Fantasy Baseball Waiver-Wire Targets: Sept. 15, 2017

September 15, 2017
There are only a couple more waiver-wire articles for this season, so owners need to make the most of it. It has been a long grind, but hopefully it has been worth it, and you are fighting for one of the top spots in your league during the final weeks. 

Waiver-Wire Targets

Washington Nationals Outfielder Michael Taylor -- Taylor has always had the talent, but he has struggled with consistency. He seems to have settled in this season, with a .277 batting average to go along with 16 home runs, 14 stolen bases and 51 runs scored. The 26-year-old has been especially hot in September, with a .359 average, four home runs and two stolen bases. The other good news for Taylor is he has moved up in the batting order, which should give him more chances to drive in runs. Let's ride the hot streak and see if it takes us through the remainder of the season.

Philadelphia Phillies Outfielder Nick Williams -- We recommended teammate Rhys Hoskins a little more than a month ago, and that has paid off big time for fantasy owners. Now it's time to recommend Hoskins' teammate. Williams, 24, is batting in the middle of the order and playing every day. We love that as fantasy owners. He is batting .300 with 10 home runs and 48 RBIs in less than 70 games played. Like Taylor, Williams has been hot in September, with a .377 average and 18 RBIs. That's elite production, and owners need to take advantage of it. 

Seattle Mariners Outfielder Mitch Haniger -- The theme this week is targeting players who are on a hot streak. We don't have time to let guys who have helped us get to this point struggle for a week or so. Haniger is mashing this month with a .451 average to go along with three home runs and eight RBIs. If needing help offensively, this is an incredible week to take advantage.

New York Yankees Reliever Chad Green -- There are many leagues that have an innings limit, so it's more than likely fantasy owners are extremely close to reaching the cap. If that's the case, finding relievers who will put up elite stats in only an inning or two of work is the strategy that needs to be used during the final few weeks. Green is the perfect candidate to fill that role, as the right-hander is being asked to throw multiple innings on a consistent basis and is pitching lights out. Green has struck out 99 this season in 64.1 innings pitched and has a 1.96 ERA and 0.75 WHIP. Green has also picked up three wins in September, which is a nice little bonus.
