Top Hitter Streamers and Starts for Fantasy Baseball - Week 24

kyle farmer fantasy baseball rankings draft sleepers MLB injury news

There are only two weeks left of fantasy baseball! It's going to be very sad when the season comes to an end, but the impending end of the season means that these are the most important, and therefore most fun weeks of the year – for those of you still competing, at least.

I have two more "hitter streamers" pieces, so let's make them count!

As always, check out the rest of our fantasy baseball streamers content after you read this piece! Here we goooooo!

Editor's Note: Our incredible team of writers received five total writing awards and 13 award nominations by the Fantasy Sports Writers Association, tops in the industry! Congrats to all the award winners and nominees including Best MLB Series, NFL Series, NBA Writer, PGA Writer and Player Notes writer of the year. Be sure to follow their analysis, rankings and advice all year long, and win big with RotoBaller! Read More!

What Teams Offer The Most Streaming Value?

Two teams play eight games between Monday, September 19, and Sunday, September 25. Those teams are:

  • Dodgers
  • Diamondbacks

There is plenty of fantasy goodness in those two lineups, although they are rostered quite highly as well. In fact, I don't see a single player from those offenses under 50% rostered worth recommending strongly (note: you should absolutely add Jake McCarthy if he's somehow still available in your league). So we must look further!

We have a bunch of teams playing seven games next week:

  • Astros
  • Rays
  • Giants
  • Twins
  • Braves
  • Angels
  • Brewers
  • Rockies
  • Guardians
  • Orioles
  • Cubs

We have a bunch of games in the most hitter-friendly ballparks, Coors Field and Great American Ballpark. Here are those matchups:

That means the Giants get four games in Coors while the Brewers get four games in Great American.

 

This Week's Streamers

Randal Grichuk, Colorado Rockies (44% Rostered)

It has been an up-and-down season for Grichuk in his first year with the Rockies, but for the whole season, he's hitting .324/.354/.527 in Coors Field. That's quite a line. The 7.3% Brl% is moderate but the 19% K% is very nice. The Rockies have seven games in Coors next week, which means we should try to get our hands on as many Rockies bats as possible.

Michael Toglia, Colorado Rockies (5% Rostered)

The rookie has struggled so far in the majors, hitting .220 with a 32% K%. That has come with a 12% Brl%, a 6.1% Blast%, and two homers over 54 PAs. He has played less than half of his games in Coors so far, so this long week at home gives him a nice chance to raise his numbers. He has enormous power, so a homer or two is to be expected next week, but we just have to hope it doesn't come with a .200 batting average here in the crucial weeks.

Elias Diaz, Colorado Rockies (8% Rostered)

If you have unlimited adds and want to swap out your catcher for next week, Diaz has to be a top option. He's hitting .250/.267/.523 over the last three weeks with three homers and an 8.6% Brl%. For the year, he's a .269/.315/.487 hitter in Coors Field with a great 24 PA/HR. He is a good option to trade up for a catcher if you don't already have one of the top guys.

David Villar, San Francisco Giants (6% Rostered)

He gets four games in Coors Field, and this guy has legitimate pop. In 366 PAs in AAA, Villar hit .275/.404/.617 with 27 homers. That's an enormous homer total, but it did come in the Pacific Coast League – the best hitting environment in baseball. In the majors thus far, he has a strong 10% Brl%, but over the last two weeks that number has come up to 16%. To be sure, the strikeout rate of 34% and the contact rate of 62% is a huge problem – but Coors Field really, really helps with that. He is slated to face Chad Kuhl, Kyle Freeland, German Marquez, and Jose Urena in Coors – not guys that get very many strikeouts. I think Villar could give you a big week with the benefit of Coors.

Kyle Farmer, Cincinnati Reds (30% Rostered)

The Reds are also a great spot for streaming hitters as they have six games at home next week. Farmer is good again, hitting .289/.317/.465 over his last 120 PAs. That has come with five homers on a 4.3% Brl% and a 19% K%. Yes, the 4.3% Brl% and the .290 xwOBA don't make a power hitter, but the ballpark evens a lot of that out. Farmer is a strong middle infield pickup for week 24.

TJ Friedl, Cincinnati Reds (23% Rostered)

Six homers and six steals for Friedl in just 178 at-bats this year makes him a very useful fantasy player, especially when playing at home.

Kolten Wong, Milwaukee Brewers (36% Rostered)

There's very little upside here with Wong, but the batting average is usually solid and he can steal a few bags. The Brewers have that really nice four-game set in Cincinnati, so they should put up some stats for you and Wong can rack up the counting stats in the heart of it all.

Ha-Seong Kim, San Diego Padres (17% Rostered)

Kim has been mediocre but not awful since August began with a .248/.303/.376 line with two homers and two steals. He should get three starts in Coors Field next weekend, which could be a big boon to your team's batting average, and Kim can add a couple of steals for you as well.

Evan Longoria, San Francisco Giants (4% Rostered)

The wily veteran is hitting .243/.291/.459 over his last 80 plate appearances, that's not a phenomenal line by any means but the power numbers have been decent. He has three homers over that time and has hit the ball hard while healthy all year long. Longoria probably won't play every day next week, but a multi-homer week wouldn't be shocking given the schedule here.

Seth Brown, Oakland Athletics (27% Rostered)

Brown has been one of the best fantasy players in the league for stretches and then one of the worst. We're hoping that he'll be one of the best next week, and that's really all I have to say about it. I could tell you that he's hit .326 and slugged .696 over his last 47 PAs, but I don't really believe that means anything for the immediate future – but if you're one of those guys that believe in "hot streaks", Brown could be for you. Regardless of all of that, we know that Brown has huge power upside and some steals in his game as well, and that alone is worth a stream in very deep leagues.

Aristides Aquino, Cincinnati Reds (4% Rostered)

This is a very deep league recommendation. Aquino doesn't play every day, and he strikes out a ton, but he has enormous power. Any week where he's given five starts, you can feel pretty good about squeaking out a homer or two. He's hit five homers over his last 99 PAs with a 9.5% Brl%, but of course, it has come with a 29% K% and a bad batting average. He's a homers-only streamer, and better for leagues where you can change your lineup daily and not start him when he's benched against righties.

That's it for week 24 hitter streamers, hope this helps and you all win your leagues!
