2017 RECAP

Record: 13 - 6

Last Season’s Fantasy Highlights

George Springer arrived to provide hope for the future and promptly smacked 20 homers in less than 300 at-bats. Chris Carter provided even more power, blasting 37 home runs in 2014 and Jose Altuve continued to be the best player on the team as he raked to the tune of a .341 average and stole 56 bases. On the pitching front, Dallas Keuchel came out of nowhere to be a fantasy darling. The ground ball specialist won many folks fantasy titles by throwing 200 innings of 2.93 ERA/1.17 WHIP ball.

What Has Changed?

Dexter Fowler decamped to the windy city and was promptly replaced by Colby Rasmus. Evan Gattis arrived to use his bat, not his catcher’s mitt. Luis Valbuena is now in town to challenge for the 3B job. Jed Lowrie has returned to reclaim SS in southern Texas. Finally, Luke Gregerson now owns the 9th inning (assuming he can hold off fellow newcomer Pat Neshek and incumbent Chad Qualls).

What to Expect:

Expect Springer and Carter to hit for big power but no average. Do not expect Jonathan Singleton to help your fantasy team as he could easily lose out to the glut of 1B/OF/DH types in Houston as he attempts to make contact at any semblance of a reasonable rate. Finally, do not rely too heavily on Jason Castro as his contact and K-rates say his .222 average from 2014 is much more realistic than .276 from 2013.

This Year’s Surprise:

Robbie Grossman will find his way into the lineup and provide value for the minimum draft day price. Grossman hit .337 in Triple-A last year after an awful major league start. He then returned to the big leagues and hit .282 over the last 30 days in 103 at-bats. Keep an especially close eye on him on OBP leagues as he as demonstrated strong walk rates at every level.
