Fantasy Team Preview: Kansas City Royals

2

Craig Goldstein and Paul Sporer

Newcomer Jason Vargas is just "a guy" in fantasy leagues, but the Royals boast several returning players who are worthy of your attention.

One of the songs of summer, if not the song of summer was Daft Punk’s Get Lucky. The electronic music duo’s smash hit also serves as the overriding factor of what determines fantasy champions over the course of a grueling baseball season. Call it chance, call it fortune, call it what you want to call it (wait, that’s a different song), luck is unavoidable. Either good or bad rolls of the dice affect all of us as we try to navigate our way through the labyrinth that is living vicariously through the accomplishment of others. But, as summer gave way to fall and fantasy playoffs ended, Get Lucky has given way to another pop hit… Royals by Lorde.

And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule / Let me live that fantasy.

Resident Fantasy Genius: Keep Calm and Carry On

4

Derek Carty

Don't panic if one bad start has ruined your value pick's ERA.

Last Thursday, I decided to have a little fun with small sample sizes, checking out the success (or lack thereof) of my value picks from my preseason Fantasy Tier Rankings.  While I looked at the hitters on Thursday, today we’ll move on and inspect the starting pitchers.

As I did last time, I’m going to ignore the Four- and Five-Star Value Picks because, well, most of them weren’t really values.  Everyone knows that Clayton Kershaw is a good player, so I’m not going to bother going over him.  Instead, I’ll focus on the one-, two-, and three-star guys that you likely acquired on the cheap.  These are going to be the money-makers of a fantasy team, the guys that you’re hoping to make big profits on.
