Every year the New York Yankees are one of the most intriguing story-lines in the Fantasy Baseball world. Over the years team has been stacked with stars that fly off the first round draft board. This year the big names such as Stanton & Judge stick out… believe it or not but the Yankees have a 70% turnover from their 2017 Opening Day lineup.
We feel the two most important players for this team could actually be Gregorius and Sanchez. Both players missed about a month of playing time last year due to injury and they’re both happy to fly under the radar. With a full season, we expect Sanchez to approach 40 HR. A healthy Greg Bird could be bring in another 20+ HR.
Last year the Yankees were, for the first time in a long time, easy to cheer for, even if you were an opposing fan. They were young, unproven and simply not supposed to be very good. It was a season where they were supposed to lay the ground work for bigger things. Well, if the groundwork is game 7 of the ALCS then there really is only one bigger task—the World Series.
Opening Day is upon us – we expect the lineup for GM 1 to be:
1. LF = Gardner
2. RF = Judge
3. DH = Stanton
4. C = Sanchez
5. CF = Hicks
6. SS = Gregorius
7. 3B = Drury
8. 2B = Walker
9. 1B = Austin
