This man is thinking of ways to help your fantasy team.
Many of these players are currently owned and underperforming, this is the perfect recipe for buy-low candidates. If you look at the top of this list, you will see one player that can help you in multiple categories and is in one of the most dangerous lineups. Down the list, we have several hitters who can get you some decent power numbers for cheap. Which one fits your squad?
#1. Curtis Granderson, CF, New York Yankees
When the Yankees traded for Granderson from the Tigers, they expected more from him with the bat. Especially with the hitters ballpark the Yankees have. He is doing good defensively but for some reason he’s not hitting the ball very well. For the season, he is batting .241 with five homeruns and 18 RBI. That’s a little disappointing to hear when you have the kind of lineup the Yankees have. For his career, he’s a .271 hitter. With the Yankees lineup and what he has accomplished with the Tigers, it’s only a matter of time until he gets hot. I believe that time is now. He has a three-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks and L.A. Dodgers, both interleague games. The Diamondbacks pitching staff isn’t all that great and they have the worst ERA in baseball, 5.46. Granderson has a chance to redeem himself against the Diamondbacks and could carry the momentum to the next series, verse the Dodgers. Granderson isn’t going to be available in free agency. However, this is the time to play him. Right now the market for Granderson isn’t all that high. So if you need a center fielder, it won’t be hard to trade for him. (more…)
