Fantasy Implications - Gerrit Cole to the Astros

The Gerrit Cole sweepstakes have finally come to an end and the Houston Astros are the new home of the 27-year-old former first round pick. Houston traded third baseman Colin Moran, outfielder Jason Martin and pitchers Joe Musgrove and Michael Feliz to Pittsburgh in order to add Cole to an already formidable Astros rotation. With...

The Cubs wanted some starting pitching depth so they signed Tyler Chatwood to a three-year deal worth $38 million back in early December. Most likely sliding in behind Jose Quintana on the Cubs rotation, Chatwood’s presence on the tail end provides the Cubs with a nice blend of experience and upside. After all, this upcoming...

Welcome back, RotoBallers. I'll be breaking down impact prospects in dynasty leagues by position over the next several weeks. I’ve already covered catchers, first basemen, second basemen, third basemen, shortstops and both AL and NL outfielders. Today I'm bringing you my top 20 national league starting pitchers - dynasty prospect rankings for 2018 dynasty baseball leagues.... Read More

Every year the MLB Rule 4 draft, more commonly known as the First-Year Player Draft, gets a lot of attention from casual baseball fans and fantasy baseball players alike. In terms of fantasy relevance, though, the Rule 5 draft, which occurs during baseball's annual Winter Meetings, is far more impactful than the Rule 4 draft for...

The following analysis is presented with some misgivings. Both Chase Headley and Starlin Castro were moved this offseason, making them candidates for a change of scenery examination. However, these veteran players do not present an obvious fit with their presumably rebuilding clubs and have been included in trade speculation, with Castro reportedly asking to be... Read More

If you’re a voracious consumer of baseball analysis – a judgment that, if you’re reading one of my articles almost three months before the season starts, I would deem fair – you’ve heard the following phrase plenty of times: Better a year too early than a year too late. This, of course, refers to older... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers. I'll be breaking down impact prospects in dynasty leagues by position over the next several weeks. I’ve already covered catchers, first basemen, second basemen, shortstops, third basemen and National League outfielders. Today I'm bringing you my top 10 American League outfielders - dynasty prospect rankings for 2018 dynasty baseball leagues. As discussed the... Read More

We have previously seen that both West Coast teams and bad teams are great places to mine for fantasy gold because nobody is keeping up with their games. There is a third category that also goes underappreciated: the Tampa Bay Rays. The team isn't projected to be bad (80-82 projection by Steamer) and they're not... Read More

The New York Yankees were already one of the more stackable teams during the 2017 season, as they had the most home runs in baseball, finished second in runs scored, and even were a respectable 12th in stolen bases. So what did the team do for their 2018 encore? They added the most feared slugger... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers. I'll be breaking down impact prospects in dynasty leagues by position over the next several weeks. I’ve already covered catchers, first basemen, second basemen, third basemen and shortstops. Today I'm bringing you my top 10 National League outfielders - dynasty prospect rankings for 2018 dynasty baseball leagues. One of the only two positions... Read More

Last week, we looked at how West Coast players frequently become fantasy values because not everyone can stay up late enough to watch them play. The same principle applies to teams that fantasy owners expect to be utterly terrible. The 2018 iteration of the Miami Marlins is therefore a great place to look for potential... Read More

If you want to know the secret to finding unheralded fantasy assets, the answer could be as simple as looking at poor teams out west. Most media coverage centers on east coast players that the entire country is awake to see. Exceptions might be made for studs like Mike Trout or Clayton Kershaw, but no... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers. I'll be breaking down impact prospects in dynasty leagues by position over the next several weeks. I’ve already covered catchers, first basemen and second basemen. Today I'm bringing you my top 10 third basemen - dynasty prospect rankings for 2018 dynasty baseball leagues. This is one of the more top-heavy prospect groups in... Read More

The 2017 season was a breakout year for slugging outfielder Marcell Ozuna, who turned in career bests in batting average (.312), on-base percentage (.376), and slugging percentage (.548) while also clubbing 37 home runs and driving in 124 RBI, both of which were also career highs. It was the type of season many fantasy owners... Read More

The 2017 season was a disappointing one for veteran second baseman Ian Kinsler, who slumped to a career-low .236 batting average for the Tigers over 139 games. A casualty of the offseason sell-off in Detroit, Kinsler will head west for the 2018 season to join an Angels team that was in dire need of an... Read More

As we prepare for the 2018 MLB season, fantasy owners need to look at what is next from starting pitchers. Rookie hurlers from 2017 like Jordan Montgomery, German Marquez, Kyle Freeland, and Luis Castillo all garnered Rookie of the Year votes and were key parts of their teams' successes. It is important to be on... Read More

As we move closer to the 2018 MLB season, it is important to see what players are next up for the spotlight in the rookie ranks. It sure would have been nice to draft Aaron Judge, Cody Bellinger, Andrew Benintendi, or Josh Bell at this point last season or to know about breakout young studs... Read More

We seem to have one team every offseason who comes out of nowhere to go all in for a shot at a championship. The calendar hasn’t even switched to 2018 and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have already solidified themselves as one of the top winners this offseason. The Angels made a splash by... Read More

Seattle Mariners infielder/outfielder Dee Gordon was acquired by Seattle at the beginning of December, joining a stronger offense in Seattle. Gordon hit .308 with 60 stolen bases and 114 runs scored for the Marlins in 2017, rebounding from a 2016 season where he only played 79 games. He does not offer much, if anything, in... Read More

New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton set career highs in games played, home runs, RBI, and OPS, winning the National League MVP in 2017. Stanton was particularly potent in the second half, hitting 33 home runs in 73 games, and posted a Herculean .899 slugging percentage in the month of August alone. Stanton was traded... Read More

In what has become something of a South Florida tradition, the Miami Marlins are again selling everything on their roster in an effort to reduce costs. The team is unlikely to have any established names when the 2018 season starts, setting it up as a land of opportunity for fantasy owners searching for gems on... Read More

What’s even more fun than making bold predictions? Looking back at the end of the season to see how good (or so, so hilariously bad) they were. Just like with the preseason pieces in March, I’m kicking off the review of our RotoBaller staff’s 2017 bold predictions. Let's get to it.   Grading the Predictions... Read More

  Looks like we made it, folks. With only about nine or ten games left for each team, the baseball season is just about over. Of course, there's the playoffs to look forward to, but for most fantasy leagues, things end with Game 162. If you're still here, if you're still following along with our weekly MLB... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers! Batting average is just one of many statistics fantasy owners must consider, but contact rate can also be telling of all-around success at the plate. A sudden increase or decrease in contact rate could signal the beginning of an extended hot or cold streak, leading to important waiver wire choices or start/sit... Read More

Saves are an important component for many fantasy baseball leagues. Closers are one of the most volatile positions in fantasy baseball, and one of the highest turnover positions in MLB. Each year, closers drop like flies and many MLB teams make in-season changes due to injuries or poor performance. Stay on top of all closer depth... Read More
