Fantasy Baseball Weekly Stock Market Report: Jackson, Hart UP; Barney, Moreland DOWN

Some leagues are starting their playoffs this week. Others are moving into the second round. Regardless, the stakes are increasing, as is the need for many to find one more candidate for addition or subtraction that could mean the difference between winning and losing.

Here are some players whose stocks are up, and others whose are down, as you plan your playoff lineups.

Stock Up

austin-jacksonAustin Jackson – OF – DET

Over the past week Austin was 16-32 (.500) with 2 doubles, 3 triples, 2 home runs, 5 RBIs, and 2 stolen bases.  Mr. Jackson has been hot over the past couple of weeks and is an immediate add for fantasy baseball playoffs.   It’s great to go with a hot bat and enjoy the dividends because he is for real!

Corey Hart – OF – MIL

Corey is in the midst of a 16-game hitting streak.  Over the past 15 days, he was 22-54 (.407) with 5 home runs, 8 RBIs, and 2 stolen bases.  Most of the Brewers’ lineup is taking turns with hot streaks and batting at the top of the lineup ahead of Ryan Braun and Price Fielder has led to Hart’s resurgence.  Hopefully he can maintain this pace throughout the playoffs to the owners who have waited patiently all year.

Alex Gordon – OF – KC

Alex was 12-29 (.414) with 2 home runs, 4 RBIs, and 2 stolen bases over the past week.  He has cranked out a pretty good year, having hit .304, with 20 home runs, 75RBIs, 92 runs scored and 16 stolen bases.  It’s crazy to think, but Mr. Gordon is only 4 stolen bases away from the 20/20 club.

James Loney – 1B – LAD

James was 25-55 (.455) with 4 home runs and 14 RBIs over the past 2 weeks.  He has managed 8 multi-hit affairs over the psat 13 games and has stepped up over the past few weeks just on time for the playoffs.  Enjoy the hot corner infielder if he’s available.

Stock Down

Mitch Moreland – 1B/OF – TEX

Mitch was 6-42 (.143) over the past 15 days with zero home runs and 1 RBI.  In weekly lock leagues, he can’t be trusted and if you continue to march him out there, look forward to having an earlier exit out of the playoffs.

Casper Wells – OF – SEA

While Casper started off hot with the Mariners, he’s quickly cooled off having gone 4-41 (.098) over the past 2 weeks with 1 home run and 2 RBIs.  Nothing to look at here and should be a quick drop for a hot bat in the playoffs.

Darwin Barney – 2B/SS – CHC

Darwin was 7-49 (.143) with zero home runs, 3 RBI’s, and 2 stolen bases over the past 15 days.  He doesn’t offer much in the form of power while his average had dipped down to .279 after the hot start.






  1. It may be worth mentioning that Alex Gordon has an unusually high BaBIP. Currently it's sitting at a robust .361 on the year. His line drive rate hasn't really improved (19% versus a career 20%), so a regression is always looming on the horizon.
