Fantasy Baseball Sleepers 2012: Unlikely Heroes You Want on Your Team
Not everyone playing fantasy baseball will be able to stockpile their team with greatness, which means you'll have to play it smart and draft some solid sleeper picks.
The first few rounds are when you land your star players, but the savvy fantasy baseball players will win their league by winning the draft with their later-round picks.
Of course, they'll have to monitor throughout the year and make transactions to stay on top, but getting the lesser-known players that will produce at a high level will do wonders for them.
With that said, here are three unlikely heroes you're going to want on your fantasy baseball team.
Will the Braves Make the Playoffs?
Mike Minor, SP, Atlanta Braves
The Braves starting rotation is stacked once again, and Minor is going to be one of the guys that gets the job done in Atlanta.
He isn't as well known as Jair Jurrjens, Tim Hudson or Tommy Hanson, but he has great stuff.
Look for Minor to exceed expectations this year, giving the Braves a great body of work all season long.
Adam Dunn, DH, Chicago White Sox
Dunn can't be any worse than he was last season. His stats should jump up this season, because he's not going to flop that bad in back-to-back years.
While he does strike out more than folks would like, Dunn has the power that you'll want on your team.
He's going to bomb them out of the park much more this year, helping the White Sox win, as well as your fantasy team.
Will the Tigers Make the Playoffs?
Brennan Boesch, RF, Detroit Tigers
Boesch is really going to benefit from having Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder on his team.
He's coming back from a thumb injury, but you can count on him to deliver. Boesch has good power and makes great contact at the plate. This is a guy you definitely want on your team because you can wait to draft him, knowing he'll produce in 2012.
Pitchers are going to throw him good stuff to hit. They'll be forcing it too much to try and get him out so they won't have to face the two big studs on the Tigers roster.
