Daily Fantasy Baseball Notes – Monday, July 16th

Since daily fantasy baseball is very much a game of streaks, I think it’s utterly important to keep an eye on who’s on a hot/cold streak. For instance…if you pick up the right second basemen on hot streaks throughout the year (and concurrently drop them when they get cold), you can essentially piece together a Dustin Pedroia-like stat-line from your second base spot. I’m not saying it will be easy, but you’ll be able to identify the right guys to pick up (and drop) if follow along and pay attention to this feature over the course of the season.

For those of you that are familiar with this column from last year, I’ve got an extra special treat for you. I’ve been lucky enough to get a chance to expand this column on FantasyPros911.com to include injury notes, position battles, closer updates, pitcher start/sits, and other helpful info. Here’s a quick look at the good ole’ 5 Good Nights/5 Bad Nights below, but if you want the extras I just mentioned…take a stroll over to the full version at FantasyPros911.com (and take a look at the rest of the site while you’re there.
