REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Max Scherzer to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 131.48 projected fantasy points puts him at #8 behind Clayton Kershaw and ahead of Luis Castillo. He is expected to be out through 5/14 which impacts his rest of season ranking. He has averaged 5.24 fantasy points in his past 28 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 5.26 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#6) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points.
