All Star voting is in full swing for the MLB (go vote for your favorites) so lets turn our attention to the fantasy baseball points league All Stars. I don’t want this list to just be a look at the top 3 at each position because you can check that on whatever platform you’re playing on. Plus I want to recognize some performances from guys no one was talking about during draft season. And it’s my list so I can write about whoever I want. Let me know who you disagree with below or on Twitter. Hopefully you were able to snag a few of these guys for your squad.

So without further ado… I preset my 2022 Fantasy Baseball Points League All Stars.

Time to play hot or not. Well… mostly we’ll just be playing who’s hot and who’s hotter. It’s more fun anyways. I’ve always been a fan of looking at the past couple weeks when deciding who to add to my team. It’s still a small sample size but it shows a bit of consistency. Everyone would love to grab a league winner of the wavier wire but sometimes all you need is a guy who can give you a quick boost. Fantasy baseball is a grind so just take it one week at a time. And bury your opponent in an avalanche of points.

And we are back for another heat check. No matter how totally awesome your team is it can always be better. So let’s dive right in to who’s hot and see if they can help you out. One of the past week’s hottest hitters has been Santiago Espinal.  He really shouldn’t be this widely available given that he’s eligible at second and third base and is hovering around the top 12 at both positions. Did I mention that he’s in the middle of a monster stretch at the plate? His power is on the rise and he batted .310 last season so we know he can hit. He’s already been a guy who should at least be on your bench and he could be even better. Advanced stats say that he’s actually been getting a little bit unlucky with his batting average and it should be a few ticks north of .300. I like that he doesn’t strike out a ton and that the Jays lineup is strong surrounding him which should boost his production. I would be shocked if his roster percentage doesn’t spike after the week he just had so you’ll likely have to act fast if you want what he brings to the plate.

Studs are starting to look like studs and most of the hot wavier guys have already been snapped up. That means we need to start looking at some names that may have flown under the radar in your league but can provide an immediate boost to your team. This is where you make your move folks, finding the diamond in the rough, or at least the guys that are better than the rest of your league thinks they are. And away we go…

Grab those bats, it’s that special time of the week to check in on some possible waiver adds that can take your squad to the next level. The weather is heating up and so are the power hitters. Maybe it’s the ball, maybe it’s the weather. Or maybe it’s that two months into the season guys are finally getting into the swing of things and finding their groove. Marh/April saw 574 home runs and a .231 batting average, with almost a week left in May we’re already up to 697 home runs and batting average is up to .244. That’s good news for fantasy managers and the points should keep flowing. Summer is upon us so get ready for some fireworks.

Did you know that Wilmer Flores has two brothers named Wilmer? So when he introduces himself and some of his brothers, he says “Hi. I’m Wilmer. This is my brother Wilmer. And this is my other brother Wilmer.” Why couldn’t they be named Larry and Daryl! The Wilmer Flores that plays for the San Francisco […]

What is up party people? The grind never ends and that’s what wins fantasy leagues. It’s mid May so we have about 6ish weeks of real games to pour over. By now your studs have started to separate themselves from the solid performers and guy or two that you want to poke with a stick to see if they’re even alive. Peep your roster, see who’s hot and who’s not. Then replace your worst players with the guys below. Simple.

I usually prefer to focus on hitters because they offer more reliable production and I like to stream starters. However, that doesn’t change the fact that starting pitching is a key part of your roster. So much can vary from start to start and that’s where Streamonator becomes your best friend. So lets check out the mound and find some reinforcements for the squad. Now obviously you can’t stream all your pitchers, there are transaction limits. How then to find a starting pitcher who can help you for more than just one start. In points leagues you want innings and strikeouts. Wins are worth a bunch of points but it’s a tough stat to bank on, especially since analytics lead to managers pulling their starters earlier. Guys who make it 7 innings can be stars, especially if they can give you at least a K per.

The current innings leader at this stage of the season is Frankie Montas with 43 while Carlos Rodon leads the league with 53 Ks. Both guys are nowhere near a wavier wire but it will provide a barometer for what constitutes a good total in either category. With that in mind, let’s break down potential adds into guys logging innings, and guys racking up Ks.
