Based on start%, Agrazal is expected to produce more fantasy points than Peter Lambert but the projections say otherwise. Rodriguez is the player that the market has ranked 1 spot below Peter Lambert but the projections have Rodriguez putting up more fantasy points. He is starting in just 3% of leagues and with a projected starting pitcher rank of #101 in week 18 it makes sense that he is not starting in many leagues.

He is projected for -1.4 fantasy points in week 18 (#144 SP) in 4 games.
