Fantasy Baseball: BEASTS OF WEEK 9

Fantasy Baseball: BEASTS OF WEEK 9

By Muntradamus

 

BEAST DOME NATION,

This article is intended to help you be prepared for the week ahead.

 

1) Hottest Hitters. (Helps with lineup decisions)

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.

 

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.

  1. Hello Muntradamus,
    I took your advice early on getting rid of Kyle Lohse and Jeremy Hellickson for an elite quality player. I combined those two for CC Sabathia, and talked it up, in which allowed me to get the trade accepted. Sweet, hopefully my team is pretty solid now with Cliff Lee and Sabathia!
    Current Lineup:
    *Hitters*
    C: Alex Avila
    1B: Mark Trumbo
    2B: Ian Kinsler
    3B Brett Lawrie
    SS Elvis Andrus
    2B/SS Jimmy Rollins
    1B/3B Joe Mauer
    OF (x5): Michael Borun, Jose Bautista, Ichiro Suzuki, Jason Heyward, and Melky Cabrera
    UTIL: Robinson Cano
    Bench: Ryan Doumit (probably drop for Pedro Alvarez again)
    DL: Pablo Sandoval
    *Pitchers*
    Craig Kimbrel
    Cliff Lee
    Jordan Walden
    Josh Beckett
    Ivan Nova
    Rafael Soriano
    Felipe Paulino
    Brian Fuentes
    Derek Holland
    Johan Santana
    Kyle Lohse, Jeremy Hellickson for CC Sabathia (accepted, pending up until 12 today)
    DL: Huston Street

    (This is what Im up against for this current round)
    I feel like my team is developing more and more each week with all your helpful articles (same goes for WunderChad, and BrookkynBurms articles as well). I honestly cannot thank y’all enough for your enlightening advice. Thanks.
    Sincerely,
    Scream
