After being relatively quiet the first week-plus of the season, Justin Upton finally began to connect with the ball. He got at least two hits and an RBI in Atlanta's series against the Nationals last weekend, certainly giving his fantasy owners a boost (and possibly leading squads to victory). He's cooled off a bit against the Phillies this week, but he's still slashing a stellar .327/.417/.596 for the season.
We briefly discussed this last week, but we'll emphasize again that these rankings highlight the 30 best players in fantasy baseball from the previous week, not going forward. This might shine a light on a few players owners may not know about who are on a hot streak, potentially worth picking up to slot into the utility spot for a week or so, or help owners make decisions regarding a trade. That's why only three players also made the rankings last week. All stats are from games played from April 9 to April 15, unless otherwise noted.
