REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK
Expect Paul Goldschmidt to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 75.23 projected fantasy points puts him at #9 behind Yulieski Gurriel and ahead of Jose Abreu. He has averaged 3.03 fantasy points in his past 292 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 2.98 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#24) 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. Paul Goldschmidt is expected to slightly improve on this season-to-date's #12 fantasy position rank.
WEEK 24 AND 25 FANTASY OUTLOOK
Paul Goldschmidt is projected for 20.54 fantasy points in 7 games which is good enough to be the #6 ranked first baseman and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points per game than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above Jesus Aguilar but behind J.D. Martinez. Week 25 will not be as good based on projected rank (#12). He is projected for 18.72 fantasy points.
