Each week Baseball Press will be providing some Under the Radar fantasy players for NL-Only Leagues, AL-Only Leagues and Mixed Leagues. These articles will be dedicated to finding those diamonds in the rough on the waiver wire that will either be a short term or long term replacement to an injury or struggling player on your fantasy team.

Entering into the week of the fantasy season, and the final NL Under the Radar of the year I am going to take a little different approach.  Counting stats are what is important in the final week, and in 99% of the Roto Leagues out there the only categories where you are going to pick up points in the final week.  With that in mind below are a few suggestions for each counting stat that are probably on your waiver wires.  Also if you are in a daily league fill up your rosters on Monday and Thursday with these guys.
