1007/1007
May move from 2nd to 3rd in the batting order, which may reduce overall stolen bases. A no-brainer 1st oveall pick in 2015 drafts. Some chinks in the armor: His decrease in SBs: 49 --> 33 --> 16. Batting eye (walks divided by strikeouts): .48 --> .80 --> .45. Only 23 years old and plenty of room to grow and mature. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Contributes to all 5 hitting categories. 4 consecutive years with 20+ HR and 3 consecutive years with .300+ BA. Age 28. Only 21 SB attempts last season, but August rib injury may explain the drop. Not betting on a repeat in 2015, especially where he is being drafted at either pick 2 or 3. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Rebounded from an injury risk and played 145 games last season. Led the NL in HR, SLG, TB, intentional walks. Spike in SB with 13 out of 14 attempts. Look for some AVG and SB regression but draft with confidence. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Led MLB in ERA for 4th consecutive season. My personal philosophy is not to take a pitcher in the early rounds, let alone in round 1. I've projected some regression for 2015. At his peak at age 27. Lot's of good SPs to draft this year. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Coming off an outstanding 2013, Goldschmidt broke his left hand which ended his season after 109 games. At age 27, healthy, can hit .300, and the ability to steal 10+ bases, I'd rather own him than Cabrera in 2015. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Last year's 25/101/109 season is a realistic floor and round 1 is all about finding a guy that won't hurt you. (Jon Collins, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.lockerroomfantasysports.com'>Fantasy Sports LR</a>, 1 day ago)
Two straight seasons with a .284 BA. Peaking at age 29. He is like Andrew McCutchen, but with more SBs and can be drafted 4-8 picks later. Hit .255 after all star break and is a .260 career hitter, but excelled in September. Top 10 player past 2 years. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
With last year's .356 BABIP in mind, you're likely to see a BA regression. With steady power numbers, you're unlikely to care. (Jon Collins, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.lockerroomfantasysports.com'>Fantasy Sports LR</a>, 1 day ago)
First full injury-free season in 3 years. AVG increase attributed to his willingess to beat the shift and hit to right field. Age 34. Still a power-producing player, but not 1st round worthy with age and injury concerns. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Now 32 years old. Encarnacion has started the decline in production, but he is the only player in the past 3 years to hit 30 home runs . The addition of Josh Donaldson is a plus. If Encarnacion stays healthy, he is a solid pick. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Model of consistency at age 29, you can pencil in Jones for close to 30 HRs, 100 RBIs, 10 SB, a .280 BA, and most importantly, 160 games played. Baltimore finished last in SBs with 44, so let's hope Showalter runs more this season. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
I don't project Hernandez to produce the same stats from 2014 and see his ERA and WHIP closer to 3.00 and 1.10, so expect some regression. Great SP, but not first round worthy at age 29. Fastball dropped to 92.4 MPH. Won't repeat the .260 BABIP. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
A rising star at age 25, Rizzo will see more RBI opportunities in 2015 as he saw 50 fewer batters on base that the average hitter last season. Back injury a minor concern. Finished 2nd in HR in the NL last season. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Move from the AL to the NL will help with ERA and WHIP, but will hurt W and run support. Led the AL in Ks with 252 and 3rd in Ws with 18. K's should increase. Age 30. Low SP1 or High SP2 works here. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Only player (along with Miguel Cabrera) to hit .300+ over the past 6 seasons. He averaged 28 HRs over the past 5 seasons with NYY, but a move to SEA cost him considerable HRs and RBIs. Age 32. GB rate all time high at 52.6%. The glory days are over. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Atluve is an excellent source of stolen bases and batting average, which he both lead in the AL last season, but I can find comprable stats later on the draft. I see his AVG closer to .300 than .340. No way he has another .360 BABIP. Low HR & RBI. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Hitting 21 home runs in only 91 games last season is impressive. The never ending problem with Tulo is his health. And each year people say that this is his year and it never happends. Averages 74 missed games over the past 3 seasons. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Better place discipline with increased walks and decreased strikeouts. Poor baserunning skills led to almost a 50% CS rate. More of an OF2 than an OF1. Take a chance in round 4, but let him be on someone's team in round 3. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Moves from spacious Oakland to hitter friendly Toronto this season. Will improve from .278 BABIP with a better lineup and batting 5th will lead to more RBI opportunities. Target him in all of your drafts. Fantasy MVP. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Led MLB in runs with 111 as he was moved from 8th to 2nd in the order. Skeptical about his SBs with a combined 1 SB in the previous 2 seasons. Has both 2B and 3B eligibility. Not 1st round worthy. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Age 36, but shows no sign of "significant" decline. Only 6 HRs after the all star break. HRs: 36 --> 30 --> 19. RBI: 102 --> 92 --> 77. BA still intact. I'd rather be a year too early than late. Tough to draft in rounds 2 or early round 3. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Updaetd 3/8/15: Chris Sale said Saturday that his injured right foot is progressing on schedule and he hopes not to miss any regular season action. An early season forearm strain has owners worried, but he recovered and led the AL in dominace with 10.76 (K/9), 2nd in ERA (2.17), and 2nd in WHIP (0.97). He's had forearm issues 3 years in a row, so red flags abound. Top e... (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
2014 xFIP (Expected Fielder Independent Pitching) was 2.56, well below his actual ERA of 3.14. Tied for the NL lead in K's with 242. Removed from Tommy John surgery and pitched 215 IP last season. Draft with confidence. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Outstanding post season led to a world series MVP. He's now on everyone's radar and will be drafted earlier than his ADP. 270 IP including playoffs. Great SP, but remember that pitching is deep this season. Wait on SP and you will be rewarded. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
In 5 out of the last 6 seasons, Ramirez had less than 500 AB. Moving to Boston and having the ability to DH as times will help, but let him be someone else's problem. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Fantasy baseball league managers must determine fact vs. fluke through statistics. Are the HR and SB real? I'm betting fluke. Only 5 HRs after all star break and no change in his fly ball rate. BABIP and HR/FB rate above career average. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Only player to go 20/20 for the last 3 seasons. You can't ignore the 20+ HRs for the 3rd straight year. 154+ games 4 out of the last 5 seasons. Look for a rebound in BA closer to .280. In a contract year. Draft him over Tulo as the first SS off the board. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
2012 AL Cy Young Award winner, returned to form in 2014 as he was traded from TB to DET last summer. 271 Ks in 248 1/3 IP. Strikeout machine and on a winning team. Money. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Ellsbury has a 90% SB success rate over the past 3 seasons. Finished September with hamstring injury. He is pretty much a 10 HR and 40 SB player. I can get that out of other players later on in the draft. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
A lingering thumb injury kept Braun's stats down all season, but still respectable. He had successful off season thumb surgery, but I don't feel all giddy with an early 3rd round pick on Braun. His past steriod usage can't be ignored. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
2014 AL CY Young award winner. A 2.57xFIP was close to his actual 2.44 ERA. Some regression is expected, but still an SP1. He has only done this once, and will go in the 3rd round. Age 29. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Upton already hit in a pitcher-friendly park in Atlanta, and now moves to the toughest hitting park in the NL in SD. Age 27. Great in monthly fantasy leagues, especially in April. Steady player, but never elite. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Injuries have prevented Harper from becoming an elite fantasy player. Harper comes with many question marks. Will he stay healthy? Contact skill increase? Stolen bases? High risk/reward. Age 22. Don't reach, but draft him on the cheap in round 3 or 4. This is the year. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Atlanta's offense was bad last year and Freeman's numbers suffered across the board. He tried to carry the team, but could not do it all. The offense is going to be even worse this season. A 20 HR and 80 RBI may be the ceiling. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Durability over the past 3 seasons. Will be the first catcher off the board. But to get Posey, you have to invest a 2nd round draft pick. It all depends on your draft strategy. I personally wait on catchers and get something comperable, rounds later. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Updated on 3/8/2015: Two weeks ago, he received a lubricating injection in his right elbow. Greinke threw off a mound to hitters on 3/6 and said he has not had any problems with his arm since receiving treatment. Age 32. Overshadowed by Clayton Kershaw. A solid SP pick. 2.72 xFIP. Good for 15 wins and 200+ Ks. Cautiously optimistic. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Is going to be one of the cheapest routes to find a reliable .280, 25 HR, 100 RBI hitter (Brandon Funston, <a target='_blank' href='http://sports.yahoo.com/fantasy'>Yahoo! Sports</a>, 4 days ago)
Entering his prime at age 26, Dickerson is on the brink of fantasy stardom. Look for a significant increase in playing time and 436 at bats from last season. Pick to click! (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Led the NL in IP with 243.2 and Ks with 242. Incredible BABIP at .238. ERA less than 3.00 for 4 consecutive years. One of the best SP1's at a bargain price. Buy. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Age 35. Saw a lot of good RBI opportunities hitting behind Mike Trout. A career .317 hitter, but the underlying stats are beginning to erode as he has averaged .265 over the past 2 seasons. Let someone else draft him for the name as he's on the decline. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Age 29, but has missed playing time 5 consecutive seasons. The drop in SBs is a major red flag. Knee surgery in August. Twenty HRs and 10 SBs are now the new ceiling. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Marte is an interesting study. His BABIP is .363, but strikes out about 25% of the time. Marte's value has a lot to where he hits in the batting order and it is all over the place. He's a 10 HR 30 SB and .285 hitter tops. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Quad injury is now healed, I am projecting the potential for a 30 HR and 15 SB season. You just have to live with a batting average around .230. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Sharp boost in K rate (8.20) in '14 has boosted this control artist to the back end of the ace crop (Brandon Funston, <a target='_blank' href='http://sports.yahoo.com/fantasy'>Yahoo! Sports</a>, 4 days ago)
