Austin Riley Sent To IL

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Austin Riley was added to the IL yesterday after injuring his knee in the weight room. The extent of the injury is not completely known, but with a ligament injury it could be longer than the minimum. He has not been starting much recently with his poor second half, so there is no fantasy replacement.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Based on average projected fantasy points, Austin Riley is the #30 fantasy third baseman with an average of 2.76 fantasy points per game. But with him projected to play just 12.5 games in you will need to wait on him to deliver value. In 66 games this season he has averaged 2.68 which ranks him as the #21 third baseman based on average.
