In fantasy baseball dynasty leagues, it is all about locking up young talent. They have the best long-term value and can carry owners for years. To help out those of you with a long-term plan, here are five youngsters that have displayed some serious keeper potential this season.
Rizzo has already blasted seven homers this year to go along with 21 RBIs. He has a .281 batting average, but his .393 OBP is jaw dropping. Rizzo has truly emerged as a fantasy starter and he will be the next big name to anchor first base.
Skaggs has hit a bit of a rough patch recently, as he has allowed four-plus runs in three of his last six starts. However, he has looked like a true ground ball pitcher, as he has induced 57 ground ball outs compared to 47 fly balls out this season. Skaggs is still only 22 years old and the fact that he has continued to succeed is very promising for his long-term value.
Despite all injuries in Atlanta's rotation, Teheran has quietly developed into a legitimate ace. The youngster has a sizzling 1.71 ERA with an unthinkable 0.81 WHIP. Teheran will be a top-20 hurler for years to come and will be worth locking up in dynasty leagues as soon as possible.
Arendao's 28-game hitting streak finally came to an end, but the impressive feat displayed just how talented the young infielder is. The rookie will be a top-five fantasy option very soon and his prowess defensively has only solidified his spot at third. Arenado is the ultimate keeper at the hot corner right now.
Freeman is finally showing some serious fantasy potential. The first baseman not only has an amazing .303 batting average, but he is posting amazing power numbers as well. Freeman has already blasted seven homers and the thumper is on pace to eclipse the 25 HR plateau for the first time in his career. This may be the last time that Freeman is available in dynasty leagues, so lock him up now while you can.
