Fantasy Baseball 2015: Weekend Sleepers 5/15
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
May 15, 2015
It’s Friday, and around here that means it’s time to take our weekly look at the trending sleeper options around the world of fantasy baseball. We’ve got our usual crop of intriguing names in store this morning, so let’s check out some of the guys making noise out there.
Chris Young, SP/RP, Kansas City Royals: We’ve talked about Young here and there this week, and with his start coming up today it’s time we looked at him again. He’s coming off a six-inning, three-hit no-decision in Detroit this week.
Young is carrying a 0.78 ERA and a 0.52 WHIP, so he’s definitely been dominant on the season. Check him out ahead of his next start at home against the Yankees today.

Alex Guerrero, 3B/OF, Los Angeles Dodgers: Guerrero had a nice couple of games at the tail end of the Miami series. In those, he logged five hits, three runs and a pair of RBI.
Provided he keeps getting starts--which he will if he maintains pace--Guerrero is definitely worth holding onto, even on a stuffed Dodgers roster. The Colorado series continues through the weekend.
A.J. Ramos, RP, Miami Marlins: Ramos is the hottest reliever on the wire right now (if you can still get him), thanks to his first career save this week on a clean ninth inning against the Dodgers.
The Marlins are still officially a closer-by-committee team, but Ramos seems like the guy who will get most of the opportunities to bag saves. He’s a must-have guy right now if you’re looking for a new RP.
Chase Anderson, SP, Arizona Diamondbacks: Let’s stick on the mound for one more minute and visit with Anderson, who will get his next start today. Even though he doesn’t have any wins yet, he’s thrown pretty well, allowing more than one earned just once in his last four starts.
Anderson is coming off a nice one-earned performance through seven innings against the Padres. If he gets any run support today in Philly, he could get that elusive first win.
Delino DeShields, 2B/OF, Texas Rangers: DeShields burst onto the fantasy scene in the first three games of the Kansas City series, logging five hits, five runs, two steals and two RBI in that frame. He had a hit, a run and an RBI yesterday.
DeShields is probably more of a deeper-league option or a band-aid right now as long as he’s hitting and stealing bases. You’ll have to watch and make sure he’s on the lineup card before each game if you’re going to use him.
