Emilio Pagan is Projected to Be the #7 Reliever...Behind Hector Neris and Ahead of Carlos Martinez 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

Expect Emilio Pagan to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 62.88 projected fantasy points puts him at #7 behind Hector Neris and ahead of Carlos Martinez. He has averaged 1.27 fantasy points in his past 105 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 4.47 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#10) 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 74%, he is the #19 most highly owned reliever. Emilio Pagan is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #23 fantasy position rank.
