Who is Worth More Over the Rest of the Season - Rust vs Eberle

REST OF SEASON VALUE

His latest projection based rank among right wings is #35. Ranking by ownership percentage (40%), Bryan Rust is expected to be the #42 right wing for the rest of the season. Our projections indicate that Bryan Rust is underrated by the market. There could be an opportunity to acquire him while the market is still not as high on them as the projections are. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better right wing option available. He is projected for more FPs than Travis Konecny who has virtually the same market rank (40% Owned) as Rust. He is projected for 65 fantasy points in 35 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#43) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Bryan Rust behind Eberle and above Konecny but the projections rank Bryan Rust over Eberle.
