2016 Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Adds by MLB Position

ALL - C - 1B - 2B - SS - 3B - OF - SP - RP

 

Jarrod Dyson (OF, SEA) - 2017 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers & Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target ~240

CURRENT ADP: 262

ANALYSIS: Jarrod Dyson was an excellent fourth outfielder with the Royals for most of this decade, his speed and defense making up for a lack of punch at the plate. He’s sixth in the majors in stolen bases since 2012, despite averaging fewer than 300 plate appearances per season during that time. He’s reportedly set to begin the seasons as the Mariners’ primary left fielder and leadoff man, making his current draft price a potentially major

...

Matt Holliday (OF, NYY) - 2017 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers & Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target ~225

CURRENT ADP: 257

ANALYSIS: Matt Holliday is long one of the most bankable assets in baseball, but recent times haven’t been kind to him. Injuries have limited him to just 700 total plate appearances in the last two seasons. In 2015, he managed just four home runs after averaging 26 over the previous nine seasons. Last year, he hit a career-worst .246 and posted a walk rate below 10 percent for the first time since 2007. Now he’s

...

Max Kepler (OF, MIN) - 2017 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers & Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target ~210

CURRENT ADP: 231

ANALYSIS: Max Kepler exploded onto fantasy owners’ radar with a three-homer game on Aug. 1, but hit just three homers over the remainder of the season. That late-season swoon is the likely culprit for his current ADP, but there’s a lot to like here. Kepler is still just 23 (he was in rookie ball at age 17 after signing out of Germany) and has always shown good plate discipline. Over the last couple of years,

...

Kevin Kiermaier (OF, TB) - 2017 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers & Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target ~170

CURRENT ADP: 188

ANALYSIS: Kevin Kiermaier is widely known for his ridiculous defense in center field, but he’s also been a slightly above-average hitter in his career. Before a hand injury derailed things, he was pacing toward a 20-HR/30-SB season in 2016. Plus, he nearly doubled his walk rate. His .246 batting average left a bit to be desired, but he hit .263 in each of his first two MLB seasons. If he can get back to that

...

Kole Calhoun (OF, LAA) - 2017 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers & Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target ~160

CURRENT ADP: 184

ANALYSIS: Kole Calhoun seems pretty under-appreciated for a guy who ranks 16th among outfielders in FanGraphs WAR over the last three years. He has averaged 20 homers and just under 90 runs scored over that span to go along with a passable average. Last season, Calhoun managed to chop over six points off his K% while also posting a career best walk rate of 10 percent. In an Angels lineup that should outperform

...

2017 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper: Hunter Renfroe

Those who follow prospects in any way at all should be familiar with Hunter Renfroe. He is a former first-round pick and a top 100 overall prospect the last two years. He was also MVP of the Pacific Coast League last season, mashing to the tune of an .893 OPS with 30 HR and 105 RBI. It marked the third out of four minor league seasons in which he totaled at least 20 HR and 75 RBI. This hardly seems like sleeper material, but the fact is that Renfroe's...

Early ADP Values for Fantasy Baseball: AL Outfielders

As Opening Day creeps ever closer, it's a good time to start analyzing player values to get a jump on the competition. Today I'll be taking a look at undervalued and overvalued AL Outfielders, to try and help identify draft targets and avoids based on ADPs. These are some American League players to monitor in preseason mock drafts to see how their respective values may shift before Spring Training and fantasy seasons get underway. ADP data is taken from early NFBC rankings to determine which players may be great values, and which ones should be...

Early ADP Values for Fantasy Baseball: NL Outfielders

Opening Day is still over two months away, but it's never too soon for draft prep. ADP data from early NFBC rankings can give us a glimpse into what other owners are thinking heading into a new campaign. Today I'll be taking a look at undervalued and overvalued NL Outfielders, to try and help identify draft targets and avoids based on ADPs. Editor's note: Be sure to also check out our 2017 fantasy baseball rankings dashboard. It's already loaded up with tons of great rankings articles and...

Champ or Chump: Logan Forsythe and Justin Turner

I read something the other day referring to the Yankees as possible "AL Dodgers" due to their ability to spend. I thought LA's limitless payroll made them the NL's Yankees, but apparently the team is the new "Evil Empire." Regardless of their reputation, the team has kept its offseason under control. Balking at Minnesota's asking price for Brian Dozier, the team acquired Logan Forsythe from Tampa Bay to fill their hole at second base. They also resigned Justin Turner, keeping the 2016 team together instead of looking for...

Fantasy Implications of Steve Pearce Joining the Toronto Blue Jays

Welcome back, RotoBallers, to our ongoing series on MLB player outlooks and free agent signings. In case you missed them, you can see our earlier columns on various 2017 player outlooks including those who changed teams. On December 5, the Blue Jays signed one of my favorite Orioles, Steve Pearce, to a two-year deal despite his ongoing recovery from flexor tendon surgery. This article will discuss what to expect from Pearce as a Blue Jay in 2017. Editor's note: Be sure to also check out our 2017...

