Hitters: JD Martinez and Alejandro De Aza are the first outfielders on this list that I would look to add.  Jordan Schafer is still killing it but guys like him and Nolan Reimold just don't have the track record to back up their hot starts.  Matt Joyce is a tricky guy too because he had such a great first half last season before slumping after the All-Star break.

Pitchers: I liked Bartolo Colon a lot more last season when he had the Yankees offense support him, but he is proving to be a valuable fantasy pitcher.  Ivan Nova is suprisingly owned in just 58% of Yahoo leagues.  This guy does nothing but rack up Wins.

  1. I am playing in a deep ESPN league so most of these players are gone, but there are still some huge pickups in Yahoo leagues. I need OF help, wish I was looking at these guys right now.

  2. Gary let me know who is available, there has to be someone worth adding!

  3. In my opinion the best available are Adino, Bay, Chris Johnson, maybe Ryan Ludwick. Only problem is I dont feel I cant drop anyone to take a shot on whats available. I just added Duncan, hopefully he will snap out of his funk.

    1. I am NOT a fan of Duncan and would much rather prefer Andino...especially with his multi positions.

      Jason Bay must be avoided(coming from a mets fan) and Chris Johnson was so bad last year...not sure what to expect out of him.

      Ryan Ludwich has the power Duncan has but will have to sit once or twice a week for Chris Heisey

  4. Yeah my problem was I needed a OF and fast because Gardner and Crisp are hurt. I am in a deep 15 man league in ESPN and it is hard to find OF help right now. The best players available I am already 2 deep at in those positions.