Near-lock for close to 200 Ks, 3.00 ERA, but landing outside top 70 SPs in run support past 2 seasons has crushed Wins (trade, please) (Brandon Funston, <a target='_blank' href='http://sports.yahoo.com/fantasy'>Yahoo! Sports</a>, 4 days ago)
Kemp had his first 500+ AB year in 3 seasons. Great 2nd half of the seaason after ankle issues in the first half. Traded to San Diego in December. The move from LA to SD's PETCO may be slightly neutral. Age 30. OF2 (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Age 32. Only 160 games played in 1 out of the last 6 seasons. SBs are in decline with his age. Hamstring issues all last season. Injury issues abound. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Now in Detroit Cespedes should pile up the RBI's with a HR total in the low twenties, a decent amount of runs scored and an average that shouldn't hurt or help you. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Age 31. Lester moves from the AL (Boston and Oakland) to the NL (Chicago Cubs). I am projecting a 15+ win, 200+ K season. A nice SP to target in rounds 5 or 6 after the top SPs are off the board. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
The 6 HRs were a bonus, but don't expect that in 2015. The concern here is the 23 CS as Hamilton is going to have to be more successful on the base paths this season. Being drafted too early. Pass on round 4. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Big Papi has been my 1B or DH so many times I've lost count. At 39 years of age this may be his last chance, but I doubt I will roster him in many places. While I expect 20-25 HR's and good counting stats with an average in the .270's I cant avoid the fact that at some point the train could very well go off the cliff, and it won't bet one of those magical Back to the Futur... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Top 25 fantasy finish in '14 - Shedding durability question mark with 155+ games played in 3 of past 4 seasons (Brandon Funston, <a target='_blank' href='http://sports.yahoo.com/fantasy'>Yahoo! Sports</a>, 4 days ago)
I typically don't pay for saves, but if you want a closer with dominant skills then Chapman should be the first closer drafted. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Arenado had a fantastic sophomore season despite only playing in 111 games due to injury. Now fully healthy he should be in line for another solid year, but don't have too high of expectations. That said even if he takes a step backwards he will be cushioned by the thin air in Colorado for half of his games. It's nice when there's some risk accompanied by built in equity. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Healthy now after neck injury cost him most of '14 season - before that he posted 25+ HRs in 8 straight seasons (Brandon Funston, <a target='_blank' href='http://sports.yahoo.com/fantasy'>Yahoo! Sports</a>, 4 days ago)
Age 29. Two years in a row with staying healthy. Slugging Percentage (SLG) drop to .404 a red flag. Lacks plate discipline as he's piled up the K's over the past two seasons. Project 20-25 Hrs and 80-85 RBIs, with a .255 BA. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Last year's 20 steals were a bonus you shouldn't count on again, but, Frazier won't hurt you in any one category. (Jon Collins, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.lockerroomfantasysports.com'>Fantasy Sports LR</a>, 1 day ago)
Age 34. He had cartilage removed at the end of the 2014 season. Elbow soreness all season. I'm taking the under of 180 IP this season. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Harvey's back after missing the entirety of the 2014 season recovering from Tommy John. We're not really sure what to expect, but Harvey had quite possibly the game's best slider before getting hurt, and would have been a Cy Young contender if Clayton Kershaw went into carpentry instead of baseball. (Tim Young, <a target='_blank' href='http://mlbsoup.com/'>MLB Soup</a>, 18 days ago)
Should be the first or second closer off the board this season. The Braves should be in some close games this year, so don't shy away from him as the overall wins for the Braves should decrease. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Seager has improved his AVG, OBP & SLG in all four of his MLB seasons. I expect that trend to continue and for Seager to again contribute in all 5 categories. Now heading into his age 27 season he will be hitting behind Cano and in front of Cruz in a stronger Mariners offense. Draft away. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Age 35. Led MLB in HRs with 40. Moves from Baltimore to Seattle this season, so look for a serious drop in HRs and RBIs. See Robinason Cano's move to Seattle last season as a reference. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
It's amazing how consistent Matt Holliday has been into his 30s. His AVG dipped below .295 for the first time in a decade, but his other numbers remained strong. The man hasn't aged yet, so why expect it now? 2015 might actually be better than 2014 for Holliday. (Tim Young, <a target='_blank' href='http://mlbsoup.com/'>MLB Soup</a>, 18 days ago)
For all the love Freeman still gets Votto is a very similar player. Besides age and recent health the differences are that Joey has had the breakout power years and he has a much better home ballpark and lineup around him. I expect similar stats from the two with Joey edging Freddie in nearly every category. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
It's hard to believe that while he's going into his 6th season as a pro Heyward is still just 25 years old. Expect another solid season of 30+ HR+SB with a bunch of runs scored along with a decent average and RBI total. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Age 36. The power surge is not legit. I don't see him repeating the 1.67 batting eye, or the FB% of 38.1. I have him projected closer to 20 HR than another 32 HR campaign. May have duel eligability at 1B with 35 games played in 2014. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Yelich should be in for 30-35 HR+SB along with a solid average, a healthy amount of runs scored and a decent RBI total. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Converted 46 of 48 save opportunities. WHIP was just .91. Electric stuff. (Marc Caviglia, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.brunoboys.net/'>Bruno Boys</a>, 1 day ago)
Dee Gordon has little plate discipline with a BB/K ratio of 31/107. He's a one trick pony with 64 stolen bases. I have projected his average to be closer to .250 than .290. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
I love Alex Gordon as a player but have slid him back roughly 10 spots in the rankings because of concern over his recovery from wrist surgery. Even though he's projected to be ready by opening day the injury may sap some of his power and could also affect his average. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Dozier had shown pop in '13, but broke out in a big way last season to the tune of 21 HR's, 23 SB's and 112 runs scored. Those numbers may regress a bit, but you'll be able to stomach the poor average (expect .240-.250) if he makes another push at 20/20 and scores 90 runs atop a Twins lineup that is better than you think. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Davis took a huge step backwards last year, but if you read my ADP article that grenade didn't go off in your hand. This year Crush could actually provide some nice value, as the 30 HR pop is still there and the 40 HR upside remains as well. Throw in some good counting stats and you'll be able to stomach the .240-.250 average. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
It appears that the 20 HR power is legit. Expect roughly 30 HR+SB and a healthy amount of runs with a solid average and you have yourself a very useful player in the fake game. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
After a disappointing season Kipnis is due to bounce back and deliver the power/speed combo we all expected last year. As long as you don't expect too much you'll be more than happy with 35-40 SB+HR and decent counting stats as he heads into his age 27 season. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
The news that Lucroy will miss some time in spring training with a hamstring injury is a little scary, as those injuries can linger. That said it's likely that he'll be healed and ready to go by opening day. He may be a bit rusty to start, but then should be a solid fake game contributor across all 5 categories. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Blackmon's a 20/20 player with a .285 - .290 AVG. Hard to go wrong with that. Only thing holding Blackmon back would be the Rockies lineup, but with a healthy Tulo, CarGo, and Arenado, there should be plenty of guys to push Blackmon across the plate. (Tim Young, <a target='_blank' href='http://mlbsoup.com/'>MLB Soup</a>, 18 days ago)
After several solid seasons Bruce completely fell off last year and he still managed 18 HR. If he bounces back at all his floor would resemble something like .240/60/20/70/7 while he's playing half of his games in that bandbox in Cincinnati. And to be fair he's still just 27 years old, so there is still plenty of upside here. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
While Carlos was able to tie his career high with 27 HR's last season he saw his AVG dip all the way down to .231. I expect another 20-25 HR this year along with a handful of SB's and good counting stats to go along with an AVG around .250. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Shields has risen 3 spots in my rankings since he was traded to SD where he could see a slight uptick in his K/9 and a slight down tick in ERA & WHIP. His durability has helped him log more than 200 innings for 8 consecutive years and because of this he has a rather high floor. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Prototypical SP2 with a very stable floor. While his K/9 has been in the mid 7's since he came to MLB he has been solidly reliable in ERA & WHIP and may be looking at a bump in wins because of the improved roster around him. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Wright has been a fantasy superstar for years, but he's coming off a season where he suffered a shoulder injury and posted the worst HR total and slugging % of his career. He chose to rehab the shoulder instead of having surgery and I'm scared his power could suffer as a result. If Wright can't hit the ball with authority his average could be severely affected as well. With hi... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Ozuna quietly had a very solid season in '14 slashing 72/23/85/3/.269 and should have a good shot of replicating those numbers in '15 in what is a better Marlins lineup than you think (and much improved over last year's lineup). (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Cobb is a breakout candidate because he has never thrown more than 160 innings, but has consistently had an ERA in the high 2's or low 3's along with a K/9 > 8 and a Whip around 1.1. If Cobb is able to log >200 innings he should easily be a top 20 SP. Update: Now dealing with forearm tendinitis Cobb will miss opening day and could obviously miss more time if the injury doesn...

