Fantasy players have sought

Ah, rookies. Fantasy players have sought them out like fountains of youth for years, often resulting in utter disappointment and frustration. But fear not, fantasy players, because there are bargains to be had by going young in your lineup. If you’re playing in a Daily Fantasy Sports league, these players provide excellent match-ups against veterans who have no scouting reports to study… and can become valuable pickup-and-trade bargaining chips if you jump on the bandwagon early enough in full-year leagues. So, which prospects should be on your radar? Here are a few potential bargains playing in their first season in the big leagues that will help you Daily Fantasy Sports league.
BATTERS: Justin Durant Jersey
Jason Heyward, OF, Atlanta. We’ll start off the list with the biggest rookie success of the season. Heyward didn’t have to start the season in Triple A, and has put up big numbers because of it. With 10 home runs and 38 RBI, his respectable .274 average looks even more palatable. He’s hit a bit of a slump lately, so jump on him now while his value is down… you won’t regret it.
Buster Posey, C/1B, San Francisco. The much-heralded catcher prospect recently made the jump to the bigs, and San Francisco’s management has made it clear that he’s there to stay. Posey went 6-9 in his first two major league games, and his average hasn’t dipped much since, entering the weekend batting a ridiculous .478. That average will dip a bit, but Posey has some power potential too. If you can pick him up for a low price—maybe a couple of bench players—you’ll see your averages rise considerably… at least until pitchers start figuring him out.
Michael Stanton, OF, Florida. This kid hasn’t hit the big leagues yet, but Florida’s farm system has churned out a ton of solid prospects in recent years and he has the numbers to back it up. He has 20 homers in Double-A and seems to be ready to make the jump to the majors some time soon. Expect an average around .260 with some respectable home run and RBI totals when he does get the call.
Kila Ka'aihue, 1B, Kansas City. Good luck spelling his name, and good luck getting him out. Ka’aihue is batting .346 at AAA-Omaha and was briefly called up earlier this year. The Royals weren’t ready for him, but when he does stick with the big leagues, he’ll be a solid fantasy player; he is averaging more than one homer per four games in Triple-A.
Ike Davis, 1B, New York Mets. You want power? You got it. Davis’ batting average is pretty low (that’s normal for a rookie batter) but he has been mauling the ball lately. I mean 5 homers in the past month, the same as Albert Pujols and Vernon Wells, and he just went 4 for 4 with 3 runs scored in a game against Florida. He’s got great protection in the lineup and Justin Durant NFL Jersey a solid ceiling. If you play in a keeper league, this kid is a must have.
