If you're afraid to release your drafted stars whose weak performances are killing your fantasy squad, you risk missing out on some early-season hot up-and-comers that could make or break your team.
Remember this: in fantasy, you need to play it week by week, and you need to take advantage of the fact that your players aren’t “real.”
In the real world players demand and possess no-trade clauses, so Theo Epstein and Brian Cashman can’t run around signing free agents and immediately packaging them for positional or rotational upgrades.
In fantasy, you can, and you must.
Here are the top five free agents you should acquire. They have staying power, but you can flip them to upgrade your weak shortstop position or find more starters to replace Carlos Zambrano or Tim Wakefield.
