Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Austin Meadows went 2-for-5 with a double, a home run, five RBI and two runs scored in a 9-2 win over the Yankees on Thursday. After opening the season by slashing .218/.340/.425 in the month of April, Meadows has been more than making up for his slow start over his last 15 games, slashing .322/.437/.746 with six homers, one steal, 22 RBI and 14 runs scored. Most of that success has come in his last seven games alone, where he's slashed .440/.548/1.200 with five home runs, one steal, 15 RBI and nine runs scored. There's no hotter player in fantasy than Meadows right now, and managers should enjoy this hot streak for as long as it lasts.

He's gotten really hot at the plate recently, as he is now slashing .339/.435/.746 with five home runs, 20 RBI and 13 runs scored over his last 15 games. Managers might want to take a swing at trading for Meadows now before his value gets even higher.
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Austin Meadows was viewed as a fantasy stud and top-50 player entering 2020. He broke out in a big way during his first full season in Tampa, batting .291 with 33 HR, 89 RBI, 83 R, and 12 SB in 2019. Like numerous other players in 2020, however, Meadows was set back by COVID and injuries. Meadows first landed on the IL a week before the season began. He got off to a sluggish start and never truly got going. It culminated with a terrible September in which he hit .140 with just one homer, four RBI, and one steal over 50 at-bats before ending the year on the injured list with an oblique strain.There is still promise that the same talented 25-year-old is there, ready to recover from a miserable season. It's easy to simply dismiss 2020 as an outlier but there is also the reality that Meadows has one productive full season under his belt as a pro. This risk is baked into an ADP of 92 overall, making him the 25th outfielder taken in NFBC drafts. His upside is greater than that of players being drafted ahead of him such as Lourdes Gurriel and Charlie Blackmon, so he is worth pulling the trigger on a few picks earlier.
