Finding Value: Jesse Winker | OF | CIN

Getty Images I’m a big believer in finding value wherever you can in fantasy baseball. Often times that value lies in players who are coming off a horrific previous season or injury, or it’s a prospect that may or may not see significant playing time in the majors. Two great examples of this are Nick Markakis and Derek Holland. Both players are being vastly undervalued, in my...
