Now Is The Time To Trade Overachievers For Underachievers In Fantasy Baseball

Most teams have played around 81 games by now, so the baseball season is half over. It’s a good time to assess which players on your team are likely to decline—and thus give you a chance to trade them to a desperate owner that doesn’t know any better. Likewise, you can scour league rosters for those players who have underachieved and smile all the way to October when they have superb second halves.

Certain Positions In Fantasy Baseball Require Quality Backups On Your Bench

What are the thinnest positions in fantasy baseball? Catcher? The infield positions of second base, shortstop and third base? All of the above? Yes, depth is better in the outfield and first base positions, so when you think about which players to stash on your bench, think about the ones with multi-position eligibility. They may not be the most productive on a day-to-day basis, but they have the capability to be very valuable to your team’s chances of winning.
