Byron Buxton Added To Concussion IL

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

Based on average projected fantasy points, Byron Buxton is the #67 fantasy outfielder with an average of 2.82 fantasy points per game. But with him projected to play just 21 games in you will need to wait on him to deliver value. In 79 games this season he has averaged 2.82 which ranks him as the #43 outfielder based on average.
