Dissecting Contact Quality In Search Of Fantasy Bargains

Bo Bichette Ascends Into Top-Tier Asset Ahead Of 2021

Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette was limited to just 29 regular-season games in 2020 due to a knee injury, but that hasn’t stopped him from pouring on the production and moving himself significantly up draft boards ahead of next season. With 15 extra-base hits and four stolen bases this year, Bichette’s blend of average... Read More

Charlie Blackmon Fades To Finish After Flirting With .400 Average

Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon was the talk of the majors for a stretch during 2020 when his batting average sat above .400 as late into the season as Aug. 23. But after a September in which he slashed just .230/.297/.356, Blackmon finished the year with his lowest OPS (.804) since 2015. As can be... Read More

Eugenio Suarez Has Production Capped By Short Season

Cincinnati Reds third baseman Eugenio Suarez mashed 49 home runs in 2019 and became one of the premier hot-corner fantasy options leading into this season.

Ketel Marte Makes Elite Contact In 2020

Arizona Diamondbacks second baseman Ketel Marte stepped into an elite tier of contact during the 2020 campaign, finishing in the 99th percentile of strikeout rate (10.8%) and 98th percentile of whiff rate (14.1%).

Pete Alonso Heads Into 2021 As Premium Home Run Option

New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso was unable to rekindle the same magic in 2020 that he delivered during his rookie year in 2019, but that didn’t stop him from being a key fantasy contributor.
