Yoenis Cespedes value fantasy outfield

Yoenis Cespedes may be a valuable fantasy outfielder in 2013

Less than one month. That’s all that is left before pitchers and catchers report for Spring Training. Although that may seem like an eternity to those of us who crave baseball, it will be upon us all too quickly. While players finish last minute workouts and clubs continue to fill roster needs, it’s time to start thinking about the 2013 Fantasy Baseball season.

The beginning of every season means a fresh start. It gives struggling players the chance to revitalize their respective careers. The same can be said for fantasy managers who might not have faired so well last year. In January, hope springs eternal. But in order for a better season in 2013, some changes must be made. To do this, we must learn from our mistakes, and perhaps take on a new strategy. Hopefully by learning and growing, we can all take home some hardware come championship time.

Fantasy Baseball 2012: Injured List Predictions for 2nd Half

Sunday, July 15th, 2012

Who thinks they have a great fantasy baseball team…..well, except for the small fact that your star players are busy chilling on the disabled list? There is only one thing worse than getting little production, or less than you expected to get, and that is NO production at all. Players like Matt Kemp, Evan Longoria, and Giancarlo (Mike) Stanton, are players that can carry teams but have spent time, or about to spend time on the DL. There is not much you can do with them either. In seasonal fantasy baseball leagues, they are too valuable to cut, you can’t get fair value in a trade for them, and you obviously can’t play them. This can lead to extreme headaches, frustration, and the sucking of all the fun out of playing fantasy baseball. Hopefully this article will help you determine what is best to do with an injured star and what to expect. If you are lucky enough not to own one of these injured players, this may help you determine if you want to trade for one of these players.

 

Matt Kemp, OF LA Dodgers

Matt Kemp is looking to come back from the DL for a very strong 2nd half

Matt Kemp: Kemp was one of the most dominating players right out of the gate. He has 12 HRs, 28 RBIs to go along with a .355 batting average. Those are not terrible stats to have at the all-star break by the average player, but the remarkable thing is that he did all of this damage in the first month of the season. Lately, it has been nothing but frustration to have Kemp on your fantasy team. (more…)

Fantasy Baseball 2012: 2nd Half Projections for Stat Leaders

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

When drafting a fantasy baseball team, one dreams of having the categorical stat leaders in each stat. It obviously gives you a huge advantage when you ending up having the leaders. That allows you to fill in the rest of your roster to focus on some other category. If you dominate in homeruns and struggle in steals, and you are able to play 2 speed guys instead of one speed and one power guy, it just improves your roster flexibility. As we near the all-star break, are the guys leading the league for real, or should you think of trading them if you think it is just a hot start? (more…)
