Very early slow start sells, 2024

It's hard to shop hitters who are off to slow starts in many leagues, as fantasy managers often are scared to pick up bad stats early in the season.

That said, hitters with big warts in their skills that have been building for a while can present a good opportunity to avoid further bad stats, especially in non-keeper leagues.

Batters have posted a .692 OPS on average so far in 2024. These sub-.650 OPS bats have posted the lowest average exit velocities (EV) during the season's first few weeks:
