Welcome to the Fantasy Baseball Hitting Planner for Week 22!

Each week, we try to point out the best set of hitters to target, so check back every Friday.

Whether you’re in a rotisserie league or fighting to move on in your Fantasy playoffs, it’s do or die with just a few weeks remaining in the 2015 season.

Now more than ever it’s important to exploit the best matchups for the upcoming week so that you can give yourself the best chance at becoming league champion.

Let’s get to the planner.

Fantasy Baseball Week 22 Hitting Planner

 

Didi Gregorius, SS, New York Yankees

Over his last seven games, Gregorius is batting a ridiculous .583 with two homers and 10 RBI. While he’ll continue to bat at the bottom of the order, and isn’t particularly known for his bat, this is the perfect case of riding him while he’s hot. As an added bonus, the Yankees will face the slumping Orioles and first-place Blue Jays in Week 22.

Brandon Moss, 1B/OF, St. Louis Cardinals

It has been a disappointing year for Moss, to say the least, but he finally seems to have found his groove late in the season. He is currently in the midst of a seven-game hit streak where he has recorded four homers and seven RBI. If he continues to stay hot, Moss should see plenty of playing time. He and the Cards will face the Cubs and Phillies ahead in Week 22.

Franklin Gutierrez, OF, Seattle Mariners

Gutierrez is now the every-day left fielder in Seattle and is doing the most with his assured playing time. Over the past seven days he is hitting .391 with three homers and five RBI. He’ll continue to bat in the heart of Seattle’s lineup alongside Robinson Cano and Nelson Cruz. In Week 22 Seattle will have two great matchups in the Rangers and Rockies.

Ender Inciarte, OF, Arizona Diamondbacks

Average, runs scored and stolen bases. That is what Inciarte continues to rack up for his Fantasy owners. During the month of August Inciarte hit a cool .310 with a homer, 12 RBI, 12 walks, six runs and three stolen bases. He continues to bat atop the Diamondbacks’ lineup and he should be a mainstay in your fantasy roster. Ahead in Week 22, Inciarte and the Diamondbacks will face the Giants and Dodgers.

Jedd Gyorko, 2B, San Diego Padres

Gyorko is a bit frustrating to own in season-long leagues, but luckily for you he’s probably on the waiver wire because everyone realizes it. Gyorko has been swinging the bat well of late and is seeing a lot of at-bats in the two and five hole in the Padres’ lineup. He hit well in the month of August, having smacked five homers and 18 RBI, and should continue to stay hot against the Rockies and Giants in Week 22.

Good luck in Week 22 and let our Hitting Planner show you the way, and may your hitters find the bleachers more than they find double-play grounders!
