This article appears courtesy of RotoExperts.com. We Fantasy team owners love to boast that we were the first in our league to find the next rookie sensation. I'm talking about a prospect who can provide a Fantasy team with an unexpected spark that will help propel it to a Fantasy championship. Despite all the detailed scouting reports and other resources at our disposal, finding that special rookie impact player is extremely difficult. You might end up falling in love with several rookies but despite all your draft prep, prospects are a volatile group and rostering too many of them can work against you because of their unpredictable nature. Try to limit your exposure to a select one or two that you feel … [Read more...] about Fantasy Baseball: 5 rookie hitters you should draft for 2018 MLB season

In my last post, I focused on position depth and average draft position based on ESPN fantasy baseball draft data.Today, I'd like to take a look at Yahoo draft data and see how it compares.One thing to keep in mind if you play in both ESPN and Yahoo leagues is the difference in position eligibility. Yahoo tends to have more players with multiple positions, especially among the top hitters. For example, the Chicago Cubs' Kris Bryant is eligible at third base and outfield in Yahoo leagues, but only third base in ESPN leagues. Atlanta's Freddie Freeman is eligible at first and third base in Yahoo, but only first in ESPN. The Cubs' Anthony Rizzo actually qualifies at first and second in Yahoo, but only first in ESPN.Here's a look at each position:CatcherIn ESPN leagues, the No. 5 catcher (Houston's Evan Gattis) didn't come off the board until the 15th round in 10-team leagues (148.2 ADP). In Yahoo leagues, the No. 5 catcher (Miami's J.T. Realmuto) is going in the 14th round at 136.1.If you … [Read more...] about Fantasy baseball draft prep: Comparing ESPN, Yahoo data

The Marlins sold off nearly every usable part on their MLB roster, sending the Yankees the NL MVP, and the Mariners a second baseman/leadoff man who will play outfield for the first time in his career. In addition, two NL teams got new hitters in the meat of their lineups, all thanks to a new direction in Miami. On top of that the Brewers signed a former farm hand, the Giants revamped with a couple of veterans, and … [Read more...] about Fantasy Baseball: Players in new places for the 2018 MLB season
The fantasy sports world has it own version of March Madness: fantasy baseball draft month.The season opens on March 29. And for the first time in 50 years, all 30 major league teams will play on opening day. So with real games just a little over three weeks away, it's time to get into draft-preparation mode.The thing I like to do at this point is look at players by position, determine how deep each position is and then factor in average draft position data from whichever fantasy site you're drafting on. This will give you an idea of how long you can wait in your draft before addressing a certain position. ADP data will obviously change as more drafts are held in the coming weeks, so keep that in mind.Catcher is a position you can wait until very late in your draft to address – unless you're really high on the New York Yankees' Gary Sanchez or San Francisco's Buster Posey. If you're not targeting either of those two, you could easily wait until at least the 16th … [Read more...] about Fantasy baseball draft prep: Focusing on position depth and average draft position
By Rudy Ropp | [email protected] | San Gabriel Valley Tribune PUBLISHED: March 5, 2018 at 11:08 pm | UPDATED: March 5, 2018 at 11:18 pm A fun little game I like to play is, “Who’s the next (insert name of breakout star from last season here)?” Living in SoCal, I particularly want to know, “Who’s the next Cody Bellinger?” The Dodgers first baseman came up to the big leagues on April 25 last season at age 21 and never looked back, going on to hit 39 home runs and unanimously win the NL Rookie of the Year Award. Despite playing just 21 total games at Triple-A and missing the Dodgers’ first 20 games of 2017, Bellinger posted team highs in runs (87), RBIs (97) and slugging percentage (.581) as well as homers. He even chipped in 10 stolen bases. If you owned Bellinger in fantasy baseball last season, you probably finished near or at the top of your league’s standings. That’s why I want to know if there’s any young player … [Read more...] about Fantasy baseball: Could Orioles’ Austin Hays or Dodgers’ Alex Verdugo be the next breakout star?
