All Things Fantasy (6-11-12)

This is Monday, June 11th, 2012 edition of  “All Things Fantasy” where I talk about players you should pickup for Fantasy Baseball and some 2 week starters for next week. Also, I give 5 overrated and 5 underrated Wide Receivers for this upcoming fantasy football season. My notes from the show are listed below.

Pickups

Ben Revere (8%) OF, Min- is back to getting Regular ABs for Minnesota and is making the most of it. in his last 6 games  he has a .458 BA w/ 6 runs, 3 RBI, and 4 SBs. SBs is why this guy is in the lineup and if your in need of SBs.

Brett Wallace 1B, HOU- Just got called up this past week and has made the most of it as he is batting .400 w 5 XBHs,7 runs, 2 HR, and 4 RBI. this is one of the Astros top prospects and could provide some good pop. I just picked him up b/c I think he can produce and is going to get every chance to produce.

Gabby Sanchez 1B, MIA (23.4%) – Just got recalled from AAA and inserted right back in the starting lineup. I like what this guy brings and hit .310 w a .494 OBP at triple A. He could be a reliable fantasy player from here on out.

Michael Sanders OF, SEA (40%, up 35%)- brings that Rare Combo of speed and power. His numbers don’t look amazing as he has 6 HRs, and 9 SBs on the season, But he is batting .420 in his last 12 games with 2 HRs, 9 runs, 6 RBIs, and 2 SBS. He is a low end option but an option none the less.

Trevor Plouffe (13.3%)SS, 3B, OF, Min- is on fire recently, in his last 10 games the guy is has a .359 Bam 8 runs, 5 HR, and 10 RBIS. I like this guys staying power and I believe in his hot streak, plus you add all the positions he is eligible for and it makes him a solid pickup

Brandon League (61.2%) CL, SEA- League lost his closer role earlier this season, but I have read numerous reports that SEA is going to put this guy back in the closer role soon. Will he produce? I dunno, but he will be inline for saves and that’s what makes him a solid pickup.

Ubaldo Jimenez( 50%)- looks whos back in consideration, Ubaldo has had back2 back against STL and DET 2 good offenses, has combined 13.2 /3 innings, 10 hits, 2 ERS, 11 KS, and only 1 walk. this could be a great turning points for him and his next start is sat vs PIT who is one of the worst offensive teams in the league

Ryan Cook- I have been preaching about this guy for last couple of weeks and Im pretty sure the As have heard me bc they finally have gone to the dreaded Closer by Committee. I think its more between him and Grant Balfour and Cook has been the best pitcher in As bullpen so far this season

Scott Diamond ( 32.6%)P, MIN- vs PHI,- where did this guy come from??

Hiroki Kuroda 62% SP, Yank- has been flat out AWESOME in his last starts as he has combined for 22 IP, 2 wins, 2 ERs, 0.62 Whip and 14 Ks over those 3 games. His next game is @ ATL and I think Kuroda could be a great pitcher the rest of the season

Underrrated

Stevie Johnson- has had back 2 back season with over 1000 receiving Yards and 7 or more tds.. the only other WRs that can say that are Roddy white, Calvin Johnson, Mike Wallace, hakeem Nicks Marques Colston-

Antonio Brown- was 13th among WR with 1108 Receiving yards but only 2 TDS last year. I look for both of those numbers to improve. If he get 7-9 TDS this year then we are talking a top 15 WR.

Eric Decker-

Malcolm Floyd/ Robert Meachem- New WRs for the Chargers

Torrey Smith- Hes the Ravens deep threat, he has worked this offseason to improve his work ethic and want to “dominate”. I think this guy has major potential and has another WR in Aquan Boldin beside him/

Overrated

Wes Welker- was 3rd  in points for a WR last year, but there are some major Red Flags going into this year that would steer me away from him.  He had 9 TDs last year which was tied for 4th most in the league, but he only 3 from week 7 and on and 2 of those came in one game. They added Brandon Llyod and Jabar gaffney. Plus their 2 really good TEs and I Just don’t see the same production this year as he had last year.

Laurent Robinson- Being on the Jags

Vincent Jackson- was tied for 9th w/ Mike Wallace in fantasy points for a WR. Hes going to Tampa Bay whos QB isn’t as good as Philip Rivers, last year stats are very misleading for Jackson he had only 6 games of double digit scoring including 3 monstrous games that yielded him  29,32,and 22 FPS=83 points which is basically half of his points he scored all season. He had 8 games of scoring 5 fantasy points or less. Now, he is with a QB who isn’t as good. I just don’t see him being a top 10 or even top 20 WR this year.

Santanio Holmes- Names draw a lot of attention, bbut his QBs are brutal

Andre Johnson- not what he used to be, Injury Prone missed 9 games last year, and 3 the year before., Texans throwing the ball less
