On the year he’s hitting .240 with 23 runs, ten home runs, 37 RBI, and three stolen bases. Despite being among the league leaders in HRs and RBI Josh is owned in about 25 percent of fantasy leagues.
.
Allen Craig, St. Louis Cardinals:  Craig had 11 RBI over the past 15 days while hitting .419 with seven runs, three home runs, and a stole base. On the year he’s hitting .337 with 14 runs, four home runs, 21 RBI, and four stolen bases. Allen is owned in about ten percent of fantasy leagues.
