Fantasy Tip: Altuve ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is proving why he was a top pick in fantasy drafts this spring, and he is also an excellent FantasyScore option, while he is living on base.

However, Altuve also carries a hefty salary at FantasyScore, so you'll have to budget accordingly to fit him into your lineup.