Last year Mookie was on several of my fake teams down the stretch as he flashed a solid combination of power and speed to go along with a healthy batting average and good amount of runs scored. This year he'll be in Boston's OF but lucky for us he keeps his 2B positional flexibility. He won't be winning a batting title just yet, but a healthy combo of 35-40 SB+HR along with a ...

Gray got a bit more walk-happy than we would have liked last season, but he also threw more innings than he's ever thrown before, so excellence isn't neccesarily to be expected. He plays in a forgiving ballpark that can help make up for his walks, and he's only 25 years old. Gray should be great one day, and his time is now.

Wood was terrific last season and carries over his SP & RP eligibility giving him a little bump in value in some formats. While he may not pile up the wins on the hapless Braves he should positively contribute in every other category.

Mesoraco exploded with 25 HR in '14 while also notching an impressive 80 RBI and a .273 average. While I expect 15-20 HR I also expect the average to drop closer to his career average of .245 and roughly 15-20 less RBI. Still a valuable fake game asset behind the dish, but not the behemoth he was last season. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)

No longer the MVP he once was Pedroia is now fairly similar to Betts. Similar pop with less speed combined with a good average and a healthy run total. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Tyson Ross threw 41% sliders last year and had forearm soreness to end the season. Because of this I've moved him down roughly ten spots in my rankings and am generally staying away from him this season. Just too much risk in what is a very deep position. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
After back to back 20+ HR seasons Gattis is finally in line to get 550+ PA's and should eclipse 30 HR for the first time in his career. A coveted non catcher with catcher status Evan should also provide solid counting stats with the power; though his average will likely be in the .250-.260 range. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Alexei is the classic 15/15 shortstop. He's got the potential to raise both of those totals over 20, but that's unlikely. Group those totals with a .270-.280 AVG, solid RBI/Run totals, and basically zero injury history, and Alexei is the type of player that won't hurt you anywhere, while giving you solid production. (Tim Young, <a target='_blank' href='http://mlbsoup.com/'>MLB Soup</a>, 18 days ago)
After hitting 29 HR in '13 Carter exploded for 37 HR last season. In '15 he remains in his physical prime and could threaten 40 if healthy. Although the average will likely be in the .220's the monstrous HR totals and solid counting stats can't be ignored. If Carter has OF and/or 1B eligibility that only strengthens his versatility and value. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
For all the hype Castro gets every season we haven't seen him run much over the past 2 seasons. Even if he takes a step forward in the power department he won't be an elite option if he's not running at all. Not unless he also takes a big step forward in the batting average department. Because his growth is essentially built into his ADP it's unlikely I'll draft him o... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
I don't expect another 17 HR season, but 35 or so HR+SB and a healthy amount of runs scored should in the cards for the speedy Yankee. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
I've drafted him in 95% of leagues this season and I don't care if he is sent down to AAA. If the Cubs wait 12 days into the 2015 season to call up Bryant, he would finish 2015 with less than an one year of service time, 171 days total. I'm willing to play a backup at 3B until he is called up. He is the real deal. I'd rather own him than a hobbled Cabrera, ...

Betances absolutely broke out in 2014 and I was along for the ride in several leagues. Maybe I'm a tad biased because of it, but I expect more of the same in 2015. While Delin could lose some save chances to tough LHH because the Yankees also have Miller in their bullpen I expect Joe Girardi to again use Betances for more than one inning on several occasions. This helped him reach 84 ... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Gomes' LD% was through the roof last year without the resultant benefit in BABIP, and his HR/FB ratio was on track with career norms. In short, 2014's breakout season could be 2015's floor.

After flashing his pop in the postseason it will be interesting to see if the power surge continues. The HR upside is there, along with the speed, but also some drag on the batting average. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Rosenthal still had an effective season in '14, but he saw his walks per nine more than double and his K/9 drop nearly 2 K's per 9 innings pitched. It led to a bloated WHIP of 1.41 and the highest ERA of his professional career (3.2). Despite all of that he is still just 24 years old and firmly entrenched as the closer for the Cardinals who are seemingly always in contention (and ...

Trumbo only played 88 games in his first season with Arizona yet he was still able to notch 14 HR's.

Allen has been a very good RP since he debuted in 2012. He shined last season when handed the closing role. he even took a step forward in hits allowed per 9 and K/9 and could be on his way to elite status with another step forward this season. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Richards was on his way to a breakout season before he injured his knee in August. With an expected return in mid April he is going at a discount in drafts and will likely only miss a couple of starts. Because this is a knee injury I am not as concerned as I would be had it been arm related. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Carpenter was largely overvalued last year coming off of his huge '12 campaign and now it's fairly safe to say that the opposite is true. After a down season last year he is being fairly undervalued. Carpenter has good OBP skills and should be very good to elite in 2 categories while being decent in the others. Don't expect 115 runs or a .315 average, but don't miss out on...

Harrison had a strong 2014 season, no doubt, but he hit 100 points above his 2013 BABIP, rarely walks, and saw an increase in K% last year. His .315 average is going to be tough to sustain, though, the counting stats should be fine with a return to every day at bats at 3B. (Jon Collins, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.lockerroomfantasysports.com'>Fantasy Sports LR</a>, 1 day ago)
Hosmer had another down season last year; although he did play extremely well in the postseason for the streaking Royals. Still only 25 yers old Hosmer should push 25+ HR+SB along with decent counting stats and a solid average in the .270's (for this bunch anyway). A decent late round flier there's always the chance that Hosmer finally puts it all together and breaks out.

Walker doesn't do any one thing great, but he does everything well, and there's value in that.

Jansen just had foot surgery and will be sidelined until mid April at the earliest and mid May at the latest. Even though he will miss time I'm not worried about the injury as it's not related to his arm in any way. That said he will miss some time so he has been slightly downgraded.

Belt hit 7 homers in April before a May 9 thumb injury sapped him of his power the rest of the way, leading to an 18.0% LD rate that was considerably lower than his previous two seasons. Healthy in 2015, expect a breakout year from Belt. (Jon Collins, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.lockerroomfantasysports.com'>Fantasy Sports LR</a>, 1 day ago)
It's amazing to think that Andrus is only 26 years old. That means that, even though he's coming off of 2 rough years, we shouldn't be expecting his best years to be behind him. That said, he only appears to be good for a bunch of stolen bases at this point. Potential is there, but if you want to take that risk, you better have a backup plan.

Duda quietly notched 30 HR"s last year (if that's possible) in an impressive campaign that saw him finish 72nd overall in the Yahoo game.

Although Lynn's K/9 dropped to 8 last year (down from 8.8 in '13 and 9.2 in '12) his ERA & WHIP also dropped; making it much more manageable for his fake game owners. He is as reliable as an SP3 can be and he pitches for a winning team. Draft away. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Injuries hurt his final numbers, but Choo needs a big bounceback in 2015 to be useful. There are more intriguing players at this stage of the draft, particularly if he isn't running. (Jon Collins, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.lockerroomfantasysports.com'>Fantasy Sports LR</a>, 1 day ago)
Murphy saw his SB's drop from his career high in '13 last season, but still put up decent numbers across all five categories. Look for him to continue that this season. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
After back to back 25+ HR seasons Moss has joined the Indians and could hit clean up in a fairly balanced lineup.

I had Rios on several teams last year and man was he underwhelming. Instead of walking away I'm buying in again, this time at a highly reduced price.

Rollins had a monster season in '14 hitting 17 HR's and stealing 28 bags while notching useful counting numbers. Although he's entering his age 36 season he's in a much better lineup and should again push 30-35 HR+SB while accruing better counting numbers. Just be sure you and your fake team can stomach his average, as it will likely be in the .230-.250 range. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Yadi missed some time with injury in '14, but it appears he's also in the midst of a gradual decline in his offensive skill set. I no longer expect a .300 average and 10-15 HR's with solid counting stats. Maybe 10-12 HR with an average in the .280's is more reasonable as Yadi heads into his age 32 season.

Zobrist contributes across the board and provides sneaky production everywhere. And the multiple position eligibility is obviously nice as well.

Big things were expected in McCann's first year in NY and although he failed to meet them he still hit 66/26/76 albeit with a .244 AVG.

(Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Street doesn't have the ridiculous K/9 that most of these other RP's do, but he consistently has solid ratios and he converts a high percentage of saves.

Benoit goes under the radar a bit because he was a set up man for a long time, but he has been tremendously productive in 4 of the last 5 seasons. Now the clear closer in San Diego he should be looking at a ton of save opportunities while playing half of his games in the best pitcher's park in the league. Don't underestimate the value Benoit brings to the table in 2015. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
If Papelbon is traded it will likely be to a team with an injured or ineffective closer so he'll likely retain his closer status.

Although Bailey has had some setbacks he is still in line to be ready for the start of the season.

Segura is coming off of a miserable sophomore/junior slump filled with a brutal OBP and personal tragedy. The good news is that he put together a respectable second half of 2014, mostly due to an impressive September. I'd expect him to drive the ball better this year, and a higher OBP will come with a return of his massive SB numbers. (Tim Young, <a target='_blank' href='http://mlbsoup.com/'>MLB Soup</a>, 18 days ago)
Can will continue to run and his speed leaves him a good candidate to hit above average BABIP, but with a .380 in that cat last year he won't hit .301 again. (Jon Collins, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.lockerroomfantasysports.com'>Fantasy Sports LR</a>, 1 day ago)
Span quietly had a fantastic season and will be leading off for the best offense again in 2015. This could lead to his first 100 run season while he combines for 25-35 HR+SB and notches a solid batting average.

A .280 AVG with 20-30 SB is what we've been expecting from Escobar for years. We finally got it last year.

(Tim Young, <a target='_blank' href='http://mlbsoup.com/'>MLB Soup</a>, 18 days ago)
Before his injury last season Wieters was a reliable offensive force in the fake game. In the previous 3 seasons he average 66 runs, 22.5 HR and 76.6 RBI.

After spending the majority of his career as a backup and bench player Pearce came out of nowhere to hit 26 HR's last year in only 102 games. If given significant playing time again (he's in line for it) he should approach 20 HR again with solid counting numbers and a handful of SB. And all of this with a reasonable .260ish average. If you're in a deep league Pearce is a great... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)

McGee is rehabbing from elbow surgery and will likely miss most or all of April. Because of this he's being severely discounted on draft day.

I love that all of the talk surrounding Baez in the preseason is his ridiculous K rate from last year and a looming demotion if he doesn't perform well for the Cubs. All of that talk has clouded the fact that Baez is only 22 and has some of the most HR power upside in MLB. Even if he only hits .220-.230 you'll happily lap it up it if he goes 25/15 with solid counting stats at 2B o...

