Fantasy Infographic: Third Base

8

Mauricio Rubio

A visual ranking of the players at the hot corner and their projected statistical contributions.

Here’s the primer for this series.

Notes
Kris Bryant is going to get a lot of roto love in drafts coming up, but if we look at the graph PECOTA charts out for him, we find him lacking. This is a situation we’ve encountered before with players like Matt Wieters and Jurickson Profar: PECOTA doesn’t like his playing-time forecast but it does have him putting up a solid slash line. Ultimately, Bryant is the wildcard of the position—he could out-earn everyone or merely be a middle-tier third baseman.

Fantasy Infographic: Second Base

5

Mauricio Rubio

A visual breakdown of the statistical categories in which keystoners might help or hurt your team.

Graphics Primer

Second base is the first position we’ve covered that features variability in individual skill sets. There are some hitters who can hit 20-25 home runs, some players who can steal 30-plus bases, and some players who can provide a substantial amount of everything in standard 5x5 leagues. It creates for a variety of different shapes. Take these for example:

Fantasy Infographic: First Basemen

14

Mauricio Rubio

A visual look at how the players at this position can help or hurt your fantasy squad in the standard statistical categories.

Here’s the primer for this infographic series.

First base is a very different animal from the rest of the positions, fantasy-wise. There are some heavy hitters who can carry your team as illustrated by the five tier guys. The middle class still has value fantasy wise and it’s not until you hit the dregs of the position that you start to run into guys who can actively hurt you in spite of their strengths.

Fantasy Infographic: Catchers

22

Mauricio Rubio

A visual look at our tiered catcher rankings and the categories in which each player can be expected to contribute.

Last year, I made fantasy infographics for each position, describing where players contribute the most in the standard 5x5 categories in a streamlined and easy-to-read fashion. I’ve tweaked my work in the offseason and I am bringing them back in a slightly different form with a slightly different process.

I’m still only comparing like positions to each other; for each position I take the top 30 players as listed by Mike Gianella, break them down into tiers, and come up with statistical averages and standard deviations using our very own PECOTA system. I did this so that we can compare like things to like things and to serve as a prep for the other graphs that are coming down the line. I’m sorry to say that the values and averages aren’t public at this time, so I can’t quite give you my formula here. Also there will be a big OBP graph at the end of the series as well as a graph that compares players to each other regardless of position, which was something of a hot request last year.
