Fantasy Baseball FAAB Waiver Wire: Robert Gasser, Eddie Rosario, Dairon Blanco

Fantasy Baseball FAAB Waiver Wire: Robert Gasser, Eddie Rosario, Dairon Blanco

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

Robert Gasser (SP – MIL)

Robert Gasser was the most added player in NFBC Main Event leagues this week, being added in all 54 Main Event leagues with a maximum bid of $162 and a minimum bid of $15. Gasser made his Major League debut and pitched a six-inning shutout. He isn’t a top-100 prospect. While there is an interesting real-life pitcher as part of his profile, I don’t know that he is much more than a mid-rotation arm. He’s better for deeper formats than shallow ones.

Eddie Rosario (OF – WAS)

Eddie Rosario was picked up in 47 leagues with a max bid of $85 and a minimum bid of $1. Rosario started the season slowly but has been on fire over the last two weeks, hitting .357/.471/.821 with four home runs and stealing four bases in 35 plate appearances. Rosario is a player that can run hot or cold. You want him on your roster now, but be ready to dump him when he inevitably cools back down.

Dairon Blanco (OF – KC)

Dairon Blanco was also picked up in 47 leagues with a max bid of $75 and a minimum bid of $1. Blanco is a pure speed play for fantasy managers with 10 stolen bases on the season for the Royals. He has been hot at the plate this season with a .289/.357/.447 triple slash, but it is influenced by a pretty high batting average on balls in play (BABIP). He will and can run, but you may not get much else with it once the regression comes for his average.
