Top 5 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers of the Week (Jul. 9th)

Sunday, July 11th, 2010

You can already see the difference in the Phillies lineup.

This week we have some veterans on the list who usually wouldn’t be considered sleepers. Due to injuries and slumps, these players are going to be a little under-the-radar. You should take action immediately and get these guys in your lineups.

#1.Jimmy Rollins, SS, Philadelphia Phillies

This is the perfect time to plug Rollins back into your lineup. Rollins returned form the 15 day DL from a calf injury on June 22nd. Rollins has got some playing time to get the rust out and is going to get a couple more days of rest due to the All-Star break. Somebody has to step up to score some runs due to the injuries to Placido Polanco and Chase Utley. I believe Rollins is the prime candidate. (more…)

Top 5 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers of the Week (July 2nd)

It is difficult to find a more valuable catcher than John Buck these days.

This week we have a variety of players as far as production and positions are concerned. Short stops and catchers are always difficult to find, and this week we have got one for each position for you. Start these players for the week and thank us later, here is this week’s Waiver Wire. (more…)

Jose Guillen has 13 home runs and 42 RBI.

When in a bind fantasy players will often try to find a possible hidden gem. Here at FBS we list some possibilities for you and tell you why, saving you time and effort with conducting research. There are still plenty of bats on most leagues waivers or on your opponent’s bench. The time to act is now, before it is too late to recover. (more…)

Top 5 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers of the Week (Jun. 18th)

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…)

He can't run anymore, but he sure can hit the ball still.

If you are in need of a part-time replacement or just a player to get you some nice production for a couple of days, we may just have your guy. When playing Fantasy Baseball, players must ride the “hot hand” for as long as they can, whether that is a player that is 100% or 1% owned, you must put the hottest players in your lineup. Here are some guys who can give you some additional help for the upcoming week.

 
 
1.Carlos Guillen, DH, Detroit Tigers

Guillen is finally recovering from his sore toe and has been playing and hitting well ever since. Last five games, his batting .381 with three doubles, six RBI and a home run. Guillen will be hitting behind Magglio Ordonez and Miguel Cabrera. He will have a good amount of chances to drive some runs in. He’s only owned in 6.3% of leagues and I would snatch him of the wavier wire. Jim Leyland might be trying to find a position from him on the field so I would keep on eye on that. The Tigers have a three game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks and they have one of the worst pitching roster in the MLB. Diamondbacks ERA is at 5.42. That is worst in the MLB. This series is where you want to take advantage and start Guillen. (more…)
