George Springer, Eloy Jimenez and Yordan Alvarez are Outfielders Projected to Rise

Out of the top 60 outfielders based on total projected fantasy points, 11 have a projected rank that is substantially better than their season to date rank. Eloy Jimenez (#32) and Yordan Alvarez (#12) are a couple outfielders who are projected to improve on their season rank. But of all the outfielders with improved projected ranking, George Springer is the highest ranking one. There are 13 outfielders owned in 100% of leagues and George Springer is projected to be the #5 among them. Using actual fantasy production and current start percentage as the first and second tie-breaker, his market rank is #4. The projections expect his value to decrease slightly. He is projected for 119 fantasy points in 32 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #4 highest average. The market ranks George Springer behind Blackmon and above Betts but the projections rank Betts over George Springer.

There are only 4 outfielders who are projected to be fantasy busts. Kole Calhoun, for example, is projected to be just the #55 outfielder and some owners may have better options. There are a number of outfielders widely available on waiver wires that will be quality fantasy starters the rest of the season. Corey Dickerson, at #30, is the highest ranking outfielder of this waiver wire group.
