Regardless, you should never give up on your fantasy team, no matter what place it occupies in the league standings. Since other owners will give up, you can use that to your advantage in order to finish as high as possible. Your roster just may end up surprising you in the end.

While you may strike gold with a rookie, more often than not you're going to strike out with a first-year player. It's better instead to acquire non-flashy veteran players for the stretch drive, because wise fantasy baseball owners know they are reliable options.
