Now that we’re finally down to the final weekend of the regular season, here’s hoping you’ve already locked up a fantasy title or two (or, like me, have a couple of leagues that are going to excitingly but excruciatingly come down to the final at bats and pitches of the year).  But if you haven’t had much to play for recently, you may have missed some of the less splashy guys who have been performing well at the major league level over the last month of two of 2019.  And whether or not you’ve achieved fantasy baseball glory this year, as far as I’m concerned, it’s never too late to look forward to 2020.  With that in mind, let’s take a look at a handful of players, in no particular order whatsoever, who are relatively under the radar, but have ended the season on a high note and might be of interest to us deep-leaguers (and maybe even some medium and shallow-ish leaguers) next spring.

Garrett Hampson. Hampson was a pre-season sleeper due mainly to his (mostly speed-related) impressive minor league numbers, but he didn’t exactly pan out early on for anyone who invested in him on draft day.  But those of us who gave up on him months ago might be interested to hear just how impressively he’s finishing up the season:  over the last two weeks, he’s put up some fairly ridiculous numbers, hitting .400 with 5 homers and 7 steals.

It’s crunch time kids, only two weeks to go.  Many of you probably gave up on your fantasy baseball teams weeks or months ago (as I have with a couple of mine), and are now concentrating your free time on fantasy football, enjoying what is technically the last week of summer, or, craziest of all, focusing on real-life work or family issues.  But if you’re in a deep fantasy league and still fighting for a championship, let’s get right to what we came for:  a few names that may be of interest to those in NL-only, AL-only, and other deep leagues.

As you steamroll or limp your way towards the end of the fantasy season, depending on how your teams are doing, why not remember that it’s never too late to keep an eye out for upgrades even in the deepest of leagues.  Well, it may officially be too late if your team is mired at the bottom of the standings, but why not end the year on a positive note by trying to make improvements rather than thinking about how much better your life would be if you’d never heard of Trevor Bauer, Blake Snell, or Jose Ramirez?  Here then, are some players who might be of interest to those of us in NL-only, AL-only, or other deep leagues.

Good morning, afternoon, or evening, everyone!  As we begin September, there will of course be a flurry of call-ups with rosters expanding, which should provide more options for those of us in deeper leagues. For now, though, let’s take a step towards the shallower end of the fantasy baseball pool, and look at a handful of players that not only should be owned in deeper leagues, but may have become mixed-league relevant for the time being as well.  The players below are the most added in CBS leagues over the last week that have still stayed near the 50%-owned-or-less threshold:  let’s make sure none of them are flying too far under the radar, regardless of league size.

There’s usually a several-week lull between the MLB trade deadline and September call-ups where things on the deep-league waiver wire are extra, extra dire.  I feel like that’s been true again over the last few weeks this season, though it also seems like we are getting a slow trickle of potential new talent joining major league rosters a little earlier than usual this year. Perhaps it’s because of the elimination of the second MLB trade deadline since teams know that they can’t add anyone outside of the organization via trade — or maybe it’s just my imagination — but I do feel like there are a few new interesting names to look at.  Hopefully this will be even more true over the next five weeks, and for now, let’s do what we do here and take a look at some players that might be on the radar of NL-only, AL-only, and other deep-leaguers.

Greetings, deep-leaguers!  We’ve now officially hit mid-August, and if you’re fighting for a money spot in one of your fantasy baseball leagues, every decision you make and every day’s worth of stats probably seem magnified.  One or two bad starts (thanks, Trevor Bauer and Cole Hamels!) can cost you crucial ERA and WHIP points that you’ve been slowing but surely building up in a roto league, or sink your head-to-head week completely.  You may not be able to control how major league baseball players pitch, but it’s as important as ever to try to keep your team as strong as possible and to take advantage of trying to grab a few counting stats where you can.  On that note, let’s look at a few players that might be of interest in NL-only, AL-only, and other deep leagues.

One of the downsides, if you will, of the deep league format, is that it can be difficult to impossible to improve your team.  Things can feel especially frustrating at this time of year, especially if you have holes in your lineup and nowhere to turn to fill them.  Instead of completing ignoring my more disappointing teams, though, I like to pay a little extra attention to them in August and September.  If nothing else, you might come across a recent call-up or a now-under-the-radar post hype prospect that – even if it’s too late for your team in 2019 – might be a player that is worth knowing more about as your re-group for fantasy baseball in 2020 and beyond.  No, there aren’t a ton of exciting free agents out there to add to an NL or AL-only team, but let’s take a look at a handful of names that could be of some potential deep league interest, both for the rest of the season and in some cases, possibly even for the future.

The trade deadline has passed, the deals are done, and those of us who spent the better part of Wednesday glued to social media can now move on with our lives.  Hopefully the deadline brought some deals that pleased you from a fantasy standpoint, because we’ve still got eight weeks of baseball left — time to press on and put your nose to the fantasy baseball grindstone.  Which brings us to why we’re here:  to look at a handful of names that might be of interest to those of us in NL-only, AL-only, and other deep leagues.

Here we are deep-league friends, finally less than a week away from the MLB trade deadline, which also means we are two-thirds of the way through the fantasy baseball season. Here’s hoping this point in the season finds you with at least one team still in the hunt for a fantasy title or money finish, as we look to more names that might be of interest to those of us in NL-only, AL-only and other deep leagues.

Hello again friends, and welcome back to the place within Razzball where we discuss baseball players that are completely off the radar of “normal” fantasy baseball owners, interesting only to those of us in the deepest of leagues.  Let’s get right to it and take a look at a handful of players that may be on the radar for those in NL-only, AL-only, and other deep leagues.
