Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Javier Baez photo 19. Javier Baez 2B,3B,SS
The underlying metrics screamed regression last year but it hasn't come. It may be time to admit that he is some kind of cheat code who will continue to defy BABIP odds and bat near .300 with all the power to go with it.

Rizzo is your typical player who is much better in real life than in fantasy baseball. With that said, he is still on track to hit 35 homers with a quality batting average, but that doesn't mean he is as useful as even Max Muncy in fantasy.

Believe it or not, Bryant is on pace for 130 runs this season despite his slow start. He won't bop 40 homers like some of the other stars, but with a quality batting average and sufficient power, fantasy owners have to be pleased with their investment.

Castellanos isn't doing nearly as much this season for the Tigers as we have grown to expect from him. He may end up with 90 runs scored, but with no one else in the lineup, his RBIs are vastly behind what we've seen in the past. Likewise, his power is virtually non-existent.

Willson Contreras photo 84. Willson Contreras C
Through the first half of baseball, Willson Contreras has been the top fantasy catcher with nearly 20 homers to go with 51 RBIs and a .286 batting average. As long as he can stay on the field, you've got a top 60 overall fantasy value in Contreras.

Kyle Schwarber photo 93. Kyle Schwarber LF
No one is surprised by Schwarber's performance thus far as he is yet again, piling up runs and RBIs with a pace of 35 homers. All of that is great, of course, but the batting average is once again south of .240 so he doesn't offer much more value than a Randal Grichuk.

Jason Heyward photo 168. Jason Heyward CF,RF
As difficult as it may be to believe, Heyward is actually hitting quite well so far this season with a 25-homer pace and a batting average back up around .280. It might not be here to stay, but you can be sure that he is worthy of a roster spot in your fantasy league.
