Top 10 Third Basemen 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 Third Basemen…

 

1. Jose Ramirez – CLE – 2B, 3B (99%)

.423 AVG, 8 R, 5 HR, 11 RBI, 1 SB

Season Stats: (94 GP) .302 AVG, 68 R, 29 HR, 70 RBI, 20 SB

Ramirez is a superstar. No denying it after this season. A legit 5 category top tier contributor and he continues to keep it up with 5 home runs last week.

 

2. Alex Bregman – HOU – 3B, SS (99%)

.385 AVG, 8 R, 3 HR, 7 RBI, 0 SB

Season Stats: (96 GP) .288 AVG, 67 R, 20 HR, 64 RBI, 8 SB

Bregman is another batter who’s picked up the pace over the last few weeks. He is getting into the rhythm as the season continues and he starts to flex his power numbers.

 

3. Anthony Rendon – WAS (96%)

.333 AVG, 7 R, 3 HR, 6 RBI, 0 SB

Season Stats: (75 GP) .285 AVG, 44 R, 15 HR, 45 RBI, 0 SB

In his typical fashion, Rendon is quietly putting up another great season. While speed has never been a part of his game, he has shown the above average contact skills for years now, along with a few 20 plus home run seasons.

 

4. Travis Shaw – MIL (90%)

.276 AVG, 4 R, 3 HR, 5 RBI, 1 SB

Season Stats: (91 GP) .245 AVG, 45 R, 18 HR, 55 RBI, 1 SB

Shaw’s batting average took a dip since last year, and that could be due in part to his increased fly ball rate and very, very low BABIP. The power is still evident, but the average might not be in the long term.

 

5. Maikel Franco – PHI (46%)

.267 AVG, 5 R, 3 HR, 7 RBI, 0 SB

Season Stats: (85 GP) .269 AVG, 31 R, 13 HR, 47 RBI, 0 SB

Perhaps motivated by trade rumors, Franco put up three home runs last week. His average has been solid this season and the power about average for Franco. We’ll see if he continues to play in Phillie by the end of the year.

 

6. Brian Anderson – MIA – 3B, OF (51%)

.370 AVG, 5 R, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 0 SB

Season Stats: (97 GP) .288 AVG, 55 R, 8 HR, 49 RBI, 2 SB

Anderson has been one of the lone bright spots in the Marlins lineup. Despite not having much power, he does have great contact ability, and has been hitting for a solid average with decent counting stats despite being on the Marlins.

 

7. Nolan Arenado – COL (99%)

.409 AVG, 5 R, 1 HR, 5 RBI, 0 SB

Season Stats: (90 GP) .312 AVG, 63 R, 23 HR, 68 RBI, 2 SB

Arendao may be frustrated at his team’s results lately, but he is certainly not having an offensive season to be frustrated by. He hit over .400 with a homer in last week’ contests.

 

8. Matt Duffy – 2B, 3B (17%)

.458 AVG, 5 R, 0 HR, 2 RBI, 1 SB                                

Season Stats: (80 GP) .317 AVG, 33 R, 4 HR, 27 RBI, 7 SB

Duffy is quietly putting up a great average with a sneaky few steals, a great late round target if you’re specifically looking for average on your team.

 

9. Matt Carpenter – STL – 1B, 2B, 3B (87%)

.353 AVG, 4 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI, 0 SB

Season Stats: (89 GP) .263 AVG, 47 R, 19 HR, 43 RBI, 0 SB

Carpenter is showing that his super cold start to the season was more like a fluke, and he has caught up with the rest of the pack, going into the break with 30 home runs potential this season.

 

10. Ian Happ – CHC – 2B, 3B, OF (45%)

.267 AVG, 5 R, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 0 SB

Season Stats: (82 GP) .256 AVG, 38 R, 11 HR, 26 RBI, 4 SB

Happ has been incredibly frustrating for fantasy owners this season, between slumps and playing time. This past week, he worked out of both issues and contributed a home run and a decent average, showing he still has potential despite a lack of playing time.
