It was another great Saturday of baseball yesterday as interleague play continued outside of Citi Field where the Reds and Mets continued their NL series. There were the usual amount of unsung, and more importantly unowned, contributors in the world of fantasy baseball. Let’s take a look at our daily lineup (archive) as we make our last moves before the start of another week.
Happy Father’s Day! On this Sunday full of baseball, our daily Sleeper Central will be abbreviated and return to fuller breakdown tomorrow. Percentages included are ownership in ESPN leagues.
