As you review your fantasy team's first half and plan your second-half playoff run, you might notice some glaring holes on your squad. Do you still own Adam Dunn, Dan Uggla, Derek Jeter or Francisco Liriano? If you know you have one of these glaring holes, let me offer you a few alternatives.
For each position, I have compiled a list of two or three players whom you should consider. A number of the options I suggest could form a fantastic platoon. For example, the two catchers I suggest (J.P. Arencibia, Jonathan Lucroy), if played right, can be more productive than Brian McCann.
Each player in this article is listed with his 2011 stat line and his best split. For example, if I listed the players' batting stats at home, I am saying that you should start the player when he plays at home. The availability that I mention for each player is for a 10-team ESPN standard league.
There are many hidden gems on your waiver wire; if you are looking to fill some holes, look no further than this article.
