Prospectus Feature: Using the PFM and BP's Fantasy Tools

<< Previous Author Entries No More Author Entries

George Bissell, Mike Gianella and Bret Sayre outline their strategic approaches to the fantasy playoffs including: relying on studs that got you there versus riding the hot hand and several useful wavier wire targets. They also banter about Rhys Hoskins insane hot streak, Victor Robles long-term potential, and some names to target in keeper and dynasty formats. Finally, they take a quick look ahead to 2018 by debating Giancarlo Stanton’s fantasy value.

George Bissell, Mike Gianella and Bret Sayre outline their strategic approaches to the fantasy playoffs including: relying on studs that got you there versus riding the hot hand (8:00) and several useful wavier wire targets in Luis Valbuena (14:30), Kyle Gibson (15:30), Nick Castellanos (17:00), Jeimer Candelario (19:00) and Nick Williams (20:00). They also banter about Rhys Hoskins insane hot streak (20:30), Victor Robles long-term potential (23:30), and some names to target in keeper and dynasty formats over the final few weeks like Willie Calhoun, Wilmer Difo, Dominic Smith, Matt Chapman, Marwin Gonzalez and Raul Mondesi (27:00). Finally, they take a quick look ahead to 2018 by debating Giancarlo Stanton’s fantasy value (33:00).

The Call-Up: Dominic Smith

1

Jarrett Seidler and Bret Sayre

The youth movement in Queens continues. Please don't tell Terry Collins.

The Situation: The Mets are trying to sell that dealing top rental bats Lucas Duda and Jay Bruce off for marginal relief prospects was largely to create playing time for top first base prospect Dominic Smith. So here he is.

The Call-Up: Nick Williams

Jarrett Seidler and Bret Sayre

It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing.

The Situation: This was supposed to be the season that the Phillies came out of their rebuild, but instead they have the worst record in baseball. Michael Saunders was supposed to bridge the gap between Philadelphia’s outfield of today and outfield of tomorrow, but was instead so bad that he was released. The overall situation is even more dire, as with the exception of Aaron Altherr, the Phillies’ group of promising young MLB hitters has all spiraled down in performance at once—as has top prospect J.P. Crawford at Triple-A. So with just a group of random Quad-A guys in the outfield corner not featuring Aaron Altherr, why not give the best outfield prospect in the system some run?

George, Mike and Bret discuss the recent promotion of Franklin Barreto and the five players they’re each keeping an eye on over the remainder of the season: George Springer, Hanley Ramirez, Alex Wood, Anthony Rendon, Ryan Zimmerman, Gary Sanchez, Josh Harrison, Odubel Herrera, Robbie Ray, Luis Severino, Andrew Miller, Aaron Nola, Carlos Santana, Cameron Maybin and Chris Taylor.
