MLB: Jeff Zimmerman's Fantasy Grab Bag

MLB: Jeff Zimmerman's Fantasy Grab Bag

Regret After the Euphoria?

This section focuses on what I consider questionable/suspect adds from the past weekend in the NFBC RotoWire Online Championship. These are 12-team roto leagues (AVG) with 23-man active rosters and seven bench spots. 

The idea is to look to see if anyone was over-bid on (subjective, and honestly, not likely at this point in the season) or has little chance to live up to Sunday-night expectations.

Brandon Marsh: He is on one of the craziest and most unsustainable heaters I've seen in a long time. His current strikeout rate is 39.2%, which normally gets you demoted to Triple-A so you can "work" on lowering the number (See Jo Adell). Instead, he's posting a .468 BABIP and when linked up with his 9.2 BB%, puts his on-base rate at .340. And he's doing all this with almost no power (one HR, .110 ISO, .374 SLG). 

Tyler Gilbert: I get that he's thrown a no-hitter and is in the middle
