Dynasty Baseball

In the age of launch angles, lowered hands, and exit velocity, sometimes all it takes is some muscle to emerge offensively. Whit Merrifield started his MLB career via the 2010 Amateur Draft. He was taken in the 9th round with very little fanfare. You hear about ‘level-per-year’ players, but Whit

Randall Delgado began the year as a long man for the Diamondbacks.  He wasn’t in the conversation for saves or holds.  He last started a game in 2015…and that also happened to be his only start of that year. Fantasy relevance did not seem likely.  Fast forward to the present and

Daniel Johnson may be the most unnoticed breakout player of 2017. Assigned to Low-A this season, Johnson has used his immense physical tools to post a .305/.357/.567 line. Those numbers absolutely destroy the meager .265/.312/.347 he squeaked out last season. Many outlets that analyzed enough prospects to include Johnson agree

The watch list is my favorite feature of dynasty baseball leagues. I prefer sites with virtually unlimited watch list sizes, which allow fools like to me to place any remotely interesting player on watch. My thought process is that I can review player progression at some imaginary point in the future when

Okay, that’s minuscule compared to a full starters workload, but at this stage the innings total is meaningless. His workload was tightly managed and understandably so,

While taking a trip to a minor league baseball game may not sound like the most riveting experience ever, it’s an experience I highly recommend. Not only are you able see get far closer to players than at most major league games, but, oftentimes, you’ll also have the ability to personally

Back-of-the-rotation starters who have always been back-of-the-rotation starters don’t often have the look of exciting fantasy sleepers, especially ones who have no prospect pedigree to speak of and a lack of big league success. Despite this, Matt Andriese may be a special case, carrying hidden upside that most fantasy owners

In fantasy baseball, we’re always looking for the market inefficiencies; the overlooked players who could provide value from an unexpected source. One of the many places where we can find this type of player is, surprisingly, on the big league bench. Yes, these part-time players who are blocked from receiving the lion’s share

Before you know it, first-year player drafts will be here. Although most normal dynasty leagues (if there is such a thing) will draft closer to Opening Day, us rabid dynasty baseball fans will be itching to draft as soon as the calendar flips to the new year. With that in mind,
