Dynasty Dynamics: TINO Does Arizona, 2015

Ben Carsley and Craig Goldstein

Player observations from the duo's trip to the desert.

Craig and I went to Arizona again this year. We drank beer and stared into Jeff Quinton’s eyes and watched baseball. Here’s how we feel about some players we saw, because #scouting:

Fantasy Freestyle: 2014 Graduated Prospects, Part 2: 26-50

2

Ben Carsley

The second installment in the series looking at the future performance of last year's top promoted prospects.

Last week, I brought you the first installment in this series. This installment follows it, sequentially.

The disclaimer: Let’s take a look at all of the graduated prospects from Bret’s 2014 list, examine how they performed last year and what we can expect moving forward. For each player, I’ll simply render an “overvalued,” “properly valued” or “undervalued” verdict at the end of each writeup, based on current ADP (from FantasyPros.com) and to be used for the 2015 season only.

Reviewing the most highly regarded young'uns from our fantasy top 101 who debuted last year.

Fantasy prospect lists are great. We publish them, we debate them, we answer questions about them, and we refer to them in our work.

And four or five months after they go live, no one gives a damn about them anymore.

Fantasy Freestyle: A Different Dynasty Top 101 List

22

Ben Carsley

Ben takes on Bret with a competing ranking of the best fantasy-relevant talents in the minors.

Fun fact: I used to "compete" with Bret Sayre when it came to this stuff.

Before the days of Craig Goldstein and I joining the fantasy team, I considered Bret to be something of a rival in the niche world of dynasty fantasy writing. We both published top-100 lists every year. We both wrote extensively about minor leaguers. Neither of us were very good at Twitter. We were on a collision course.
