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)

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.

 

This week in DRAFTSTREET, I will be giving my one hitter and one pitcher picks of the day.  Article will be out before 1:00pm pacific time.

  1. Awesome! I love the new features. 2 start sleeps will really help a lot for my weekly leagues. Never thought I’d see the day when @TEX @NYY was the 2nd best week in the MLB… haha!
