Fantasy Categorical Breakdowns: On-Base Percentage

5

George Bissell

A 30,000-foot-high survey of the opportunities and strategies to help your fantasy squad excel in the OBP department.

Welcome back to the second installment of our 2017 Fantasy Categorical Breakdown series. If you’ve been following closely, 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.

Fantasy Categorical Breakdowns: The Landscape: Wins

0

George Bissell

Specialized bullpens and individual pitchers' contextual factors have made compiling Ws trickier for fantasy owners.

Jose Quintana is the unluckiest starting pitcher in baseball. It’s not even that close. The 27-year-old southpaw has logged an astounding 96 quality starts since signing with the White Sox as a minor-league free agent castoff. Only 14 pitchers have recorded more quality starts over the last five years. Of that exclusive cluster, Quintana’s 46 wins rank dead last. Nobody else has fewer than 61. An apt comparison would be Bobby Flay masterfully grilling rib-eye steaks, only to watch his staggeringly incompetent sous chef drop half of them on the floor. Quintana has consistently pitched like an iron chef for nearly half a decade. However, his win total is straight out of Hell’s Kitchen.

These counting stats don't draw as much attention as their flashier counterparts, but they're just as important.

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.

Fantasy Categorical Breakdowns: The Landscape: WHIP

George Bissell

Allowing baserunners is a bad thing, and pitchers were consistently getting better at it. Until last year, that is.

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.
