Week 6 – All Star Fantasy Baseball Team

Batter Review

Mark Reynolds of the Rockies and Mookie Betts of the Red Sox take the honors as the top point men among the fantasy baseball all star batters in week 6 of this young major league baseball season. However, the similarities stop there because from a skills perspective, Betts was by far, the better fantasy player. His 16% walk rate with a 6% strikeout rate combined with his 88% contact rate stands well above Reynolds who struck out at a 14% clip with a horrible 64% contact rate, indicating that Reynolds’ week can be considered more of a “flash in the pan” performance and Betts coming back into his 2016 breakout form.

Another standout performance worthy of noting was Carlos Correa’s. While posting fantasy points in the middle of pack among our all-star fantasy team, his 90% contact rate combined with a 1.50 BB/K rate indicates that he’s bouncing back quite nicely compared to his 2016 lack-luster year.

From a power hitting point of view, Giancarlo Stanton and Yonder Alsonso (that’s right, Yonder Alonso) topped the group slugging 4 and 5 home runs respectively in week 6.

As a group, this week’s fantasy baseball all-star team combined for:

32 Home-runs
87 RBI’s
71 Runs
.386 Batting Average
4 Stolen Bases

Week 6 – All Star Fantasy Baseball Team

Pitcher Review

Setting aside the 2 start pitchers from week 6, Chris Archer, by far, had the best week among our fantasy baseball all start pitchers. His 8 innings pitched with 11 strikeouts and 0 walks is looked real good in my opinion. As noted in this article at the beginning of the season, Archer is looking like one of the top fantasy baseball pitchers to watch in 2017. Archer’s week 6 performance, is backed by a 1.87 xFIP and further supported by a strong 15% Swing strike rate and league normal 59% first pitch strike rate.

As a total group, I’m not totally in awe of this week’s fantasy baseball all star pitching team. While the outward numbers look gawdy (sub 2.0 ERA / sub 1.0 WHIP), the overall skills weren’t that impressive outside of Archer. Take a deeper look into the numbers and if you feel differently, as always, feel free to provide your feedback.
