    As of 6/21, Austin Meadows is the #15 ranked outfielder based on ownership percentage (99%). With a lower market rank than projection rank, consider Austin Meadows to be undervalued. His fantasy outfielder projection rank is #11. 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. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better outfielder option available. There are other outfielders with virtually the same market rank (Michael Brantley, Starling Marte, Thomas Pham, Joey Gallo, Andrew Benintendi 99% Owned) and Meadows ranks #2 out of 6. He is projected for 254 fantasy points in 78 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#13) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Austin Meadows behind Pham and above Marte and the projections agree.

    His FanDuel average was 12.5 points and on DraftKings it was 9.6 per game. We looked at all of his games that were between the 10th and 90th percentile where the 10th percentile is his floor and the 90th is his ceiling. When he was bad in DFS, he was really bad with a floor of zero points. He had a relatively high ceiling. On DraftKings it was 17 and on FanDuel it was 29.4 FPs. He has had more bad FanDuel games (below average by 20%) than good games (20% above average), and the same was true on DraftKings. We are only including games where they were in the daily fantasy slate and played.
