In my starting pitchers’ piece, I noted how I wanted top starting pitchers, but very few had an ADP at or lower than my rankings. Thus, in order to fill my goal of acquiring top starting pitchers, I had to search for relative value; those who had ADPs close to my rankings became relative values.... Read More

This article first appeared on the Metro news publication. Our long national nightmare is nearly over. No, not that one…here we’re referring to the lack of baseball. Opening Day is right around the corner, and not a moment too soon. After last week’s look at the busts, let’s end draft season on a happy note... Read More

In this piece, I'll lay out some second basemen who are shaping up as great values in fantasy drafts and also a few who are not worth their current prices. All ADP data can be found using our awesome rankings wizard. The top half of the second base position is littered with talented players, from expected... Read More

As we’ve discussed, points leagues are a bit of a different animal from the more popular head-to-head and rotisserie formats. One of the easiest and best ways to ensure that you’re making a smooth transition between these disparate styles is to identify players whose values change most. Today we're looking at some potential outfield sleepers and busts,... Read More

Now that the first day of Spring has passed, we are now entering the prime season for fantasy baseball drafts. Before you enter your draft room this year, it would behoove you to check out our ADP analysis pieces here at RotoBaller. This will ensure you have a good working knowledge of how players are...

Runs batted in can be a difficult stat to predict given that RBI production isn’t solely up to an individual player and the skills they possess. It goes without saying that in order for there to be opportunities to drive in runs, there must be players on base to drive in. This makes factors such... Read More

"Closer" can more or less be considered a starting role in fantasy baseball. It's not a starting role in the sense that the player actually starts every game, nor does he start in a regular rotation, but he has a set role that his manager uses him in. The whole point of trying to convince you... Read More

Yesterday, I covered the AL’s overvalued and undervalued pitchers according to ADP. Today it's time to tackle the National League starters - players that I think can be SP draft values or busts based on their current draft day prices. To switch things up, in this piece we will start with the overvalued pitchers. This isn't... Read More

In my pitching strategy article, I laid out my case for drafting three high-floor, high-ceiling starters and then waiting until late for lottery ticket pitchers. I also advised against paying for the pitchers in between, who either lack the ceiling or the floor to justify the price. In this piece, I'll lay out some top end... Read More

As the 2017 fantasy baseball season draws near, we are forced to look back at the 2016 numbers that were and decode what to buy into and what to ignore. How much should we write off that cold streak due to a potential lingering injury? Will this trade affect Player X in a positive or... Read More

Before the 2016 season, you could find Alex Gordon ranked somewhere between 130 and 170 in the overall player rankings at most fantasy baseball outlets. Gordon was coming off a 2015 season in which he played just 104 games, while totaling his lowest counting stats since 2010 and stealing just two bases. Now, before the... Read More

The key to winning a championship in fantasy baseball is to find some gems in the late rounds of your fantasy baseball drafts. Anyone can draft a top-10 player, but only the good ones can find the diamonds in the rough. Below are some 2017 deeper starting pitcher sleepers for the American League. I analyze... Read More

Arguably the most enjoyable aspect of fantasy baseball draft season is trying to identify which players will break out. The emergence of a low-cost gamble as a core contributor can make the difference between a championship season and another year as an also-ran. Today, I'm here to talk about some potential shortstop sleepers and breakout... Read More

Catcher is a position that is in severe need of a breakout from some guys in 2017. While last season did give us a nice breakout like Yasmani Grandal and an eye-popping debut like Gary Sanchez, it’s a still a light position that is pretty much Buster Posey and everyone else. Since only one team... Read More

Spring Training rolls along, giving us a great chance to overreact to every at-bat. It might be a better use of our time to look at some stats from previous years and analyze current draft values instead. This time we'll check out some undervalued and overvalued NL Outfielders, to identify desirable draft targets and avoids based on ADPs.... Read More

2016 was a amazing season in terms of the number of rookies making a splash in fantasy baseball. We saw elite first years from the two Rookies of the Year Corey Seager and Michael Fulmer. We were blessed with glimpses of greatness from the likes of Trevor Story, Gary Sanchez, and Trea Turner. Then there were the two... Read More

First Basemen Breaking Out in 2017

If you have not yet noticed in your early fantasy drafts or mocks this year, power is no longer a premium in fantasy baseball. Speed is the new currency, and if you want it, you have to be willing to pay big and early for it. With that being said, there is no longer quite... Read More

Anyone can draft a top-10 player, but only the good ones can find the diamonds in the rough. Below are some deeper NL starting pitcher sleepers for 2017. I analyze five hidden starting... Read More

When many think of sleepers, they think of young players who may break out, players who switched to a more favorable team, or players who underperformed according to sabermetric indicators (e.g. BABIP, Statcast data, HR/FB%, etc). They may even look for anecdotal evidence of a breakout, such as someone who changed his swing. But those... Read More
