Fantasy Baseball 3 IN/OUT week 22











Because it’s never too early to start thinking about your next week’s matchup.




-   Week  22 –

Each week, the FANFOOD 3 IN/OUT will not include players that are locks for your starting rosters, just the ones that are considered “fringe” starters. The 3 IN/OUT are the ones that you may have on the bench or ones that you can find on the waiver wire. Either way, they are the players you should start and players you need to bench.

Week 22 is the start of the playoffs for most fantasy leagues.  This is not the time to make mistakes because picking the right player can be the difference between winning and losing.  A loss will keep you out of the money, so to help you win here are 6 players that can help or hurt your team in week 22 and all the two-start pitchers.  As always, it’s followed by a great recipe.

This time it’s grilled BeerWursts.


Lets get to it.



3 IN



Martin Prado – 2B/3B/SS/LF, ARI
week 22 matchups: vs TOR, @ S.F.

Martin Prado had a big game in his return to action following a back injury. He Played second and batted fifth for Arizona. Prado has a .284 batting average on the year. He is hitting the way you expected him to when you drafted him. Start with confidence.



Matt Carpenter – 1B/2B/3B/RF, STL

week 22 matchups: @ CIN, vs PIT

Matt is riding a 5-game hit streak (as of Wed) as it has been a long time since he has been called a “fringe” starter. You need to ride him all the way to your fantasy league championship.



Salvador Perez – C, K.C.
week 22 matchups: vs SEA, vs DET

Salvador Perez blasted a pair of two-run homers this past Wednesday, powering the Royals to an 8-1 victory over the Twins. He also singled and doubled, finishing the night 4-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and four RBI. He victimized starter Andrew Albers with his first two-run blast in the fourth inning, and repeated the feat against Casey Fien in the eighth. He has been lighting the world on fire as of late, hitting .362 (17-for-47) with four homers and 16 RBI in his last 11 games. Get him in your lineup if you haven’t already.






Adam Jones – CF, BAL
week 22 matchups: @ CLE, vs CHW

How do you bench 27 homeruns and 95 RBIs? Especially when he is going up against teams like the Indians and the White Sox? Not sure, it’s more of a hunch than anything. I know that is not what you want to hear going into your fantasy league playoffs, but hopefully your team has a bye and you can ride out the upcoming cold streak.



Desmond Jennings – LF/CF, T.B.
week 22 matchups: @LAA, @SEA

Jennings was recently benched in favor of the newly-acquired outfielder David DeJesus. He hasn’t had a multi-hit game since July 20th and is hitting .248 YTD. We think you can do better in center or left.



Mark Trumbo – 1B/3B/LF/RF, LAA
week 22 matchups: vs T.B., vs TEX

mark has cooled off since as the calendar is nearing the end of the month, with just 3 hits in his lst 27 ABs. He hits better at home and he will have all his week 22 games there so that is a reason to start him right? Look at other options.



Two-Start Pitcher of the Week


The FANFOOD 3 IN/OUT Two-start pitcher will not include top tier starters. Those pitchers will always be on your starting roster for the upcoming week. It’s those fringe starters, the ones you use to fill your last roster spot that we think will give you 2 quality starts in one week.

Travis Wood (8-10) bounced back with a sharp performance was he earned his eighth win of the season Tuesday night against the Dodgers in Los Angeles. The right-hander yielded one unearned run on five hits and two walks while striking out six over seven innings of a 3-2 victory. He is scheduled to make his next start Monday at home against the Marlins and then later in the week against the Brewers.

These slow grilled sausages have a great smoky beer flavor from being steamed in beer. I choose a nice stout but most any beer will work. Darker beers add a richer flavor to the sausages. These make a delicious appetizer or the perfect meal while watching the game. After all, what goes better with football than a grilled sausage loaded with beer.



12 bratwurst sausages
24 ounces beer (I use stout)
a disposable aluminum pan



Preheat grill and prepare for indirect grilling.
Place aluminum pan over unheated part of grill.
Pour beer into pan.
Place sausages over the direct heat.
The fire should be a medium heat.
Close the lid and cook for about 5 minutes.
Turn sausages frequently.
When the bratwursts start to brown move them into the aluminum pan with the beer.
When all the sausages are in the pan close the lid and cook for about 20 more minutes.
Serve right out of the pan so that the sausages are hot and juicy.
