The show marches on and we’re getting down to the final stretch of the regular season. That means we should take another look at the projections so you can make the needed moves to put your team over the top and bring home that chip. Below is the scoring format used to calculate the point totals.

Runs Scored (R) 1

Total Bases (TB)  1

Runs Batted In (RBI) 1

Walks (BB) 1

Strikeouts (K) -1

Stolen Bases (SB) 1

This time I included roster percentages so we can see if there’s anyone who might be available. With the top 100, most are long gone but there are a few guys who could be out there. And since every league is different it’s always a good idea to check the wire in case there are any surprise options available.

So what jumps out from these projections? Remember that these are solely based on what guys will do from this point going forward, not what they’ve done so far. The top looks similar to the second half projections but there are always a few surprises.

Corey Seager is not just the top shortstop, he comes roaring all the way up to the top 5. Hopefully you were able to keep your team afloat while he was on the shelf because he’s here to carry you all the way.

Eloy Jimenez is finally healthy and back in the lineup. He is primed to deliver on the hype that surrounded him going into the season. He’s got the big bat that we love to see and is in the midst of a power binge with a couple of double dong nights and he put one in the corn as I write this.

Mike Moustakas is pretty high in the ranks but I worry that this is an absolute best-case scenario projection for him. He seems to be in a platoon for playing time which keeps him from making more of an impact. If he plays every day I can see him hitting this projection, I’m just not sure that’s in the cards.

Carlos Santana should be universally rostered in points leagues. He’s a stud in this format and yet I feel like he’s still underrated.

Joey Gallo takes quite a leap up the ranks with his move to New York. He’s streaky but when he makes contact the ball tends to go a long way. He gives the Yanks a lefty bat that they desperately needed which should find him in a prime spot in the order.

Didi Gregorious is out there to help you at short. His season numbers haven’t been pretty but he should round into form down the stretch.

Fernando Tatis Jr should be back on the field soon but his injury scares me. The game is more fun when he’s on the field and I truly hope he’s back at full strength but… If you still have a chance to move him, explore it.

Ke’Bryan Hayes is due to heat up and could be an impact player the rest of the way. The young gun has the potential to be a difference-maker.

Anthony Santander has been hotter than the sun lately and he should continue to be a very valuable piece on your roster for the rest of the season. He’s been putting up points all season and should be on more rosters than he currently is.

Brandon Belt is another guy whose value sees a big jump in points leagues. He sneaks into the top 100 with his return from the IL. I am interested to see how the Giants manage playing time with the guys returning from injury but Belt is definitely worth grabbing while we wait to see how it shakes out.

J.P. Crawford is just inside the top 100 and that means he should not be available in roughly 70% of leagues. Don’t sleep on him.

Paul DeJong squeaks onto the list despite his underwhelming season numbers. Despite that, he’s still scoring fantasy points and that’s why we’re here.

Miguel Rojas has the leadoff spot for the time being and he’s doing his best to hold onto it. I’ve mentioned him before as a guy to add and this only backs that up. He’s way too available for a guy who projects to be a top 100 hitter the rest of the way.
