Five to Watch: NL Post-Hype Pitchers

0

Wilson Karaman

The prospect shine might've worn off these arms, but they're still worthy of your attention.

Mike Foltynewicz, RHP, Atlanta Braves (ADP: 85th SP, 312th Overall)

It might be a touch early to label Foltynewicz a post-hype guy, but the former 19th overall pick has logged nearly 230 innings across parts of the last three seasons in the big leagues with a 5.46 DRA, so I’m going to assume there are enough skeptics in the room to warrant some discussion here.

Fantasy Auction Values: Fourth Edition, 2017

Mike Gianella

Mike updates his bid limits based on the latest news and happenings around the league.

Below is my fourth bid limit update. As we get closer to Opening Day, the amount of individual bid updates will increase. This update is tied entirely to news and information about Spring Training. Next week’s update is the fifth and final bid limit update and will be chock full of changes based on breaking news as well as on what I saw at the Tout Wars expert auctions, which take place this coming weekend.

Changes of two dollars in either direction will be listed below for players with significant value. Mixed league bids will reflect the same valuation change unless otherwise noted.

TTO Scoresheet Podcast: Episode 97

2

Ian Lefkowitz, Ben Murphy and Jared Weiss

The Outcomes take listener questions, discuss some of "their guys," and talk WBC.

The Three True Outcomes podcast is back with our fifth episode of 2017. We take some listener questions about soft versus hard and whether we’d want Mookie Betts on our team. We go through a list of our guys (aka, players you should avoid). Finally, we share our love of the WBC. And both puzzle and dragons.

Fantasy Freestyle: Auction Prep: Auction Podcast Takeaways

1

Jeff Quinton

After discussion his strategies on the Flags Fly Forever podcast this week, Jeff recaps what he learned to help you prepare for your league's auction.

Earlier this week, George and Mike from the Flags Fly Forever podcast were kind enough to have me on to discuss auction strategy and the decision-making process. When I write my articles from my typing cove (really, my apartment’s kitchenette), I do not get to bounce ideas off of people in real time or get to listen to the in-depth thoughts of others on auction strategy like I did when on the podcast. Consequently, the podcast (which you can listen to here) helped clarify and even bring to light some new beliefs and ideas that I believe will help us in our quest to improve our auction strategies, strategic process, and decision-making as we endeavor to chase flags that will fly forever. Again, I would highly recommend listening to the podcast, but additionally, I have recapped and expanded on some of the ideas and recommendations discussed—advice that I am going to be trying to heed come my final auction preparation this week and come my two auctions this weekend

1. Always prepare and analyze with opportunity cost in mind

Fantasy Freestyle: Reviewing the 2016 Model Portfolios

Greg Wellemeyer

Looking back on how our staff members fared with their ideal fantasy rosters last season.

Our positional coverage is all wrapped up and draft season is drawing to a close as Opening Day nears. One series we’ll be rolling out starting next week is My Model Portfolio, wherein our staff members will each pick a roster using Mike Gianella’s final bid limits, which will be published tomorrow.

Before we get there, though, how about a little accountability on last year’s picks? I’m judging these purely based on how much difference there was between Mike’s preseason bid limits and his postseason retrospective valuations. There is no consideration for roster balance or categorical strength, this is purely an evaluation of whose draft day roster created the most raw profit over the course of the season.

Five to Watch: American League Post-Hype Prospects

Ben Carsley

The prospect shine might have worn off these players, but they're still worthy of your attention in fantasy formats.

I don’t know if you’ve ever heard this before, but prospects will break your heart. Most of them don’t pan out. Many of them fall off the face of the earth all together. And nearly all of them, even the ones who do turn out the way you dreamed, don’t do so right away.

Scooter Hotz

Scooter breaks down his keepers and recaps his selections in his first draft of the spring.

Last night, I had my first draft or auction of the season. It’s my second season in the league, which is a fairly casual one with friends, a lot of whom are more inclined towards fantasy football than fantasy baseball. Here are some other league settings for background:

Greg Wellemeyer

Identifying a handful of senior-circuit prospects who are worthy of your attention.

Bret Sayre and Ben Carsley gave you their top 100 dynasty prospects a couple weeks ago and Carsley dropped 112 more names on you last week. As is my wont, I’m wading into still deeper waters to cover five guys that missed those lists. Applicability depends on league size, of course, but there should be a little something for everyone here, including re-drafters.
