Is George Springer Morphing Into Beltranwell?

Fantasy baseball: What to do with George Springer

First and foremost, I have a confession to make. Some would consider me a fantasy baseball noob. I’m only a sophomore in the sport, and while I currently lead my division, I’m the Padres or Astros in terms of titles, and certainly not the Yankees.
