FANTASY BASEBALL: BEASTS OF WEEK 21
BEAST DOME NATION.
Another week as we are only three weeks away from the playoffs. If you see a player on this list, and you are playing a cold hitter. I would make the move. Feel free to ask questions on the bottom.
*Pitcher Rankings coming at 1:00PM pacific.
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 ALL OF MY PICKS. Article will be out before 1:00pm pacific time.
