Here we are again.  The fantasy baseball playoffs have crept back up on us like a ninja and just like in years past, variables abound.  There are always a handful of fantasy owners who shift their attention to fantasy football around this time and tend to neglect their baseball squads for a couple days.  Those are the types of advantages that one needs to exploit in order to rip through their playoff bracket and grab the bragging rights waiting on the other side.  I’ve got a couple unheralded players that are available in a majority of leagues who can help you bolster your roster and secure that title.

With that said, fantasy owners are more-or-less doing the opposite.  Our goal is to set the best lineup for THAT WEEK.  No different than any other time during the season, this is true.  However, we may find ourselves taking a few more chances during these last few weeks.  Without further theatrics, let’s take a look at this week’s Top 5 Risers and Fallers.
