Fantasy Baseball: Top 10 sleeper hitters for Week 8 offer plenty of first base options perfect for Freddie Freeman owners
Need an injury fill-in? Looking for a hot-hand play? Scott White has you covered with his top 10 sleeper hitters for Fantasy Week 8.
Looking for a replacement for Freddie Freeman?
Well, even if you're not, first base is a position with serious potential this week, comprising 40 percent of this list.
And that's not even counting Victor Martinez, who's DH-only in CBS Sports leagues.
Speaking of DHs, the Angels play three games at an NL park this week, which could cut into Albert Pujols' playing time. The Blue Jays play two games in the NL, which will impact either hot-hitting Justin Smoak, Kendrys Morales or both. It's a five-game week anyway, so better just to avoid them.
The Indians also play two games in an NL park, but they have seven games in all. I wouldn't worry so much about Edwin Encarnacion or Carlos Santana. If anything, maybe this is the week Santana picks up outfield eligibility.
Now then, for the top 10 hitters owned in less than 80 percent of CBS Sports leagues:
