Fantasy Baseball Value at ADP 300 or Higher
Allow myself to introduce...myself. I have over 10 years experience playing fantasy. I love and consume everything related to fantasy baseball. I’m grateful for the opportunity to share my thoughts with you through Fighting Chance Fantasy. Today I’m going to write about 5 players with an ADP over 300 that can help you bring home the coveted fantasy baseball title. (All ADP numbers come from Yahoo)
Steven Souza Jr, OF, Arizona Diamondbacks (ADP: 302). He is one season removed from a 30 HR/16 SB season. He’s projected to bat clean up for the rebuilding Diamondbacks. He won’t help you in average, but he can produce some nice counting stats as a 5th outfielder. Injuries and the signing of Adam Jones are a concern, but this guy has shown for a long time he is capable of being a big time bopper in the Major Leagues. A full season from Souza can get you 25+ HRs and 10 SBs quite the find after the first 300 picks..
Brian Anderson, 3B/OF, Miami Marlins (ADP: 306). He’s projected to bat 3rd for the bottom of the barrel Marlins, but someone has to put up stats for them! You won’t receive a lot of power from Anderson, but he can be a solid source of productivity with a decent average and enough RBIs from the Corner Infielder position in deeper leagues. He can also be a sufficient late round grab if you’re one of the gamblers taking Vlad Jr early.
Jorge Soler, OF, Kansas City Royals (ADP: 308). Soler seems to always find his way on a sleeper list with his power potential. In 2016 he cracked 12 homers in just 86 games, and in 2017 he hit 24 more in AAA. He’s projected to bat 5th for the bottom feeding Royals. He has plenty of upside with minimal risk past the 300 mark. He can easily knock out 25 taters this season. If you’re into that sorta thing.
Johan Camargo, 3B, Atlanta Braves (ADP: 352). Look for Camargo to fill the super utility role for the defending NL East Champions Atlanta Braves. He will be used similar to Marwin Gonzalez last season. He should easily get over 300 ABs filling in at 2B, SS, 3B and OF. You can slot him nearly everywhere on your roster with a projected 50/15/50/.275 stat line. And let's not act like Josh Donaldson at third base is the picture of health. If he happens to go down, Camargo would immediately step in to guaranteed every day at-bats.
Touki Toussaint, SP, Atlanta Braves (ADP: 560). Toussaint has an incredible baseball name and should make Atlanta’s starting rotation. Although you don’t accrue stats for cool names, he shows a lot of upside as a late round pick. He has shown better than average strikeout potential, and he was absolutely dominant last year at AAA. He wasn't amazing, but he certainly held his own in his run with the big league Braves down the stretch. He’s currently only 10% owned and certainly worth a flyer.
Thanks for reading.
