Fantasy Players to Target: Outfielders

5

BP Fantasy Staff

Our staff identifies potential value plays at this position in drafts and auctions this spring.

Billy Hamilton, Cincinnati Reds

Some of you already had your eyes on Hamilton as a source of stolen bases this season. However, there are reasons to believe he could produce at a higher level in several categories in 2017. Hamilton’s end-of-season stats weren’t eye popping, but his monthly splits give a few reasons for optimism.

Early ADP Analysis: Outfielders

1

Matt Collins

A look at where players at this position have been selected in the early batch of drafts this spring.

We have reached the outfield section of our fantasy positional series, which means we’ll be looking at the deepest and most robust section of any fantasy roster. In this post, as always, we’ll be looking at the early ADP Analysis from early NFBC drafts and looking at the biggest movers compared to their standing in last year’s column. Once again, the average round is based on a 15-team draft. Without further ado, let’s get to the players.

Updating the Tiers: Outfielders

Bret Sayre

Bryce Harper is inching closer, but Mike Trout retains the top spot as we take another look at the pasture-minders.

Welcome, to Baseball Prospectus’ first (or at least first time in a long time) in-season rankings update to our preseason positional tiers article. As we did during the preseason, players at each position will be divided into five tiers, represented by a “star” rating. In addition, unlike with the preseason “star” ratings, these lists can also be viewed as a straight ranking.

Fantasy Players to Avoid: Outfielders

10

BP Fantasy Staff

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

With so many bargains out there in the outfield on Draft Day, you don’t want to get stuck with a lemon. Here are some outfielders to avoid in your fantasy drafts or auctions, as selected by our fantasy staff at Baseball Prospectus.

Rusney Castillo, Red Sox
I get wanting to gamble on Castillo. He has the natural speed and power to serve as a 15-homer, 20-steal threat, and he plays in a great home ballpark as part of a good lineup. It’s all there for Castillo... except it’s really not. The 28-year-old has killed more worms in 329 professional PA than millions of allegorical early birds combined, generating a not-so-nice 63.9 GB% in his stateside career. Castillo can’t hit righties (.189 TAv), is a TOOTBLAN waiting to happen every time he reaches base (4 SB, 5 CS in 2015), and walked at just a 4.5 percent clip last year. He deserves a longer leash than most players his age thanks to his unique circumstances, but there are no real signs pointing to a breakout other than solid but unspectacular Triple-A numbers. Castillo is currently the no. 65 outfielder drafted according to FantasyPros.com ADP, going before Kevin Kiermaier, Denard Span, and Marcell Ozuna, among others. Do better, mock drafters. There is some upside here because of the tools, but Castillo’s floor is probably lower than you think. —Ben Carsley

Tale of the Tape, Dynasty Edition: Gregory Polanco vs. Christian Yelich

J.J. Jansons

Which of these young'uns is the better bet to solidify your fantasy outfield for the long haul?

Just as Greg Wellemeyer did in looking at two catcher prospects, second basemen, and shortstops, I'm back to offer an in-depth look at a pair of outfielders as a companion to Bret Sayre's dynasty-focused look at the position, in the same format as I did in looking at our first-base matchup of Trey Mancini vs. Bobby Bradley and our third-base matchup of Rafael Devers vs. Ryan McMahon. We hope that you're enjoying the series, as it's aimed at helping dynasty league owners in the decision making process that quite often occurs when trying to differentiate between two players, whether it be during draft time or trade talks.

Today, we take a look at two outfielders, both entering their age-24 seasons, who feature prominently in Bret's Dynasty League Rankings and have yet to fulfill the monster expectations of dynasty owners to this point in their brief major league duty, particularly in the power department.

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

The -Only League Landscape: National League Outfielders, Part One

Scooter Hotz

The first in a two-part series examining the senior-circuit outfield menu for 2016.

The –Only League Landscape for National League outfielders will be split into two parts. This is the first of the two. In this article, I will focus on the deeper end of the pool: the expensive players, the reliable double-digit earners, and the potential values among the well-known players. In Part 2, which will be published tomorrow, I will focus on the less-expensive players, the players to target in the endgame, and the prospects who could make an impact this year.
