Anthony Rendon is Projected to Be the #1 Third Baseman...Ahead of Nolan Arenado the Rest of the Season

As you may have noticed we have transformed Scout into a data and stats driven service geared towards helping invested fans make the right decisions on a daily basis. This is our new Fantasy Scouting Report that we produce for each fantasy relevant player. We treat them like a stock and report their value in season long fantasy, the current fantasy week, and if applicable, on FanDuel and on DraftKings. We establish what is expected of the player based on fantasy ownership %, start %, and DFS Salary and see if our proprietary forecasting model projects a better or worse than expected performance. For complete recaps of the best and worst values for each market (season, weekly, daily), injury reports and team outlooks be sure to check out the new Scout.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Based on our latest projection, you can expect Anthony Rendon to be an elite fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 168.86 projected fantasy points puts him ahead of Nolan Arenado making him our #1 ranked third baseman. He has averaged 3.82 fantasy points in his past 234 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 3.75 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite third baseman. He is projected to live up to these high expectations. Anthony Rendon is expected to slightly improve on this season-to-date's #3 fantasy position rank.
