Dansby Swanson Expected To Be Out For Two Days

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Dansby Swanson was scratched from the lineup yesterday with heel soreness. The injury is not expected to be serious, but with the off day today the Braves figured it would be a good time to get him two days off. Johan Carmargo will takeover while he’s injured, he is not worth a look in fantasy.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Dansby Swanson to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 58.96 projected fantasy points puts him at #20 behind Corey Seager and ahead of Harold Castro. He has averaged 2.53 fantasy points in his past 236 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 2.6 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#27) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 75%, he is the #18 most highly owned shortstop. Dansby Swanson is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #15 fantasy position rank.

WEEK 23 AND 24 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Dansby Swanson is projected for 2.17 fantasy points in one game the rest of the week in week 23 which ranks him as the #26 projected shortstop for the week and a starter for most fantasy teams. This is projected to be a below average game with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above Scott Kingery but behind J.P. Crawford the rest of the week. Week 24 will not be as good based on projected rank (#30). He is projected for 12.33 fantasy points.
