Top 10 Outfielders From Last Week (7/9/18 – 7/15/18)

The fantasy landscape can change drastically over the course of a week and especially with any league (especially deeper ones) it can be difficult to keep track of every performance worth noting.

Here’s a look at standouts over the past week by Outfielders…


1. Mookie Betts – BOS – OF (99%)

.444 AVG, 8 R, 1 HR, 7 RBI, 2 SB

Season Stats: (78 GP) .359 AVG, 79 R, 23 HR, 51 RBI, 18 SB

There is a reason why Mookie is in the AL MVP race, and why we try to compare him to Trout occasionally when we get bored. He’s as close as we have had to another player lately who can do it all. Plus, he’s just a fun player. Doesn’t get much Betts-er (sorry) than that.


2. Carlos Gonzales – COL (56%)

.350 AVG, 9 R, 3 HR, 9 RBI, 1 SB

Season Stats: (76 GP) .280 AVG, 44 R, 11 HR, 41 RBI, 4 SB

CarGo is not having a particularly impressive season, given his past performances, but he is showing signs of life and being a productive outfielder once again. He’s hit into a power streak over the past week, and if he can keep it up he could be a sneaky add. Remember that streak that he went on towards the end of last year?


3. Starling Marte – PIT (97%)

.313 AVG, 6 R, 3 HR, 6 RBI, 3 SB

Season Stats: (85 GP) .285 AVG, 52 R, 13 HR, 44 RBI, 25 SB

Marte’s power was, naturally, in question after the PED suspension, but it seems that he is not suffering too much in the power department. He is a legit threat for power, speed and average, and is extremely valuable in roto.


4. Gregory Polanco – PIT (72%)

.280 AVG, 6 R, 4 HR, 8 RBI, 1 SB

Season Stats: (86 GP) .235 AVG, 49 R, 16 HR, 51 RBI, 4 SB

Marte’s teammate has followed suite in the power department, and Polanco has come alive in the past few weeks. After a massive slump, his power has surged and he’s starting to bring his average out of the gutter, but he still has a long way to go. He has a lot of potential, but has a hard time sustaining success.


5. Kole Calhoun – LAA (12%)

.364 AVG, 7 R, 4 HR, 6 RBI, 0 SB

Season Stats: (75 GP) .187 AVG, 31 R, 9 HR, 26 RBI, 4 SB

Did not think I would be talking about Kole Calhoun after his horrendous start. But anytime an outfielder his 4 home runs in a week he deserves mention. His season line is dreadful, but he’s too hot of a bat right now to ignore, and his defense usually keeps him in the lineup.


6. Stephen Piscotty – OAK  (36%)

.393 AVG, 5 R, 3 HR, 6 RBI, 1 SB

Season Stats: (88 GP) .267 AVG, 43 R, 12 HR, 46 RBI, 1 SB

Piscotty has been clutch for the A’s this season, and it’s been a great storyline after all that he has had to go through with his mother. He’s showing the power that he flashed in St. Louis as a young outfielder and is worth a deep league add, especially since the A’s lineup has been very good, and they look to be buyers at the deadline.


7. Brett Gardner – NYY (66%)

.267 AVG, 7 R, 3 HR, 8 RBI, 1 SB

Season Stats: (81 GP) .254 AVG, 55 R, 9 HR, 33 RBI, 9 SB

Gardy blasted a few clutch bombs over the past week to boost his low season totals. He’s still hitting in the stacked Yankees lineup and has great opportunities for runs, and will chip in a few steals occasionally, even at his age.


8. Michael Brantley – CLE (86%)

.333 AVG, 8 R, 1 HR, 7 RBI, 1 SB                                

Season Stats: (84 GP) .308 AVG, 55 R, 12 HR, 56 RBI, 6 SB

Brantley is on pace to have a solid, healthy season, which is long overdue. Despite missing so much time over the years, his skills have not deteriorated that much, and he has a great hit tool with a solid average and a few steals thrown in.


9. Charlie Blackmon – COL (99%)

.440 AVG, 7 R, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 0 SB

Season Stats: (91 GP) .287 AVG, 73 R, 19 HR, 45 RBI, 5 SB

Blackmon has been a disappointment to some who drafted him in the first round this season. Hitting .440 over a week does help push his average in the right direction, but with his average drop off, most owners are hoping he would at least steal a few more bags. He’s still a top caliber talent, so let’s hope he accelerates into the second half.


10 Giancarlo Stanton – NYY (99%)

.382 AVG, 6 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI, 1 SB

Season Stats: (94 GP) .278 AVG, 58 R, 23 HR, 55 RBI, 3 SB

Stanton seems to have leveled off and is doing well in the Yankees lineup more consistently now. He was a huge second half contributor last year, so it’s completely possible his performance continues to take off now that he seems more comfortable.
