    Best Fantasy 2nd half performers?

    Who are some players that completely rip the charts up in the second half? I am in a league where i am 10 gb back of the final playoff spot with only 8 weeks left of the season.

    So the question is, who to get and who to get rid of, from my roster:

    My team consists of currently:

    C-Miguel Montero
    1B-Prince Fielder
    2B-Dan Uggla
    3B-Alex Rodriguez
    SS-Ian Desmond
    OF-Micheal Bourn
    OF-Matt Holiday
    OF-Micheal Cuddyer
    UTIL-David Freese
    UTIL-Tyler Colvin
    DL-Jacoby Ellsbury
    DL-Lance Berkman
    DL-Troy Tulowitzki

    SP-Zach Grienke
    SP-Jordan Zimmermann
    SP-A.J. Burnett
    SP-Doug Fister

    RP-Kenley Jansen
    RP-Fernando Rodney
    RP-Craig Kimbrel
    RP-Addison Reed
    RP-Brett Myers
    RP-Jonathan Papelbon
    RP-Bobby Parnell

    • Not sure who's available to acquire so I'll talk about current roster! 1)Guy's right about Tulo so he'd be 1 to go.Maybe someone not as astute as you might even trade for him. 2) I'd watch Desmond closely. I've heard numerous reports about his oblique injury bothering him and he may be a DL candidate so you might want to acquirea decent backup SS(Drew,Bloomquist,Cabrera in SD,etc) 3) I'd see if someone might want to deal for Meyers/Parnell. You have alot of closers and these 2 might get you that SS while your other 5 are really good so keep them unless getting some extra help might cost you 1 of them. 4) I'd watch Colvin closely. Always been a good prospect but not like this. He might be your best TRADE BAIT right now. You've got alot of power in your lineup so someone in you league might bite on his hot streak and cough up someone you need. 5) Your weak point right now is SP!!!!! I always like alot of pitching to pick and choose from but that's me. I'd try to acquire at least a good SP3 or SP4(or a lower SP2) if you can! If you can get 2,even better. Maybe a decent 3 and 4. I'd roll out Tulo,Colvin and Meyers/Parnell and see what happens. Maybe someone with a weak OF and not a strong Bullpen. It might take Colvin/Reed to grab a SP or Colvin/Rodney but you have Meyers you can keep. Sorry about 2nd half performers but I'd rather not speculate and be wrong for you. He was right about LaRoche! I have him now and I'm worried he might have expended all his worth the first 7-8 weeks but he's still hanging tough. I added Rizzo and he's off to a good start,even on the road/vs.lefties. I'm in an NL only so I don't want to comment to much about AL. Hey good luck and I hope this helps a little!

    • You have to explain your point system. Why do you have so many RP and your SP are terrible overall. If your that far back of making the playoffs I would drop Tulo for anyone available unless you have 3 DL spots. You will be done by the time he gets back.

    • find an easy way to get adam laroche he is always great in the second half
