Ketel Marte Is Just The #10 2B on FanDuel But Is The #3 Highest Priced on 9/1

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 Ketel Marte to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 73.72 projected fantasy points puts him at #5 behind Whit Merrifield and ahead of Luis Arraez. He has averaged 3.02 fantasy points in his past 279 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 3.14 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#7) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 99%, he is the #6 most highly owned second baseman. Ketel Marte is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #1 fantasy position rank.

This is projected to be a below average game with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above Eric Sogard but behind Gleyber Torres the rest of the week. Week 24 will be better based on projected rank (#7). He is projected for 17.31 fantasy points.