Doolittle will miss the beginning of the season with an injury but is expected to regain his closing role upon his return because of the success he had last season and the fact that Billy Beane will likely bring in his best RP (Clippard) when the game is on the line no matter inning that occurs. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
After hitting 28 HR in '12 and 21 in '13 Wilin only hit 13 HR last season. Because of this he's nice and cheap on draft day with an ADP of 169.9.

After hitting 30 or more HR's in the previous 2 seasons Pedro only belted 18 last season in 122 games as he struggled at 3B and started the transition to 1B. Pedro still has a ton of power, but expecting more than 20-25 HR may leave you feeling unsatisfied. The counting stats should be okay, but the average may be unsightly in the .230's again.

Steamer 59/18/59/19/.247 and PECOTA 80/25/83/26/.265 absolutely love this player. PECOTA projects 85 more at bats, but they both project over 500. That's good enough for me to slide Souza up my rankings and target him in the middle rounds of drafts. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
After breaking out in his rookie season with 23 HR's Gyorko fell on his face last season as he only managed to hit 10 round-trippers last year to go along with his putrid .210 average. The 20 HR upside is still there, along with solid counting stats, as long as you can stomach a bad average and prolonged slumps. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
I expected a lot from Mauer last year and yet again he disappointed fantasy owners. Even though he's totally healthy the power was almost non existent last season. He should provide a great average and decent counting stats, but don't' expect more than 10 HR+SB or you'll also be disappointed. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
2012 is clearly the out liar in his career at this point, but Headley is still plenty useful in the fake game. As long as he keeps running a bit and adding 5-10 SB he should return 25-30 HR+SB along with good counting numbers and a decent average. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Heading into his age 27 season Ramos still has a very strong skill set, but rarely stays healthy. If he managed to stay healthy he could be a top 5 option. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Country breakfast only had 15 HR last year, but he had good counting stats and a respectable (for this group anyway) .275 average.

If Lawrie can finally stay healthy we could see his first 20+ HR season along with contributions in every other category with a decent average. Because he's never played more than 125 games I can't bring myself to put the 25 year old any higher on my list. That said he's nice and cheap and should produce when healthy. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Gennett was the strong side of a 2B platoon with Rickie Weeks last year and made the most of his AB's.

Odor was thrown into the fire last season at the tender young age of 20 and still managed to SLG .402. If given full time at bats he should reach double digit HR's and decent counting stats. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Lind quietly crushed RHP to teh tune of a .522 SLG% last year and will get all of the at bats against RHP in the strong side of a platoon this season.

Casilla will open the 2015 season as the closer for the World Champion Giants. While his K/9 will not dazzle anyone, his elite ratios and consistant success can't be overlooked. Casilla hasn't posted an ERA over 3 since 2009, and in 3 of those seasons it was below 2. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
It's not clear how much playing time Grandal will get with the Dodgers, but if he gets a real shot, he could post great numbers. The 26 year old raced through the minors easily posting .300 averages and having no trouble driving the baseball. He hit 15 HR in just 128 games last year, despite a .225 AVG. I expect to see increases in BOTH numbers, as well as Runs and RBI with the move to Los Angeles. Gra... (Tim Young, <a target='_blank' href='http://mlbsoup.com/'>MLB Soup</a>, 18 days ago)
Cabrera has had 2 subpar seasons in a row, with AVGs in the .240s, but those numbers don't really jive with the rest of his career. He still has the ability to hit 15-20 HR and steal double digit bases. (Tim Young, <a target='_blank' href='http://mlbsoup.com/'>MLB Soup</a>, 18 days ago)
Being an outspoken or flashy player doesn't count in the fake game as Phillips has seen his stock heavily decline over the past few seasons. Now 33 years old I wouldn't expect more than 20 HR+SB and decent counting stats to go with a .250-.270 average. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Cecil is currently in line to be the closer for the Blue Jays. He should provide solid ratios and K's along with a good amount of saves if he keeps the job all season. He is fairly cheap on draft day and is a good late/value target in all formats. Just be sure to keep an eye on the status of Aaron Sanchez, who has a superior skill-set, but may be in the mix for the fifth spot in the s... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Clippard has been one of the best RP in MLB over the last 6 seasons and will likely begin the year as the closer for the Oakland A's. That makes him a decently cheap target in all formats and a great target in holds leagues. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Based on stuff, I'd love to be higher on Roark but he'll need an injury or a change in role to have a fantasy impact in 2015. (Jon Collins, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.lockerroomfantasysports.com'>Fantasy Sports LR</a>, 1 day ago)
Gregorson is the boring version of Tyler Clippard. Solid ratios and a decent K/9 along with consistency and a close proximity to the closer's chair. A decent late round flier in most formats and a solid target in holds leagues. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
If healthy Tex could provide 20ish HR's and decent counting stats along with a terrible batting average. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Petit came on strong last season right after I streamed him in my 15 team super deep roster league. As you can see I'm still mad about it. I expect Petit to again get a crack at the rotation and again provide some useful starts and stat lines. Even if he is a RP most of the season he still has a good amount of value and the coveted dual SP/RP eligibility. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
With all of the hyped Cubs prospects Alcantara has seemingly fallen through the cracks. Not on my watch. The power speed combo this player brings to the table is trememdous. In only 70 games last year AA had 10 HR's and 8 SB's. If Joe Madden uses his versatility in a Zobrist like fashion he could be a nice late round lottery ticket that pays out. 2B & OF eligibility help the c...

Zunino is not a very good hitter, but he does have considerable power. Last year he hit 22 HR's but it came with an average of .199. This year he should again hit 20+ HR and hopefully the average is closer to .220. If your fake team can afford to take the average hit it will love all of the cheap power that comes with it. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Miller had an elite season last year and is an absolute terror for LHH's. Because of that he may get some opportunities to close games when there are mutliple LHH's due to hit in the 9th. Or if Girardi decides to bring Betances in for 2 innings when the game is on the line in the 7th. Even if Miller doesn't close any games he will have value this season. If something were to h...

Nathan was terrible last year and still somehow held onto the closing gig all season. He is slated to begin the season as the closer but will likely lose that job to the superior arms of Soria or Rondon in the near future. This is a player I once loved and drafted with regularity but will likely have zero shares of this season. No thank you. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Mejia will have to improve upon his 2014 statistics if he wants to hold onto the closing gig in NY when Parnell returns from injury. If he does not his run as closer will come to an end. That said he still has some value even if he doesn't close because of his solid K/9 and SP eligibility. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Once a serious HR hitter Hill only had 10 HR in 2014 despite 541 plate appearances. Despite the off year Hill still seems to have 15-20 HR potential along with 5-10 SP potential and good counting numbers.

Giles has the skill set to do what Delin Betances did last season. The problem is that seemingly everyone knows that and it's being factored into his draft day cost. I say he's worth it anyway and I don't even trust that Ruben Amaro Jr will do the right thing and trade Papelbon. Heck he should have already traded him. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Hawkins was solid last year as the closer for the Rockies, but trusting a 42 year old RP that has the worst home ballpark for pitchers in the entire league is a hurdle I'm not willing to jump over. Even if there is value to be had here, as there was last season, it is thin at best. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
The youngster flashed some pop and speed in '14 before missing time with injury. Fully healthy in '15 Owings could provide 20-25 HR+SB along with decent counting numbers. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Boxberger will likely return to a setup role despite being a much better pitcher than Balfour, but will still provide value with solid ratios and an elite K/9. If Boxberger were to ascend to the closing role for an extended period of time he could be the next Melancon and would in the conversation for top 10 RP status. All of this makes him a great target late round flier in all formats ... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Davis is coming off one of the best seasons for a RP in the history of baseball where he posted a ridiculous 1.0 ERA, a K/9 of 13.6 and didn't allow a single HR in 72 innings pitched. While I don't expect him to repeat that dominance I do expect him to be a top 30 RP even if he doesn't close a single game all season. If you play in a hold league this is exactly the type of pla...

Schoop impressed with 16 HR's in his rookie campaign and will look to improve on that total in his sophomore season. However the counting stats will be mediocre and the average may be nearly as awful as it was last season (.209).

Soria is the only set up man that I have listed above the closer in these rankings outside of the silly talented Ken Giles. Even though Giles will be handed the keys at some point I believe that Soria will force the issue in Detroit. Not only was Nathan ineffective last year, but Soria has been very productive his entire career outside of the 11 innings he pitched for Detroit last year. B...

Romo has been elite RP his entire career outside of two bad months he had at the beginning of last season. Unluckily for him, and us int eh fake game, Casilla was able to step in and close games on the way to a Championship. Even if he remains a setup man all season Romo will still have a lot of value with his elite ratios and solid K/9. If Sergio were to regain the closing gig he would l...

Broxton managed impressive numbers last year despite relying heavily on smoke and mirrors. Long story short he was really lucky and not nearly as good as the numbers suggest he was. Despite all of this he is currently in line to set up games for the Brewers. If K-Rod should succumb to injury or ineffectiveness Broxton will likely get the first shot to close. A decent hedge in deep leagues... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Qualls is the closer for the Astros heading into the season and he posted solid ratios the past 2 seasons. Despite this he is being overlooked and comes nice and cheap on draft day. Don't underestimate Qualls and his ability to hold the role longer than expected despite the talent behind him in the bullpen like Gregorson and FIelds. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Quack Attack impressed last season and could get a shot to close if Benoit were to get injured or become ineffective.

Fields is a great late round flier in deep leagues, as he is the most talented member of the Astros bullpen. While Gregorson has been consistently good and Qualls has been good of late neither of them possesses the upside of Fields. If the right dominoes were to fall and Fields were given a chance to close he would likely be a top 20 RP with top 15 upside. He's the closest thing to th...

