Fantasy Freestyle: Picking Fifth

9

Mauricio Rubio

The top four picks in redraft leagues are relatively clear-cut, but whom should you target if your selection is just outside that tier?

Depending on what you value, there’s a distinct separation in 12-team 5x5 draft formats when it comes to the fifth pick. Mike Trout, Miguel Cabrera, Paul Goldschmidt,and Andrew McCutchen all deserve to go in the no. 1-4 spots, and I don’t think there can be much debate on that. The big question facing owners picking fifth is a value-based one. I was handed the no. 5 pick in a home league, so let’s take a look at some of the names that I thought about taking there. (Note: I’m concentrating solely on 12-team leagues, so your mileage may vary).

Clayton Kershaw
Kershaw is a popular choice here judging by the ADPs across a few different sites. The reasons are obvious: Kershaw is the best pitcher in baseball right now; he’s a good bet to help across four categories again this year; and there’s a decent amount of uncertainty with the position players who would also be the fifth-overall pick.

The Darkhorses: Runs Batted In

0

BP Fantasy Staff

A look at the hitters who could outperform their PECOTA projections in RBI.

One of the fun ways we all try to outsmart our opponents in fantasy is by searching for hidden value in players who, for one reason or another, we suspect have the ability to outpace their projections (and, relatedly, their draft cost). Our Darkhorses series features staff picks for players who could very well outpace their PECOTA projections for the year and provide the top overall production in one of the standard five-by-five categories. We’ve all picked one player currently projected by PECOTA to fall outside of the top 10 and one longer-shot player currently projected outside of the top 25. We’ll take a look at offense this week and pitching next. For the earlier editions in this series, click below:

In the debut edition of this series, the fantasy team looks at players who could outperform their PECOTA projections in batting average.

One of the fun ways we all try to outsmart our opponents in fantasy is by searching for hidden value in players who, for one reason or another, we suspect have the ability to outpace their projections (and, relatedly, their draft cost). Our Darkhorses series features staff picks for players who could very well outpace their PECOTA projections for the year and finish at the top of one of the standard five-by-five categories. We’ve all picked one player currently projected by PECOTA to fall just shy of the top 10 (in the 11 to 25 range) and one longer shot player currently projected outside of the top 25. We’ll take a look at offense this week and pitching next. To kick things off here is a bounty of hidden treasure in the batting average department:

Fantasy Freestyle: Projecting the Top 15

21

Paul Sporer and BP Fantasy Staff

The fantasy crew tries to peg the top 15 picks and predict breakouts from later picks.

We know from Ron Shandler's Baseball Forecaster that since 2004, there is a 36 percent success rate in the ADP projecting the top 15. The most in any one year is seven of 15; the least is four. With that in mind, I challenged the fantasy team to try to guess the top 15. In addition to their stab at the top 15, I had them give their answers on the following:

Bret recaps the selections that he and Mike Gianella made in a mock draft held last week.

Last Tuesday night, Mike Gianella and I participated in the first prominent experts league draft of the season, the LABR (League of Alternative Baseball Reality) mixed league. For background, this is a 15-team snake draft and a standard 5x5 rotisserie format with two catchers and the standard roster designations everywhere else. Mike and I had many conversations about this draft leading up to Tuesday night, and what made this both comforting and easy was that we were very much in sync with our strategy and a lot of our valuations—making for a stress-free (at least between each other) evening.

If you want to see the full draft board for all participants, that is available here. We had the seventh pick in the draft, which had its benefits and its issues. In the first round, we did not think it was optimal, as there was a pretty clear top four and the next 10 picks or so really came down to preference. However, my view is that it’s always beneficial to be in the middle of the round so you don’t have to wait so long between picks in case the draft shifts on you quickly. There were a couple of times at which we may have been out of luck if we were positioned on an end (especially in the early going with starting pitching and the middle rounds with closers), but we used the spot to our advantage.

Graphical Fantasy Rankings: Shortstops

Mauricio Rubio

A visual breakdown of the players at this premium position, based on their projected stats for the 2014 season.

For a primer on this series, click here. (Note: this is based off the PECOTA projections from the annual).

The first thing that popped out to me as I was doing this graph was how well rounded Ian Desmond projects to be. Desmond helps out across all five standard categories while dominating none of them. The other thing that pops out is how there are still usable options through the upper portion of the tier-two rankings, and even a guy like Jonathan Villar has his uses down toward the bottom.

Fantasy Freestyle: A First-Round Starting Pitcher? Maybe

4

Paul Sporer

Most fantasy players prefer to invest their top pick in a star hitter, but this spring, one hurler might tempt those picking outside the top five.

I have always been vehemently against taking starting pitchers in the first round of a fantasy draft. The injury risk associated with pitchers is part of it, but honestly it has always been more because I trust myself to find better pitching later—so in a sense, arrogance. It’s just easier to pluck capable arms later than it is to find the out-of-nowhere bats like Josh Donaldson or Jean Segura. As we creep through the dead of winter and start to trickle into mock draft season, I’m warming to the idea of a first-round starting pitcher, or, more specifically, Clayton Kershaw. There are a handful of quality fantasy aces out there, but Kershaw is clearly a cut above the rest.

The top of the draft is relatively well established. Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout are the unquestioned top pair at this point, with a split camp on which of the two should go first. You can’t really go wrong with either, so having a top-two pick is a prime position this year. The next pair seems to be taking a foothold on the three and four spots in either order, too. Paul Goldschmidt is the easy three for me, but there is a real debate between him and Andrew McCutchen that I would at least listen to before selecting Goldy. Others may have it reversed, but I haven’t been in a mock draft this offseason that didn’t see these four go at the top of the draft.

Rumor Roundup: Re-Upping Ramirez

0

Daniel Rathman

The Dodgers consider an extension for Hanley Ramirez, and Bronson Arroyo awaits an offer.

Dodgers discussing extension with Hanley Ramirez
General manager Ned Colletti has been relatively quiet so far this offseason. Apart from a one-year, $10 million pact with Dan Haren that fortified the rear of manager Don Mattingly’s rotation, fans waiting for a big splash have not gotten it. For now, it appears, the biggest news is likely to come from within.
