FantasyPros Baseball Podcast: League-Winning Sleepers

Mar 14, 2019
Shane Bieber

Shane Bieber’s dazzling command should elevate his value through the season

Welcome to another episode of the FantasyPros Baseball Podcast. The show is hosted by our own Bobby Sylvester (@bobbyfantasypros). He’ll be interviewing featured experts and team correspondents who will provide insight throughout the baseball season.

For today’s show, we’ve brought along Chris Meaney from The Athletic to help us break down some of fantasy baseball’s most valuable sleepers. Paul DeJong (11:47) is a well-rounded hitter who bats cleanup in a talented lineup, Hunter Renfroe’s (22:57) power should give him plenty of RBIs, and Shane Bieber (33:04) boasts elite command in a weak division. Could Harrison Bader (42:36) be both an offensive and defensive superstar in the making and is Jimmy Nelson (57:45) primed for a breakout season?
