• Is your league currently in the playoffs? If so this article is perfect for you! Fantasy Baseball is mainly skill but it also takes a fair bit of luck to get the right guys going at the perfect time in August and September. So here’s a few players to get on your team ASAP while also making sure to avoid this one pitcher.

    Add Jake Burger, 3B, Miami Marlins (ESPN 14.6%, Yahoo 47%)

    Jake Burger was already having a breakout season in Chicago before the trade to Miami but he has turned it way up since the deal. Burger had an above-average .806 OPS in Chicago but is posting a fantastic .966 OPS in Miami. He’s already at 27 HR’s on the year and he’s looking like an all-formats option. The AVG leaves a little to be desired at .244 (.366 in 20 games in Miami) but his 63 RBI’s and 53 Runs make up for it. Burger is in the 100th percentile in Max Exit Velocity and 98th percentile in Barrel % via Baseball Savant, meaning he hits the ball harder then practically anyone else in the league. Jake Burger is not a fluke, add in all formats.
