Prince Fielder (1B,DH)

Texas Rangers - 97% owned

Bats: L, Throws: R

Fielder was a different animal in the recent New York series. The Rangers were able to sweep and in that game he went 3-for-5 with 2 RBI. On the season he is hitting .358/.412/.964 with 8 homers, 32 RBI and 0 stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact: After the season he had last year it would seem pretty strange to think of him as a top 10 player but so far this season he is in the top 10 or very close. We went into the draft knowing that he would be a great bargain but we never expected it to be this sweet. If you have him hold on tight and if you don't, good luck.

The Rangers pulled out a win large in part to Prince Fielder going 2-for-5 with 2 homers and 4 RBI. He is now hitting .341/.397/.918 with 7 home runs, 27 RBI and 0 stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact: This was easily Fielder's best game of the season and it was very much a reward for patient fantasy owners. He got off to a fantastic start but the power wasn't there at the start of the season but owners stuck with him and here he comes. He looks like he is back to being an elite player. Good luck if you are looking to trade for him.

The Rangers lost 3-2 but Fielder contributed a 2-for-4 game. He improved his stats further and is now hitting .348/.404/.907 with 5 homers, 23 RBI, 0 stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact: While Nelson Cruz and Bryce Harper have been getting all the press for their fantastic starts, Prince Fielder has been flying under the radar but has also benefited from a great start. He is the owner of the best batting average in The American League and getting no attention for it. He is back as a fantasy force and he can help your team in a lot of ways. However, he will be very expensive.

The Rangers triumphed over The Royals 5-2 on Wednesday. In that game Fielder went 3-for-4 with 2 singles and a 2 run home run. He is now batting a very robust .346/.396/.889 with 4 home run, 19 RBI and 0 stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact: The Rangers are playing the best baseball they have played all season and Fielder has elevated his play to match them. I say elevated but he was already playing extremely well, he just got better. The home run power has arrived and he is looking unstoppable. He is starting to become a must own.

In an extra inning loss, Prince Fielder went 1-for-4 with 2 RBI. On the season he hitting; .333/.386/.848 with 3 homers, 17 RBI and 0 stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact: He has been incredible for The Rangers this year. He has hit in key situations and just about in any other situation. He would be a great addition to any fantasy baseball team but if you are looking to acquire him, but his value is building. If you do own him now would be a great time to trade him away, just know what you are losing.

In the game against The Royals Fielder went 2-for-5 with a home run, a single and an RBI. He is now hitting .336/.393/.862, 3 home runs, 15 RBI, and 0 stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder has been hot all year and this game was no different. The Rangers are picking it up of late and now he will get more and more chances. He has been propping up his teammates all year but now will get some support. If you are looking to trade for him you better do it soon.

He only got 1 hit but it was a 2 run double. He is now hitting; .350/.407/.893 with 2 homers, 13 RBI and 0 stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact: The only gripe with Fielder's game right now is his lack of power, but he has consistently shown he can drive the ball into the gaps and get on base, so it is a very minor one. He is having a great season, even without the bombs. His value is still low enough to make a trade but be sure to mention the lack of round-trippers in negotiations. He will run into a few balls before the season is done.

Fielder was one of the few Rangers to solve the Athletics' pitching in Sunday's 7-1 loss, connecting for 2 base hits. He is now hitting a robust .358/.419/. .903 with 2 homers, 11 RBI and 0 stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder stuck to the script on Sunday, playing the part as The Rangers' best player just like he has done all season. It's hard to believe that he has done so well with the offense the way it is but he continues to swing a hot bat. He is in the midst of his best season in a long time and the team he plays for will drive down his perceived value on the trade market. This is the time to pursue him.

In a game that The Rangers won 7-1, Prince Fielder went 2-for-5 with a home run and 3 RBI. He is now batting; .386/.435/.944 with 1 home run, 9 RBI and 0 stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact: Looking at his lack of home runs you may have been under the impression that Fielder was struggling but in fact he has been the best Ranger so far. He has been smoking the ball and it is great to see his power coming to life. He is off to a great start and if he hits for more power, he will get even better. He is currently having a bounce back season and it wold be a great idea to target him on the trade market, but at this point it will be very difficult.

Prince Fielder continued his incredible pace on Monday, picking up another two hits. So far this season he is hitting; .394/.444/.899 with four RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder is making a lot of drafters regret not believing in him on draft day. He is seeing the ball really well and despite the fact he is still without a homer, owners are not complaining. He will come back to Earth at some point but this looks like the start of another great season. Your window to snag him is closing quickly.

Prince Fielder racked up 3 hits in Sunday's extra innings loss to The Astros. So far this season he is hitting .379/.438/.886 with 0 home runs and 3 RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder has been on a tear of late and he is currently one of the hottest players in the league. He is still without a home run but I have a feeling we won't have to wait much longer. He is hitting the ball better than we have seen in a long time and if he can return to his production levels of the past he will once again be a top first baseman.

Prince Fielder picked up another 3 hits on Friday. He now has 4 straight games with a hit and is batting .421 for the season.

Fantasy Impact: He has been the best player for the Rangers so far in this young season, although he hasn't been getting much help from his teammates. The power has yet to show up but it is certainly on it's way. His other counting stats will also get going when those around him start to wake up. Fielder's value has been the highest it has been in more than a year, yet it's still a great time to buy in.

Fielder's bat showed up once again in Thursday's win against The Athletics. He smacked 2 hits for the second time in this series.

Fantasy Impact: Thus far in the season The Rangers' offense has been pretty all or nothing but the one guy that has been consistently getting hits is Prince Fielder. He has yet to hit a home run but he has been getting on base at a great clip and the power will come. He has been showing that the faith drafters have in him had not been misplaced.

The Texas Rangers got their first win Tuesday on the back of slugger Prince Fielder. He collected his first 2 hits of the season as well as his first 2 RBI.

Fantasy Impact: This is the side of Fielder that we have been dying to see. It's still very early but we didn't see much of this from him last year. He had a great Spring and this is looking more and more like a bounce back year. Buy in while you can.

Prince Fielder finding his groove

Prince Fielder is looking to have a major bounce-back after his first season with the Rangers. That season was cut short due to injury but he looks healthy this spring. Fielder is batting .294 with one home run and six RBI.

Fantasy Impact: The biggest piece of news here is that Fielder is healthy. He is expected to be a huge piece to the Rangers offense this season and as long as he remains healthy, he should put up elite power numbers. Fielder will be a steal on draft day because of his injury-shortened 2014.


Texas Rangers' first baseman Prince Fielder is fully recovered from mid-season neck surgery and he is conducting his normal off-season regime. He will be ready to go when Spring Training rolls around. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: After a very disappointing 2014 season, Fielder makes an excellent draft target in the coming season. Many fantasy owners will be scared away by last year's performance, causing him to slip in drafts and could create an opportunity to get a premier power hitter for a discounted price. He has a very good chance to become 2015's top bounce back performer; draft accordingly.
