Terez, I am the key to your fantasy success..

People who had Mr. Carpenter on their fantasy teams last season won 58.6% of their weekly head-to-head matchups—the best winning percentage of any other ballplayer, according to data culled from more than 10,000 leagues on CBSSports.com. This season’s top sleeper may be Oakland Athletics pitcher Ben Sheets, who missed last year with an arm injury but is expected to be healthy. Another player to watch is Minnesota Twins pitcher Francisco Liriano. Drafters fear his inconsistency, but his talent is undeniable –Wall Street Journal
