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.

Fantasy Freestyle: Targeting Under-the-Radar Prospects for Rebuilds

5

J.P. Breen

Dynasty-leaguers taking the long view might want to target these underappreciated young'uns in trades this spring.

Dynasty leagues have increased in popularity in recent years for multiple reasons, including a boom in prospect knowledge and a desire for year-round fantasy activity. It’s a format that allows hardcore baseball fans an excuse to obsess over minor-league development. It’s also a format that gives everyone, from the owners in contention for a championship to the owners toiling at the bottom of the standings, a reason to remain committed to the league at all times. In fact, Baseball Prospectus has an aptly named podcast—There Is No Offseason—that’s dedicated to these kind of leagues, and they’re the leagues that overwhelmingly inspire questions in our “Bat Signal” queue.

The best of the rest of the future fantasy contributors on the mound.

Welcome down to the depths below the positional top 50—or in this case the top 175—where each week we scavenge for potential crumbs among the current professional ranks and look mercifully into the future for the next wave of fantasy talent at each position. This series is geared towards those of you in deeper dynasty formats, particularly those either with a mid-season minor-league draft or with no eligibility restrictions on the player pool. This will be the last installment of the series for this year, as we’ve already completed our look at the position players, and since we’ll be pivoting next week to relievers I figure I’ll spare every one clicking on a link that just leads you to a giant shruggy-emoticon guy. Here’s the positional series breakdown thus far:

Which of these 24-year-olds is the better long-term fantasy bet?

In addition to the rankings by Bret Sayre and the supplemental pieces by Wilson Karaman, the fantasy team has been offering up head-to-head comparisons of two closely ranked up-and-comers as part of the dynasty portion of our positional overview. Today, I take a break from prospect-focused duels to examine two 24-year-old starters with major-league experience, Andrew Heaney and Yordano Ventura.

Get to Know: Starting Pitcher Prospects for 2017 and Beyond

A glimpse of the fantasy future on the bump.

There’s an argument to be made that you should only invest in like four or five players on this list, but let’s be real; you can’t help yourself. Seriously, most of these guys will fail and make you sad. But so long as pitching categories exist, starter prospects are a necessary evil.
