Fantasy Freestyle: Projecting the Top 15

21

Paul Sporer and BP Fantasy Staff

The fantasy crew tries to peg the top 15 picks and predict breakouts from later picks.

We know from Ron Shandler's Baseball Forecaster that since 2004, there is a 36 percent success rate in the ADP projecting the top 15. The most in any one year is seven of 15; the least is four. With that in mind, I challenged the fantasy team to try to guess the top 15. In addition to their stab at the top 15, I had them give their answers on the following:

Fantasy Team Discussion

11

BP Fantasy Staff

A look inside the email conversation between our fantasy writers and how it influenced the shortstop tiers also published today.

Before rankings are submitted for your consumption, the Baseball Prospectus fantasy team engages in an in-depth evaluation process debating the merits of the list an author submits. Shortstop is an especially interesting position because of its mix of player types, so our discussion of the shortstop tier rankings led to a fun exchange of ideas that we present to you here.

Graphical Fantasy Rankings: Shortstops

Mauricio Rubio

A visual breakdown of the players at this premium position, based on their projected stats for the 2014 season.

For a primer on this series, click here. (Note: this is based off the PECOTA projections from the annual).

The first thing that popped out to me as I was doing this graph was how well rounded Ian Desmond projects to be. Desmond helps out across all five standard categories while dominating none of them. The other thing that pops out is how there are still usable options through the upper portion of the tier-two rankings, and even a guy like Jonathan Villar has his uses down toward the bottom.

State of the Position: Shortstops

This position has a reputation for being light on fantasy options, but that's not the case now—and it might not be the case in the near future.

Fantasy Team Preview: Colorado Rockies

15

Ben Carsley

Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez stand out, but Coors Field can breathe fantasy life into just about anyone's bat.

The Colorado Rockies finished with a 74-88 record in 2013, good for last place in the National League West and tied for the fourth-worst record in the National League, and they didn’t add much talent this offseason. Despite the renowned 1-2 punch of Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez, it’s not unreasonable to take a cursory look at this organization, shake your head, and move on.

That said, Coors Field plays havoc with value in the fantasy world. Average pitchers become players to avoid. Average hitters become players to target. And anyone with even modest power becomes an automatic add on watch lists in just about every league.

The disabled list claims a couple more All-Stars.

The Rockies use one word to describe Jamie Moyer's return to the major leagues, and a conversation with Mike Matheny.

Jim Tracy is a man of many words. The Rockies manager can wax poetic about many of his players, both past and present, and is more than willing to give long and thoughtful answers to all baseball-related questions. However, when it comes to describing his number-two starter, Tracy keeps coming back to one word.
