REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Juan Soto to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 497.99 projected fantasy points puts him at #6 behind Cody Bellinger and ahead of Charlie Blackmon. He has averaged 3.77 fantasy points in his past 150 games, which is more than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 3.36 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#20) 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 outfielder. He is projected to be very good, but not one of the very best at his position. Juan Soto is expected to come up slightly short of last season's #4 fantasy position rank.
