Jorge Polanco's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON VALUE

The projections say that Jorge Polanco is an elite fantasy shortstop worth starting most weeks. As of 4/21, Jorge Polanco is the #16 ranked shortstop based on ownership percentage (81%). His projection based shortstop rank is #6. Even if he is owned in plenty of leagues, he is still undervalued and if you act quickly there is a clear buy low opportunity. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better shortstop option available. He is projected for 384 fantasy points in 134 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#14) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Jorge Polanco behind Beckham and above Semien but the projections rank Jorge Polanco over Beckham.

He uses his own proprietary model to find great DFS values and often differs from the computer in how a player is projected to play on a daily basis.
