When I started researching this article, I was aiming to list stolen base targets owned in less than 50% of ESPN leagues, but apparently, I could have lowered that number all the way to 7%. However, I m basing that ownership on FantasyPros's ESPN data. I don t use ESPN myself anymore. I m still waiting for them to reply to a customer service email I sent in 2008. But here s the situation you find yourself in now -- you re dead last in SB in your roto league. I planned it this way, you say to your league mates. Yep, I punted stolen bases -- who cares about 1 category if I m dominating the others? You grimace as you look at Adalberto Mondesi s 0 SBs on your IL, Jonathan Villar s 0 SBs on your bench, Leody Taveras s .160 OBP you had to drop after 3 weeks of garbage baseball. And you re not dominating the other categories, are you Tommy? You re not dominating them at all. And now you find yourself desperate. Kenta Maeda and Kyle Hendricks have forgotten how to pitch (until this week.) Luis Robert is basically done for the year and that can t-miss, sure-fire, put him in the Hall of Fame now prospect Kyle Tucker is, in fact, missing all over the place! That s where SAGNOF has your back. The players below are so low-owned they re cheaper than free. Pick 1 or 2 of them up and start making that climb in your league s SB column. Deshi deshi basara basara! Deshi deshi basara basara!
