Projections and Value-Based Rankings. If you aren’t using these resources for your weekly lineups and rest-of-season roster decisions, it’s time to start. In daily leagues, you can use both projections and daily matchups to make your decisions. In weekly leagues, projections are even more valuable because they consider the weekly matchups for players.

You can also check out our Hitters Projections Report for comprehensive data on Daily Projections, Weekly Projections, and Rest-of-Season Projections, in addition to statistics. Below are the Top 50 Hitter Projections for this week.
