2016 FANTASY BASEBALL ISSUES: KEON BROXTON BEGGING TO BE OWNED

Whne you we reach the point of the fantasy baseball season where we are pushing up on September, a strange phenomenon occurs.  A sizable batch of the fantasy baseball community moves fully to fantasy football due to the poor performance of their baseball squads and as a result, those that are still active can take advantage of the depressed market in picking up players to get them to the winning finish line.  Whether it is new closers, injury replacements, or new hot and young contributors, those who stay true to the league can be rewarded in a major way.  One such player who fits the latter profile is new Milwaukee Brewers outfield sensation Keon Broxton.  With the Brewers having sold off whatever they could leading up to the MLB trade deadline, the team gave Broxton a starting outfield spot during the summer and have been nothing but pleasantly surprised as the former 2009 third round pick has literally hit the ground running as a major steals guy and also has flashed some intriguing power that was highlighted by a two home run game Sunday against the Seattle Mariners.  Going into Monday's games, Broxton has compiled the following numbers:

.250
6 HR
21 R
15 RBI
17 SB

Look at those steals as Broxton has fit right in on a steals-heavy Brewers team and he also has shown some nice pop as well.  The average is ugly due to a very nasty 36.5 K/9 but Broxton is also drawing walks at a very high 15.4 mark which offsets some of that strikeout damage we have seen.  So while Broxton is not going to win your league by himself, guys who come up and make a late difference in a season can help you clinch.  Pick him up where available.
