FANTASY BASEBALL: BEASTS OF WEEK 23

FANTASY BASEBALL: BEASTS OF WEEK 23


By Muntradamus

 

BEAST DOME NATION.

#NOWORNEVER.  #Playoffs2012

One piece of advice if you play in daily leagues. On days you do not have starters going, have as many closers or RPs as you can without hurting the core of your pitching staff.  Everyday could be your last, you want the best team out there.  More strategies coming later in the week.

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.

  1. GW your team is ELITE enough where Gomez is good, but you can live w/o him.

    Harvey there is no room for, you can choose between Kennedy or Harvey tonight. I would go with Kennedy.
