As scrutinized as the first couple of weeks of the fantasy baseball season are. There are still some solid players that are playing above expectations that go unnoticed. Some of them are old hats that have made a strong comeback, while others are just rising to the occasion for the first time. Each fantasy baseball team has different needs and some of these players can fill those needs for their potential owners.
Travis Hafner – UT/DH – Cleveland Indians
Hafner has been zeroed in all season and looks like the old Pronk that we all used to know and love. While he may not keep this up the entire season you cannot ignore his .348/.395/.580 slash line so far. With the way all the Indians are playing right now, Hafner is a must-own must-start player until he proves otherwise. Keep in mind though that he only qualifies at the UT position in most standard fantasy baseball leagues.
Peter Bourjos – OF – Los Angeles Angels
Bourjos is not going to keep up his current batting average (.301), but he possess the rare speed and power combination that every fantasy baseball owner values. He is a threat to steal a base every time he is on and owns a .849 OPS so far this season and has turned it up lately. Hitting in front of guys like Bobby Abreu, Tori Hunter and Vernon Wells in the Angels lineup should net him a lot of runs scored this season as well.
