Fantasy Baseball: Week 2 Stock Up, Stock Down

Stock Up: Bryce Harper

No team is hotter than the Washington Nationals right now, and no player is more white-hot than Bryce Harper.

Harper’s last 10 games have done everything and then some to prove that he was more than worth it to trust as a keeper or first round pick.  He has six home runs (five in consecutive games), 15 RBI, and hitting .389.

Bryce also hit his 100th home run in grand fashion. He promptly unloaded the bases with an absolute no-doubter, which was also his first career grand slam, the only player to do so on his 100th blast.  He is now also the eighth youngest player to reach the 100 homer milestone.

Dusty Baker and Harper seem to have an incredible relationship, so keeping him happy could also be a huge plus in building on a solid year for the 23-year-old stud.

With all the talent in the world, Harper should continue to see his stock rise, which means that he would probably be an obvious choice each week, but it was impossible to not include him this week with everything that he has been able to accomplish.
