Angels outfielder Jo Adell was a key sleeper heading into the season for many fantasy managers, with the expectation that this could be the year he delivered on the promise that once made him one of the top prospects in the game. Conversely, Taylor Ward was barely rostered heading into the season, an afterthought in the Angels outfield. But with about a month of games in the books, it's Ward who's a top-five outfielder in points leagues and now universally rostered, while Adell has been demoted to Triple-A and is available in almost half of CBS Sports leagues. I'd keep an eye on Adell's Triple-A production and be ready to re-add him to your benches if he gets on a hot streak, but for now, Ward is looking like one of the best waiver-wire pickups of the season.
Before you determine which players you should target on the Fantasy baseball waiver wire ahead of Week 6, you NEED to see what R.J. White has to say.
If you're a regular subscriber to SportsLine, you probably know White from dominating NFL picks for years, but did you know he actually got his start in sports media as a fantasy baseball analyst? He even finished No. 1 among all experts for his draft rankings the first year FantasyPros tracked MLB expert accuracy on their site. White has continued to excel at season-long and dynasty Fantasy baseball formats, and this year he's sharing his Fantasy baseball expertise with SportsLine subscribers.
Now, he's revealed the best widely available free agents ahead of Week 6. One player to target on the Week 6 waiver wire: Brewers first baseman Rowdy Tellez. "We highlighted Tellez as a deeper league option in our first waiver wire column of the season ahead of Week 3, noting that the team was willing to stick with him in the lineup against a lefty, meaning he could wind up playing more than previously anticipated ... With Tellez a fixture in the Brewers lineup, he's a must-roster in Fantasy," White says.
White is also all-in on a barely rostered reliever with MASSIVE upside! You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before making any Week 5 waiver wire claims.
So which starting pitchers are worth scooping off the waiver wires in all leagues? And which widely-available players at each position are options to consider in deeper leagues? ...
