Later-Age Fantasy Breakouts for 2018

Common wisdom used to suggest that a hitter’s true prime was his age-27 season, but in recent times that seems to have shifted to a younger age as more and more players break into the league earlier.

Overvalued - NL Outfielders Set to Bust in 2018

Ottoneu is a format that only the fantasy baseball obsessed know about.
