Fantasy Freestyle: A Few of My Favorite Dynasty League Targets

2

Wilson Karaman

Looking to Single-A for long-term help.

Outside of the BP staff league here, I pretty much only play in dynasty formats. Some of those leagues are shallower types – a 12-teamer with 7-man minor league rosters, a 14-teamer with 5 apiece – and others with no player universe restrictions and not-infrequent trades involving 15-year-old Dominicans and college freshmen who won’t be MLB Draft-eligible for two more seasons. Those of you knuckleheads who play in leagues more akin to the latter will have our Ocean’s Floor series to look forward to as usual this winter. For the rest of y’all normals, though, this column is designed more for your speed.

Every year around this time I like to take stock of the lower minors and pin down my helium guys to target before the balloons inflate too full. So without further ado, here are eight of my favorite A-ball targets for this winter in shallower and medium-depth dynasty leagues.

Last go-around for 2017.

It's time to preview the hurlers scheduled for two starts in the upcoming week. As the old wrestling promoters would always say: “Card Subject to Change,” because injuries and tinkering managers can make this less than a science. Should new information present itself, we can go over it in the comments.

Deep League Report: Week 25

Scooter Hotz

If you need to accumulate innings, you will find some prime candidates here.

Picking the NL-only pitchers to feature in the Deep League Report this week was easy. I just went with the three guys I bought in my deep NL-only home league Sunday night in a possibly futile attempt to rack up enough innings to meet my league’s minimum. Whom did I grab? Keep reading.

Closer Report: Week 25

Matt Collins

Even with the regular season winding down, some bullpens remain up for grabs.

Welcome back to the Closer Report. The season is coming to a close and, I won’t lie to you, the news is getting pretty thin these days are teams are just finishing out their years. That being said, those of you who are either in the playoffs or the thick of the race in your roto races still have some little advantages you can kind in bullpens. Before we get to that, just a reminder that you can keep up with any movement with the Closer Grid. Now, on to the news.

No sign of any "Go-Two" guys in the AL this week, but there's always Kershaw and Scherzer in the NL.

Fantasy Freestyle: The Other Out-of-Nowhere Power-Hitting Rookie

1

Matt Collins

Like Rhys Hoskins, Oakland's Matt Olson has surprised with his huge, huge power.

In both fantasy circles and real-life baseball circles, there is one rookie who is taking the league by storm. He has always been a decently regarded prospect, and the fact that he could hit for power has never really been a secret among those who followed minor-league baseball. On the other hand, he was never quite an elite prospect and absolutely nobody expected him to be a superstar, particularly not from Day 1. That’s what he’s doing, though, and he’s hitting home runs at a startling rate. It deserves your attention. No, I’m not talking about Rhys Hoskins. I’m talking about Matt Olson.

Thirtysomethings (but not Lou Collins).

It doesn’t get any more Deep League Report than multiple thirty-something players who spent most of the season in the minors. No need to dawdle, let’s dive right in.

We are coming down to the wire, but there still are moves to be made to fortify your bullpen.

Welcome back to one of the final editions of the Closer Report of the year. Though the season is winding down, we are actually coming off one of our busier weeks of the second half. There were some high-profile changes in some contending bullpens, as well as some injury news to keep an eye on. Before we get there, just a reminder to check up on the Closer Grid for new pecking orders around the league. Now, let’s get to the news.

Fantasy Freestyle: Late-Season Keeper-League Pickups

7

Scooter Hotz

Try sneaking one of these guys onto your roster heading into the offseason.

In keeper leagues, you try to balance your needs in the current season with your needs for upcoming seasons. That means that when you’re scanning the free agent pool, you’re not just looking for players who can help you this year. Of course, a lot depends on the specifics of your league: how deep it is, how much a player will cost as a keeper and how long you can keep him. Here are three guys to think about for next season.
