He has averaged 2.89 fantasy points in his past 128 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 2.75 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#40) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank.
