REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Charlie Blackmon to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 88.35 projected fantasy points puts him at #8 behind Bryce Harper and ahead of Rhys Hoskins. 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 (#6) 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.
