Freitas Projected to Average 2 FPs (#63 C) And Meet Expectations


Ranking by ownership percentage (under 1%) and season fantasy rankings, David Freitas is expected to be the #63 catcher for the season. The projections have him 12 spots higher in the rankings. While not a great fantasy option, he may be good for a spot start if you are in bind and with a market ranking this low, there could be a clear opportunity to acquire him via trade or waiver wire pick up. He is projected for 145 fantasy points in 64 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #43 highest average. The market ranks David Freitas behind Severino and above Sucre but the projections rank these players in reverse order.
