Dynasty Dynamics: What the Hell Is Happening: AL Edition

3

Ben Carsley

These four junior-circuit players have risen from anonymity to prominence, but should we expect them to stay fantasy-relevant going forward?

The other day I watched a baseballing game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Boston Red Sox. Brad Miller and Sandy Leon featured prominently in this affair, and it left me feeling confused. One thing led to another, and I decided to write this column in part to help shed some light on other players in the AL who have also astounded me with their performances this year. If they confuse you too, I hope this helps.

Eloy Jimenez, Yoan Moncada, and Jorge Mateo are among the players on the squad who might be future fantasy studs.

The BP Prospect Staff released scouting reports of the U.S. and World rosters for the upcoming Futures Game. Read them. Get to know them. Love them. That’s where you can find the real meat and potatoes of this dish. I am looking to translate those scouting reports into a usable fantasy context.

Dynasty Dynamics: Six Dynasty Prospects to Stash or Flip

4

Ben Carsley

Examining a half-dozen minor leaguers who might be worth grabbing in your leagues.

Three weeks ago I took a look at seven prospects you might want to grab in deep dynasty leagues to either trade or to build around. Time has passed, and now I have six different names for you. You may read more about the premise in the first installment here. Good day.

Dynasty Dynamics: Seven Prospects to Stash or Flip

Ben Carsley

Examining whether now's the time to buy or sell a bundle of prospects who are off to hot starts.

So you’ve missed out on Ronald Acuna, Harrison Bader is gone, Dylan Cozens never loved you, someone snapped up Hunter Dozier in April, and even The Other Cody Reed is owned. It’s been tough sledding for you when it comes to grabbing the hot new talent in the minors this season, and your dynasty league’s MiLB roster is looking a bit thin as a result.

Dynasty Dynamics: Rebuilding in TGDX, Part II

Ben Carsley

An update on Ben's efforts to restock his dynasty-league squad with future contributors.

Back in early April, I broke down what had been a busy offseason for my #TDGX team and promised to fill you in on updates as the season progressed. Seven weeks later, it seems as good a time as any to review the moves I’ve made through the season’s early days, which include a blockbuster trade and a whole lot of small, unexciting waiver wire pick-ups. Yay rebuilding!

Dynasty Dynamics: Rebuilding in TDGX

Ben Carsley

Ben recounts the trades he made in an effort to restore his dynasty-league squad into a contender down the road.

Flags Fly Forever. This is a well-established sleep aid concept at Baseball Prospectus, and it’s what caused me to get very aggressive when The Dynasty Guru Experts League was founded two years ago. This 20-team, 5x5, 35-keeper (including 10 minor league slots) expert dynasty league was created by Bret Sayre to pit knowledgeable, dedicated dynasty league fanatics against each other, as well as provide us with plenty of column material for years to come.

Ben puts his own spin on the best long-term fantasy assets in baseball.

Last year was the first year I published my own Dynasty Top 101 list on Baseball Prospectus. As I explained in that piece, I used to sort of complete with Bret Sayre when it comes to dynasty stuff. Then I heard the expression “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em,” teamed up with Bret at TheDynastyGuru.com and, three years later, I get to annoy you people at least twice a month at Baseball Prospectus.

The risers and fallers down in the desert.

It’s been a bit since we brought you a prospect progress report, but with postseason play entering its final week and the Arizona Fall League earning more of the spotlight going forward, we thought we’d take a look at some players who got off to interesting starts. This isn’t necessarily just a check in on box-score stars, but rather players who have dynasty value and have seen that value shift one way or the other over the course of the season, and who will be worth keeping tabs on throughout the AFL.

Stolen bases are down across the league, so where can fantasy owners turn to find swipes for their squads?

There were 2,505 stolen bases last season. Sounds like a lot, right?
