Fantasy baseball Weekly Planner: Davis and the 27-year-old strategy
If you're wondering where Chris Davis and his 20 home runs came from, just look at the 27-year-old breakthrough strategy. It doesn't work 100 percent of the time, but when it does, it is a thing of beauty. Just ask Davis owners.
With Davis looking like one of the top 27-year-old sleepers, as we previously touted him, we figured this Weekly Planner is a good time to revisit those in his age group. Many of these guys are still buy candidates if you can get them at a reasonable rate with a trade.

The 27-year-old sleepers
The list of 27-year-old stars doesn't end there either -- Adam Jones, Carlos Gomez and Dexter Fowler have also become huge hits so far this season. It is time to start putting your fantasy eggs in the basket of the players under 30, especially as we enter the dog days of summer. These young, prime bodies are most apt to stay healthy and productive.

Taking a flier on Chatwood -- With Strasburg banged up and Fujikawa out for the year, there is room for a flier on a pitcher. If I win the FAAB bidding, I am going to reserve Strasburg for Chatwood. Wacha and Gregerson are already owned, so Chatwood is the next most intriguing option in the 15-team mixed league. He also conveniently is a two-start pitcher.
