Andrew Benintendi is a bad value the rest of the week. He has a market rank of #16 while his projection (rest of week 14) rank is #79. In week 15 rankings vs other outfielders instead of Benintendi consider these better options at lower start percentages: Justin Upton (20 FP) and Joey Gallo (21 FP). Michael Brantley (14.9 FP), Bryce Harper (17.6 FP), Charlie Blackmon (18.7 FP), Marcell Ozuna (18.7 FP), and Domingo Santana (12 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Benintendi but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 79% of leagues he is expected to produce 17.6 fantasy points (WK 15). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #23 outfielder of week 15. He is projected to be better than that (the #9 outfielder). His per game projected FP average is 3.4 which is better than his actual per game average (2.9). In addition to a solid projected FP average, he will benefit from playing a projected 6 games.
