The Buyer's Guide: Talking yourself into Kevin Pillar

3

Eric Roseberry

He appears to have made adjustments at the plate, but will the effects be long lasting?

Depending on the size of your league, it can be difficult to find productive players to fill each outfield spot. Often, there are one or two spots where you’re left playing someone who’s going to get regular playing time, but ultimately could be a drain in several categories. Owners are always on the lookout for quality outfield options.

This is especially the case if you roster an outfielder who has suffered an injury or has been suspended. Adam Eaton and Starling Marte were starting outfielders who are missing a significant portion of the season (all of it, in Eaton’s case). Beyond that, there are several players currently suffering from injuries who find themselves out of action. This list includes players such as Ryan Braun, Joc Pederson, Denard Span, Mitch Haniger, Yoenis Cespedes, David Dahl and J.D. Martinez.

Fantasy Players to Avoid: Long-Term Outfielders

2

BP Fantasy Staff

Our staff feels these players might be overvalued in dynasty formats this spring.

Manuel Margot, San Diego Padres
In terms of real baseball value, Manuel Margot is one of the more exciting outfield prospects in the game. He’s right on the verge of contributing in a meaningful way, and should do it in most areas of the game. He’ll hit a little, he’ll fly on the bases and his athleticism and defensive instincts will play well in San Diego’s spacious outfield. Unfortunately, much of that skill set doesn’t translate into fantasy value.

Dynasty League Positional Rankings: The Top 125 Outfielders

8

Bret Sayre

I've got my ranking shoes on and I'm ready to go.

We, at Baseball Prospectus, have been talking about outfielders for a while now (seven days and change to be exact, depending on when you are reading this) and the party continues to rage on. Yet before we rage, we shall calibrate—since rankings aren’t useful without knowing what you’re reading. The list you are about to read here presupposes a 16-team standard (read: 5x5 roto) dynasty format, in which there are no contracts/salaries, players can be kept forever, and owners have minor-league farm systems in which to hoard prospects. So feel free to adjust this as necessary for your individual league, whether it’s moving non-elite prospects without 2016 ETAs down if you don’t have separate farm teams or moving lower-risk, lower-reward players up in deeper mixed or -only formats.

Fantasy Players to Avoid: Outfielders

3

BP Fantasy Staff

You might want to let someone else draft or buy these players in your leagues this spring.

Giancarlo Stanton, Miami Marlins
Sometimes I wish that real baseball could be a little more like MLB: The Show, and you could have the option to turn off injuries. In this alternate universe, how many homers would Stanton have had in the last four seasons, 175? 200? At one time Stanton flirted with the top three of fantasy drafts, and you could have talked yourself into taking him at number one if you were feeling frisky (or had a severe fish allergy). Unfortunately, his stock is tumbling, mostly due to injuries depriving him (and us) of being able to suit up for a full season.

The -Only League Landscape: American League Outfielders

0

Mike Gianella

Examining the menu of junior-circuit fantasy options at this position.

This will be the most in-depth article in this series of AL-only positional reviews, and with good reason. With a minimum of 60 American League outfielders populating rosters, and usually more when you factor in the DH slot, outfield is frequently where mono leagues are won or lost. There are only 45 AL starting outfielders, but unlike many other positions you can get solid production from outfield reserves or platoon players.

In 2016, four of the 10 most expensive AL-only hitters were outfielders. Three of the 10 highest earners in 2016 were outfielders. The three fantasy “expert” AL-only leagues (CBS, LABR, and Tout Wars) spent $814 on average in the outfield and picked up $790 worth of stats. This year, there was a significant drop in the CBS AL auction on money spent on outfielders, with only $696 allocated to the position. It is worth watching LABR AL next month to see if this is part of a trend or merely an anomaly.

Fantasy Players to Target: Long-Term Outfielders

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.

Dynasty League Positional Rankings Continued: Outfielders on the Ocean Floor

Wilson Karaman

A deeper dive into the pool of future fantasy contributors at this position.

Bret just up and ranked the top 125 outfielders for dynasty league play, and those will be running at the beginning of next week. To wet your whistle in the meantime, we've got a whole bunch of guys who either didn't make his cut or have a good shot to next year. Before you jump in, a very important disclaimer, given the vast seas ahead of us in this series: there are probably like three dozen other potentially useful players I could’ve justified writing about here, but this column already pushes the boundaries of time, space, and our editorial staff, so eventually I just have to hang up the ol’ digital autopen. Happy to talk about anyone else in the comments. Previous pieces in this series can be found here:

Scooter Hotz

Examining the senior-circuit menu of fantasy options at this position.

You’re going to spend a lot of money in the outfield. Granted, a lot of that is because standard leagues have more outfielders than any other positions. That’s not the only reason, though. The defensive requirements are a little more flexible than they are in the infield, so the player pool is more diverse, including players as different as Billy Hamilton and Kyle Schwarber.

Tale of the Tape: Jose Bautista vs. Michael Brantley

3

Bryan Joiner

Which of these players should you choose for your fantasy outfield in drafts and auctions this spring?

Styles make fights, and Michael Brantley and Jose Bautista play the game in *extremely* different ways, making them a perfect Tale of the Tape matchup. If you were choosing between these guys in a vacuum, would you go with the fragile all-around stud in his prime, or the reliable, almost universally despised aging moonshot specialist? It’s not so easy to pick, but I’m here to help, should you need it.
