Fantasy Baseball FAAB Waiver Wire: Kyle Manzardo, Matt Manning, Jalen Beeks

Fantasy Baseball FAAB Waiver Wire: Kyle Manzardo, Matt Manning, Jalen Beeks

It’s time for another week of high-stakes league fantasy baseball waiver wire review. The best players in the world play on NFBC and the most popular high stakes contest is the NFBC Main Event, which has a $1,750 buy-in with a $7,000 league prize and a $200,000 overall prize. Thankfully, for everyone, NFBC allows us to see what each team is doing with their FAAB pickups on Sunday night.

Each week, I look at the most popular fantasy baseball waiver wire and FAAB pickups in the NFBC Main Event to see who the best players in the world are picking up and whether we should add them.

Fantasy Baseball FAAB Waiver Wire Pickups: Week 8

Kyle Manzardo (1B – CLE)

Kyle Manzardo was picked up in 41 leagues with a max bid of $201 and a minimum bid of $13. Manzardo is a top-tier prospect but not your prototypical first baseman as he lacks massive power. He does have a fantastic hit tool, but there is worry he will struggle to find time unless he hits right out of the gate because of Josh Naylor blocking him at first.

Matt Manning (SP – DET)

Matt Manning was picked up in 38 leagues with a max bid of $113 and a minimum bid of $22. Manning was in line for a two-start week, including a nice matchup versus the Marlins to begin the week in which he pitched mediocre. He could stick in the rotation, but he has struggled with command and control throughout his time in the Majors and has never been able to show the strikeout stuff he was known for early on in his prospect pedigree. I am not willing to bet he finds it any time soon.

Jalen Beeks (SP, RP – COL)

Jalen Beeks was picked up in 38 Main Event leagues with a max bid of $111 and a minimum bid of $3. Beeks seems to be a leading candidate for the Rockies’ closing job, but they also have Justin Lawrence. I am rarely interested in a Rockies closer, especially a split job because there is so much risk without a ton of upside in Coors.
