Kyle Seager is Projected to Be the #17 Third Baseman...Behind Miguel Sano and Ahead of Hunter Dozier the Rest of the Season

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 Kyle Seager to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 65.19 projected fantasy points puts him at #17 behind Miguel Sano and ahead of Hunter Dozier. He has averaged 2.51 fantasy points in his past 236 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 2.68 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#35) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. At 70% ownership, he is also the #17 most highly owned third baseman. Kyle Seager is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #24 fantasy position rank.

WEEK 23 AND 24 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Davis the rest of the week. Week 24 will not be as good based on projected rank (#23). He is projected for 14.12 fantasy points.
