Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Matt Chapman photo 52. Matt Chapman 3B
Chapman entered the All-Star break on pace for 100 runs, 100 RBIs and 35 homers. That batting average isn't ideal, but those are the numbers of a bonafide stud. If drafts were tomorrow, he'd be top 60 without a doubt.

Davis has dropped off in power this season, but we all know that at the drop of a hat, he can rattle off a dozen homers in a month and quickly climb that leaderboard. He is still be all means a top 25 fantasy outfielder even with is frustrating first half.

If Olson hadn't been injured to start the year, he likely would have been a top 100 pick. Since returning from the IL, he has done nothing to change the narrative so he should continue to be treated as though he is that top 100 player.

Semien's batting average has been better than expected, and while it may come down over the rest of the season, his 25 homer pace with a handful of steals will certainly make him a worthwhile start for fantasy owners.

Believe it or not, Laureano is on pace for 30 homers, 20 steals and 100 runs. While that may not keep up, it is worth noting that he has performed as a top 50 fantasy asset thus far so even if he drops off a cliff, fantasy owners should keep running him out in their lineup every night.

As incredible as Hendricks has been with his 1.15 ERA and 1.01 WHIP to go with 69 Ks in 55 innings, he happens to share a roster with Blake Treinen, who may not be as great this season, but was the best closer in baseball last year. You can use Hendricks without a doubt, but know saves aren't going to be a big part of the equation.

Profar has been downright awful this season for fantasy owners, batting just .212. With that said, he is still on track for 18 homers and double-digit steals so if he can turn the batting average around, we may have a fantasy impact player again.

Fiers is getting the job done this season with a 1.12 WHIP and an ERA well below 4.00. With that has come plenty of wins, but there aren't enough strikeouts to put him in the top 50 fantasy starters.

Jesus Luzardo photo 368. Jesus Luzardo SP
Luzardo is back on the IL for the A's and it now seems likely that he won't throw a ball again this season. If the A's decide to be aggressive, however, Luzardo has the stuff to surge onto the scene in September.

Tanner Roark photo 393. Tanner Roark SP
Roark may not have the best stuff in the world but he has managed to strike out 100 batters already in just 102 innings to go with solid ratios. It may not feel great, but you can use him in most starts.
