Week 1 Fantasy Baseball Circle Of Trust

Indians 2B Jason Kipnis

Career numbers in Seattle(.235) and Anaheim (.167) could be cause for concern, however Kipnis has been on fire this spring. Spring slash rate of .375/.434/.833 shows that Kipnis may actually be healthy entering this season.  Owned in 57.1% of ESPN leagues.

 

Giants 3B Evan Longoria

Slash rate of .371/.450/.993 so far this spring. In the drafts I’ve done so far Evan Almighty has been viewed as an afterthought.  I got him late in a draft for $6. Isolated power went down last season, but I think Longoria can still provide solid numbers going back to Cali. Owned in 89.1% of ESPN leagues. 

 

Cubs SP Jon Lester

Was able to draft Lester in a pair of auctions for $8. I find it hard to believe the veteran lefty has a 4.33 ERA again in 2018.  Average velocities dropped down in 2017, but Lester will provide a lot of value in his age 34 season. Don’t be afraid to use Lester in your lineup vs. the Marlins.  Owned in 96.6% of ESPN leagues.
