Justin Smoak (1B, MIL) - Week 1 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of leagues ANALYSIS: Justin Smoak is a big winner thanks to the universal DH and the new inter-divisional schedule.

Justin Smoak (1B, MIL) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~ 300 CURRENT ADP: ~349 overall ANALYSIS: Justin Smoak's ADP is likely to start trending upward once the universal DH becomes a reality, but that doesn't change his sleeper status.

Rhys Hoskins (1B, PHI) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleepers

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~100 CURRENT ADP: ~120 overall ANALYSIS: Rhys Hoskins had a rough 2019 but not as bad as most people are making it out to be.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: The Red Sox replaced veteran Steve Pearce with Sam Travis as their short-side platoon bat off the bench, a valuable role as a lefty smasher that Boston has often utilized.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ team leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS:  If there’s a word to describe Niko Goodrum, it’s versatile.

Yandy Diaz (1B/3B, TB) - Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 35% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS:  Diaz is becoming more and more popular and should find himself over 50% owned very soon.

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 35% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS:  It doesn’t look like Garrett Cooper intends to slow down anytime soon.
