Another glorious week of fantasy baseball has come and gone, and here we are again on a great Monday to get it rolling. Before you set your lineups for the day or week, take a look back at some guys who are really tearing it up:

Troy Tulowitzki, SS, Colorado Rockies

Tulowitzki is off to an incredible start to the season and has propelled the Rockies to a major-league best 12-3 record. With 7 homers already, Tulowitzki could be in store for a monster year.

Johnny Damon, OF, Tampa Bay Rays

Surprisingly enough Damon appears to still have something left in the tank, hitting two homers and 2 walk-off game winners, he is starting to heat up.

Matt Kemp, OF, Los Angeles Dodgers

Kemp will probably remain on this list for a while as he is off to a tear to begin the 2011 season. With solid power numbers to go along with his league-leading 8 steals, Kemp could be in for a monster year.

Lance Berkman, OF, St. Louis Cardinals

Berkman is proving the doubters wrong early in his 2011 campaign, turning in a 4 homerun performance this week with all four bombs coming on consecutive days.

Prince Fielder, 1B, Milwaukee Brewers

Fielder started off a bit slow for the first few days of the season but has been on fire since. His average is up to .372 and hit two home runs this week.

Dan Haren, SP, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

Haren continues to dominate early in the year, having now allowed just two earned runs in almost 24 2/3 innings with good strikeout numbers as well.

Sam Fuld, OF, Tampa Bay Rays

If you’re looking for cheap steals, then Fuld is your guy. Having already tallied seven on the year while still boasting a .324 average and a home run, Fuld could prove to be one of this year’s fantasy baseball sleepers.

Josh Johnson, SP, Florida Marlins

Johnson’s near no hitter of a formidable Atlanta Braves lineup on Wednesday reminded folks why  he was in contention for the Cy Young in 2010. Young was less than six outs away from getting his first no hitter before finally giving up a double to Freddie Freeman in the 8th. Look for Johnson to continue this dominance in 2011 as he has turned into one of the better starters in the league in a hurry.

Chipper Jones, 3B, Atlanta Braves

Jones has bounced back nicely from what many thought to be a career ending injury. With two home runs this week and a batting average well over .300, Chipper has shown that he can still be a productive player at age 38.

Johnny Gomes, OF, Cincinnati Reds

Gomes has already gone deep 6 times this season, with three of those coming over just the past two days.
