Top Ten Middle Relievers Who Could Be Closers in 2013

Closer is an important spot on any fantasy baseball roster, but you should avoid spending too much on draft day, because as many as a third of Opening Day closers are replaced by the end of each season. RotoBaller says to keep an eye on the setup men that sit behind some of the shakier... Read More

RotoBaller.com Rankings: 2013 Outfield Rankings with ADP Comparison

Outfield is a slightly deceptive position in fantasy baseball, and that may be even more true this year than in years past. Each year, there are lots of real studs at the top, and lots of really solid players on the middle. Naturally, my first reaction was that I can wait to draft a top... Read More

Digging Deeper into Second Base - 2013 Fantasy Baseball 2B Rankings

If you haven’t checked out the RotoBaller 2013 Second Base Rankings with ADP Comparison, you need to. Second base provides the epitome of all “tier breakdowns” as you can see on the website. The separation between tiers is rather drastic and the rankings are a must-use tool for your draft preparation! 1. Robinson Cano –... Read More

Fantasy Baseball Draft Prep: Josh Hamilton

Josh Hamilton had a career season in 2012-- a .285 average 43 HR, 128 RBI, 103 R and 7 SB-- that no one seems to be talking about. Instead, there is a lot of focus on his second-half swoon and his sour departure from Texas. Fact check: his second half was a drop-off, but not... Read More

Jose Altuve

Fantasy Baseball Draft Prep: Jose Altuve

Jose Altuve is coming off a solid first full season that saw him bat .290 with 80 R and 33 SB. Those are very solid numbers for a 22-year-old player who had just 221 AB before the start of 2012, especially in the pitiful Houston Astros lineup, and we saw that Altuve is a very... Read More

Chase Utley

Fantasy Baseball Draft Prep: Chase Utley

  It wasn’t long ago that we all loved Chase Utley. After all, what wasn’t to like? The guy was a lockdown early-round pick year-in and year-out. But that was then, and this is now. Chase Utley hasn’t been an impact fantasy player since 2009, and in the past three seasons he’s missed 47, 59... Read More

Fantasy Baseball Draft Prep: Jason Kipnis

  Jason Kipnis is entering 2013 as a trendy pick thanks to the overall solid stat line he contributed in his 2012 breakout campaign. His 76 RBI placed him fifth among all 2Bs, and his 31 SB were topped at the position only by Jose Altuve. He finished the first half with All-Star caliber numbers:... Read More

Starlin Castro

Fantasy Baseball Draft Prep: Starlin Castro

  Starlin Castro is a very good and very consistent ballplayer. He’s not a "great" ballplayer, at least not yet, and he probably won't make the jump in 2013. Several years ago he came into the league with too much hype, and too many people expected him to put up numbers similar to the late-1990s... Read More

RotoBaller.com Rankings: 2013 Shortstop Rankings with ADP Comparison

Shortstop. Ah yes, good 'ole Shortstop. Has to be one of the least fun positions in all of fantasy baseball. Year-in and year-out, the only thing you can count on out of your SS, with few exceptions, is consistent across-the-board yawn-inducing stats. After you get past the first nine or ten, the options always start... Read More

Digging Deeper into First Base – 2013 Fantasy Baseball 1B Rankings

  1B is another position where you need to make decisions early on, especially if you are drafting late first round in the range where you’ll have to decide between Pujols, Votto and Fielder. Regardless of where you draft, you need to prepare for this position. And if you prefer to take a late-round flier... Read More

Fantasy Baseball Draft Prep: Todd Frazier

  Todd Frazier will most likely be one of the last guys on your roster. In a 12-team league, there are twelve better options, so you don’t necessarily want to target him as your starting 3B.

Digging Deeper into Third Base - 2013 Fantasy Baseball 3B Rankings

  3B is always one of the tougher positions to lock down, especially when you wait around on draft day. If your league has a CI position, it’s always good to lock up 3B early and do yourself a favor by taking a second 3B as well-- it’s a solid backup plan, and it can... Read More
