Fantasy baseball can be a fickle mistress, and that’s feeling especially true right now for anyone who drank the Kool-Aid on the Boston Red Sox and drafted players like Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford or Clay Buchholz.

Crawford has been the poster child for fantasy baseball disappointment thus far, as he’s dug holes for fantasy teams nearly as deep as the one the Red Sox are enduring with their sparkling 3-10 record.

There are similar fantasy ails with players on other struggling MLB teams, too—the normally superb trio of Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau and Joe Nathan have floundered for the 4-10 Twins, and pretty much anyone not named Chris Young has pitched very “generously” for the 4-11 Mets

The way this season has gone so far across baseball with so many poor starts, chances are your fantasy baseball team has at least one hole to fill. But Week 3 of the fantasy baseball season is typically a great time to fill those holes, as there has been enough time to gain a decent sample size of information without it being too late to snag the undiscovered sleepers in your league. There is hope to improve (or prove your early hot start is no fluke, you smug jerk).

So whether you’re in a rotisserie league or a head-to-head points league, stay tuned here as I pass along any and all updates below that might help you make those crucial early-season adjustments.
