Deep League Quests for No-Name Streakers

I’ve been riding players since the All-Star break that even most baseball fans haven’t heard of. Oeltjen, Pagan, Ellis, Rajai Davis, and others. I’ve been picking them up before they gain popularity or recognition and it’s been paying off.

Sure, I get teased for having no-name players all over my roster but yesterday I picked up Johnny Gomes and Hanigan and they gave me 4 HRs.

I guess the key is looking at splits and riding streaks before they fizzle out. I’ve also been good at dumping players right before they hit slumps. Sure, I’ve been lucky, but after some fantasy baseball experience you can start to sense these things.

I rode Brandon Inge for too long before dropping him. He just hit a walk-off last night and I think he might pick up his HRs again, but I just don’t feel like taking the chance.

It’s the home stretch now and I’m looking forward to see what “no-name” players I’m using on a daily basis.

I’m afraid of pulling the trigger on Derrick Holland tonight versus Boston, but I can’t help myself.
