Fantasy Baseball 2015: Weekend Sleepers 7/31
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
July 31, 2015
It’s Friday, and around here that means it’s time once again to check out some of the notable sleeper options heading into the fantasy baseball weekend. Let’s take a closer look at the numbers and see if anyone makes sense for your team in the upcoming games.
Taylor Jungmann, SP, Milwaukee Brewers: Jungmann is on a pretty good run right now, and he’s under-owned in most fantasy formats. He’s coming off a loss in Arizona, but only allowed two earned on four hits in that one.
Jungmann hasn’t allowed more than two earned since June 19, and is 4-1 in his last seven appearances. He’ll face the Cubs at home today.

Matt Wisler, SP, Atlanta Braves: Let’s stick on the mound for a moment and visit with Wisler. He’s coming off a two-earned, seven-hit win in St. Louis, which makes him 4-0 in his last five games.
Wisler hasn’t lost since June 25, and has been getting some good run support in his starts. He gets a pretty matchup today in Philadelphia and should do well.
Aaron Hicks, OF, Minnesota Twins: Hicks has popped onto the fantasy baseball radar over the past two series, where he managed 10 hits, six runs, a homer and eight RBI in just five games. He kept it going yesterday with three hits, two runs, a solo homer and a steal.
Hicks has been pretty darn stellar since coming off the DL early this month and is flashing some nice power/speed potential. The Mariners series continues through the weekend.
Chase Headley, 1B/3B, New York Yankees: It’s kind of hard to believe Headley isn’t owned in more leagues out there. Heading into last night’s game, he had a seven-game hit streak going, with nine runs, a homer and nine RBI in that frame. He extended it with a hit and an RBI yesterday.
Headley has been spitting out RBI with a nice regularity this season, and shows no signs of slowing down on this road trip. He’s on the South Side for the White Sox this weekend.
Didi Gregorius, 2B/SS, New York Yankees: Let’s stick in the Big Apple as we finish up with Gregorius today. Heading into last night’s game, he had a three-appearance hit streak going, with eight hits, four runs, a homer and seven RBI in that span. He logged another hit yesterday.
Gregorius is, of course, a defense-first player. That said, he is capable of some big games here and there. He’s a risk/reward play, but could pay off this weekend.
