.77 projected fantasy points puts him at #38 behind Sean Manaea and ahead of Michael Pineda. He has averaged 1.56 fantasy points in his past 58 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 2.25 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#45) 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 94%, he is the #42 most highly owned starting pitcher. Jon Lester is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #87 fantasy position rank.

FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND ACTUAL STATS

The tables below show projected stats (totals and averages) for the rest of the season and upcoming weeks. Also included are actual stats from the current and last season.
