  2. 2015 sleepers and busts: Hitters

    Eric Karabell

    Let's be honest, I prefer to use the word value when describing players I like more or less than most in whatever fantasy league we're talking about because the simple terms "sleepers" and "busts" are oft-misinterpreted. For example, look no further ...

  3. Potential 2015 bounce-back candidates

    Eric Karabell

    Many of you would be shocked at how the top 20 in ESPN live drafts looked one year ago. A guy who ended up hitting .196 was actually a first-round pick! A pair of first basemen chosen in the second round combined for nine home runs and 39 RBIs, and o...

  4. Major differences in my preseason rankings

    Eric Karabell

    There was someone who repeatedly showed up in my chat sessions most of last season -- I chat every Wednesday at 11 a.m. ET -- and couldn't stop reminding me how I didn't rank New York Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka as a top-10 option. It's true...

  6. 2015 position eligibility changes

    Eric Karabell

    I cannot recall with precise accuracy where I was when Detroit Tigers slugger Victor Martinez played his 20th game at first base last season, but as a Martinez owner in a keeper league, this was certainly good news. You see, Martinez was eligible in ...

  7. Top 10 fantasy prospects for 2015

    Eric Karabell

    Investing heavily in rookie performers in any fantasy sport is certainly risky, especially in baseball. Consider that many of last season's expected first-year stars were anything but. Sure, Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu -- a rookie pret...

  8. Five closer situations worth watching

    Eric Karabell

    Nothing against the awesome top tier of closers -- Atlanta Braves right-hander Craig Kimbrel, Cincinnati Reds lefty Aroldis Chapman, Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Kenley Jansen and Kansas City Royals right-hander Greg Holland -- but I'm far more i...

  9. Early 2015 top-20 rankings, draft strategy

    Eric Karabell

    The first pick in 2015 fantasy baseball drafts is obvious, and while we can poke holes in the Mike Trout argument if we really want to, it's mostly nitpicking. Sure, the massive increase in strikeouts is concerning, he has little motivation to return...

  11. Can Lester repeat 2014 stats with Cubs?

    Eric Karabell

    For all the success new Chicago Cubs left-hander Jon Lester has achieved in his major league career, he's generally been a bit -- brace yourself, because nobody ever wants to hear or read this word -- overrated from a fantasy aspect, because we deal ...

  12. Hanley, Sandoval gain value in Boston

    Eric Karabell

    The Boston Red Sox went from leading the major leagues in runs scored in 2013 to middle of the pack in 2014, from first place and a World Series championship to last place, so what better way to improve than to sign the top free-agent hitters availab...
