Dynasty Dynamics

Progress Report: Prospect Edition, Part Three

by Ben Carsley and Craig Goldstein


When you’ve done rankings and mock drafts for two straight months, you kind of wonder… why would anyone write about anything else? Sure there are draft grades, but those aren’t nearly as applicable to fantasy.

Then it hits you like a ton of bricks. Something like a… a stock watch. No. Everyone does that. What if you just called it something else. Yes, now you’re cooking with gas. What about a Progress Report? Perfect.

Really though, this is meant to be something a bit different than your standard stock watch. Fantasy stocks are easy to keep track of. If someone’s doing well, then their stock is high. If not, it goes the other direction. The progress report is meant to tell you about players who have seen their actual value change in the long-term dynasty sense - not just guys riding a hot streak.

To that end, we’re also including a “neutral” section for guys that have performed awfully or admirably but haven’t moved the needle in a substantial direction long-term.

Ben, I don't mean to be pedantic, but when you said in the piece about Josh Bell " position changes in the upper minors preclude MLB playing time in the near future," did you mean to say "are a prelude to"?

This isn't pedantic, as it completely changes what I was trying to say. And yes, you're right. We'll get it fixed - thanks!

Pedantic is a great long forgotten word...I remember a teacher describing it as "boring, like a teacher." It's one of those words that only literary types (oh, and me) can use correctly in a sentence, but not be able to state in five words or less what it actually means...At least it seems that way to me...The teacher who taught the word to me was one of those fun vocabulary builder types who started every class with a strange word none of us ever thought we'd use...I remember him accepting the definition above on pop quizzes even though it really doesn't hit the nail on the head for anyone...I'll remember the word for that alone...

Preachy?...Exacting?...Meticulous?...Fussy?...Hilarious is what I call it...
