2018 FANTASY BASEBALL LINEUP ISSUES: BRYCE HARPER AND ANTHONY RIZZO BOTH MOVE TO LEADOFF TUESDAY

                                                                         

While both guys are considered to be the cream of the crop in terms of sluggers in today's baseball more suited to the third or fourth spot in the lineup, the Atlanta Braves and Chicago Cubs will go with outfielder Bryce Harper and first baseman Anthony Rizzo in the leadoff spot for Tuesday's games.  What is interesting is that both guys are performing at wildly differing rates as Harper has been nothing short of a monster, while Rizzo is in the midst of an insane slump that has his average down to .149.  Obviously speaking, hitting out of the leadoff spot is excellent for counting stats since it brings extra at-bats but it also could cost Harper and Rizzo some RBI as well on the flip side.  Be that as it may, Rizzo remains a very good buy low as he is as rock solid in terms of numbers of any player over the last four seasons and he is way too good to continue struggling like this.
