Nomar comin'.

The Situation: Shin-Soo Choo’s hamstring injury has opened the door for Nomar Mazara, the Rangers top prospect, to get his first taste of big-league action. The Rangers have opted for the sweet-swinging lefty, over previous call up Joey Gallo, who they’ve left in Triple-A to get more time at third base.

My Model Portfolio: The 70/30 Split ... Almost

Bret Sayre

Bret aims to spend 70 percent of his budget on bats, and comes a dollar short with high-upside outfielders in tow.

Mike Gianella recently released his latest mixed league Bid Limits for 2016, which reignited an idea from Bret Sayre called Model Portfolios, wherein the fantasy staff will create their own team within the confines of a standard 23-man, $260 budget. The roster being constructed includes: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, CI, MI, OFx5, UTx2, and Px9 along with the following standards issued by our fantasy overlord, Mr. Sayre:

We are using the mixed-league values.

Fantasy Freestyle: Endgame Targets

10

Bret Sayre

Notes on Bret's favorite cheap contributors, across -only, mixed, and various-sized formats.

For me, this column is the sign of the offseason coming full circle. The sign that we have made it through another winter without baseball, and have hopefully given you, the reader, some good knowledge to take with you into your drafts and auctions this month. And the timing is only fitting because we’re talking about the endgame here, just as we hit the endgame of our draft coverage. Before I hurt myself stretching into new parallels, here are twenty 19 players who I think make for good targets at the end of various-sized leagues.

Fantasy Draft Rankings: The Top 300

13

Mike Gianella and Bret Sayre

Mike and Bret unveil their top 300 overall players for this year's draft.

This is a list of the Top 300 players as ranked by Bret Sayre and Mike Gianella. This list assumes standard 23 man rosters with two catchers, which is why the list is so catcher-heavy at the bottom. If you play in a league with one catcher, adjust accordingly.

ADP is from NFBC ADP, and is updated as of yesterday’s posted rankings on Stats Inc.’s website.
