All-Star Break Update - 2016 Fantasy Baseball Second Base Rankings

Update (7/11)

Dee Gordon's suspension killed some fantasy owners, but it's kind of their own fault. Sure, we ranked Gordon the #2 2B heading into the season, but I would never suggest selecting him in the top 25! Robinson Cano was the next second baseman drafted and he didn't go until the 5th round. If you have a spot for Gordon, go stash him as he will be back ~ July 28th.

Jonathan Schoop is quietly having a nice year for the Orioles, with a .304 BA, 14 HRs and 52 RBI. He was only drafted in 37% of Yahoo leagues,

Heating Up

Jason Kipnis has scored 14 runs and knocked in 8 over the last 14 games for the Indians.

Along with Daniel Murphy and Brian Dozier, Rougned Odor has scored 10+ runs and picked up 10+ RBI over the two weeks. In just the last seven days, Odor has two doubles, 2 triples and a home run.
