HG - Even if your team has gotten off to a tough start there is still enough time to mount a run to your league’s playoffs. Each season fantasy worthy players get hot at different times of the long season and are serviceable options to keep your team scoring points and winning games. While these hot streaks likely don’t last for more than a few weeks, those players are worth using in the short term.
Matt Adams 1B Braves - Adams was picked up by the Braves this past week after losing Freddie Freeman for 10 weeks and so far has been just what the doctor ordered. The former Cardinal is 8 for 25, 360 average, with 2 long balls, 4 RBI and 4 runs scored in one week. Adams has immense power and will get a chance to display it for the Bravos making him well worth an add.
Justin Bour 1B Marlins - Bour continues his power up surge with 8 homers in his last 12 games for the Fish along with a 429 BA and OPS of 1.049. The young lefty has also knocked in 12 runs and scored 12 times over his last dozen games making him a very handy player if your offense is bumbling around.
Jed Lowrie 2B A’s - Lowrie is on a hot streak with hits in seven straight games including 5 multi-hit games, three in a row. The former Astro is on a 16 for 29 tear with 2 long balls, 7 RBI and 7 runs scored in the last week alone. Lowrie makes for a nice addition if your middle infielders could use an infusion of offense.
Chris Taylor 3B/2B Dodgers - Taylor has more than made up for the injured Justin Turner with a 333 batting average with 5 long balls, 17 runs driven in and 17 runs scored. The young Dodger has performed very well in less than 100 at bats. He also has dual eligibility at second and third.
Adam Frazier OF Pirates - Frazier has moved to the leadoff spot and been a nice table setter for the Buccos with an on base average of 446. The young southpaw has also jacked 2 long balls over the last week and has scored 16 runs, knocked in 18 runners, swiped 2 bases and with 7 multi-hits games over the last two weeks.
Corey Dickerson OF Rays - Dickerson continues his impressive rebound after an injury ravaged 2016, sporting a 330 average with base hits in 10 of his last 11 games including 5 multi-hit games over this span. The former Rockie has also been a big run producer with 12 bombs, 23 RBI and 35 runs scored making Dickerson a must own in all leagues and formats.
Scott Schebler OF Reds - Schebler might just be the 2016 Red’s version of Adam Duvall as he has clubbed 4 homers over the last week alone. The young righty now stands at 14 longballs to go with 28 runs driven in, 21 runs scored and 3 stolen bases making Schebler well worth using at this point.
Sonny Gray SP A’s - Gray has been making good progress since returning and his last start this past week encapsulates his immense potential and talent, circa 2015. The 27-year-old tossed 7 innings and allowed just one run on 3 hits while punching out 11 Marlins. Over his last two starts Gray has struck out 19 batters while only walking 3 covering 13 innings.
Eduardo Rodriguez SP Red Sox - Rodriguez has now tossed eight straight quality starts with six frames and 0 earned runs allowed in his last and best start of the 2017 season. The young lefty has allowed just 11 earned runs over 44 innings during his eight-game run for an impressive ERA of 2.77 and WHIP of 1.12. Rodriguez now is 4-1 and a must add going forward.
Zack Godley RP/SP Diamondbacks - Godley has been a godsend for the Diamondbacks with an eye-opening run in the Arizona rotation with just 7 earned runs allowed in 31.1 innings to date and a spiffy ERA of 1.99. The young righty has tossed four quality starts in a row and WHIP of 1.04, and with dual eligibility Godley is a nice piece to add to your roster.
Jose Berrios SP Twins - Berrios continues his great start to the 2017 season with three straight quality starts for the Twins and just 4 earned runs allowed in 21.1 innings. The young righty has also struck out 22 batters and 4 walks in those three outings. Berrios is a must own in all leagues.
