Bryce Harper

Harper has bounced back this year to become the player he was during the 2015 season. Through 35 games, he leads all of baseball with 42 runs. Throw in 13 homers and 36 RBIS and you have the best hitter in the league. He recently missed a series with a groin injury, but he has bounced back nicely with a homer against the Pirates at PNC Park. Why is that so special? Well PNC was the only MLB stadium that Harper did not have a career homer in. At this pace, Bryce will start eyeing Bonds’ records in the future.
At any rate, Harper will certainly hold his value for the rest of the season, and it would be unwise to trade him unless you get a ton in return. He is, without a doubt, the best player in baseball.

Paul Goldschmidt

Goldy was one of the most underrated fantasy commodities coming into this season, and he has once again solidified his place as a top 3 fantasy option. A .310 average, 10 homers, and 10 steals through 41 games. That’s tough production to argue with. He should easily be a 30/30 guy by the end of the season. There just isn’t another first baseman that can put up numbers close to that.
