Over the next ten days, we will be taking a look at players that can help you in each individual category for those of you that play in roto or H2H category leagues. This installment will focus on the players that can help you in RBI.
I will provide three players for each position. One for standard leagues, one for moderate leagues, and one for deep leagues.
Keep in mind that a lot of these players will be one category wonders. Only you can decide what is truly the right fit for your team. This is merely a place to get started.
Miguel Montero, Diamondbacks: Montero is second among catchers with 24 RBI in the season. A third of those have come in the past two weeks. He won’t do much else for you, but he also won’t hurt that precious batting average. It’s a win-win!
Jason Castro, Astros: Castro has driven in 22 runs on the season, but his average sits at .225. It is marginally better over the last couple of weeks, but let’s face it. The only place Castro will help you is RBI.
Kurt Suzuki, Twins: Suzuki is near the form that made him an all-star in Oakland. He doesn’t provide much power (only one home run on the season), but he does have a .312 batting average and is leading all catchers with 26 RBI on the season. Yes, he has more than Buster Posey, Yadier Molina, and Evan Gattis. The Twins are going to keep starting him, so you probably should as well.
