Arodys Vizcaino Fantasy Value: Buy, Sell or Hold?

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Many would be surprised to see Arodys Vizcaino projected as an elite fantasy reliever. As of 4/12, Arodys Vizcaino is the #21 ranked reliever based on ownership percentage (74%). He is projected to be the #14 reliever. Even as an established quality fantasy option, if he lives up to projections he is still undervalued and there could be an opportunity to buy 'low'. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better reliever option available. He is projected for more FPs than David Robertson who has virtually the same market rank (74% Owned) as Vizcaino. He is projected for 220 fantasy points in 63 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#17) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Arodys Vizcaino behind Smith and above Robertson but the projections rank Arodys Vizcaino over Smith.
