With rosters expanding from 25 to up to 40 players, the waiver/free agent pool has grown considerably in fantasy leagues. Teams have brought up veterans to provide depth in pennant races, while clubs that are looking to next year take a look at prospects. With fantasy races coming down to the wire, its important to judge just who is going to get quality playing time in September. Texas teenage phenom Jurickson Profar is clearly the cream of the crop, already contributing, the infielder has a huge future. Stephen Strasburg has two starts left, Washington brings up his replacement and a surge of players return from the disabled list.
A new week and eight new players for your review. We have four pitchers, including former All-Star Tim Lincecum who inexplicably lost his way in the season's first half. Our featured reliever seemed to be banished to setup for life, but K'Rod is again the man! Our four hitters include a white hot veteran and our sleeper pick of the week.
