FANTASY BASEBALL: Beasts of Week 22

FANTASY BASEBALL: BEASTS OF WEEK 22


By Muntradamus

 

BEAST DOME NATION.

Another week as some of us are at 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.
