Fantasy Team Preview: New York Mets

6

Bret Sayre

There aren't many high-end fantasy assets in Queens, but a youth movement could soon change that.

There hasn’t been much to get excited about in Queens over the past five or six seasons—unless you get joy out of watching the franchise greats take the field day in and day out. Of course, there was also the 2012 National League Cy Young Award winner who captured the hearts and minds of those paying attention—though he was traded a couple of months after receiving the hardware. And then, when there is an exciting young attraction worth watching, of course he ends up undergoing Tommy John surgery before the end of his breakout season. However, the roster has been improved through trades and free agency, adding a little extra fantasy relevance to what has been a pretty stale roster in the recent past. Though, as you’ll see from the rest of this preview, high-end talent is still severely lacking.

Projected Lineup

Bret recaps the selections that he and Mike Gianella made in a mock draft held last week.

Last Tuesday night, Mike Gianella and I participated in the first prominent experts league draft of the season, the LABR (League of Alternative Baseball Reality) mixed league. For background, this is a 15-team snake draft and a standard 5x5 rotisserie format with two catchers and the standard roster designations everywhere else. Mike and I had many conversations about this draft leading up to Tuesday night, and what made this both comforting and easy was that we were very much in sync with our strategy and a lot of our valuations—making for a stress-free (at least between each other) evening.

If you want to see the full draft board for all participants, that is available here. We had the seventh pick in the draft, which had its benefits and its issues. In the first round, we did not think it was optimal, as there was a pretty clear top four and the next 10 picks or so really came down to preference. However, my view is that it’s always beneficial to be in the middle of the round so you don’t have to wait so long between picks in case the draft shifts on you quickly. There were a couple of times at which we may have been out of luck if we were positioned on an end (especially in the early going with starting pitching and the middle rounds with closers), but we used the spot to our advantage.