Champ or Chump: Kendrys Morales and Jose Bautista

Toronto has had a polarizing offseason to say the least. Faced with the possibility of losing two of their trademark sluggers, the team jumped on DH Kendrys Morales with a long term contract to fill the void. The move was questioned at the time, and looked even worse when the market refused to pay for sluggers. They saved some face by re-signing Jose Bautista later on, but Canadian baseball fans will not enjoy watching Edwin Encarnacion in a Tribe uniform. Toronto still projects to have a plus lineup...

Champ or Chump: Jarrod Dyson and Ian Desmond

Welcome back RotoBallers, to my ongoing series of Champs or Chumbs. I take a look at different MLB players, and determine if they truly will be viable fantasy baseball assets in 2017. Fantasy owners have a need for speed that blows the value of the stolen base way out of proportion relative to the real game. Now that Jarrod Dyson has been traded to Seattle, he may be able to provide it. Ian Desmond signed for $70 million earlier in this offseason, but no one seems to know why. Let's...

2016 In Review: Outfield (OF) Breakouts

Our review of the 2016 fantasy baseball season continues with a look at some more breakout performances in the outfield. Breakout Outfielders in 2016 Jackie Bradley, Boston Red Sox

Bradley technically broke out last August, when he hit .354 with five homers across 79 AB. He had been largely considered a Quad-A player — someone who tore apart Triple-A pitching but couldn’t make the adjustment to the big leagues — before putting it all together late in 2015. He endured yet another slow start in 2016, but exploded in May, slashing .381/.474/.701

...

2016 In Review: Outfield (OF) Values

Our review of the 2016 fantasy baseball season continues with a look at some of the best values in the outfield. Value Outfielders in 2016 Khris Davis, Oakland Athletics Davis was the 54th outfielder off the board in 2016 drafts by FantasyPros’ ADP. He significantly outperformed that modest position, walloping 42 homers, scoring 85 runs, and driving in 102 – all career bests. This production was even more impressive when you consider that Oakland Coliseum is one of the worst parks in the league for right-handed power and the lineup around him...

2016 In Review: Outfield (OF) Breakouts

Our review of the 2016 fantasy baseball season continues with a look at some of the breakout performances in the outfield. Breakout Outfielders in 2016 Trea Turner, Washington Nationals Turner was an absolute stud in his rookie year, hitting .342/.370/.567 with 13 homers, 53 runs, and 33 steals in just 73 games. As always, it’s important to resist the urge to simply extrapolate those numbers to a full season and assume that’s what Turner will produce in 2017. There are plenty of reasons to expect regression. Turner’s power surge looks like a fluke....

Reviewing Harris Yudin's Bold Predictions for 2016

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.

Reviewing Nick Mariano's Bold Predictions for 2016

Hello you beautiful RotoBallers, and welcome to this little retrospective ditty where I look back at my 10 Bold Predictions from before the 2016 baseball season started. Perhaps you’ve seen some of my fellow writers doing the same lately, but obviously there is only one Nick Mariano. Let’s see how ya boy did.

Deeper Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 25 (National League)

This is the end... my only friend, the end... For some fantasy baseball owners, the season was a brutal mix of frustration and disappointment. If you're reading this, however, you're still grinding and looking for a chance to pull out a late-season victory. Good luck the rest of the way! This list represents players who haven't yet garnered a great deal of attention in mixed-leagues, streaming options suitable only for deeper leagues, or category specialists who may fill a specific need on your NL-only roster. Fantasy owners needing help should be on the lookout...

Byron Buxton (OF, MIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 47% of Fleaflicker Leagues EXPERT ANALYSIS: Top prospect Byron Buxton's final 2016 numbers will tell the story of a disappointing rookie season filled with high expectations that weren't met. A .218/.271/.402 slash line with seven HR, 31 RBI and nine steals are a far cry from the talks of a 20/20 season and a Rookie of the Year award. The final chapter of that story has shown promise for next season, however, as he is gradually...

Week 25 Waiver Wire Pickups: Outfield

It's Week 25, also known as the final week of the season for the two teams contending for the championship. The waiver wire is sparse with talent that will truly push a team over the final hill. After all, you're going up against the best team in your league (aside from your own, of course). However, there are a few key players that have become must add assets for teams owners on the final leg of their journey. At this point, the previous four and a half months of the season...

Deeper Waiver Wire Pickups For Week 25 (American League)

The Athletics may have one of the worst records in the Majors this year at 66-84 going into Tuesday, and they may be 22.5 games behind the first place Rangers. But with the team striking gold multiple times this year with inexperienced and rookie players during the second half--including third baseman Ryon Healy, starting pitcher Sean Manaea and relief pitcher...

