Raekwon McMillan: Projected to Exceed Expectations and Could Be Worth a Spot on the Bench


Raekwon McMillan is a great fantasy value through the rest of the season. He is owned in 10 percent of CBS leagues and this translates to an expected linebacker rank of #59. He is projected to average 5.7 FPs which translates to a position rank of #53. With a better than expected projection rank there are other linebackers you should avoid considering that are projected for fewer points. Jon Bostic (25 FP), Dee Ford (24 FP), Sean Lee (5 FP), Myles Jack (18 FP), and Anthony Walker Jr. (25 FP) are all worse options.

He is projected to beat market expectations where he is the #59 linebacker based on ownership. Most fantasy players have roughly 30% of their weekly projections deviate significantly from their season average, but he is projected to be more stable and consistent than most.
