Fantasy Baseball Rankings 2019: Advanced trade chart loving Joey Gallo, fading Yan Gomes

With the MLB season two months in, Fantasy baseball players have plenty of tough decisions to make. Owners who drafted players like Gleyber Torres (.302/12/37), Josh Bell (.339/16/47) Cody Bellinger (.394/17/44) or George Springer (.313/17/42) have seen massive numbers, but are they sustainable? Will Torres continue his hot pace over the summer months or is now the time to sell high? Trading players at peak value in the 2019 Fantasy baseball rankings and getting in early on sluggers before they hit a hot streak is the best way to dominate your league. Before making a move to bolster your roster, you'll want to consult Ariel Cohen's 2019 Fantasy baseball trade chart. It's a data-driven tool that makes sure you come out on the winning side of any of your Fantasy baseball deals, or help you figure out whether to head to the Fantasy baseball waiver wire. 

Cohen is the creator of the ATC (Average Total Cost) Projection System. He was a finalist for two FSWA Awards in 2018 -- Baseball Article of the Year and Baseball Writer of the Year. Cohen and his Fantasy partner, Reuven Guy, have used the ATC system projections to finish in the money in NFBC, RTSports, Tout Wars and other national leagues, racking up plenty of division titles.

This trade evaluator tool is extremely user-friendly. You simply download an Excel file and input the players you are giving away and receiving. The tool will then give you a value. "C" is an even deal; anything above is a win for you, and anything below is a loss. You can only access this must-have tool at SportsLine. 

In this week's 2019 Fantasy baseball rankings and trade chart, we can tell you that Cohen's Fantasy baseball projections are extremely high on Rangers outfielder Joey Gallo, who is up to No. 71 in head-to-head Fantasy baseball rankings after beginning the season outside the top 100. 

Gallo has always had power, but as a career .214 hitter, Fantasy players haven't been able to rely on him to get on base consistently. However, that's changed in 2019. He's hitting .293 this season and is continuing to put up head-turning power numbers with 15 home runs and 35 RBIs.

Furthermore, he's been red-hot recently, hitting a blistering .462 with three home runs and five RBIs over his last seven outings. With the way he's swinging the bat and plenty of games on tap at hitter-friendly Globe Life Park in Arlington, his home venue, Gallo is a player you need to pounce on immediately.

A player the trade chart is fading in its latest Fantasy baseball rankings 2019: Nationals catcher Yan Gomes. He was a viable Fantasy option coming into the season, ranking well inside the top 200. It's been a tough campaign, however, in his new surroundings, as he's hitting just .231 with two home runs and 12 RBIs. And in his last seven games, he's hitting just .182 with no home runs and one RBI. He's now outside the top 300 and holds very little trade value, so he's a player you shouldn't even consider at this point. 

The evaluator is also extremely high on a pitcher who started the season outside the top 100, but is now a top-10 value. Additionally, it has updated the value of players dealing with injuries like Corey Kluber (arm), Jose Altuve (hamstring) and Andrelton Simmons (ankle). Getting the right value for players like these could be the difference between winning a title or going home with nothing.
