Chris Sale's Fantasy Scouting Report

DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK

Draft Chris Sale as a weekly fantasy starter in 2019-2020. His 72.24 projected fantasy points puts him at #36 behind Sonny Gray and ahead of German Marquez. His fantasy ranking is obviously going to be negatively impacted given the expectation that he is out through 4/30. He has averaged 1.46 fantasy points in his past 25 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 3.47 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#21) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 63%, he is the #79 most highly owned starting pitcher. Chris Sale is expected to improve on last season's #52 fantasy position rank.
