Throughout April, many previously unheralded baseball players posted monster stats, surging to the top of the rankings at their positions.
Fantasy owners everywhere cashed in on bargain picks such as Kevin Youkilis (.393 BA, 6 HR, 20 RBI), Raul Ibanez (.351 BA, 8 HR, 21 RBI), and Josh Johnson (2.57 ERA, 38 K's, 6 BB's), to name a few.
But, as fantasy owners know, with surprise standouts come surprise slumpers.
Every team has one—that guy that you drafted early who's being outperformed by a backup you got in the 10th round.
Every year, big name players get off to slow starts, and the hardest question in fantasy arises: "Do I trade him?"
Well, slow starts aren't always followed by an entire bad season. But sometimes, they are.
Predicting which slumps are going to last is like predicting who Al Davis is going to draft next (Barry Bonds?).
So which slumbering superstars are going to wake up in May? June? This season? I've got the answers.
