Fantasy Starting Pitcher Planner: Week 16

6

Mark Barry

Gerrit Cole, your table is ready (again).

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.

Most of these recommendations are based on a combination of ADP/auction price and PECOTA projections for opponent strength. As the season progresses and we get more concrete data points for how the pitchers and their opponents perform, the formula will evolve into a performance-based projection. For more information on some key terms—Auto-Start, Start, Consider and Sit—click here.

Deep League Report: Week 16

Mike Gianella

The Nationals revamped bullpen offers a pair of high-end bidding opportunities.

Welcome back to The Deep League Report, the article that profiles the backup catchers, fourth outfielders, and middle relievers the other websites don’t have the guts to discuss. Scooter Hotz is on vacation this week. I’ll be filling his rather big shoes with knowledge…but also with love. Wow. This got really weird really fast. (All statistics in this article are through Monday night’s games)

AL-only position players

Zack Granite—real person, or Flintstones character?

Welcome back to The FAAB Review, the weekly series that looks at FAAB bidding in expert leagues to help you, the Baseball Prospectus reader, with your fantasy baseball bidding needs. Every week, I closely scrutinize the expert free agent bids in LABR Mixed, Tout Wars NL, and LABR AL.

As a reminder, LABR uses a $100 budget with $1 minimum bids, while Tout Wars uses a $1,000 budget with $0 minimum bids. LABR and Tout Wars use a bidding deadline of Sunday at midnight ET for all FAAB claims. Any statistics mentioned in this article are through the previous Sunday’s games.

The Buyer's Guide: Jhoulys Chacin

2

Eric Roseberry

Since the start of June, Chacin has been a valuable commodity—but will it continue

Jhoulys Chacin did not have the best start to the 2017 season. In his first start of the year, he gave up nine earned runs against the Dodgers. Chacin gave up another seven runs four starts later at the hands of the Diamondbacks. By the time the baseball season reached the end of April, Chacin was 3-3 with a 5.82 ERA. The threat of him imploding on any given night made him a player to avoid for fantasy purposes.

It's time again to set your rotation!

It's time to preview the hurlers scheduled for two starts in the upcoming week.

Should new information present itself, we can go over it in the comments.

Jose Quintana moving from the AL to the NL is the rare case when players in an -only league discover "found money" in FAAB free agency. Those who saved can prosper. All-too-frequently however, it can be shrewder to use FAAB money earlier, incrementally, because "big-fish" free agents simply never come.

Deep League Report: Week 15

1

Scooter Hotz

Taking a deep dive to check out Ji-Man Choi, Alex Presley, Miguel Montero, Anibal Sanchez, Steve Cishek, Trevor Hildenberger, Miguel Gomez, Tommy La Stella, Chris Heisey, Jhoulys Chacin, Nick Wittgren, George Kontos.

It’s a short week in roto, with no games for four straight days. I suggest that you take advantage of the break and spend a few days thinking about things other baseball, reconnecting with friends and family and getting a little rest so you can come back to the game refreshed in a few days.

The Buyer's Guide: Orlando Arcia

4

Eric Roseberry

Does a recently high batting average bode well for Arcia's immediate fantasy future?

Orlando Arcia made his major-league debut in 2016. Initially, his fantasy value was thought to be limited because his defense was his most valuable asset. Over the course of those 55 games, Arcia hit .219/.273/.358 with four home runs, 21 runs scored, 17 RBIs and eight stolen bases. His fantasy stock wasn’t high coming into 2017. Arcia did rate as a two-star player in Mike Gianella’s initial shortstop rankings, but Mike admitted this was “a speculative pick based on stats from a year ago.”

Fantasy Starting Pitcher Planner: First Half in Review

0

Mark Barry

Looking back (and a little forward) at the hits and misses of 2017 through the midway point.

It’s halftime. Let’s take a breath, enjoy the festivities, and take a look back at how wrong I was in the first half. This week we’re going to review the starting pitchers that made the biggest leaps (or suffered the biggest falls) with our weekly confidence. Hopefully by the end, we’ll have a little more clarity about what happened, whether it is likely to continue, and how we can make second-half predictions that are flawless and perfect and the best predictions that anyone has ever made in history. You know, or something like that.
