With the first week of Fantasy Baseball in the books, so let’s take a look at whose stock has risen and fallen.

We have many weeks to go in this very young MLB season, but everyone can be excited about the remaining weeks to come with the numerous exciting moments we have already witnessed.

David Ortiz started his farewell tour with his fifth opening day home run, which was also his 504th of his career, tying him for 26th on the all-time list with Eddie Murray. The day after, Big Papi hit another, passing Murray.

The young players did not wait long to put everyone on notice that the youth movement is here, and it is here to stay. After last season’s breakout stars like Carlos Correa and Fransisco Lindor found immediate success, you can bet rookies will make another big impact on this fantasy baseball season.

Not only did some of the young players show up, but the household names we are used to made sure that no one forgot about them as well.

Although, we still have Sunday’s games to go, we here at Elite Sports NY have the first fantasy stock watch for you. Let’s get started.
