Fantasy Baseball Circle Of Trust Round 2

Astros OF Josh Reddick

Hitting .563 in the last 7 days.  3 games on the road vs. the Angels and 3 at home with the Mariners.  Great matchups this week as Reddick is hitting .438 this season against the Angels and only .327 vs. the Mariners.  Reddick is available in 32% of fantasy baseball leagues.


Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury

Batting .429 with 5 RBI in last 7 days.  Ellsbury plays 3 games on the road with the Rays and 4 at home against the Orioles.  Daily players should take notice of Ellsbury’s slash rate vs. the Rays.324/.375/.568, while in Tampa .391/.417/.696. His .344 OBP vs. the Orioles makes Ellsbury worth a play all week. Ellsbury is available in nearly 80% of fantasy baseball leagues.


Indians SP Mike Clevinger

3 straight scoreless starts of 6 frames including a win vs. this Wednesday’s opponent the Tigers.  The road hasn’t been kind to the Tigers as they’ve hit to just a .242 clip.  Clevinger is available in over 50% of fantasy baseball leagues.

Week 1 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer

I anticipate a lot of points thru the air in this game. Palmer is a pickup for Andrew Luck or Jameis Winston owners.


Ravens RB Danny Woodhead

Didn’t play much in the preseason, but is a smart veteran player. PPR owners should feel comfortable using Woodhead as a flex.


Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr.

Should benefit from Willie Snead suspension, worth a flex this week vs. the Vikings.


Chargers TE Hunter Henry

One of my favorite breakout players this season. Once Antonio Gates breaks the receiving TD record, I anticipate Henry to take the majority of the snaps at TE.


Chargers K Younghoe Koo

Name of the year. Was in running for Lou Groza award last season.


Falcons Defense

Pissed off after Super Bowl debacle with a dream matchup vs. Mike Glennon and the offensively challenged Bears.


Lions MLB Jarrad Davis

Rookie in the middle that should be on the field for all 3 downs.



10-Team PPR Draft

10-Team PPR Snake Draft starting with pick 7.

Fantasy Baseball Circle Of Trust Round 1

Blue Jays OF Kevin Pillar

.360/.360/.600 slash rate the last 7 days.  3 on the road vs. the Red Sox and 3 at home with the Tigers.  Batting .280 vs. the Red Sox this year and .286 in Boston.  While the Tigers are in free fall mode.  .370 OBP this season vs. Left-handed pitchers and gets to face lefties on Tuesday and Saturday.  Available in over 75% of fantasy baseball leagues.


Braves SS Dansby Swanson

7 home games this week 3 with the Rangers and 4 against the Marlins. Swanson was sent down earlier this summer to regroup and has done just that. A .329/.429/.447 slash rate for the last 28 days. Swanson is available in nearly 87% of fantasy baseball leagues.


Red Sox SP Doug Fister

Takes on the Blue Jays at home on Wednesday. In his last 3 starts has gone 2-1 with a 1.57 ERA and 0.652 WHIP.  One of the feel good stories of the season as Fister opted out of a minor league deal with the Angels and was placed on waivers. The Red Sox picked him up and have reaped the benefits. The Angels are still looking for solid starters. Available in over 84% of fantasy baseball leagues.
