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

Closer Report: Week 16

Matt Collins

Nationals trade should have brought clarity to Washington and Oakland, but it hasn't really done that yet.

Welcome to the Closer Report, and more importantly welcome to trade season. We had our first major reliever trade of the summer, and it involved the team we were all expecting it to include. That wasn’t the only news of the All-Star-shortened week, either, as a couple of committees are becoming slightly clearer. Before we move on to that, just a reminder you can keep up with all movement with the Closer Grid. Now, let’s get to the news.

Nationals finally address bullpen woes

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.

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.

Fantasy Freestyle: Catching Up With The Touts

Mike Gianella

Craig Kimbrel seems to be a common denominator among leading clubs.

With a light week of free-agent bids in LABR and no free-agent bids in Tout Wars until Thursday at midnight thanks to the All-Star Break, I decided to glimpse at the top of the standings in the three LABR leagues. Today, it is Tout Wars’ turn. This analysis is not designed to be a top-to-bottom review of all five Tout Wars expert leagues, but rather a brief look at what has gone right for some of the teams at the top of the standings to date. Can it help you in your leagues going forward? Let’s find out!

Fantasy Freestyle: The 10-Day DL and Six Degrees of the Dodgers Rotation

0

Mark Barry

Dodgers use of 10-day DL and six viable starters has aided their rotation and might give them an advantage all season. How can fantasy players take advanatge?

When the 10-day DL reemerged into our collective consciousness, the idea was relatively simple. Teams wanted to maintain roster flexibility while also protecting their players from “gutting it out” through lingering injuries that might not warrant missing two full weeks of the season. A secondary function of the new, abbreviated DL has unearthed itself over the first half of the season. The shorter DL trips have allowed teams to manipulate the traditional five-man starting rotation, and nobody has gamed the system quite like the Dodgers.
