Khris Davis On Paternity Leave

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Khris Davis was added to the paternity list yesterday. He will be out for at least three days before returning to the team next week. His replacement is only worth a look in daily fantasy leagues.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Khris Davis to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 70.75 projected fantasy points puts him at #14 behind Eric Hosmer and ahead of Matt Beaty. He has averaged 2.94 fantasy points in his past 261 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 2.97 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#25) 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 81%, he is the #21 most highly owned first baseman. Khris Davis is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #29 fantasy position rank.

WEEK 24 AND 25 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Khris Davis is projected for 18.03 fantasy points in 6 games in week 24 which ranks him as the #16 projected first baseman for the week and a starter for most fantasy teams. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points per game than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above Matt Carpenter but behind Yulieski Gurriel. Week 25 will be slightly worse based on projected rank (#17). He is projected for 17.94 fantasy points.