Very similar to McGee Parnell is a flame throwing RP that is rehabbing from injury and expected to be on the DL until early May. After a healthy return Parnell should have a legit shot at regaining the closer's role from the less talented Jenrry Mejia. Being totally overlooked on draft day Parnell is a great target late in drafts. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)

Chavez came out of nowhere (he used to be a bad RP for the Pirates best known for giving up the playoff clinching HR to Braun after getting hammered at a bar in MKE the night before) to be a very useful and effective SP for the A's last season.

Loup is slated to begin the year as the set up man in Toronto, but could ascend to the closer's chair if Cecil were to succumb to injury or ineffectiveness.

Durability over the past 3 seasons. Will be the first catcher off the board. But to get Posey, you have to invest a 2nd round draft pick. It all depends on your draft strategy.

The news that Lucroy will miss some time in spring training with a hamstring injury is a little scary, as those injuries can linger. That said it's likely that he'll be healed and ready to go by opening day. He may be a bit rusty to start, but then should be a solid fake game contributor across all 5 categories.

Mesoraco exploded with 25 HR in '14 while also notching an impressive 80 RBI and a .273 average. While I expect 15-20 HR I also expect the average to drop closer to his career average of .245 and roughly 15-20 less RBI. Still a valuable fake game asset behind the dish, but not the behemoth he was last season. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
After back to back 20+ HR seasons Gattis is finally in line to get 550+ PA's and should eclipse 30 HR for the first time in his career.

Yadi missed some time with injury in '14, but it appears he's also in the midst of a gradual decline in his offensive skill set. I no longer expect a .300 average and 10-15 HR's with solid counting stats. Maybe 10-12 HR with an average in the .280's is more reasonable as Yadi heads into his age 32 season.

While Carlos was able to tie his career high with 27 HR's last season he saw his AVG dip all the way down to .231.

Big things were expected in McCann's first year in NY and although he failed to meet them he still hit 66/26/76 albeit with a .244 AVG.

Before his injury last season Wieters was a reliable offensive force in the fake game. In the previous 3 seasons he average 66 runs, 22.5 HR and 76.6 RBI.

Coming off an outstanding 2013, Goldschmidt broke his left hand which ended his season after 109 games.

For all the love Freeman still gets Votto is a very similar player.

Hosmer had another down season last year; although he did play extremely well in the postseason for the streaking Royals.

Country breakfast only had 15 HR last year, but he had good counting stats and a respectable (for this group anyway) .275 average. With his stock this low there is plenty of room for value in deep leagues that have CI and UT slots. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
I expected a lot from Mauer last year and yet again he disappointed fantasy owners. Even though he's totally healthy the power was almost non existent last season. He should provide a great average and decent counting stats, but don't' expect more than 10 HR+SB or you'll also be disappointed. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
After hitting 30 or more HR's in the previous 2 seasons Pedro only belted 18 last season in 122 games as he struggled at 3B and started the transition to 1B. Pedro still has a ton of power, but expecting more than 20-25 HR may leave you feeling unsatisfied. The counting stats should be okay, but the average may be unsightly in the .230's again.

It's not clear how much playing time Grandal will get with the Dodgers, but if he gets a real shot, he could post great numbers. The 26 year old raced through the minors easily posting .300 averages and having no trouble driving the baseball. He hit 15 HR in just 128 games last year, despite a .225 AVG. I expect to see increases in BOTH numbers, as well as Runs and RBI with the move to Los Angeles. Gra... (Tim Young, <a target='_blank' href='http://mlbsoup.com/'>MLB Soup</a>, 18 days ago)

2012 is clearly the out liar in his career at this point, but Headley is still plenty useful in the fake game.

Only player (along with Miguel Cabrera) to hit .300+ over the past 6 seasons. He averaged 28 HRs over the past 5 seasons with NYY, but a move to SEA cost him considerable HRs and RBIs. Age 32. GB rate all time high at 52.6%. The glory days are over. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Atluve is an excellent source of stolen bases and batting average, which he both lead in the AL last season, but I can find comprable stats later on the draft. I see his AVG closer to .300 than .340. No way he has another .360 BABIP. Low HR & RBI. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Led MLB in runs with 111 as he was moved from 8th to 2nd in the order. Skeptical about his SBs with a combined 1 SB in the previous 2 seasons. Has both 2B and 3B eligibility. Not 1st round worthy.

Dozier had shown pop in '13, but broke out in a big way last season to the tune of 21 HR's, 23 SB's and 112 runs scored. Those numbers may regress a bit, but you'll be able to stomach the poor average (expect .240-.250) if he makes another push at 20/20 and scores 90 runs atop a Twins lineup that is better than you think. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Dee Gordon has little plate discipline with a BB/K ratio of 31/107. He's a one trick pony with 64 stolen bases. I have projected his average to be closer to .250 than .290. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
After a disappointing season Kipnis is due to bounce back and deliver the power/speed combo we all expected last year. As long as you don't expect too much you'll be more than happy with 35-40 SB+HR and decent counting stats as he heads into his age 27 season. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
No longer the MVP he once was Pedroia is now fairly similar to Betts. Similar pop with less speed combined with a good average and a healthy run total. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
After flashing his pop in the postseason it will be interesting to see if the power surge continues. The HR upside is there, along with the speed, but also some drag on the batting average. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Walker doesn't do any one thing great, but he does everything well, and there's value in that. While I don't expect him to lead the league in HR's at the position again I do expect him to contribute across the board as a top 12 2B. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Last year Mookie was on several of my fake teams down the stretch as he flashed a solid combination of power and speed to go along with a healthy batting average and good amount of runs scored. This year he'll be in Boston's OF but lucky for us he keeps his 2B positional flexibility. He won't be winning a batting title just yet, but a healthy combo of 35-40 SB+HR along with a ...

Whiloe Kendrick has never blossomed into the batting title champ many thought he would be he has quietly had a very good career and is a quality asset in the fake game at 2B.

Murphy saw his SB's drop from his career high in '13 last season, but still put up decent numbers across all five categories. Look for him to continue that this season. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Harrison had a strong 2014 season, no doubt, but he hit 100 points above his 2013 BABIP, rarely walks, and saw an increase in K% last year. His .315 average is going to be tough to sustain, though, the counting stats should be fine with a return to every day at bats at 3B. (Jon Collins, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.lockerroomfantasysports.com'>Fantasy Sports LR</a>, 1 day ago)
Zobrist contributes across the board and provides sneaky production everywhere. And the multiple position eligibility is obviously nice as well.

Time and injuries have slowed the once mighty Utley, but he still has plenty of value in the fake game. Expect Walker-Lite numbers with a little more speed. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
I love that all of the talk surrounding Baez in the preseason is his ridiculous K rate from last year and a looming demotion if he doesn't perform well for the Cubs. All of that talk has clouded the fact that Baez is only 22 and has some of the most HR power upside in MLB. Even if he only hits .220-.230 you'll happily lap it up it if he goes 25/15 with solid counting stats at 2B o...

After breaking out in his rookie season with 23 HR's Gyorko fell on his face last season as he only managed to hit 10 round-trippers last year to go along with his putrid .210 average. The 20 HR upside is still there, along with solid counting stats, as long as you can stomach a bad average and prolonged slumps. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
If Lawrie can finally stay healthy we could see his first 20+ HR season along with contributions in every other category with a decent average. Because he's never played more than 125 games I can't bring myself to put the 25 year old any higher on my list. That said he's nice and cheap and should produce when healthy.

Odor was thrown into the fire last season at the tender young age of 20 and still managed to SLG .402. If given full time at bats he should reach double digit HR's and decent counting stats. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Gennett was the strong side of a 2B platoon with Rickie Weeks last year and made the most of his AB's.

Cabrera has had 2 subpar seasons in a row, with AVGs in the .240s, but those numbers don't really jive with the rest of his career. He still has the ability to hit 15-20 HR and steal double digit bases. (Tim Young, <a target='_blank' href='http://mlbsoup.com/'>MLB Soup</a>, 18 days ago)
Being an outspoken or flashy player doesn't count in the fake game as Phillips has seen his stock heavily decline over the past few seasons.

With all of the hyped Cubs prospects Alcantara has seemingly fallen through the cracks. Not on my watch. The power speed combo this player brings to the table is trememdous.

The youngster flashed some pop and speed in '14 before missing time with injury. Fully healthy in '15 Owings could provide 20-25 HR+SB along with decent counting numbers. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Schoop impressed with 16 HR's in his rookie campaign and will look to improve on that total in his sophomore season.

Hitting 21 home runs in only 91 games last season is impressive. The never ending problem with Tulo is his health. And each year people say that this is his year and it never happends.

In 5 out of the last 6 seasons, Ramirez had less than 500 AB. Moving to Boston and having the ability to DH as times will help, but let him be someone else's problem. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Only player to go 20/20 for the last 3 seasons. You can't ignore the 20+ HRs for the 3rd straight year. 154+ games 4 out of the last 5 seasons. Look for a rebound in BA closer to .280. In a contract year. Draft him over Tulo as the first SS off the board. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)

Alexei is the classic 15/15 shortstop. He's got the potential to raise both of those totals over 20, but that's unlikely. Group those totals with a .270-.280 AVG, solid RBI/Run totals, and basically zero injury history, and Alexei is the type of player that won't hurt you anywhere, while giving you solid production. (Tim Young, <a target='_blank' href='http://mlbsoup.com/'>MLB Soup</a>, 18 days ago)
For all the hype Castro gets every season we haven't seen him run much over the past 2 seasons. Even if he takes a step forward in the power department he won't be an elite option if he's not running at all. Not unless he also takes a big step forward in the batting average department. Because his growth is essentially built into his ADP it's unlikely I'll draft him o... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
It's amazing to think that Andrus is only 26 years old. That means that, even though he's coming off of 2 rough years, we shouldn't be expecting his best years to be behind him. That said, he only appears to be good for a bunch of stolen bases at this point. Potential is there, but if you want to take that risk, you better have a backup plan. (Tim Young, <a target='_blank' href='http://mlbsoup.com/'>MLB Soup</a>, 18 days ago)
Rollins had a monster season in '14 hitting 17 HR's and stealing 28 bags while notching useful counting numbers. Although he's entering his age 36 season he's in a much better lineup and should again push 30-35 HR+SB while accruing better counting numbers. Just be sure you and your fake team can stomach his average, as it will likely be in the .230-.250 range.

