Double Vision: Goldschmidt, Vlad Jr, and Kenley Jansen

More than 20 percent of the 2018 MLB season is already in the books. What may have been gut reactions and speculation has started to become legitimate fantasy baseball breakouts and genuine slumps.

This week we pinpoint an area that fantasy owners might need a little bit of help in. Ah, power. Everyone loves it and never seem to have enough of it. You know the old saying, “Pitching and defense win championships?” Well, that’s not the case in fantasy baseball. Power is the name of the game.

With another full week of baseball coming up, it's always smart to check the waiver wire or scout for the occasional 'diamond in the rough' fantasy star found at a very cheap cost. Winning the waiver wire could be the difference between grabbing a few extra points to land in the money or falling just short. Here's a few hitters that might be available on your league waiver wire or could be found at a relatively low cost against favorable pitching match ups.
