Two months into baseball season, and it’s time to assess what categories your fantasy team needs to improve—and win. On offense, you want to find players that can help your team batting average, for example, or move you up a few places in steals. For the pitching side, do you need more wins or saves? Figuring out now where the biggest gains are to be had in your league will make all the difference through the summer months.
A lot of fantasy baseball owners like to grab a rookie early and wait for him to pan out on the field. That can take all season, though. Sometimes, it’s best to grab the non-flashy veterans with the steady statistics instead, because at least they’re playing every day—and playing at a level you can rely on to win your league.
