George Springer, Yasiel Puig and Eloy Jimenez are Outfielders Projected to Rise

Out of the top 60 outfielders based on total projected fantasy points, 10 have a projected rank that is substantially better than their season to date rank. A couple outfielders who are projected to improve their ranking are Yasiel Puig (#16) and Eloy Jimenez (#21). But of all the outfielders with improved projected ranking, George Springer is the highest ranking one. There are 12 outfielders owned in 100% of leagues and George Springer is projected to be the #5 among them. If you sort these 12 players based on their actual fantasy production and then by their current start percentage, he is the #4 rated player. The projections expect his value to decrease slightly. He is projected for 241 fantasy points in 69 remaining games. His projected average FP rank is the same as his rest of season total rank. The market ranks George Springer behind Trout and above Gallo and the projections agree.

There are only 5 outfielders who are projected to be fantasy busts. Marcell Ozuna, for example, is projected to be just the #55 outfielder and some owners may have better options. If you need help at outfielder there are a number of players who are available in at least 35% of leagues and are projected to be in the top 60 the rest of the season. At #26, Christin Stewart is the highest ranking one.
