Another week, another breakdown off players who were red hot or ice cold last week (some repeat performers). From sleepers who’re coming into their own to fantasy studs suffering through slumps, the MOTY Talk Snapshot will help you manage your team in the coming week, offering up ideas for free agent pick ups, bench moves and potential trade targets/bait.
One slight change you’ll notice from last week is that, instead of highlighting just 1 outfielder and starting pitcher on each Hot/Not list, we’re including 3 per list. Of course, there are many more players who are heating up and cooling down — you can find them very quickly using the Weekly MOTY Rankings at fantasybaseballmoty.com
American League – Hot: Like every week, players appear in this list for 2 reasons — they’re the guys who’ve both risen to the top in the Last Week (LW) MOTY rankings AND, more than likely, are available in your league.
American League – Not: Key to the “Not” lists is that these guys are almost certainly on a roster in your league, possibly yours. And based on sluggish or declining Last Week (LW) MOTY#s, may be down trending … toward the bench for a while or (maybe) as trade bait.
