SoCalledFantasyExperts.com breaks down 5 rookie outfielders to watch in 2015. Will they all make big contributions to their respective teams this season?
15 players from last year’s list are no longer eligible for this season’s Top 25 Under 25. Gone are the likes of Giancarlo Stanton, Madison Bumgarner, George Springer and Anthony Rizzo. In their place you’ll find Gregory Polanco, Mookie Betts, and Yordano Ventura. While it may appear to be a significant drop-off from last season, I’m certain that many of these players will break out in a big way in 2015.
As the fantasy playoffs have whittled down the competition into what is now the championship matchup for ESPN leagues, stepping into the daily waters could be a way for many season-long managers whose campaigns have ended to convert this established knowledge base into a new format. What was once somewhat useless information in Aprils past — knowing which players are getting valuable surges in minutes and usage — is now somewhat actionable and worthy thanks to the daily game.
To spell out some guidelines, this series of articles is going to profile starting pitchers that have an ADP of 200 or better (meaning taken later than pick 200). In a 10 team league, those pitchers would be going in round 21 or later (it would be mid-way through round 16 in a 12 team league). By that point in your draft, you have more than likely filled out your starting offense and picked up an ace and closer, perhaps a couple more pitchers
It was popular last year, so, just like the Fast and the Furious movie series, we are going to run MY bold, fearless and insane predictions into the ground! No, but really, last year I gave you 105 predictions, but this year, in honor of my Cubs not winning the World Series once again, I give you:
106 (one for every year since my beloved Cubs have won the World Series) BOLD, FEARLESS AND INSANE MLB PREDICTIONS!
This week I’m going to look at some characteristics of players that are being overvalued in 2015. Now, we’ve come a long way in this respect as well. Even fantasy baseball beginners won’t be taking Bartolo Colon or Alfredo Simon as number 2 starters because they won 15 games last year. We know Henderson Alvarez is no ace because his 2.65 ERA is not supported by his low strikeouts and high WHIP.
I’ve advised, every day for years now, that a championship fantasy owner is perfectly prepared for his or her draft/auction with a complete, detailed cheat sheet that adheres to the specific rule specifications for his/her league. If you’re in a 12-team, $260-cap mixed auction league, your cheat-sheet player prices total $3,120, and you’ve decided on the percentage of that you feel should be invested in hitting and pitching (generally about 66 percent and 34 percent, respectively). These represent the prices you expect to pay at the draft table.
