Fantasy Categorical Breakdowns

The Landscape: Runs/RBI

by George Bissell


If you’ve been following our Fantasy Categorical Breakdown series, you’re aware that the birth of the Rob Manfred era has catalyzed a high-octane offensive environment and dramatically reshaped the fantasy landscape over just a two-year span. As league-wide home run totals continue to skyrocket, nearly a quarter of all plate appearances now end in a strikeout, and stolen bases have declined to their lowest level in decades.

The primary aim of this series is to analyze the impact of these recent contextual trends and how fantasy owners should respond in 2017. For each fantasy category, we’re providing a 10,000-foot overview—such as this article here—to go along with a specific article highlighting 2016 over/underachievers and another one targeted for deeper leagues.

We’ve covered the unpresidented unprecedented league-wide run scoring uptick in considerable detail throughout the offseason. Its impact is reflected once again in the fantasy valuation of a single run and RBI.
