Fantasy Baseball Week 26 Preview: Top 10 sleeper hitters highlight Brandon Belt, Adam Duvall


One week after struggling to identify even one sleeper hitter, much less 10, I’m going hog wild here in Week 26 (Sept. 20-26).

The schedule allows me to do so. It’s like MLB put off every rainout until this week. The White Sox and Cardinals are scheduled for eight games. The Indians are scheduled for nine. Only 12 teams are scheduled for fewer than seven games, with two, the Red Sox and Mets, having just five.

Mostly, though, it’s the depleted state of starting pitching around the league that makes for such a hitter-friendly slate. A full week of Coors Field action also helps. 

Week 26: Sleeper pitchers | Two-start pitchers

I’ve tried to narrow the many choices down to the best 10 here, all rostered in less than 80 percent of CBS Sports leagues.
