Week 4 Fantasy Baseball Circle Of Trust

Indians OF Michael Brantley

.348 avg and .375 OBP to start the season with just 2 K’s.  I’m considering picking up Brantley in a daily cats league for his OBP and miniscule K total.  Owned in 38.9% of ESPN and 43% of Yahoo leagues. Injuries have derailed Brantley’s career, but could this be the year he’s finally healthy?  Games this week with the Orioles, 2 at home with the Cubs, and 4 at home vs. the Mariners.

 

Blue Jays OF Teoscar Hernandez

Flipped with Nori Aoki from the Astros to the Jays for Francisco Liriano at last years trade deadline.  6 R 2 Dongs 7 RBI in the last 7 days. Hernandez should get extended run for the Blue Jays going forward.  Owned in 25.5% of ESPN and 37% of Yahoo leagues. I picked up Teoscar in a daily cats league last week and he helped carry me to victory.  Is a short-term add with upside to be rostered long term. 3 home games each with the Red Sox and Rangers this week.

 

Rays SP Blake Snell

In 3 career starts vs. the Orioles, Snell has a 23/3 K/BB ratio.  Has 6 or more strikeouts in his last 3 starts. The Orioles have the lowest team batting average in all of baseball at .215 and have the most strikeouts in the American League with 226.  Snell is owned in 65.9% of ESPN leagues and 81% of Yahoo leagues. The buy low window on this post hype sleeper may be closed after Thursday.
