A player's ADP often has little to do with how good he is and everything to do with how good other people think he is. In an age when young studs are favored over more established veterans, Manny Margot has still escaped notice by playing his home games in San Diego. Likewise, the narrative that... Read More

With Opening Day rapidly approaching, our experienced writers will be offering their most daring predictions for the 2018 fantasy baseball season. Many of my predictions over the years have been laughable at season’s end, but there have been several success stories, as well. Regardless, all predictions are based in trends and patterns, with just a... Read More

As the season inches closer, it is good to analyze the drafts that have already been conducted to see what players are over/under drafted, according to our rankings. While some fantasy owners cannot wait to draft their teams, they may be stuck with players that they could have acquired a round or so later. In... Read More

Continuing our look at prospects by division, let's take a look at the NL East. In this division more than others it's a case of the Haves vs the Have Nots when it comes to prospects. You have the Braves with an absolutely loaded minor league system, the Marlins making trades left and right to start... Read More

We are just days away from the regular season, so the crack staff at RotoBaller has updated their rankings one last time. We continue our review of the March update with a look at the starting pitcher ranks. Aces are drawing early attention, while numerous values still remain toward the end of fantasy drafts. Whether you... Read More

Several of my colleagues have already announced their Bold Predictions for the 2018 fantasy baseball season, and now it's my turn. This is my third year participating in this exercise. The first one was great, as I correctly predicted Steven Wright would matter in 2016 fantasy leagues. The second one wasn't, as I had a... Read More

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - I'm not big on the term "sleeper." When anybody with a computer and a working Internet connection can drill down deep into any player's performance with a few keystrokes and a couple of clicks, the odds of you catching any of your rivals truly sleeping...

BALLER MOVE: Target ~110 CURRENT ADP: 152 ANALYSIS: Michael Fulmer has been very good since being acquired by Detroit in a deal for Yoenis Cespedes. His rookie season was not one anticipated by many, including those in Detroit. Fulmer did not have the same success in his sophomore season, 3.83 ERA, which was contributed to a lack of strikeouts.... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~300 CURRENT ADP: 349 ANALYSIS: Steven Matz is trying to bounce back from the disaster that was 2017. Dealing with an elbow injury that led to surgery, Matz was 2-7 with a 6.08 ERA in 13 starts for the Mets, posting a 1.53 WHIP and 2.53 K:BB ratio. That being said, Matz was 13-8... Read More

As we steamroll toward Opening Day, our experienced writers will be offering their most bold predictions for the 2018 fantasy baseball season. These are always a fun exercise that allows us to really trumpet our more outlandish stances heading into 2017. I promise it comes from an educated place, but these are far from "probable"...

We are getting closer and closer to the first pitch of the 2018 MLB season. Spring training is in full swing which means we are right in the thick of draft season. Below you will find our updated head-to-head points league rankings for starting pitchers. In this article, I will be discussing the updates to... Read More

As we steamroll toward Opening Day, our experienced writers will be offering their most bold predictions for the 2018 fantasy baseball season. Although I will never be able to replicate last year's successes in calling Giancarlo Stanton's mammoth season, I will do my best. Feel free to ignore the majority of those other predictions from 2017.... Read More

The latter part of an auction draft is arguably the most fun part. All of the obvious players to own are long gone, and now owners must go searching through the coal to find the one diamond that will make the difference for their team. Owners were patting themselves on the back after finding $1... Read More

Previously, we looked at Barrels, a stat combining exit velocity and launch angle to measure how often a batter makes quality hard contact. As much as batters want to hit a Barrel every time, pitchers want to avoid them at all costs. Yet there is some evidence that pitchers do not have the same influence... Read More

Every day from now until Opening Day, our writers will be offering their most audacious projections for the 2018 fantasy baseball season. This is my fourth go-round with this series. I've had some great successes and some equally terrible calls in both previous attempts, and this year should be no different. Hopefully the former outweigh... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~190 CURRENT ADP: 218 By just glancing at his overall 2017 numbers, you probably wouldn’t be interested in drafting Snell this year. From 2016 to 2017, Snell’s ERA jumped from 3.54 to 4.04, while his K% dropped from 24.4% to 21.8%. While these numbers look bad, if we use the second half... Read More

