Yadier Molina's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND PLAY OR FADE ADVICE

He is a better value on DrafKings than on FanDuel based on position specific points per dollar calculations. He is projected for 7.6 FD points and is worth -$117 less than $2.8K on FD. On DK he is projected for 5.7 points and is worth +$1391 more than $3.3K. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Yadier Molina to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 29.61 projected fantasy points puts him at #7 behind Buster Posey and ahead of Yasmani Grandal. He has averaged 2.59 fantasy points in his past 221 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 2.41 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#45) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 87%, he is the #10 most highly owned catcher. Yadier Molina is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #14 fantasy position rank.

WEEK 25 AND 26 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Yadier Molina is projected for 4.37 fantasy points in 2 games the rest of the week which is good enough to be the #8 ranked catcher 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 Reese McGuire but behind Robinson Chirinos the rest of the week. Week 26 is projected to be slightly better based on projected rank (#6). He is projected for 13.11 fantasy points.
