Evan Longoria is Projected to Be the #13 Third Baseman...Behind Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Ahead of Justin Turner the Rest of the Season

As you may have noticed we have transformed Scout into a data and stats driven service geared towards helping invested fans make the right decisions on a daily basis. This is our new Fantasy Scouting Report that we produce for each fantasy relevant player. We treat them like a stock and report their value in season long fantasy, the current fantasy week, and if applicable, on FanDuel and on DraftKings. We establish what is expected of the player based on fantasy ownership %, start %, and DFS Salary and see if our proprietary forecasting model projects a better or worse than expected performance. For complete recaps of the best and worst values for each market (season, weekly, daily), injury reports and team outlooks be sure to check out the new Scout.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Evan Longoria to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 69.65 projected fantasy points puts him at #13 behind Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and ahead of Justin Turner. He has averaged 2.43 fantasy points in his past 228 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 2.71 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#32) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 33%, he is the #24 most highly owned third baseman. Evan Longoria is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #19 fantasy position rank.
