Fantasy Infographic: Outfield

12

Mauricio Rubio

A visual breakdown of the position by players' projected statistical contributions.

Primer

Notes
The outfield is pretty fun, as it has a thick variety and the bottom doesn’t completely open up and reveal a black void that sucks happiness and joy—looking at you, catchers. For example, check out the big graph on Steven Souza!

Ben Carsley

The Ranger might be the better draft-day bargain, but is he the better overall fantasy asset?

Esteemed, handsome colleague J.P. Breen rolled out the first installment of our 2015 outfielder rankings today. I direct your attention to the third tier, in which Yoenis Cespedes and Shin-Soo Choo are ranked at 28 and 29, respectively. I have now dutifully set the stage for the basis of the comparison that follows.

They Hold No Quarter: Outfielders

2

BP Fantasy Staff

These players aren't widely owned, but they might be useful fliers for keeper-league owners looking ahead to 2015.

If there’s anything we love more than baseball around here on the fantasy staff, it’s collaborating with each other. So, at the behest of myself, we’re going to be doing one final group series of the year to close out the last seven weeks of the season. For this series, we will each select one player who is below 25 percent owned in either ESPN or Yahoo! leagues who could be someone to consider grabbing before the end of the season with an eye towards a keeper spot. Now, given the depth we’re dealing with here, these recommendations are not for owners who can keep five or seven players from season-to-season—it’s more for those of you who play in leagues where keepers take up more than half of your roster (and possibly more, in the case of some recommendations contained within). —Bret

Oswaldo Arcia, Minnesota Twins
“Arcia’s slash line doesn’t look pretty, but it belies two important factors: (1) He owns a .249/.324/.520 slash line against righties with a .271 ISO, and (2) only three hitters have connected with as many home runs as Arcia, 13, in the second half of the season. Furthermore, to illustrate his legit power, his average batted-ball distance ranks 50th in baseball. He has limitations to his overall profile, but if you’re a fantasy owner who can utilize the platoon advantage, he’s a great source for power. Also, I’m not convinced he’s useless against lefties. He just hasn’t shown it to this point and needs to develop that part of his game. I was huge on Arcia coming into the 2014 season. That will continue heading into the 2015 campaign.” —J.P. Breen

Fantasy Freestyle: Two Deep-League Lessons From the Preseason

22

Ben Carsley

With several deep-league drafts under his belt, Ben shares a couple of the things he's learned so far this spring.

Ah, deep leagues. They test your knowledge and patience, your ability to follow a draft strategy and your sanity, as injuries always tend to ebb away at the weakest spot of your rosters. As 18- and 20-team leagues continue to become more popular, it's worth looking at some unique strategies that don't apply to shallower leagues, but can give you a decided advantage when you're in a league that goes 500-800 players deep.

I'm lucky/stupid enough to participate in several uber-deep leagues of both the redraft and keeper variety, and the more I play in said leagues, the more I grow to appreciate them over their shallower counterparts. The deeper the rosters go the more knowledge is required to succeed and the more victory has to do with skill and not luck.