Segura is coming off of a miserable sophomore/junior slump filled with a brutal OBP and personal tragedy. The good news is that he put together a respectable second half of 2014, mostly due to an impressive September. I'd expect him to drive the ball better this year, and a higher OBP will come with a return of his massive SB numbers. (Tim Young, <a target='_blank' href='http://mlbsoup.com/'>MLB Soup</a>, 18 days ago)
A .280 AVG with 20-30 SB is what we've been expecting from Escobar for years. We finally got it last year.

Arenado had a fantastic sophomore season despite only playing in 111 games due to injury. Now fully healthy he should be in line for another solid year, but don't have too high of expectations. That said even if he takes a step backwards he will be cushioned by the thin air in Colorado for half of his games. It's nice when there's some risk accompanied by built in equity.

Seager has improved his AVG, OBP & SLG in all four of his MLB seasons. I expect that trend to continue and for Seager to again contribute in all 5 categories.

Davis took a huge step backwards last year, but if you read my ADP article that grenade didn't go off in your hand.

Now 32 years old. Encarnacion has started the decline in production, but he is the only player in the past 3 years to hit 30 home runs . The addition of Josh Donaldson is a plus.

I expect another 20-25 HR this year along with a handful of SB's and good counting stats to go along with an AVG around .250. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
After hitting 29 HR in '13 Carter exploded for 37 HR last season. In '15 he remains in his physical prime and could threaten 40 if healthy. Although the average will likely be in the .220's the monstrous HR totals and solid counting stats can't be ignored. If Carter has OF and/or 1B eligibility that only strengthens his versatility and value. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Injuries hurt his final numbers, but Choo needs a big bounceback in 2015 to be useful. There are more intriguing players at this stage of the draft, particularly if he isn't running. (Jon Collins, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.lockerroomfantasysports.com'>Fantasy Sports LR</a>, 1 day ago)
Lind quietly crushed RHP to teh tune of a .522 SLG% last year and will get all of the at bats against RHP in the strong side of a platoon this season. Although he's not a full time player he should stil be able to notch 15-20 HR and a decent average providing value in the deepest of leagues. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Country breakfast only had 15 HR last year, but he had good counting stats and a respectable (for this group anyway) .275 average. With his stock this low there is plenty of room for value in deep leagues that have CI and UT slots.

213/213
May move from 2nd to 3rd in the batting order, which may reduce overall stolen bases. A no-brainer 1st oveall pick in 2015 drafts. Some chinks in the armor: His decrease in SBs: 49 --> 33 --> 16. Batting eye (walks divided by strikeouts): .48 --> .80 --> .45. Only 23 years old and plenty of room to grow and mature. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Contributes to all 5 hitting categories. 4 consecutive years with 20+ HR and 3 consecutive years with .300+ BA. Age 28. Only 21 SB attempts last season, but August rib injury may explain the drop. Not betting on a repeat in 2015, especially where he is being drafted at either pick 2 or 3. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Rebounded from an injury risk and played 145 games last season. Led the NL in HR, SLG, TB, intentional walks. Spike in SB with 13 out of 14 attempts. Look for some AVG and SB regression but draft with confidence. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Two straight seasons with a .284 BA. Peaking at age 29. He is like Andrew McCutchen, but with more SBs and can be drafted 4-8 picks later. Hit .255 after all star break and is a .260 career hitter, but excelled in September. Top 10 player past 2 years. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
First full injury-free season in 3 years. AVG increase attributed to his willingess to beat the shift and hit to right field. Age 34. Still a power-producing player, but not 1st round worthy with age and injury concerns. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Model of consistency at age 29, you can pencil in Jones for close to 30 HRs, 100 RBIs, 10 SB, a .280 BA, and most importantly, 160 games played. Baltimore finished last in SBs with 44, so let's hope Showalter runs more this season. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Better place discipline with increased walks and decreased strikeouts. Poor baserunning skills led to almost a 50% CS rate. More of an OF2 than an OF1. Take a chance in round 4, but let him be on someone's team in round 3. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Ellsbury has a 90% SB success rate over the past 3 seasons. Finished September with hamstring injury. He is pretty much a 10 HR and 40 SB player. I can get that out of other players later on in the draft. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Fantasy baseball league managers must determine fact vs. fluke through statistics. Are the HR and SB real? I'm betting fluke. Only 5 HRs after all star break and no change in his fly ball rate. BABIP and HR/FB rate above career average. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
A lingering thumb injury kept Braun's stats down all season, but still respectable. He had successful off season thumb surgery, but I don't feel all giddy with an early 3rd round pick on Braun. His past steriod usage can't be ignored. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Upton already hit in a pitcher-friendly park in Atlanta, and now moves to the toughest hitting park in the NL in SD. Age 27. Great in monthly fantasy leagues, especially in April. Steady player, but never elite. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Injuries have prevented Harper from becoming an elite fantasy player. Harper comes with many question marks. Will he stay healthy? Contact skill increase? Stolen bases? High risk/reward. Age 22. Don't reach, but draft him on the cheap in round 3 or 4. This is the year. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Entering his prime at age 26, Dickerson is on the brink of fantasy stardom. Look for a significant increase in playing time and 436 at bats from last season. Pick to click! (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Age 29, but has missed playing time 5 consecutive seasons. The drop in SBs is a major red flag. Knee surgery in August. Twenty HRs and 10 SBs are now the new ceiling. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Quad injury is now healed, I am projecting the potential for a 30 HR and 15 SB season. You just have to live with a batting average around .230. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Marte is an interesting study. His BABIP is .363, but strikes out about 25% of the time. Marte's value has a lot to where he hits in the batting order and it is all over the place. He's a 10 HR 30 SB and .285 hitter tops. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Kemp had his first 500+ AB year in 3 seasons. Great 2nd half of the seaason after ankle issues in the first half. Traded to San Diego in December. The move from LA to SD's PETCO may be slightly neutral. Age 30. OF2 (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
The 6 HRs were a bonus, but don't expect that in 2015. The concern here is the 23 CS as Hamilton is going to have to be more successful on the base paths this season. Being drafted too early. Pass on round 4. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Now in Detroit Cespedes should pile up the RBI's with a HR total in the low twenties, a decent amount of runs scored and an average that shouldn't hurt or help you. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Age 35. Led MLB in HRs with 40. Moves from Baltimore to Seattle this season, so look for a serious drop in HRs and RBIs. See Robinason Cano's move to Seattle last season as a reference.

It's amazing how consistent Matt Holliday has been into his 30s. His AVG dipped below .295 for the first time in a decade, but his other numbers remained strong. The man hasn't aged yet, so why expect it now? 2015 might actually be better than 2014 for Holliday. (Tim Young, <a target='_blank' href='http://mlbsoup.com/'>MLB Soup</a>, 18 days ago)
It's hard to believe that while he's going into his 6th season as a pro Heyward is still just 25 years old.

(Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Yelich should be in for 30-35 HR+SB along with a solid average, a healthy amount of runs scored and a decent RBI total. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
I love Alex Gordon as a player but have slid him back roughly 10 spots in the rankings because of concern over his recovery from wrist surgery. Even though he's projected to be ready by opening day the injury may sap some of his power and could also affect his average. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
It appears that the 20 HR power is legit. Expect roughly 30 HR+SB and a healthy amount of runs with a solid average and you have yourself a very useful player in the fake game. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
After several solid seasons Bruce completely fell off last year and he still managed 18 HR. If he bounces back at all his floor would resemble something like .240/60/20/70/7 while he's playing half of his games in that bandbox in Cincinnati. And to be fair he's still just 27 years old, so there is still plenty of upside here. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Blackmon's a 20/20 player with a .285 - .290 AVG. Hard to go wrong with that. Only thing holding Blackmon back would be the Rockies lineup, but with a healthy Tulo, CarGo, and Arenado, there should be plenty of guys to push Blackmon across the plate. (Tim Young, <a target='_blank' href='http://mlbsoup.com/'>MLB Soup</a>, 18 days ago)
Ozuna quietly had a very solid season in '14 slashing 72/23/85/3/.269 and should have a good shot of replicating those numbers in '15 in what is a better Marlins lineup than you think (and much improved over last year's lineup).

Last year Mookie was on several of my fake teams down the stretch as he flashed a solid combination of power and speed to go along with a healthy batting average and good amount of runs scored. This year he'll be in Boston's OF but lucky for us he keeps his 2B positional flexibility. He won't be winning a batting title just yet, but a healthy combo of 35-40 SB+HR along with a ...

