Fantasy Freestyle: Dynasty Prospects: A Few of My Favorites

0

Wilson Karaman

Wilson recomments targeting these young'uns in midseason dynasty drafts and trades.

We’ve reached that point in the season where the minor leagues start to play their all-star games, and the first-half performers start migrating to their next respective levels, and the recent crop of draft picks starts to matriculate into short-season play, and the world is sunny and beautiful for prospect hounds. I play in a couple dynasty leagues that have mid-season prospect drafts, and I’ve always enjoyed the format. On one hand, it tends to encourage further prospect trading, as managers get faster and looser with their farmhands knowing they can replenish the coffers with recent draftees and J2 signees in short order. And on the other, there tends to be an opportunity to grab some helium guys that can get lost in the shuffle of the race to snag the newest first-rounders. So with that as my backdrop, here’s a list of some personal favorites to either make a play for in trade over the next couple weeks or add to your target list for an upcoming prospect draft.

Closer Report: Week 13

1

Matt Collins

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

We’re back to some semi-interesting news over the last week, with one of the top closers taken this spring being ousted from his role. Additionally, we have some injury return news as well as a few updates on our favorite situations. As always, keep up with everything on the closer grid. Quick programming note on the grid, I have recently moved to a new apartment and haven’t had WiFi all weekend, which is why I’ve been slow to update it. It should be back up to regular pace on Wednesday. Now, on to the news.

The Buyer's Guide: Steven Wright

1

J.P. Breen

Knuckleballers are a fickle breed, but is there reason to believe Steven Wright can sustain his success?

Knuckleballers confuse the hell out of me. As far as I’m concerned, they may as well have strolled right out of Area 51 and onto the pitcher’s mound because I don’t know what to do with them. My strategy in the past—and by the past, I mean, when it has come to R.A. Dickey—has been to simply avoid knuckleballers because I don’t believe projection systems handle them very well.

Deep League Report: Week 12

Scooter Hotz

Examining players who might pique your interest in deeper formats.

One of the position players in this week’s Deep League Report has taken the mound in an MLB game, and his average four-seam fastball velocity is about the same as one of the pitchers profiled this week. That’s kinda neat. And I saw one of the players profiled below in High-A last year before his first appearance on any Top Prospect lists, which is also kinda neat. But most importantly, I answer the question posed by Ayn Rand nearly 60 years ago: Who is John Gant?

Fantasy Starting Pitcher Planner: Week 13

2

Greg Wellemeyer

Helping you set your fantasy rotation for next week with a look at the two-start pitchers.

Welcome to the starting pitcher planner, where every Friday I’ll be taking a look at the pitchers slated for two turns in the upcoming week. The hope is that the planner can help guide lineup and FAAB decisions that need to be made over the weekend. Of course, my information isn’t perfect and I don’t have a crystal ball. Rain, injuries, and teams reshuffling between when I write and Monday’s first pitch will definitely happen. If new information comes to light after we publish, I’ll try to tackle it in the comments. Feel free to beat me to it if you have any info, and I’ll be glad to offer my opinion there if you want it.

Let’s get some ground rules out the way before getting started. The pitchers will be split by league and then by category. Here are some general thoughts about the categories:

Mike Gianella

Examining the players who've earned their fantasy pay to this point in the season and those who haven't.

We are about 72 games into the season and closing in on the true halfway mark. So it seems like as good a time as any to take a look at the hitters and pitchers who have delivered for their fantasy teams so far and the ones who have not.

The Stash List: 12th Edition, 2016

The top two remain the same this week, but the top five welcomes an entrant who ranked outside last week's top 10.

For a refresher on the four types of players that are eligible for inclusion on this list, please see the first edition of the year to find out why players like A.J. Pollock, Michael Brantley, and Raisel Iglesias are not listed below.

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.

George Bissell

Welcome back to the latest installment of TDGX Transactions, BP’s weekly series providing fantasy owners with an inside look at The Dynasty Guru Experts League (TDGX), a 20-team (40-man roster) 5x5 rotisserie dynasty league.
