Two weeks into 2016’s MLB season, fantasy baseball managers will struggle to resist adding players with deceivingly gaudy stat lines.

Eduardo Nunez won’t compete for a batting title, and Mat Latos won’t win every start with a sub-1.00 ERA. These sample sizes will quickly change with little notice, and it’s up to fantasy players to sniff out the fluky starts from the telling successes.

Instead, the veterans are stirring on their lawns while the late bloomers blossom and the former top prospects seek redemption. Early injuries have also created opportunities for a couple of players showing up to the new season fashionably late.

Some of these players are only hot hands to exploit for a short window. Others have the potential to manifest into mixed-league impact players. All of them are available in at least 50 percent of Yahoo Sports leagues as of Sunday night.
