Fantasy Players to Target: Long-Term Outfielders

4

BP Fantasy Staff

Identifying players at this position who could be fine investments in keeper and dynasty formats.

Michael Conforto, New York Mets
The 2016 season started about as good as a season could start for Conforto. Through the first month, he was hitting .365/.442/.676 with a .311 ISO. He was ready to take the crown as the next “guy” in New York. The 2016 season ended about as badly as a season could end for Conforto.

Fantasy Three-Year Projections: Third Base

4

Greg Wellemeyer

Ranking the third-sackers based on their expected fantasy value through the end of the 2019 seaosn.

With catchers, first baseman, and second basemen out of the way it’s time to rank the hot corner. If you read either of the first three installments or you’re familiar with this exercise from years past, you know that 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. It’s important to state that these rankings are mine alone. They no doubt vary from the opinions of other writers 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.

Since I know you’re going to ask, allow me to pre-empt the comments: Machado would rank third, Javy Baez comes in at 16, I’ve got JaCoby Jones at 58, Charlie Nyce at 69, and Colin Moran finally off my board.

The Quinton: Keeper-League Trades and Faux Redundancy

1

Jeff Quinton

Jeff explains what to look for when scanning leaguemates' roster in search of offseason trade opportunities in keeper leagues.

I don’t have anything to say specifically regarding third base, so I wanted to use this week’s article to discuss a subject we have not yet touched this year in this column: pre-draft and pre-auction trades in keeper leagues.

In theory, we should see two types of trades: the at-different-points-of-the-contention-cycle trade and the challenge trade. The first happens when teams value players differently because of their difference in distance from competing for a championship. A team, for example, competing for a championship this year might find great value in Victor Martinez, whereas a team that will not be competing for a championship the next two years will have no value for Martinez other than what he can return via trade. Meanwhile, a challenge trade happens when two teams just value players differently. Because of our old friends the endowment effect and defensive decision-making, these trades rarely happen.

Greg Wellemeyer

Stacking up players at this position based on their projected fantasy values through the end of the 2019 season.

Last week, we ranked catchers for the next three years and this week we’re on to first base. If you read last week or you’re familiar with this exercise from years past, you know that 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. It’s important to state that these rankings are mine alone. They no doubt vary from the opinions of other writers on this site and that’s okay. Good, even.

Stacking up the backstops based on their anticipated fantasy production through the end of the 2019 season.

If you were here last year, you already know that 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. If you weren’t, well, now you know.

These rankings are mine alone. They no doubt vary from the opinions of other writers 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 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.
