Before setting your Week 9 Fantasy baseball lineups, you need to see what our advanced computer model has to say. When it comes to ranking players, the model beat human experts in Fantasy football last season when there were big differences in ranking. And the model was closest-to-the-hole overall, meaning it best pinpointed where every player would finish each week.
Last week, the model was extremely high on Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco, saying he was the No. 2 starting pitcher even though his market rank was No. 10. The result: Carrasco was absolutely dominant against the White Sox on May 14, throwing seven scoreless innings and striking out six as he provided huge returns for Fantasy baseball players.
Now the model, which simulates every pitch and every at-bat 10,000 times, has revealed its rankings for Week 9 (May 20-26).
One player the model is high on this week: Yankees third baseman Gio Urshela. The model ranks Urshela as the No. 7 third baseman for Week 9 even though his market rank is just No. 22 at his position, and he's owned in just 20 percent of leagues. Pick him up and start him with confidence.
And a massive shocker: Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner, the 10th-best player at his position according to market value, stumbles big-time and doesn't even crack the top 20. He's a player to consider putting on the bench.
The model is also calling for a surprising shortstop you aren't even thinking about to finish in the top 10 of its Week 9 rankings. This pick could be the difference between winning BIG and going home with nothing. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in your lineups.
So who should you sit and start this week? And what surprising shortstop could lead you to Fantasy glory? ... Join SportsLine now to get Fantasy baseball rankings for every single position, and see which surprising shortstop comes out of nowhere to crack the top 10, all from the model that out-performed experts big time last season!
