REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Charlie Blackmon to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 84.31 projected fantasy points puts him at #10 behind Rhys Hoskins and ahead of Nick Castellanos. He has averaged 3.55 fantasy points in his past 271 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 3.51 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#7) 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 not projected for elite value. Charlie Blackmon is expected to come up slightly short of this season-to-date's #7 fantasy position rank.
