Oscar Mercado's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND PLAY OR FADE ADVICE

For each platform we calculate a position specific points per dollar and our projection says he is a better value on FanDuel than on DraftKings. He is projected for 11.2 FD points and is worth +$529 more than $3.2K on FD. On DK he is projected for 8.5 points and is worth +$178 more than $4.7K. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Oscar Mercado to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 83.28 projected fantasy points puts him at #30 behind Eloy Jimenez and ahead of Andrew Benintendi. He has averaged 2.76 fantasy points in his past 81 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 2.79 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#71) 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 73%, he is the #44 most highly owned outfielder. Oscar Mercado is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #72 fantasy position rank.

WEEK 22 AND 23 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Oscar Mercado is projected for 3.13 fantasy points in one game the rest of the week in week 22 which ranks him as the #21 projected outfielder for the week and a starter for most fantasy teams. This is projected to be a better than average game with more fantasy points than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above Christian Yelich but behind Eddie Rosario the rest of the week. Week 23 will not be as good based on projected rank (#32). He is projected for 15.61 fantasy points.
