REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Max Muncy to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 77.64 projected fantasy points puts him at #13 behind Eric Hosmer and ahead of Matt Olson. He has averaged 3.12 fantasy points in his past 265 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 3.24 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#14) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite first baseman. He is not projected for elite value. Max Muncy is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #9 fantasy position rank.
