Believe it or not, by the end of this week, we will be at the quarter way point of the season. By now, you should have a pretty good idea of where you are strong... and where you are weak. Each week, I try to find that delicate balance between those in deep mixed or AL/NL only formats and those in 10-12 team mixed leagues. There is a huge difference in who is available and the level of player that can help your particular situation. I am staying away from the obvious pickups and adding a few gems for deeper or league specific formats.
The amount of injuries across MLB has been nothing short of ridiculous so far this year. It seems as though players are getting soft and missing gobs of time due to blisters and the flu. This is creating some very interesting situations in fantasy baseball leagues. Check your league standings and I will all but guarantee you that the healthiest team(s) are on top. With this knowledge it’s now important to not only look for the best skills when searching for waiver wire pickups but also for durability. Getting the most games played out of your club is so important yet underrated in fantasy baseball. So, with this in mind let’s look at some players who are out on the waiver wire who can help you rack up numbers game in and game out.
