Fantasy Baseball Week 17 Preview: Top 10 sleeper hitters include Robbie Grossman, David Fletcher

The first full week back from the All-Star break features a fairly conventional schedule, with just one team (the Twins) playing eight games and only three (the Rockies, Royals and Brewers) playing five.

Unfortunately, recent prospect call-ups Jarred Kelenic and Jarren Duran both face less-than-optimal matchups, making them poor fits for this week’s list. It doesn’t mean they’re automatic sits or that you should most certainly bench them for all 10 of the players on this list. But I don’t feel particularly motivated to start either in Week 17 (July 19-25), at least not in three-outfielder leagues.

Here are my 10 sleeper hitters for the upcoming scoring period, all rostered in less than 80 percent of CBS Sports leagues.
