2015 Fantasy Dynasty Shortstop Rankings

As rough as second base is offensively, shortstop might be even worse. The top options at the position are still relatively sexy, but they all come with their own drawbacks. After the top five you get into players with low upside or prospects that haven’t yet played in any meaningful games. As dynasty owners we get to witness players grow and mature while he follow them, sometimes...

Kris Bryant, 2015 Fantasy Outlook

Okay, so I'm basically going to have to do a post for every Cubs prospect. They have me prospiqued. I've been knocked on the head and no one can find any smelling salts, so they're holding Cubs prospects under my nose. A Nubian genie is offering me three wishes and I'm taking three Cubs prospects. I already gave you my Jorge Soler fantasy. Today, it's Kris...

Joc Pederson, 2015 Fantasy Outlook

The other day I said that Jorge Soler was going to be your top rookie in 2015 fantasy baseball. Big words from a little man. At least I am a man, and not just an italicized voice. Joc Pederson would've been the top rookie if I saw the Dodgers committed to him out of spring training. There's still time for that to happen. Like trading Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford for...

2015 Fantasy Dynasty Third Base Rankings

If you own one of the top 15 guys on this list as your dynasty league third baseman, then you have to be feeling pretty good about the position, or at least that it isn’t a huge hole on your team. Third base is very deep at the top and the prospects at the position are among the most dynamic power threats in the game. We saw a lot of breakouts in 2014 including Anthony Rendon...

2015 Fantasy Dynasty Second Base Rankings

Second base is one of the least exciting positions on the diamond right now for fantasy players. If you don’t own one of the top two guys at the position, then you own a player who fits one of two molds: High upside and consistency issues, or worse, Someone boring with very little upside The good news is that if you’re in a dynasty league, you never have to wait to long for the...

Playing for Keeps: Wil Myers

The Royals are in the World Series, and it's going to be mentioned at some point that the organization moved a big prospect in Wil Myers to acquire two of the pieces that brought them so much success this year. Last season, it looked like the Rays were going to be the ones that ran away with the trade. Myers won Rookie of the Year. He hit .293/.354/.478 with 13 homers and drove...

2015 Fantasy Dynasty First Base Rankings

First Base is a deep position as usual but unlike a lot of the positions we will cover over this series there are not many of great prospects on the horizon.  This is a premium power position on the diamond and one you cannot take a risk on if you are going to build a successful fantasy team. In many ways I look at this position as the cornerstone of my dynasty league teams because...

The '14 Orioles Are Not The '04 Red Sox

In 2004, the Boston Red Sox won their first World Series title since 1918, 86 years earlier. Stacked with a roster that featured Pedro Martinez, Curt Schilling, Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz and Johnny Damon, Boston did the unthinkable, coming back from down 3-0 to the New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series.

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Disappointments — Second Basemen

Source: Ed Zurga/Getty Images North America It’s certainly interesting looking at fantasy baseball through the prism of disappointments. Obviously there are disappointments at every position, but it is also interesting that some positions disappoint as a whole. Nowhere is that more true than second base (and third base which we will see next). While every position has its Jose...

2015 Fantasy Dynasty Catcher Rankings

Catcher is without a doubt one of the most difficult positions to plan for in a dynasty league since prospects at the position take so long to develop. The position itself requires so much game planning with the pitching staff that the offense sometimes doesn’t show up until the player’s mid-20s (e.g., Devin Mesoraco). You’ll see this reflected in my rankings as I’m much...

Early 2015 Fantasy Catcher Rankings

Now that 2014 has come to an end (fantasy wise) it’s time to start thinking about 2015, and what better place is there to start than with some autumn rankings. I’m not going to go into great depth about positional narratives, nor will you find broad positional themes here. What you will find is the meat and potatoes, which includes rankings, key positional eligibility changes...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Josh Donaldson, Year End Review

Source: Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images North America After each season ends, I look forward to looking back at divisive players to see how they fared. I did so with Carlos Gomez a couple of weeks ago. Spoiler: the people who believed in him were right, and he looks like a perennial top 15 talent for the time being. Josh Donaldson was another player that seemed to pit fantasy players...
