Fantasy Baseball 2012: 6 Productive Hitters Who May Fall Back to Earth Soon

Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton (28 HR, 78 RBI, 56 Runs, .300 BA) has seen his batting average plunge 102 points since his seven-game, nine-homer, 18-RBI explosion ended on May 13.

The following slideshow details six prominent hitters who may experience sluggish second halves to the season.

To clarify, this listing isn't guaranteeing that any of the batters will completely fall off the map in August or September. Nor is it dismissing their chances of helping teams contend or claim fantasy pennants in 12-, 14- and 16-team leagues.

It's merely a subjective assertion that each player has already reached his respective fantasy ceiling in the majority of offensive categories (runs, steals, homers, RBI, batting average, on-base percentage and OPS).

It goes without saying: I hope to be dead wrong in all cases.

We'll feature the unsung and overvalued pitchers in future countdowns—perhaps next week.

Enjoy the show!
