2022 Fantasy Baseball Week 2 Drop List

2022 Fantasy Baseball Week 2 Drop List

Welcome to the 2022 Fantasy Baseball Week 2 Drop List.

A struggling outfielder and two second basemen make the drop list, and the Performance Review section is back this year to keep track of the dropped players as the season continues.

Only two weeks into the regular season and it's still hard to tell who's legit and who isn't. Some top players are struggling to find their groove early on, but most should be expected to turn it around. The three players listed below have a smaller chance of turning their season around and should be dropped.

The lack of production from these players is holding Fantasy Baseball teams back. Check out the 2022 Fantasy Baseball Week 2 Waiver Wire to find the best players to replace these drops.

Brendan Rodgers, 2B, Colorado Rockies

Rodgers has the lowest roster percentage on the Fantasy Baseball Week 2 Drop List. The FantasyPros Player Rater lists Rodgers being rostered in 57% of ESPN and Yahoo leagues, however, this is sure to drop. Even the Rockies have lost some faith in their second baseman as he's now batting sixth in the lineup after starting the first three games in the three-hole.

Through 31 plate appearances this season Rodgers has three hits, two runs, and one RBI, while the strikeout rate is a horrible 35.5%. This alone is enough to drop Rodgers in most leagues. Fantasy Baseball managers can fine better production on the waiver wire such as Owen Miller or Nicky Lopez.

The Detroit Tigers second baseman currently has an awful .452 OPS and it's time to drop him. Fantasy Baseball managers roster Schoop in 62% of leagues but similarly to Rodgers, other players are providing more on the waiver wire.

Lopez and Miller as mentioned above are great players to add, but Luis Arraez and Adam Frazier are two more second basemen to consider adding for this drop.

Eddie Rosario, OF, Atlanta Braves

Rosario is struggling the most on the Fantasy Baseball drop list. His batting average is disastrous .038 and it doesn't seem to be getting better. Fantasy Baseball managers are already dropping Rosario rapidly, as his roster percentage dropped to 70% by Sunday.

Rosario has little trade value after his bad start, it might be easier dropping him rather than trading him. One player that is worth targeting is Jesus Sanchez of the Miami Marlins. Fantasy Baseball managers roster him in just 28% of ESPN and Yahoo leagues, but he is raking at the plate. His roster percentage is sure to jump in the coming days while Rosario's will continue to fall.

Performance Review

The Performance Review section is here to review the players that made the drop list from the previous week. Keeping track of these players is an important part of the Fantasy Baseball Drop List. A Fantasy Baseball manager needs to keep track of their recent drops so they can add them back if needed.

Patrick Corbin, SP, Washington Nationals

As predicted Corbin was well worth the drop before heading into his second start. Corbin struggled to get batters out in a divisional matchup versus the Atlanta Braves and only pitched 2.2 innings. The Braves scored six runs with nine hits and three walks against the Nationals starter.

His next start came on Sunday versus the Pittsburgh Pirates, and he allowed just two runs in 5.1 innings. Corbin struck out four and walked three. This is a better start than his first two, but it did come against the Pirates.

Corbin will pitch Friday against the San Francisco Giants and is a risky start in Fantasy Baseball. He should stay on the waivers this week with a wait-and-see approach from Fantasy Baseball managers.

Brandon Crawford, SS, San Francisco Giants

Crawford was better this week than last week, he recorded five hits in 17 plate appearances and just two strikeouts. Crawford is still a player that should be left for 14-team leagues instead of 12-team leagues.

FantasyPros lists Crawford's roster percentage outside the top 35 middle infielders.
