Fantasy Freestyle: The Other Guys, Part One: American League

10

Mike Gianella

These players might not be the center of your fantasy attention, but some could have sneaky keeper value in AL-only leagues.

Last year, I introduced a piece I called “The Other Guys.” It received such a positive response that I decided to bring it back again this year.

In fantasy baseball, and particularly in keeper leagues, analysts typically take a look at the hot prospects down on the farm who are getting called up for the first time in September. This is useful from a knowledge perspective, but from a decision making standpoint often isn’t very helpful. Mookie Betts is a keep at $10 next year if he makes the Red Sox out of camp; even if he’s on the bench, it’s likely he’ll be kept for the anticipated rewards down the road.

What kind of impact can September call-ups have on your fantasy team, and who figures to make the biggest splash in 2011?

We are less than a week away from the most/least exciting day of the fantasy baseball season—roster expansion. On that magical day of September 1, Major League Baseball teams can expand their active roster by up to 15 players, giving chances to rookies and career minor leaguers to showcase their skills and audition for a spot on someone’s 2012 roster.  It also gives teams a chance to rest their everyday players as they put their roster into cruise control in order to rest up for a grueling post-season.

Fantasy Focus: NL Call-Ups

Randy Hale

Roster expansion is just a day away, and presents opportunities for both teams playing out the string in keeper leagues and those in a dogfight for a title.
