REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Marwin Gonzalez is not projected to be worth a roster spot. His 50.55 projected fantasy points puts him at #88 behind Victor Reyes and ahead of Josh Reddick. He has averaged 2.33 fantasy points in his past 249 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 2.52 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#114) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank.

WEEK 23 AND 24 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Marwin Gonzalez is projected for 1.97 fantasy points in one game the rest of the week in week 23 which only ranks him as the #76 projected outfielder and not a fantasy relevant player. 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 Hunter Renfroe but behind Ben Zobrist the rest of the week. Week 24 will not be as good based on projected rank (#84). He is projected for 11.95 fantasy points.
