Adam Eaton Any fantasy owner whose done their homework knows who Adam Eaton is at this point.

Matt Holliday is the #10 outfielder according to the RotoBaller.com 2013 Outfield Rankings, and with good reason, too, since he finished 2012 as the #8 OF overall.  He is sandwiched between Justin Upton and Jason Heyward in the ranks, but what you need to notice is that despite the company he's keeping in the rankings, Holliday's...

April will be here before you know it, and I'm sure you've personally studied projections up and down. You've looked at ADPs.