Top Hitter Waiver Wire Streamers for Week 25

Whether it’s because of an injury or poor performance, there are always opportunities to stream players off the waiver wire. The best players to stream are those who are under-owned and face appealing match-ups for the upcoming week. Here are five players who are readily available in Fleaflicker leagues and have attractive match-ups during the 25th week of the season.

Cameron Maybin (OF, DET) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move: Add in 12+ Team Leagues Owned in: 24% of Fleaflicker Leagues Analysis: Cameron Maybin can run fast, and make contact with the ball. That has given him plenty of value manning the outfield for the Tigers this season. First off, Maybin is weirdly good when playing at home. In 124 away AB this season he has a slash line of just .242/.312/.290, but when playing at home he is slashing .370/.436/.481. Maybin's season started off...

Randal Grichuk (OF, STL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 47% of Fleaflicker Leagues EXPERT ANALYSIS: Randal Grichuk is doing his best to salvage a disappointing season. As someone who took a chance on Grichuk in multiple leagues as a starting OF, it was tough to see him grind through a slow start, hitting .189 in April with just three HR. He finished the first half of the year hitting .226/.287/.425 with a modest 10 HR and 31 RBI. That's not what fantasy owners were hoping for,...

Deeper Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 24 (National League)

Football season is officially underway, but us die-hard baseball fans are still dedicated to the grind all the way to the bitter end. Whether you're in a crucial playoff battle or just hoping to stay out of the cellar, there are still waiver wire options that can improve your squad. This list represents players who haven't yet garnered a great deal of attention in mixed-leagues, streaming options suitable only for deeper leagues, or category specialists who may fill a specific need on your NL-only roster. Fantasy owners needing help should be on the lookout...

Week 24 Waiver Wire Pickups: Outfield

In the playoffs, every category counts. You could be dominating the major columns like batting average and ERA, but have your success undermined by saves and stolen bases. Remember, if your teams hits 30 more home runs than your opponent, it's just as valuable as winning the stolen bases category by a margin of 2-to-1. Fantasy baseball is a game of chess. It's essential to know how to pick your battles. That's why we're here to remind you to diagnose the specific problems with your team heading into these final matchups...

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). Brock Stewart and Jharel...

The Cut List (Week 23): Players To Consider Cutting Bait On

It's playoff time folks! If you've made it this far congratulations. Whether you're in the winners' bracket or just playing for pride, it's time to make some tough decisions to end your seasons on a high note. And with that, if you have someone who is really becoming a waste of roster space, it's time to get rid of him. The longer you hang on, the lower your chances are of making the playoffs and winning your leagues. In that spirit, I'm doing away with the Reverse Jinx section just to...

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...

Top Hitter Waiver Wire Streamers for Week 23: September Call-Up Edition

Whether it’s because of an injury or poor performance, there are always opportunities to stream players off the waiver wire. The best players to stream are those who are under-owned and face appealing match-ups for the upcoming week. Here are five players who are readily available in Fleaflicker leagues and have attractive match-ups during the first full week of September.

Scott Schebler (OF, CIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 8% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: While Jose Peraza, the big-name acquisition from the Todd Frazier deal, has turned quite a few heads lately, lesser known prospect Scott Schebler has been wrecking his way into the spotlight. First off, he was tearing it up at Triple-A Louisville. In just 319 PA he had two...

Aaron Altherr (OF, PHI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: At 25 years old with a potent potential for power/speed production, Aaron Altherr might be just what the rebuilding Phillies squad needs in the coming seasons. He only took 41 AB in the minors this year and has had just 118 in the majors as well. In that time he has a slash line of just .229/.295/.364, but he also has four HR...

David Dahl (OF, COL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 55% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: While we know that playing in Coors Field is certainly good for an offensive boost, that should in no way take away from what David Dahl has managed to do at the MLB level in 2016. He started off with 350 total AB across the Double-A and Triple-A levels and produced 18 HR, 49 XBH, 17 SB, and a slash line of .314/.394/.569. Dahl has had very similar performances...

Melvin Upton Jr. (OF, TOR) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 43% of Fleaflicker Leagues EXPERT ANALYSIS: The ballad of Melvin Upton Jr. may have a happy ending this season after all. Upton had a career revival with San Diego the first half, posting 16 HR and 20 SB. Since being traded to Toronto, he hasn't looked comfortable at the plate, hitting just .214/.252/.350 since moving up north. As a result, he has bounced all around the lineup in an attempt to find a comfort zone. Lately, Upton seems...

