Fantasy Freestyle: 2014 Graduated Prospects, Part 2: 26-50

2

Ben Carsley

The second installment in the series looking at the future performance of last year's top promoted prospects.

Last week, I brought you the first installment in this series. This installment follows it, sequentially.

The disclaimer: Let’s take a look at all of the graduated prospects from Bret’s 2014 list, examine how they performed last year and what we can expect moving forward. For each player, I’ll simply render an “overvalued,” “properly valued” or “undervalued” verdict at the end of each writeup, based on current ADP (from FantasyPros.com) and to be used for the 2015 season only.

Five to Watch: AL Post-Prospects

Wilson Karaman

A handful of former blue-chippers still worthy of your attention.

Since we’re deep in the thick of draft season right now I figured I’d use this space to focus solely on those non-sexy no-longer-prospect types who’ve shown some legitimate reasons for intrigue over the past twelve months. In case you’ve missed them, here are our previous articles in this series:

Five to Watch: NL Post-Prospects

J.P. Breen

Examining a handful of senior-circuit youngsters whose initial shine has worn off.

Fantasy analysts often focus on post-hype players—guys like Brett Lawrie, who entered the league as future stars, but haven’t yet lived up to their potential. Post-prospects are the young players who no longer have rookie status and who were never highly hyped prospects. Players who may have been top-10 prospects in their respective orgs, but were never seen as program-changers like post-hype prospects.

We’re focusing on the National League today. Here are five post-prospects to watch as we cruise into fantasy draft season:

Five to Watch: American League Post-Prospects

Ben Carsley

These young players have exhausted their rookie eligibility, but they retain plenty of fantasy intrigue.

As a fantasy player, prospect junkie, and wannabe scout, nothing appeals to me more than evaluating young MLB talent and seeing how players’ skills translate into big-league results. This most often comes in the form of prospect evaluation, as we're always clamoring to find the next best thing, and to find that ultimate fantasy prospect whose flaws have not yet been exposed to the world.

Yet now that I've been doing this for a while, I find that it's often post-prospects—players who've recently lost their rookie eligibility—who yield the greatest rewards in fantasy leagues. Once a player struggles or is simply mortal in the majors, he tends to fall off of fantasy radars as we collectively look to the next best things. This is a mistake, and it ignores standard developmental curves, which is why post-prospects are such a great source of surplus fantasy value year after year.