If you are in a dynasty league, then the number one thing you likely focus on year-round are prospects. It's a never-ending hunt to find the best prospect and acquire them for the lowest cost possible. Not only are owners looking for the best prospect, they also have to discern whether or not they will... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~ 310 CURRENT ADP: 330 ANALYSIS: It seems like Eduardo Rodriguez has been talked about forever, but the power lefty only turns 25 in April; this is shocking to say the least. Rodriguez has had trouble staying on the field the past few seasons due to right knee injuries, but when healthy... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~170 CURRENT ADP:  211 ANALYSIS: The San Diego Padres pitching staff was one that could be largely ignored and/or avoided in 2017, but that all changed when Dinelson Lamet was recalled from Triple-A El Paso in May. Lamet was solid initially, but proceeded to give up seven earned runs in consecutive starts. It... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~315 CURRENT ADP: 334 ANALYSIS: Colorado Rockies starting German Marquez looked pretty amazing for a 22-year-old rookie who had to pitch in Coors for half of his games. That does not mean his overall numbers are very good, but that’s quite a rough hand to be dealt at the ripe old age of 22.... Read More

RotoBallers Andrew Le and Matt Wilkes recently faced off to discuss two strikeout-savvy pitchers, Robbie Ray and Yu Darvish. ADPs for both pitchers are eerily close and we hope the following battle helps fantasy managers make a (slightly) more educated decision. In the red and black jersey playing for the Arizona Diamondbacks, standing 6'2" and... Read More

Spin rate has become one of the most recognizable Statcast metrics, with supporters of a given pitcher highlighting his spin rates to make their case. Unfortunately, the baseball world has done a lousy job conveying what spin rate really means. The result has been a ton of owners who know that spin rate exists, but... Read More

The 2017 offseason has been wild thus far and many top pitchers have changed addresses since the season ended. There were a lot of rumors of trades for big name pitchers this offseason, namely Chris Archer and Gerrit Cole, so the interest in trades slowed the process a bit on the free agent market. Teams... Read More

This column usually places a strong emphasis on regression, or why you shouldn't expect last year's production from a given player. Sometimes a player breaks out in a sustainable manner, however, making them a good investment even if you need to pay a premium based on the previous year's performance. Robbie Ray provides an excellent... Read More

Conventional baseball wisdom harps on the importance of the first-pitch strike (F-strike%). As pitchers get ahead in counts, they gain an advantage on hitters and have more pitch choices at their disposal. However, smart people discovered a hitter's average with a 0-1 count (.321) is only marginally worse than a 1-0 count (.337). The pitch... Read More

One of the most fundamental questions in fantasy sports is if a player's current performance is sustainable. More than any other sport, baseball has a slew of statistical measures that can be dissected numerous ways to analyze player performance. Pitch Info is a publicly available pitch tracking system that provides a lot of different data... Read More

Some fantasy owners prioritize upside over everything else in their draft. Upside wins leagues! Upside makes your team more exciting to follow! Upside encourages you to draft Byron Buxton and hold onto him until his lack of production has doomed you to the second division of your league! Upside doesn't win leagues, profit potential does.... Read More

We continue our series of articles debating the overall ranking of some of the most fantasy-relevant players of the 2018 baseball season with a player who broke out in 2016 and showed flashes of brilliance in 2017. Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Danny Duffy is a mid-round pick who has shown incredible upside since joining... Read More

Best ball leagues are one of the latest variations of fantasy baseball that are quickly growing in popularity. Draft day is the only day of the year where owners will have control over their roster. There is no waiver wire and there are no trades. Owners won't even set daily lineups, as they will instead... Read More

When discussing fantasy baseball, an often neglected but entertaining format is the points league. These exist in both season-long cumulative and weekly head-to-head leagues. While existential debates about scoring categories and their true depiction of player worth are endless, points leagues arguably get closest to the objective of sabermetrics. Points leagues attempt to define a... Read More
