UP

Jeff Kent, second baseman, Dodgers: Get him back in your lineup. After hitting one home run in his first 30 games, Kent seems to be getting back on track. He hit .304 last week with five homers and 10 RBIs.

Justin Morneau, first baseman, Twins: He hit .208 in April but is putting up big numbers in May. Last week, Morneau hit .417 with three homers and 11 RBIs. He has never hit for a high average, but Morneau is on pace to shatter the 22 HRs and 79 RBIs he put up a year ago.

Dan Haren, starter, Athletics: After starting the season 1-3, he has put together a pair of strong starts. Haren went 2-0 last week and allowed four earned runs in 16 1/3 innings. On Sunday, he tossed a complete game against the Yankees.

DOWN

Adam Dunn, outfielder, Reds: Fantasy owners are not expecting him to hit .300, but Dunn hit just .091 last week and managed only one homer and two RBIs. No need to panic. Dunn will still put up numbers similar to the 40 HRs and 101 RBIs he totaled in 2005.

Victor Martinez, catcher, Indians: The career .296 hitter went just 2-for-23 last week. Martinez is hitting .167 in May and had not homered in 15 straight games going in to Monday. Martinez has still been the best fantasy catcher this year with 11 doubles and 25 runs scored.

Randy Johnson, starter, Yankees: The Big Unit went 0-2 last week and allowed six earned runs in 9 2/3 innings. Johnson has struck out more than five batters just once in nine starts this year and has a 5.13 ERA.
