SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE
Byron Buxton was added to the 7-day concussion IL yesterday after making a diving catch and hitting his head over the weekend. Marwin Gonzalez has been getting the extra playing time while he has been injured but he is not worth a look in fantasy. Buxton should be back by the end of the week and Gonzalez will lose playing time when that happens.
REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK
You can expect Byron Buxton to be a good bench player who will start in certain weeks the rest of the season. His 138.81 projected fantasy points puts him at #45 behind Christin Stewart and ahead of Hunter Pence. He has averaged 2.21 fantasy points in his past 101 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 2.78 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#69) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 74%, he is the #47 most highly owned outfielder. Byron Buxton is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #61 fantasy position rank.
