Niko Goodrum (1B/2B/SS/3B/OF, DET) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups


BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 22% of Yahoo! leagues

ANALYSIS: Uber-utility man Niko Goodrum has flashed a nice combination of power and speed this season for the Detroit Tigers. He currently has six home runs and seven stolen bases in 64 games, putting him on pace for close to a 20/20 season if he continues to play nearly every day - like he has been.

The .232/.316/.397 slash line isn't really helping anyone, and his 27.1% strikeout rate is definitely a concern even though it comes with a nice 10.8% walk rate. As such, Goodrum isn't someone you should be racing to pick up in 10-teamers.

However, his versatility and combination of power and speed make him the kind of fantasy asset that you want as the last person on your bench in 12-teamers, as he can fill in anywhere and is capable of providing a home run or a steal on any given day.