I don't expect another 17 HR season, but 35 or so HR+SB and a healthy amount of runs scored should in the cards for the speedy Yankee. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Trumbo only played 88 games in his first season with Arizona yet he was still able to notch 14 HR's. As long as he's healthy he should smash 25-30 HR's along with very good counting stats along with a fairly terrible average (.240-.250) (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)

I had Rios on several teams last year and man was he underwhelming. Instead of walking away I'm buying in again, this time at a highly reduced price. Even if the power is gone Alex should have the green light in KC and provide plenty of fake game value. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Harrison had a strong 2014 season, no doubt, but he hit 100 points above his 2013 BABIP, rarely walks, and saw an increase in K% last year. His .315 average is going to be tough to sustain, though, the counting stats should be fine with a return to every day at bats at 3B. (Jon Collins, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.lockerroomfantasysports.com'>Fantasy Sports LR</a>, 1 day ago)
Injuries hurt his final numbers, but Choo needs a big bounceback in 2015 to be useful. There are more intriguing players at this stage of the draft, particularly if he isn't running. (Jon Collins, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.lockerroomfantasysports.com'>Fantasy Sports LR</a>, 1 day ago)
After back to back 25+ HR seasons Moss has joined the Indians and could hit clean up in a fairly balanced lineup. While the average could be .240-.250 he could still hit 20-25 HR's and provide decent counting numbers.

After hitting 29 HR in '13 Carter exploded for 37 HR last season. In '15 he remains in his physical prime and could threaten 40 if healthy.

Myers hasn't had a full season, strikes out in 1/4 of his ABs and moves to a power sapping park. Fade the name brand. (Jon Collins, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.lockerroomfantasysports.com'>Fantasy Sports LR</a>, 1 day ago)
Zobrist contributes across the board and provides sneaky production everywhere. And the multiple position eligibility is obviously nice as well. He should see lots of playing time and production in Oakland. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Can will continue to run and his speed leaves him a good candidate to hit above average BABIP, but with a .380 in that cat last year he won't hit .301 again. (Jon Collins, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.lockerroomfantasysports.com'>Fantasy Sports LR</a>, 1 day ago)
Span quietly had a fantastic season and will be leading off for the best offense again in 2015. This could lead to his first 100 run season while he combines for 25-35 HR+SB and notches a solid batting average. Update: core surgery on March 9th is expected to force Span to miss the first month of the seasons sliding him several spots down this list. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
After spending the majority of his career as a backup and bench player Pearce came out of nowhere to hit 26 HR's last year in only 102 games. If given significant playing time again (he's in line for it) he should approach 20 HR again with solid counting numbers and a handful of SB. And all of this with a reasonable .260ish average. If you're in a deep league Pearce is a great... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Steamer 59/18/59/19/.247 and PECOTA 80/25/83/26/.265 absolutely love this player. PECOTA projects 85 more at bats, but they both project over 500. That's good enough for me to slide Souza up my rankings and target him in the middle rounds of drafts. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
With all of the hyped Cubs prospects Alcantara has seemingly fallen through the cracks. Not on my watch. The power speed combo this player brings to the table is trememdous. In only 70 games last year AA had 10 HR's and 8 SB's. If Joe Madden uses his versatility in a Zobrist like fashion he could be a nice late round lottery ticket that pays out. 2B & OF eligibility help the c...

SP | ECR

254/254
Led MLB in ERA for 4th consecutive season. My personal philosophy is not to take a pitcher in the early rounds, let alone in round 1. I've projected some regression for 2015. At his peak at age 27. Lot's of good SPs to draft this year. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
I don't project Hernandez to produce the same stats from 2014 and see his ERA and WHIP closer to 3.00 and 1.10, so expect some regression. Great SP, but not first round worthy at age 29. Fastball dropped to 92.4 MPH. Won't repeat the .260 BABIP. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Move from the AL to the NL will help with ERA and WHIP, but will hurt W and run support. Led the AL in Ks with 252 and 3rd in Ws with 18. K's should increase. Age 30. Low SP1 or High SP2 works here. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Outstanding post season led to a world series MVP. He's now on everyone's radar and will be drafted earlier than his ADP. 270 IP including playoffs. Great SP, but remember that pitching is deep this season. Wait on SP and you will be rewarded.

Updaetd 3/8/15: Chris Sale said Saturday that his injured right foot is progressing on schedule and he hopes not to miss any regular season action. An early season forearm strain has owners worried, but he recovered and led the AL in dominace with 10.76 (K/9), 2nd in ERA (2.17), and 2nd in WHIP (0.97). He's had forearm issues 3 years in a row, so red flags abound. Top e... (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
2014 xFIP (Expected Fielder Independent Pitching) was 2.56, well below his actual ERA of 3.14. Tied for the NL lead in K's with 242. Removed from Tommy John surgery and pitched 215 IP last season. Draft with confidence. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
2012 AL Cy Young Award winner, returned to form in 2014 as he was traded from TB to DET last summer. 271 Ks in 248 1/3 IP. Strikeout machine and on a winning team. Money. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
2014 AL CY Young award winner. A 2.57xFIP was close to his actual 2.44 ERA. Some regression is expected, but still an SP1. He has only done this once, and will go in the 3rd round. Age 29.

Updated on 3/8/2015: Two weeks ago, he received a lubricating injection in his right elbow. Greinke threw off a mound to hitters on 3/6 and said he has not had any problems with his arm since receiving treatment. Age 32. Overshadowed by Clayton Kershaw. A solid SP pick. 2.72 xFIP. Good for 15 wins and 200+ Ks. Cautiously optimistic. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Led the NL in IP with 243.2 and Ks with 242. Incredible BABIP at .238. ERA less than 3.00 for 4 consecutive years. One of the best SP1's at a bargain price. Buy. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Near-lock for close to 200 Ks, 3.00 ERA, but landing outside top 70 SPs in run support past 2 seasons has crushed Wins (trade, please) (Brandon Funston, <a target='_blank' href='http://sports.yahoo.com/fantasy'>Yahoo! Sports</a>, 4 days ago)
Sharp boost in K rate (8.20) in '14 has boosted this control artist to the back end of the ace crop (Brandon Funston, <a target='_blank' href='http://sports.yahoo.com/fantasy'>Yahoo! Sports</a>, 4 days ago)
Age 31. Lester moves from the AL (Boston and Oakland) to the NL (Chicago Cubs). I am projecting a 15+ win, 200+ K season. A nice SP to target in rounds 5 or 6 after the top SPs are off the board. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Age 34. He had cartilage removed at the end of the 2014 season. Elbow soreness all season. I'm taking the under of 180 IP this season. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Harvey's back after missing the entirety of the 2014 season recovering from Tommy John. We're not really sure what to expect, but Harvey had quite possibly the game's best slider before getting hurt, and would have been a Cy Young contender if Clayton Kershaw went into carpentry instead of baseball. (Tim Young, <a target='_blank' href='http://mlbsoup.com/'>MLB Soup</a>, 18 days ago)
Prototypical SP2 with a very stable floor. While his K/9 has been in the mid 7's since he came to MLB he has been solidly reliable in ERA & WHIP and may be looking at a bump in wins because of the improved roster around him. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Shields has risen 3 spots in my rankings since he was traded to SD where he could see a slight uptick in his K/9 and a slight down tick in ERA & WHIP. His durability has helped him log more than 200 innings for 8 consecutive years and because of this he has a rather high floor. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Cobb is a breakout candidate because he has never thrown more than 160 innings, but has consistently had an ERA in the high 2's or low 3's along with a K/9 > 8 and a Whip around 1.1. If Cobb is able to log >200 innings he should easily be a top 20 SP. Update: Now dealing with forearm tendinitis Cobb will miss opening day and could obviously miss more time if the injury doesn...

Gray got a bit more walk-happy than we would have liked last season, but he also threw more innings than he's ever thrown before, so excellence isn't neccesarily to be expected. He plays in a forgiving ballpark that can help make up for his walks, and he's only 25 years old. Gray should be great one day, and his time is now. (Tim Young, <a target='_blank' href='http://mlbsoup.com/'>MLB Soup</a>, 18 days ago)
Wood was terrific last season and carries over his SP & RP eligibility giving him a little bump in value in some formats. While he may not pile up the wins on the hapless Braves he should positively contribute in every other category. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Tyson Ross threw 41% sliders last year and had forearm soreness to end the season. Because of this I've moved him down roughly ten spots in my rankings and am generally staying away from him this season. Just too much risk in what is a very deep position.

Richards was on his way to a breakout season before he injured his knee in August. With an expected return in mid April he is going at a discount in drafts and will likely only miss a couple of starts. Because this is a knee injury I am not as concerned as I would be had it been arm related. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Although Lynn's K/9 dropped to 8 last year (down from 8.8 in '13 and 9.2 in '12) his ERA & WHIP also dropped; making it much more manageable for his fake game owners. He is as reliable as an SP3 can be and he pitches for a winning team. Draft away. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Although Bailey has had some setbacks he is still in line to be ready for the start of the season. After having a terrible year he should be nice and cheap on draft day while still having top 25 upside and a decent floor in regards to K's and ratios. If he remains healthy he will likely be a bargain. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Petit came on strong last season right after I streamed him in my 15 team super deep roster league. As you can see I'm still mad about it. I expect Petit to again get a crack at the rotation and again provide some useful starts and stat lines. Even if he is a RP most of the season he still has a good amount of value and the coveted dual SP/RP eligibility.

Based on stuff, I'd love to be higher on Roark but he'll need an injury or a change in role to have a fantasy impact in 2015. (Jon Collins, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.lockerroomfantasysports.com'>Fantasy Sports LR</a>, 1 day ago)
Mejia will have to improve upon his 2014 statistics if he wants to hold onto the closing gig in NY when Parnell returns from injury. If he does not his run as closer will come to an end. That said he still has some value even if he doesn't close because of his solid K/9 and SP eligibility.

Chavez came out of nowhere (he used to be a bad RP for the Pirates best known for giving up the playoff clinching HR to Braun after getting hammered at a bar in MKE the night before) to be a very useful and effective SP for the A's last season.

