Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 21 31890229 Sit - Tim Lincecum Sit+-+Tim+Lincecum Fantasy Baseball

On the plus side, Tim Lincecum has allowed fewer and fewer earned runs over the past three outings. However, in those games Lincecum was tagged for six, five, and three runs. In his last two starts, Lincecum averaged an ERA of 6.97 with a 1.94 WHIP. Next, he faces Colorado, a team who posted four earned runs on seven hits the last time they met. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 21 31892184 Sit - Erick Aybar Sit+-+Erick+Aybar Fantasy Baseball

It’s one thing when a player provides a low batting average for a week, it’s another when he’s contributing nothing in the offensive stat columns. In the last seven days, Erick Aybar batted .111 (3-27) with zero homers, zero RBI, and zero runs scored. With fantasy baseball getting into crunch time, you made need to rethink the shortstop position on the lineup. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 21 31890228 Sit - B.J. Upton Sit+-+B.J.+Upton Fantasy Baseball

I’m all for loyalty, but it’s time to cut ties with B.J. Upton, people. For some reason, he’s owned in 49.6 percent of FOXSports.com leagues and Upton is batting below .200…for the entire season. Last week, Upton went 1-15 (.067) with zero RBI. Seriously, drop him from your roster right this second. While you’re at it, replace him with the previously mentioned Khris Davis. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 21 31892183 Sit - Desmond Jennings Sit+-+Desmond+Jennings Fantasy Baseball

A finger injury placed Desmond Jennings on the DL and now that he’s back, his production is slipping. In the past seven days, Jennings only managed two hits in 17 at-bats (.118). Though, he’s batting .319 against lefties, Jennings is only hitting .221 against righties. This week, his Rays will face five right-handed starting pitchers. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 21 31892177 Sit - Alfonso Soriano Sit+-+Alfonso+Soriano Fantasy Baseball

Fantasy baseball is full of peaks and valleys and nothing emphasizes that more than Alfonso Soriano’s month this August. Even though he’s hit eight homers with 25 RBI (in 25 calendar days, mind you), last week Soriano batted .067 last week. We knew his torrid streak would slow down, but that’s a screeching halt. It might be time to jump ship before the batting average gets worse. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 21 31892179 Start - Zach McAllister Start+-+Zach+McAllister Fantasy Baseball

Well, before Sunday’s abomination I was considering the oddly named Sonny Gray (really, parents of Sonny Gray?!) for this spot. Six earned runs later, I decided it might be time to look elsewhere. Enter Zach McAllister. It’s the end of August and the Cleveland Indians are within two games of a playoff spot. Is this real life?! A big reason for that is McAllister. He’s now pitched three-straight quality starts tallying 17 strikeouts in the process. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 21 31892182 Start - Adam Eaton Start+-+Adam+Eaton Fantasy Baseball

After drafting Adam Eaton in a majority of my fantasy leagues, I didn’t think it would take until late August to write a positive piece on him. Last week, Eaton went 12-32 (.375) hitting one home run and driving in six. In the month of August, Eaton is batting over .300 with nine RBI. Hopefully, this is only the start to a great fantasy baseball career…and MLB, too, I guess. – Adam Meyer

David Kohl - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/26/082513-FANTASY-MLB-starts-sits-LN-G4_20130826021650288_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/26/082513-FANTASY-MLB-starts-sits-LN-G4_20130826021650288_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 21 31892178 Start - Carlos Ruiz Start+-+Carlos+Ruiz Fantasy Baseball

At the beginning of the season, Carlos Ruiz was left off of many rosters due to his suspension. Now, fantasy owners should be flocking to the free agent player pool to add the Phillies’ catcher. In the past seven days, Ruiz racked up six RBI with two homers while batting .517 (15-29). The catcher position could almost be streamed like a starting pitcher. There are only a few “must-starts” behind the plate, so if your catcher is struggling, or suffering a concussion, pick-up Chooch. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 21 31892180 Start - Khris Davis Start+-+Khris+Davis Fantasy Baseball

It appears that my galleries could be falling on deaf ears because last week I mentioned Khris Davis and he is still available in 18.4 percent of FOXSports.com fantasy baseball leagues. He continues to crush as last week Davis went 10-21 (.476) with three dingers and six RBI. In August, he’s batting .392 with six homers and 14 RBI. Don’t make me write about Davis three weeks in a row. Add him today. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 21 31892181 Start - Jason Castro Start+-+Jason+Castro Fantasy Baseball

Houston owns the worst record in baseball this season, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t fantasy value on the squad. Last week, Jason Castro batted .529 (9-17) with three home runs and five RBI. That’s good. What’s also solid are his numbers against righties: .295 (93-315) with 13 homers and 42 RBI. After his Astros face the last place White Sox for three games, they’ll play divisional-foe Seattle who owns an ERA of 5.10 (31st in MLB) in the month of August. – Adam Meyer
