Freddie Freeman is Projected to Be the #6 First Baseman-DH...Behind Paul Goldschmidt and Ahead of Josh Bell the Rest of the Season

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Freddie Freeman to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 80.3 projected fantasy points puts him at #6 behind Paul Goldschmidt and ahead of Josh Bell. He has averaged 3.57 fantasy points in his past 298 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 3.31 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#10) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite first baseman. He is projected to be very good, but not one of the very best at his position. Freddie Freeman is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #2 fantasy position rank.
