Fantasy Freestyle: Keeper-League Trading: A Primer

0

Mike Gianella

Helping you get the most out of your swaps this summer.

Flags Fly Forever. Hey, that’s the name of the podcast I co-host weekly with Bret Sayre and producer George Bissell. So I know a thing or two about going for it at all costs, decimating my team’s future in pursuit of a title, and sacrificing the potential plum of back-to-back championships in favor of a “certain” win this year. As a rule of thumb, this is sage advice. If you are on the fence about a trade in a keeper or dynasty league because you are worried you are giving up too much value, odds are good that you should make the trade immediately and worry about 2017 and beyond later.

Yet there are cases where you can go too far and sacrifice too much future in exchange for the present. This seems to fly in the face of the advice that every fantasy expert has ever dispensed. But there are cases where it can happen.

Fantasy Three-Year Projections: Starting Pitchers, Part Two: 51-125

15

J.J. Jansons

Rounding out our rotation-arm rankings, based on pitchers' values through the end of the 2018 season.

As was pointed out in previous editions, positional three-year rankings are perhaps most useful for keeper-league owners, but they can serve a number of purposes for dynasty-league owners as well, particularly those who are in (or approaching) contention and not knee-deep in the perpetual rebuild that many owners seem to enjoy. If your contention window is now and you’re wondering who to keep and who to deal, the three-year rankings are for you, as they won’t feature any prospects who are just legally able to vote.

It’s especially important to note that these rankings are decidedly not the consensus rankings of the BP Fantasy Staff; they are the rankings of the selected author.

The cream of the crop on the hill based on their values from now through the end of the 2018 season.

If your contention window is now and you’re wondering who to keep and who to deal, the three-year rankings are for you, as they won’t feature any prospects who are just legally able to vote.

Rounding out our outfield rankings based on anticipated production through the end of the 2018 season.

No need to waste words on an intro. I did that yesterday, along with my ranking of the top 40 outfielders. Let’s ramble our way to the century mark.

41. Kevin Pillar
42. Delino DeShields
43. Ender Inciarte
44. Billy Burns

Fantasy Three-Year Projections: Top 40 Outfielders

1

Greg Wellemeyer

Part one of two stacking up outfielders based on their fantasy value through the end of the 2018 season.

J.J. Jansons and I are taking turns doing the three-year rankings, and with all of the infield positions behind us, it’s time to focus on the grass.

As I’ve said before, these rankings function best as something like a cross between keeper preferences and dynasty rankings for those whose window of contention is open in the immediate future. Crucially, these rankings are mine alone. They no doubt vary from the opinions of other smart evaluators on this site, and that’s okay. Good, even. This wouldn’t be much fun if we all thought the same thing about every player and couldn’t learn from each other in the cases where we diverge.

Fantasy Three-Year Projections: Third Base

22

Greg Wellemeyer

Stacking up the third sackers based on their value between now and the end of the 2018 season.

J.J. Jansons and I are taking turns doing the three-year rankings, and with catchers, first basemen, and second basemen in the rearview it’s time to focus on the hot corner.

These rankings function best as something like a cross between keeper preferences and dynasty rankings for those whose window of contention is open in the immediate future. Crucially, these rankings are mine alone. They no doubt vary from the opinions of other smart evaluators on this site, and that’s okay. Good, even.

J.J. Jansons

Sizing up the position from now through the end of the 2018 season.

As was pointed out in previous editions, positional three-year rankings are perhaps most useful for keeper-league owners, but they can serve a number of purposes for dynasty-league owners as well, particularly those who are in (or approaching) contention and not knee-deep in the perpetual rebuild that many owners seem to enjoy. If your contention window is now and you’re wondering who to keep and who to deal, the three-year rankings are for you, as they won’t feature any prospects who are just legally able to donate blood.

It’s especially important to note that these rankings are decidedly not the consensus rankings of the BP Fantasy Staff; they are the rankings of the selected author.

The Top 50 Fantasy Prospects

31

Bret Sayre

With rookie eligibility as the cutoff, preseason no. 3 Carlos Correa rises to the top.

The middle of the season is a wonderful time to turn the reflection you’ve likely been doing over the last month into action. It’s the time to decide whether you really want to push in to go for it this year, or sell off some pieces for 2016 and beyond. It’s the time to look at the standings and see where you can gain the most points over the last three months.

The best 50 of the rest, based on their expected fantasy value from now through the end of the 2017 season.

41. Kole Calhoun
42. Dalton Pompey
43. Yasmany Tomas
44. Adam Eaton
45. Denard Span