Ender Inciarte (OF, ATL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 37% of Fleaflicker Leagues EXPERT ANALYSIS: The majority of Ender Inciarte's counting stats are easy to ignore for fantasy purposes, but he is quietly starting to score runs at a high rate. In the last 28 days, he has scored 21 runs and is hitting .346 in that span as well. He is currently working on an eight-game hitting streak, not long after he finished up a 19-game hitting streak in early August. Recent upgrades in Atlanta's lineup,...

Alex Gordon (OF, KC) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 57% of Fleaflicker Leagues EXPERT ANALYSIS: To say Alex Gordon has had a disappointing year would be a massive understatement. A .229 average and just 29 RBI in 346 AB for a player who has been in the All-Star game three years running place him in contention for biggest bust of the year among batters. August has been a complete anomaly, however, as Gordon suddenly has decided to pick up the pace. In the last four weeks, Gordon...

The Cut List (Week 22): Players To Consider Cutting Bait On

What's up RotoBallers. There are only six weeks left in the regular season, meaning the playoffs are either starting or only a couple of weeks away. Needless to say, it's no time to hold onto guys out of sentimental value. And with that, if you have someone who is really becoming a waste of roster space, it's time to get rid of him. The longer you hang on, the lower your chances are of making the playoffs and winning your leagues. In that spirit, I'm doing away with the Reverse Jinx...

MLB Ready Prospects: Top 30 Fantasy Rankings for Impact Rookies (Week 22)

Welcome back RotoBallers. This will be last Top 30 fantasy prospect rankings columns before rosters expand, and will likely be one of the last article series formatted like this until the offseason. As I mentioned in the last article, there are some players who definitely have September value and most of these guys will be valuable to owners in some kind of format. Right now, I would really only say that the top six guys are going to have value in all leagues, but everyone on this list would have some value, even...

Top Hitter Waiver Wire Streamers for Week 22

Whether it’s because of an injury or poor performance, there are always opportunities to stream players off the waiver wire. The best players to stream are those who are under-owned and face appealing match-ups for the upcoming week. Here are five players who are readily available in Fleaflicker leagues and have attractive match-ups during the last full week of August. Editor's Note: Purchase a full season NFL Premium Pass (including Draft Kit + DFS Premium), and also get MLB Premium + DFS for free through October. Premium DFS lineup picks, expert lineups, tools...

Jose Peraza (2B/SS/OF, CIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ team leagues OWNED IN: 3% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: What started off as a very troubling MLB debut turned into an incredibly promising one for Jose Peraza. First off, no matter what, he is a big threat for stolen bases. In just 134 MLB AB since 2015 he already has 15 steals in 17 attempts for an efficient success rate of 88%. Also, in two seasons and just 769 AB across the Triple-A level, he has stolen...

Deeper Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 21 (National League)

Before we start, I'd like to apologize for putting Justin Bour on here a couple weeks ago - instead of coming off the DL, he gets transferred to the 60-day. Who knew? Just remember who told you to pick up Robbie Ray a week ago before he was trendy... This list represents players who haven't yet garnered a great deal of attention in mixed-leagues, streaming options suitable only for deeper leagues,...

Deeper Waiver Wire Pickups For Week 21 (American League)

We are one week away from the September 1st roster expansion date, when all teams bring up a ton of new players into the fantasy baseball player pool as everyone makes a mad dash for the finish line. Before that influx of talent clouds our attention, here are some players surging into September, most of which are hungry to earn 2017 jobs. All players are owned in 25% or less of Fleaflicker leagues. Editor's Note: Purchase a full season NFL Premium Pass (including Draft Kit + DFS Premium), and also get MLB Premium...

Travis Jankowski (OF, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of Fleaflicker Leagues EXPERT ANALYSIS: You have probably been hearing about Travis Jankowski's speed for the past several weeks and rightfully so. With 28 stolen bases, he is now sixth in the Majors, which is extraordinary considering he didn't become a starter until nearly midway through the year. He should be getting more due for his hitting, however, as he has increased his average to a more respectable .254. He is hitting .289 in the past...

Keon Broxton (OF, MIL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 26% of Fleaflicker Leagues EXPERT ANALYSIS: Sometimes the light bulb suddenly goes on for a player and everything clicks. Keon Broxton was hitting a paltry .163 on August 1st with two homers and eight steals to his name. Since then, he is slashing .328/.431/.574 with four HR, nine RBI and nine SB in just 61 at-bats. In fact, he has scored more runs in August (11) than he had in the previous four months combined (10). It...

Mitch Haniger (OF, ARI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep NL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 2% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Mitch Haniger demolished his way through the minors, posting a monstrous .325/.423/.588 line with 24 dingers, 10 steals and a whopping 86 RBI across two levels. Now, in eight games with the Diamondbacks, the 25-year-old has gone 8-for-30 with two doubles, a triple and five RBI. No homers and no steals so far, but they will surely come. However, ...
