Late Season Fantasy Baseball Pickups

Fantasy Football has taken over but I'm still very much in contention for a fantasy baseball title in 4 out of my 5 leagues. We won't talk about the other league. Especially when that team deals with Evan Longoria, Matt Kemp and Giancarlo Stanton injuries all year. But we're not going to talk about that today. If we did talk about it, I would tell you how everyone else on the team exceeded expectations and my big name guys can't figure out how to slide (Longoria) or can't rehab the proper way (Kemp). Moving on.

I just recently made a handful of pickups that should help my teams down the stretch and in the fantasy playoffs. These are some of my newly acquired players:

 

Jhoulys Chacin COL SP
Yes, he's back and yes I picked him up in every league on week before he came off the DL.
Chase Utley PHI 2B
I picked up Utley in one league. He was more of a fill in for me when Infante and Zobrist have days off.
Jonathan Lucroy MIL C
He's cheap production at catcher. I have him backing up Jesus Monteroin my keeper league.
Brett Anderson OAK SP
You think I'm not going to pick him up after ranking him #163 in my Top 250 Keeper Rankings?
Greg Holland KC RP
I needed saves in a couple leagues. He was fair value and by fair value I mean a waiver wire pickup.Tood Frazier CIN 1B
I snagged him in a few leagues two weeks ago. When Votto comes back he'll be dropped.

 

Chris Davis BAL 1B
Yes, I had him when he cranked 3 bombs in one game last week. I am worried he may hit the DL soon.
Brandon Morrow TOR SP
I had to grab him a week before he came off the DL. He had 7 K's in his first start despite getting the loss.If you are curious, I have one final set of rankings that should be coming out within the next few weeks. Expect my next Hitter, Pitcher and Relief Ranks out before the fantasy playoffs get here.Out of my 5 ten team leagues I currently hold the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 4th and 6th spots. I'm still not panicking, I'm built for the postseason. If you don't believe me I have two words for you... Jhoulys Chaaaaaacccciiiiinnnn!!!!!!!!!!!!!Alex Wiesner
