Fantasy Baseball: Week 2 Stock Up, Stock Down

Stock Down: Buster Posey

Posey, another player that started the season off on a high note, has found himself wondering how exactly to hit it where they aren’t.

Blasting a homer in the season opener, Posey picked up where he left off from his great 2015 season where he hit 19 homers, drove in 95 runs, hit .318, and struck out only 52 times in 623 plate appearances.

Fantasy owners did not have a good week with Posey as in his latest seven games, he is 2 for 17, with one home run, one RBI, and a sickening .167 on-base percentage.

It is a shame to see Buster end up on the stock down list, but there is no doubt that he will figure things out and get his numbers back to where they belong.  He is far too good of a hitter and his ability to avoid striking out (never struck out more than 96 times in five full seasons) means that he is always putting the ball in play.
