Waiver Wire Candidate: J.A. Happ is Projected to Be Just the #127 SP the Rest of the Season

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

J.A. Happ may be worth a roster spot in deeper leagues or may be a decent waiver wire pick up. His -1.1 projected fantasy points puts him at #127 behind Vincent Velasquez and ahead of Jeremy Hellickson. He has averaged 1.86 fantasy points in his past 56 games, which is more than our projected per game average. He is projected to average -0.17 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 77%, he is the #67 most highly owned starting pitcher. J.A. Happ is expected to slightly improve on this season-to-date's #128 fantasy position rank.
