This is it. This is what you start prepping for in November every year: the chance to play for a title. If you have gotten yourself to this position, congratulations, but it’s not over yet for many fantasy players. Looking for one guy to push you over the top this week? Here are some low-rostered players that could help you grab those last points this week. Good luck!
Nick Gordon (rostered in 12% of Online Draft Champions): What a week for Gordon with two home runs and two steals while knocking in six runs, scoring three, and hitting .381. Many people will be picking him up this week and using him at the MI spot (eligible at 2B and SS) and also the outfield. These are the types of acquisitions that can win you the league this week. Pounce on him if you need help.
Phil Gosselin (rostered in 12% of Online Draft Champions): Gosselin continues to get at-bats in Los Angeles, often hitting third in a poor lineup. That being said, he’s done fairly well in the roll: seven homers, 47 RBI, and three steals while hitting .269. He won’t hurt you at a number of positions (eligible at both corner infield positions and the outfield) and had seven RBI last week.
Tyler Wade (rostered in 15% of Online Draft Champions): This is a pure speed play. Despite limited at-bats the last two weeks, Wade has chipped in with two steals each week. This is a desperation play if one or two steals could make a difference for you.
Eli Morgan (rostered in 6% of Online Draft Champions): Morgan has made the most of his opportunity with Cleveland the last few weeks. He has two wins and has surrendered only one earned run in two weeks. He finishes his season with a start against the moribund Texas Rangers this coming Thursday, which should be a good matchup for him.
Lucas Sims (rostered in 17% of Online Draft Champions): Would you expect anything less from a Sims truther? But hear my testimony: do you need strikeouts and ratio help this last week? Sims has given up two earned runs in September while compiling 22 strikeouts in 12.2 innings. Zero walks. That is help you can use as you climb to the top this week.
