2015 Fantasy Dynasty Starting Pitcher Rankings

Right now starting pitcher is the deepest position there is in dynasty leagues. I always stress drafting hitters, especially power hitters, before taking any pitcher just because of how many pitcherss come out of nowhere to provide huge value every season. In 2014 we had Dallas Keuchel, Collin McHugh, Matt Shoemaker, Garrett Richards, and, most of all, Corey Kluber all take huge...

Andrew Heaney, 2015 Fantasy Outlook

4.26 ERA in 107 2/3 IP his rookie year. Who's that, you ask with your super-cute, Joey Lauren Adams mousey voice. That's Clayton Kershaw's numbers when he was first called up. Like when you feed your dog, then hold his ass over the balcony, rookie pitchers are a crapshoot. There's no discernible rhyme or reason what any of them will do in their first year. Trevor...

2015 Fantasy Dynasty Outfield Rankings

Outfield has been the most challenging position to fill for me in my dynasty league because of the fact that it’s easy to find someone who’s average to above average but rare to find someone exceptional. Most teams in my league carry more than four outfielders so we’re looking at a minimum of 64 outfielders owned with the true count probably around 80-plus. This position is...

Dylan Bundy, 2015 Fantasy Outlook

Here's what I said almost two years ago, "Dylan Bundy’s A-Ball numbers were insane. He was too good for A-Ball. A-Ball called a press conference and said, “You’re embarrassing us. Please leave” In 30 innings, he had 40 Ks and 2 walks. Only giving up 5 hits and zero earned runs. High-A wasn’t quite as bonkers, but wasn’t far off — 57 IP, 66 Ks and 18 walks...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Disappointments– Shortstops

Jean SeguraSource: Mike McGinnis/Getty Images North America As we continue the disappointment train, we find ourselves with the exact opposite problem as we had with the third basemen. It isn’t that we didn’t have shortstops that sucked. It’s that a majority of them were expected to suck, so it is hard to pinpoint the ones that disappointed. In point of fact, at least one of...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Disappointments — Third Basemen

David WrightSource: Jamie Sabau/Getty Images North America Discussing disappointments at third base could take awhile. There is no position on the diamond that was more underwhelming than third base. It certainly starts with the three names we will look at today, but it isn’t limited to those names. Others may have been more mildly disappointing. Then there is the shadow that was...

Maikel Franco, 2015 Fantasy Outlook

Well, Cody Asche's opportunity to sneak in and have a surprisingly solid season in 2014 before Maikel Franco emerged went swimmingly. If we're judging swimmingly on a scale established by Natalie Wood getting swimming lessons from Robert Wagner. Too harsh? How about as swimmingly as Whitney Houston in a bathtub? That's just terrible, why would you force me to give...

2015 Fantasy Dynasty Shortstop Rankings

As rough as second base is offensively, shortstop might be even worse. The top options at the position are still relatively sexy, but they all come with their own drawbacks. After the top five you get into players with low upside or prospects that haven’t yet played in any meaningful games. As dynasty owners we get to witness players grow and mature while he follow them, sometimes...

Kris Bryant, 2015 Fantasy Outlook

Okay, so I'm basically going to have to do a post for every Cubs prospect. They have me prospiqued. I've been knocked on the head and no one can find any smelling salts, so they're holding Cubs prospects under my nose. A Nubian genie is offering me three wishes and I'm taking three Cubs prospects. I already gave you my Jorge Soler fantasy. Today, it's Kris...

Joc Pederson, 2015 Fantasy Outlook

The other day I said that Jorge Soler was going to be your top rookie in 2015 fantasy baseball. Big words from a little man. At least I am a man, and not just an italicized voice. Joc Pederson would've been the top rookie if I saw the Dodgers committed to him out of spring training. There's still time for that to happen. Like trading Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford for...

2015 Fantasy Dynasty Third Base Rankings

If you own one of the top 15 guys on this list as your dynasty league third baseman, then you have to be feeling pretty good about the position, or at least that it isn’t a huge hole on your team. Third base is very deep at the top and the prospects at the position are among the most dynamic power threats in the game. We saw a lot of breakouts in 2014 including Anthony Rendon...

2015 Fantasy Dynasty Second Base Rankings

Second base is one of the least exciting positions on the diamond right now for fantasy players. If you don’t own one of the top two guys at the position, then you own a player who fits one of two molds: High upside and consistency issues, or worse, Someone boring with very little upside The good news is that if you’re in a dynasty league, you never have to wait to long for the...

Playing for Keeps: Wil Myers

The Royals are in the World Series, and it's going to be mentioned at some point that the organization moved a big prospect in Wil Myers to acquire two of the pieces that brought them so much success this year. Last season, it looked like the Rays were going to be the ones that ran away with the trade. Myers won Rookie of the Year. He hit .293/.354/.478 with 13 homers and drove...
