Suggested early-season pickups

Do you realize that when you completed your draft or auction, you accrued only about 70 percent of the stats you'll have by year's end? That's right, you still have a lot of work to do. So while everyone else is reading about how the key to fantasy success is to be patient, take advantage and be proactive with your lineup.

I'm not saying you should deal Matt Kemp for Chris Davis or Cole Hamels for Justin Masterson. What I'm saying is it's never too early to make your team better.
