Fantasy baseball Hitting Report: Analyzing top one-category hitters

Mike Olt can contribute to a fantasy owner's home run and RBI categories, but not much else.

Over the past two weeks, the two players I ranked atop the leadoff hitter rankings earlier this season have found themselves as a hitter of the weak (Choo and Ellsbury). Choo has dropped back a bit after starting hot, especially with Prince Fielder dealing with a back injury. Choo is on pace for just 14 homers, 44 RBI and 11 steals, after another 20-20 season was expected.

After starting slowly this season, Junior Lake has seemingly broken out of his rut.
