Fantasy Freestyle: Recent Top Performers: Pitchers and Outfielders

J.P. Breen

A closer look at the players who've stood out on the bump and at the plate of late.

Fantasy baseball necessitates relying on small sample sizes for day-to-day or week-to-week decisions, despite the recognition that it’s not desirable. I’ve written about that phenomenon in this space before. It means fantasy owners must take a gamble that some short samples are real, as the strategy of fantasy baseball doesn’t allow long-term trends to develop before acting. Players simply aren’t available long enough for a wait-and-see approach.

Closer Report: Week 20

1

Matt Collins

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

Sort of a quiet week in Reliever Land, but the Closer Report never sleeps. Well, except in the offseason. The Closer Report hibernates, I guess. That’s all I got for an intro. As always, keep up with the action on the closer grid. Let’s get on with this.

Deep League Report: Week 20

Examining players who might pique your interest in deeper formats.

You’re in luck. It’s East Coast Bias week at the Deep League Report, which means an all-Yankee lineup in the AL-only position player section. Let’s dive in.

A look at how the wise guys spent their money in expert leagues this week.

Welcome to The FAAB Review, the series that looks at the expert bidding in LABR mixed, Tout Wars NL, and Tout Wars AL every week in an effort to try and help you, the Baseball Prospectus reader, with your fantasy baseball bidding needs. Bret Sayre and I participate in LABR Mixed while I have a team in Tout Wars NL, so I can provide some insight on the bids and the reasoning behind them. LABR uses a $100 budget with one-dollar minimum bids, while the Tout Wars leagues use a $1,000 budget with zero-dollar minimum bids. I will also be including Bret’s winning bids in Tout Wars mixed auction league where applicable.

LABR and Tout Wars both use a bidding deadline of Sunday at midnight ET.

The Dodgers third baseman has been sizzling at the plate after rediscovering his pull-side pop.

Despite the $250 million Opening Day payroll, it’s weird to assert that the Los Angeles Dodgers’ best hitter (in the non-Corey-Seager division) is a 31-year-old journeyman who was non-tendered by the Mets just three years ago.

The Stash List: 19th Edition, 2016

J.J. Jansons

Yulieski Gurriel leads off the final Stash List of the year.

This week’s Stash List will serve as the final edition of the season and I would like to take a moment to thank everybody for all of the feedback that I’ve received this year, both in the comments section below and via email/Twitter. It’s obviously hard to determine organizational timelines when dealing with prospect call-ups and all of the business reasons that factor into the decisions behind them at times, so while I’ve been wrong plenty of times this season, I hope you’ve found this column useful and enjoyable this year in your quest for fantasy (or worldwide) domination.

For a refresher on the four types of players that are eligible for inclusion on this list, please see the first edition of the year to find out why players like A.J. Pollock, Michael Brantley, Danny Salazar, Joe Ross, Tyson Ross, Clayton Kershaw, and Zack Greinke are not listed below.

Fantasy Starting Pitcher Planner: Week 19

Greg Wellemeyer

Helping you set your fantasy rotation for next week with a look at the two-start pitchers.

Welcome to the starting pitcher planner, where every Friday I’ll be taking a look at the pitchers slated for two turns in the upcoming week. The hope is that the planner can help guide lineup and FAAB decisions that need to be made over the weekend. Of course, my information isn’t perfect and I don’t have a crystal ball. Rain, injuries, and teams reshuffling between when I write and Monday’s first pitch will definitely happen. If new information comes to light after we publish, I’ll try to tackle it in the comments. Feel free to beat me to it if you have any info, and I’ll be glad to offer my opinion there if you want it.

Let’s get some ground rules out the way before getting started. The pitchers will be split by league and then by category. Here are some general thoughts about the categories:

A look at how the wise guys spent their money in expert leagues this week.

Welcome back to The FAAB Review, the series that looks at the expert bidding in LABR mixed, Tout Wars NL, and Tout Wars AL every week in an effort to try and help you, the Baseball Prospectus reader, with your fantasy baseball bidding needs. Mike Gianella is on vacation this week, so we’ve handed the control over to George Bissell to navigate us through the post trade deadline landscape.

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

Welcome to the first post-trade deadline Closer Report. This one is a bit of a let down after the last few, as there were no deals made involving ninth inning arms. Don’t you worry, though, as there was still news. Unsurprisingly, some of that news even came hours after the last edition of this post was published. Who could’ve seen that coming? Anyway, let’s get right into it, and all wonder what will happen in the next six hours that is relevant to fantasy owners. As always, keep up with everything with the closer grid.

Examining players who might pique your interest in deeper formats.

This week’s Deep League Report features the big-name guys who switched leagues during the last 24 hours prior to the trading deadline alongside the players normally featured in this space: utility players, swingmen, and marginal prospects. Let’s get going.

Is there reason to believe that the Nats second sacker's offensive breakout might soon slow?

It’s impossible to watch enough baseball to be intimately familiar with all major-league hitters or major-league pitchers. Most of us have specific teams that we follow or players who we try to watch most nights, but Major League Baseball has umpteen dozen players with whom we’re familiar only through their stat line.
