REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Aaron Judge to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 78.42 projected fantasy points puts him at #25 behind Austin Meadows and ahead of Kyle Schwarber. He has averaged 3.27 fantasy points in his past 188 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 3.2 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 outfielder. He is not projected for elite value. Aaron Judge is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #63 fantasy position rank.
