Fantasy Baseball Beasts: #NowOrNever Vol. II

Fantasy Baseball Beasts:

NowOrNever Vol. II

By Muntradamus
BEAST DOME NATION.

Only three days left in the regular season.  This is a must-read if your team is still competing.  I am going to go over the same material in the Usual BEASTS.  But gear it towards the final days of your regular season.

THIS WILL TAKE YOU HOME TO THE CHAMPIONSHIP!

– IF YOUR TEAM IS OVER THE STARTING PITCHER LIMIT.  ADD CLOSERS and RELIEF PITCHERS.

– IF YOUR TEAM HAS A FEW INN LEFT, BUT NOT ENOUGH FOR A START and you need wins.  ADD RELIEF PITCHERS (DELABAR/PESTANO/D.HERNANDEZ)

Feel Free to Leave Testimonials throughout the Playoffs.

Playoff Strategy #1 – Pitching
Playoff Strategy #2 – Hitting

Use this article for:

1) Hottest Hitters. (Helps with lineup decisions/Free Agent Plug-In Options)

Each week I will start off with all the hot hitters, based off of how I have seen the player play over this past week. If you look at the stats of each player, you will see the potential I see. This is good tool for that tough lineup dilemma, or a possible plug-in-play for your fantasy team off the waiver wire.

2) Hottest Hitting Teams. (Helps with Pitching match-ups)

After I rank the hottest hitters by position, I then do the power-rankings of the hottest teams. You should use that tool to figure out which pitchers to use in this upcoming week.

3) Two Start Sleepers. (If you are looking for a Big Time Sleeper) *DAILY STREAMERS *NEW*NEW.

In weekly leagues the advantage of having a pitcher pitch twice could give you an extra Win, more K’s, and possibly a lower ERA and WHIP if he gets the job done. I will only list two start pitchers I would consider putting in my weekly lineup.

4) Power Schedule. (Teams that have very favorable offensive matchups with pitchers and ballparks)

Have a tough lineup decision to make. This section breaks down a few possible breakout candidates.