Should be the first or second closer off the board this season. The Braves should be in some close games this year, so don't shy away from him as the overall wins for the Braves should decrease. (Jeff Boggis, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.fantasyfootballempire.com/ '>Fantasy Football Empire</a>, 1 day ago)
Converted 46 of 48 save opportunities. WHIP was just .91. Electric stuff. (Marc Caviglia, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.brunoboys.net/'>Bruno Boys</a>, 1 day ago)
96 strikeouts in 64.1 innings with the Yankees. Lefties hit just .159 in '14. (Marc Caviglia, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.brunoboys.net/'>Bruno Boys</a>, 1 day ago)
Betances absolutely broke out in 2014 and I was along for the ride in several leagues. Maybe I'm a tad biased because of it, but I expect more of the same in 2015. While Delin could lose some save chances to tough LHH because the Yankees also have Miller in their bullpen I expect Joe Girardi to again use Betances for more than one inning on several occasions. This helped him reach 84 ... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Rosenthal still had an effective season in '14, but he saw his walks per nine more than double and his K/9 drop nearly 2 K's per 9 innings pitched. It led to a bloated WHIP of 1.41 and the highest ERA of his professional career (3.2). Despite all of that he is still just 24 years old and firmly entrenched as the closer for the Cardinals who are seemingly always in contention (and ... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Allen has been a very good RP since he debuted in 2012. He shined last season when handed the closing role. he even took a step forward in hits allowed per 9 and K/9 and could be on his way to elite status with another step forward this season. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Jansen just had foot surgery and will be sidelined until mid April at the earliest and mid May at the latest. Even though he will miss time I'm not worried about the injury as it's not related to his arm in any way. That said he will miss some time so he has been slightly downgraded. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Uehara admits to injury issues late in 2014; and hasn't gotten any younger... (Jon Collins, <a target='_blank' href='http://www.lockerroomfantasysports.com'>Fantasy Sports LR</a>, 1 day ago)
Street doesn't have the ridiculous K/9 that most of these other RP's do, but he consistently has solid ratios and he converts a high percentage of saves. Over the last 3 seasons he has never blown more than 2 saves. That's valuable in the fake game and shouldn't be overlooked. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Benoit goes under the radar a bit because he was a set up man for a long time, but he has been tremendously productive in 4 of the last 5 seasons. Now the clear closer in San Diego he should be looking at a ton of save opportunities while playing half of his games in the best pitcher's park in the league. Don't underestimate the value Benoit brings to the table in 2015. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
If Papelbon is traded it will likely be to a team with an injured or ineffective closer so he'll likely retain his closer status. If he were a setup man he would still retain some value, but he would likely drop 10-12 spots on this list. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Wood was terrific last season and carries over his SP & RP eligibility giving him a little bump in value in some formats. While he may not pile up the wins on the hapless Braves he should positively contribute in every other category. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
McGee is rehabbing from elbow surgery and will likely miss most or all of April. Because of this he's being severely discounted on draft day. While there are obvious red flags here the skill-set is an elite one. Because he's going so late and or cheaply in drafts there isn't much risk and a ton of reward. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
K-Rod has resigned with the Brewers and will step back into their closer gig to begin the 2015 season. Although he struggled down the stretch last fall he has now had multiple effective seasons closing for the Brewers. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Doolittle will miss the beginning of the season with an injury but is expected to regain his closing role upon his return because of the success he had last season and the fact that Billy Beane will likely bring in his best RP (Clippard) when the game is on the line no matter inning that occurs. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Casilla will open the 2015 season as the closer for the World Champion Giants. While his K/9 will not dazzle anyone, his elite ratios and consistant success can't be overlooked. Casilla hasn't posted an ERA over 3 since 2009, and in 3 of those seasons it was below 2. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Gregorson is the boring version of Tyler Clippard. Solid ratios and a decent K/9 along with consistency and a close proximity to the closer's chair. A decent late round flier in most formats and a solid target in holds leagues. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Cecil is currently in line to be the closer for the Blue Jays. He should provide solid ratios and K's along with a good amount of saves if he keeps the job all season. He is fairly cheap on draft day and is a good late/value target in all formats. Just be sure to keep an eye on the status of Aaron Sanchez, who has a superior skill-set, but may be in the mix for the fifth spot in the s... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Clippard has been one of the best RP in MLB over the last 6 seasons and will likely begin the year as the closer for the Oakland A's. That makes him a decently cheap target in all formats and a great target in holds leagues. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Miller had an elite season last year and is an absolute terror for LHH's. Because of that he may get some opportunities to close games when there are mutliple LHH's due to hit in the 9th. Or if Girardi decides to bring Betances in for 2 innings when the game is on the line in the 7th. Even if Miller doesn't close any games he will have value this season. If something were to h... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Mejia will have to improve upon his 2014 statistics if he wants to hold onto the closing gig in NY when Parnell returns from injury. If he does not his run as closer will come to an end. That said he still has some value even if he doesn't close because of his solid K/9 and SP eligibility. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Nathan was terrible last year and still somehow held onto the closing gig all season. He is slated to begin the season as the closer but will likely lose that job to the superior arms of Soria or Rondon in the near future. This is a player I once loved and drafted with regularity but will likely have zero shares of this season. No thank you. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Giles has the skill set to do what Delin Betances did last season. The problem is that seemingly everyone knows that and it's being factored into his draft day cost. I say he's worth it anyway and I don't even trust that Ruben Amaro Jr will do the right thing and trade Papelbon. Heck he should have already traded him. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Davis is coming off one of the best seasons for a RP in the history of baseball where he posted a ridiculous 1.0 ERA, a K/9 of 13.6 and didn't allow a single HR in 72 innings pitched. While I don't expect him to repeat that dominance I do expect him to be a top 30 RP even if he doesn't close a single game all season. If you play in a hold league this is exactly the type of pla... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Boxberger will likely return to a setup role despite being a much better pitcher than Balfour, but will still provide value with solid ratios and an elite K/9. If Boxberger were to ascend to the closing role for an extended period of time he could be the next Melancon and would in the conversation for top 10 RP status. All of this makes him a great target late round flier in all formats ... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Petit came on strong last season right after I streamed him in my 15 team super deep roster league. As you can see I'm still mad about it. I expect Petit to again get a crack at the rotation and again provide some useful starts and stat lines. Even if he is a RP most of the season he still has a good amount of value and the coveted dual SP/RP eligibility. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Hawkins was solid last year as the closer for the Rockies, but trusting a 42 year old RP that has the worst home ballpark for pitchers in the entire league is a hurdle I'm not willing to jump over. Even if there is value to be had here, as there was last season, it is thin at best. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Romo has been elite RP his entire career outside of two bad months he had at the beginning of last season. Unluckily for him, and us int eh fake game, Casilla was able to step in and close games on the way to a Championship. Even if he remains a setup man all season Romo will still have a lot of value with his elite ratios and solid K/9. If Sergio were to regain the closing gig he would l... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Soria is the only set up man that I have listed above the closer in these rankings outside of the silly talented Ken Giles. Even though Giles will be handed the keys at some point I believe that Soria will force the issue in Detroit. Not only was Nathan ineffective last year, but Soria has been very productive his entire career outside of the 11 innings he pitched for Detroit last year. B... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Very similar to McGee Parnell is a flame throwing RP that is rehabbing from injury and expected to be on the DL until early May. After a healthy return Parnell should have a legit shot at regaining the closer's role from the less talented Jenrry Mejia. Being totally overlooked on draft day Parnell is a great target late in drafts. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Broxton managed impressive numbers last year despite relying heavily on smoke and mirrors. Long story short he was really lucky and not nearly as good as the numbers suggest he was. Despite all of this he is currently in line to set up games for the Brewers. If K-Rod should succumb to injury or ineffectiveness Broxton will likely get the first shot to close. A decent hedge in deep leagues... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Qualls is the closer for the Astros heading into the season and he posted solid ratios the past 2 seasons. Despite this he is being overlooked and comes nice and cheap on draft day. Don't underestimate Qualls and his ability to hold the role longer than expected despite the talent behind him in the bullpen like Gregorson and FIelds. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Quack Attack impressed last season and could get a shot to close if Benoit were to get injured or become ineffective. Because Benoit had arm injuries as recently as last season QA is a solid late round flier in all formats and a good target in holds leagues. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Still without a job Soriano was a dominant force for several years before becoming ineffective in Washington last season. While there is still a chance he could net some saves this season that window appears to be rapidly shrinking. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Consistently a top 50 RP for the last few seasons. Great for deep leagues of all formats and a decent target for holds leagues. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Chavez came out of nowhere (he used to be a bad RP for the Pirates best known for giving up the playoff clinching HR to Braun after getting hammered at a bar in MKE the night before) to be a very useful and effective SP for the A's last season. While he will have to earn his spot in the rotation he should be looking at a possible inning increase that could bump him into SP3 status wit... (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Because it's the Oakland A's and you never know. Cook has a solid skill set and will be a good option in holds leagues. If injuries and opportunity were to arise Cook would be a top 15-20 RP if given the chance to close games. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Loup is slated to begin the year as the set up man in Toronto, but could ascend to the closer's chair if Cecil were to succumb to injury or ineffectiveness. Loup could even see some save chances if he lined up well against the opposition in the 9th inning because he is left-handed. (Justin Klein, <a target='_blank' href='http://thefakebaseball.com/'>The Fake Baseball</a>, 4 days ago)
Fields is a great late round flier in deep leagues, as he is the most talented member of the Astros bullpen. While Gregorson has been consistently good and Qualls has been good of late neither of them possesses the upside of Fields. If the right dominoes were to fall and Fields were given a chance to close he would likely be a top 20 RP with top 15 upside. He's the closest thing to th...
