Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Week 5 Fantasy Baseball Studs and Duds 31738568 Stud - James Loney Stud+-+James+Loney Fantasy Baseball

Happy Birthday James Loney!  He turned 28 years old on May 7 and is having himself quite the start to the 2013 season.  He's hitting .391 with a .436 OBP. If he had enough at bats to qualify, he'd lead baseball in hitting.  Over his last nine games, Loney has pounded out six multi-hit games.  He may not possess a ton of power (single-season high of 15 home runs), but has a track record on getting on base, which for the 2013 Rays' offense is a godsend.  Loney is only owned in 4.9 percent of all fantasy leagues on FOXSports.com - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Week 5 Fantasy Baseball Studs and Duds 31740648 Dud - Justin Upton Dud+-+Justin+Upton+ Fantasy Baseball

Remember, this is a weekly "dud" nomination for Justin Upton and has nothing to do with his season-to-date fantasy resume.  Over the last week, Upton hit .200 with no extra base hits and four runs scored.  Fantasy owners in weekly leagues paid the price for Upton mimicking older brother B.J. for a week, but rest assured the "slump" won't last long. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Week 5 Fantasy Baseball Studs and Duds 31738560 Stud - Adeiny Hechavarria Stud+-+Adeiny+Hechavarria Fantasy Baseball

At this rate, Adeiny isn't going to win any batting titles, but for the lanky shortstop to pound out seven RBI against Roy Halladay in only three innings, you must tip your cap.  I don't care how much Halladay has regressed and if he wound up on the disabled list the following day, Hechavarria had a fantasy performance to remember including a grand slam and a triple in back-to-back at bats. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Week 5 Fantasy Baseball Studs and Duds 31740635 Stud - Marcell Ozuna Stud+-+Marcell+Ozuna Fantasy Baseball

Ozuna was promoted directly from Double-A Jacksonville after mashing five home runs and driving in 15 in 10 games. The franchise’s No. 6 prospect possesses a ton of power (22, 23 and 24 HR last three minor league seasons). He's 11-27 (.407 BA) with a home run, four RBI and four runs scored in his first seven games with the Marlins. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Week 5 Fantasy Baseball Studs and Duds 31740646 Dud - Alex Rios Dud+-+Alex+Rios Fantasy Baseball

After spending most of April above .300, Rios' batting average dipped below .260 and he's only hitting .190 this month with a home run and three RBI.  The good news is over the last three seasons, May and June are his best months for power production (HR / RBI).  So, owners should be patient with Rios while he works out of this temporary slump. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Week 5 Fantasy Baseball Studs and Duds 31740647 Stud - Ryan Raburn Stud+-+Ryan+Raburn Fantasy Baseball

With Michael Bourn expected back from the disabled list later this week, this may be Ryan Raburn's one cameo in the Fantasy Baseball Studs 'o the Week gallery.  Raburn won the American League Player of the Week award after batting .591 (13 for 22) with four homers, one double, nine RBI and five runs scored in five games to earn his first career weekly honor.  He became the first member of the Tribe to be named AL Player of the Week since Asdrubal Cabrera two seasons ago.  He's hitting .344 on the season in 67 at bats. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Week 5 Fantasy Baseball Studs and Duds 31738587 Dud - Edwin Jackson Dud+-+Edwin+Jackson+ Fantasy Baseball

Four of the Chicago Cubs' five starting pitchers possess ERAs of 3.09 or lower and the entire rotation and bullpen ranks 11th in team ERA in all of baseball (3.82).  The black sheep of the group is Edwin Jackson and his 6.39 ERA.  E-Jax allowed 12 earned runs in 9 2/3 innings pitched in two starts last week. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Week 5 Fantasy Baseball Studs and Duds 31740644 Studs - Verlander and Scherzer Studs+-+Verlander+and+Scherzer Fantasy Baseball

One of the most exciting starting pitching combos in all of baseball, Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer shut opponents down over the last week.  The duo combined for a 4-0 record with 35 strikeouts and five earned runs allowed in 29 1/3 innings pitched.  That's stud! - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Week 5 Fantasy Baseball Studs and Duds 31740574 Dud - Roy Halladay (DL) Dud+-+Roy+Halladay+%28DL%29 Fantasy Baseball

Halladay allowed 17 earned runs in six innings of work over his last two starts against the Indians and Marlins.  His season ERA is 8.65 with a 1.46 WHIP.  He was placed on the 15-day disabled list with shoulder inflammation.  Halladay's nightmare season is far from over.  - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Week 5 Fantasy Baseball Studs and Duds 31740651 Stud - Mark Trumbo Stud+-+Mark+Trumbo Fantasy Baseball

Mark Trumbo's power stroke has returned.  After hitting only two home runs through the first 25 days of April, Trumbo has smacked five homers in his last 10 games.  Plus, he's started to take more pitches with a .364 OBP (.294 BA) as his 14 walks on the season are on pace to crush his previous season-high of 36. - Ryan Fowler
