Who is performing and who is declining this week in fantasy baseball?

We are now in week nine of the fantasy baseball season, almost a month away from the all-star break. It has been an interesting season so far for some big name players.

Bryce Harper is batting only .257 after his monster MVP season last year. Is he still a fantasy stud? Absolutely, but he is not living up to his preseason draft stock (picked first overall in many drafts).

Josh Donaldson, the American League MVP, is also only batting .255. Donaldson bolstered his draft stock for 2016 after an incredible 2015 campaign. Donaldson needs to pick up his game in order not to be a first or second round bust that he has been this year.

Let’s take a look at three players on the rise and three players on the fall at this point in the season.
