Computer Projecting Luke Weaver, Brad Peacock and Jake Odorizzi to Come Up Short Rest of Season

Out of the top 60 starting pitchers based on total projected fantasy points, 2 have a projected rank that is substantially worse than their season to date rank. A couple starting pitchers who are projected to come up below their season rank are Brad Peacock (#43) and Jake Odorizzi (#19). But of all the starting pitchers with a lower rest of season ranking, Luke Weaver is the lowest ranking one. His latest projection based rank among starting pitchers is #61. As of 6/12, Luke Weaver is the #75 ranked starting pitcher based on ownership percentage (74%). Our projections indicate that Luke Weaver is underrated by the market. Even if he is owned in plenty of leagues, he is still undervalued and if you act quickly there is a clear buy low opportunity. Unless someone offers an even better starting pitcher value, we advise you to hold on to him. Of the 3 starting pitchers (Sonny Gray, Steven Matz) with this market rank (74% Owned), he is the top rated one. He is projected for 33 fantasy points in 14 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #49 highest average. The market ranks Luke Weaver behind Gray and above Nelson but the projections rank Luke Weaver over Gray.

There are only 2 starting pitchers whose projected rank is significantly better than their season-to-date rank. Andrew Heaney, at #45, is the highest ranking starting pitcher of this 'must start' group. There are only 5 starting pitchers projected to be major fantasy contributors who are widely available on waiver wires. At #31, Framber Valdez is the highest ranking one.
