REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Charlie Blackmon to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 91.71 projected fantasy points puts him at #7 behind Marcell Ozuna and ahead of Bryce Harper. He has averaged 3.55 fantasy points in his past 270 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 3.54 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#5) is better than 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 projected to be very good, but not one of the very best at his position. Charlie Blackmon is expected to come up slightly short of this season-to-date's #6 fantasy position rank.

WEEK 23 AND 24 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Charlie Blackmon is projected for 11.82 fantasy points in 3 games the rest of the week which is good enough to be the #6 ranked outfielder and a must start for most owners. 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 Yordan Alvarez but behind Mookie Betts the rest of the week. Week 24 will not be as good based on projected rank (#17). He is projected for 19.51 fantasy points.
