Bryce Harper Rankings Debate: Comparing RotoBaller's Rankers

It's the fantasy baseball draft season. To us baseball nerds, few things are more exciting than arguing about player rankings. Today, we'll discuss and compare Byrce Harper's RotoBaller staff rankings. He was ranked No. 8 overall by Jeff Kahntroff, and No. 19 by Brad Johnson. Throughout this series, we'll be using our February Staff Rankings to debate where to... Read More

MLB Dynasty Rankings for 2017: Top 25

All ranking projects are beasts, and the deeper we go, the more beastly they become. Ranking players at one position against players at another is easy enough. Shuffling the positions together to form a top 500 list can be unwieldy. Adding in the "dynasty" tag is the ultimate complication. Before we hit the top 25,... Read More

Dynasty Review: Deep Fantasy League Advice for Week 25

Welcome to the final dynasty review of the 2016 regular season. Starting next week, the format of this article will change, possibly incorporating a new name and focus. I'm still working out the specifics. Don't worry, dynasty MLB coverage will continue on multiple fronts here at Rotoballer. With minor league baseball phasing out of existence,... Read More

Dynasty Review: Deep Fantasy League Advice for Week 24

Last week's column included several new(ish) pitchers. Unsurprisingly, Jose De Leon was the most impressive. Sure, he allowed three runs over his six frames, but he also recorded nine strikeouts with a superb 18.6 percent swinging strike rate. He made his second big league start last night (it's still in the future from my perspective).... Read More

Dynasty Review: Deep Fantasy League Advice for Week 23

Yoan Moncada was the big prospect promotion since we last met. Raimel Tapia is up at Coors Field too. These big name guys have undoubtedly been owned in your dynasty league for years. But September gives us other opportunities including looks at lesser known talents. Let's stick to Coors Field for the first one... Editor's... Read More

We're into the final quarter-season of fantasy baseball. Teams are starting to dig deep as they try to get a read on the future of their franchise. Fantasy owners will need to remain nimble.

With the non-waiver trade deadline behind us, non-contenders will start to move on from their mediocre veterans. Over the coming weeks, we'll see a few call ups in preparation for September expanded rosters. These early moves will be made to get an extra look at a select few before rosters are flooded with inexperienced players. Keep... Read More

With the non-waiver trade deadline behind us, let's discuss some of the prospects who changed hands in the last week.

Dynasty League Review for Week 16: Yulieski Gurriel and More

I think I've (temporarily) run out of Cubs prospects to hype. Well that's note quite true, I'm pointedly ignoring a couple. Chicago's seemingly featured prominently in every edition of the Dynasty Review. Of course, the guys I've already profiled are still going strong. Ian Happ, Eloy Jimenez, Jeimer Candelario, and others will provide a potent... Read More

Dynasty Review: Deep Fantasy League Advice for Week 15

In case you didn't notice, it's All Star week. The MLB Futures Game was played on Sunday and featured some spectacular moments.

Dynasty Review: Deep Fantasy League Advice for Week 14

I'll begin by patting myself on the back for last week's column. Nobody else was writing about Jeimer Candelario last week - at least not until the Cubs announced his promotion to the majors. How's that for a timely report? Ok, fine. I didn't exactly hit the nail on the head. After praising Candelario for... Read More

Dynasty Review: Deep Fantasy League Advice for Week 13

When preparing the Dynasty Review, I always begin by checking in on my picks from the previous week. The big prediction was the promotion of Brandon Nimmo. I can't take much credit for that one. There were already grumbles about Michael Conforto's impending demotion. I don't expect any rapid call ups from this week's crew. I... Read More

Dynasty Review: Deep Fantasy League Advice for Week 12

It's the buying low edition. This week, I'll cover a couple good players who were recently optioned. Their owners may be eager to replace them with major league talent - enough so that they could come at a huge bargain. I'll also turn my eye towards a handful of normal prospects. Cubs catcher Willson Contreras... Read More

Dynasty Review: Deep Fantasy League Advice for Week 11

With the MLB draft behind us, the midseason trade market should begin to gain steam. Trades offer excellent opportunities for fantasy owners to assess talent. The deals themselves give us signals about how clubs value the exchanged players. They also often open up playing time new assets including some who flew completely under the radar.... Read More

Dynasty Review: Deep Fantasy League Advice for Week 10

The MLB draft kicks off in just a couple days. While some dynasty leagues allow owners to roster amateurs, most require the player to at least join the professional ranks before entering the player pool.

Dynasty Review: Deep Fantasy League Advice for Week 8

Welcome back to the Dynasty Review. The purpose of this column is to advise you on up-and-comers in dynasty leagues.

Welcome back to the Dynasty Review. The purpose of this column is to advise you on up-and-comers in dynasty leagues. We're Phillies themed today.

2016 Outfield Prospects and Dynasty Rankings

This is an outfield prospects omnibus, a one stop clearinghouse for all of the profiles I created in the last month. With this post finished, I'll have just enough time to whip through starting pitching before we're too deep into dynasty draft season. You can also read about catchers, first base, second base, shortstop, and third base. Mostly,... Read More

2016 Outfield Prospects and Dynasty Rankings - AL West Edition

Texas has the top prospects of the division on lock down, and the outfield is no exception. All six of the high profile names are Rangers or Astros. Only a few of the "best of the rest" aren't from those two clubs. Those exceptions are with Seattle. Overall, I have 31 names to share, some... Read More

2016 Outfield Prospects and Dynasty Rankings - AL East Edition

Last time out, I covered the Phillies dominated NL East outfield prospects (also catchers, first base, second base, shortstop, and third base). Now it's time to turn our attention to a stacked AL East. I've uncovered 27 outfield prospects in the division, and the quality is much higher than last week's group. If you're looking to load up... Read More

2016 Outfield Prospects and Dynasty Rankings - NL West Edition

Last time out, the ridiculously deep NL Central was the topic of the day. Now we're moving west to the considerably shallower NL West. We've already profiled the AL Central, AL East, and NL East. Fantasy owners will find few distinguished prospects on the left coast, but there are still a few treasures available - 26... Read More

2016 Outfield Prospects and Dynasty Rankings - NL Central Edition

Our division-by-division run down of outfield prospects continues. We've already hit the NL East, AL East, and AL Central (also catchers, first base, second base, shortstop, and third base). The NL Central is loaded with outfield prospects - 38 by my count. If you're looking to load up on future talent, this is a good place to start. To... Read More

2016 Outfield Prospects and Dynasty Rankings - NL East Edition

It's been awhile since I offered up the top catching prospects for dynasty leagues (also first base, second base, shortstop, and third base). With the fantasy season fast approaching, we'll spend the next few weeks blitzing through outfielders and pitchers. There is a daunting quantity of outfield prospects.
