Before setting your Week 12 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 A's shortstop Jurickson Profar, saying he'd finish inside the top five shortstops despite being started in just 54 percent of leagues. The result: Profrar recorded five hits, three RBIs and one run scored in Oakland's three-game series against the Angels. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a huge week.
Now the model, which simulates every pitch and every at-bat 10,000 times, has revealed its rankings for Week 12 (June 10-16).
One player the model is high on this week: Nationals second baseman Brian Dozier. SportsLine's model ranks Dozier as the No. 11 second baseman for Week 12 even though he's owned in just 52 percent of leagues. He's a player you can pick up and start with confidence this week.
And a massive shocker: Angels third baseman David Fletcher, a top-10 player at his position according to market value, stumbles big-time and doesn't even crack the top 25. He's a player to consider putting on the bench.
The model is also calling for a surprising catcher you aren't even thinking about to finish in the top 10 of its Week 12 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 catcher could lead you to Fantasy glory? ... Join SportsLine now to get Fantasy baseball rankings for every single position, and see which surprising catcher comes out of nowhere to crack the top 10, all from the model that out-performed experts big time last season!
