  1. Neil Walker continues powerful start

    Eric Karabell

    Big league second basemen don't generally contend for home run titles, and when one comes along with enticing power, fantasy owners tend to gravitate toward that player. Last season, for example, 26 hitters managed to reach 26 or more home runs, and ...

  2. Colabello a shrewd daily league pickup

    Eric Karabell

    The story of Minnesota Twins first baseman/outfielder Chris Colabello is actually kind of interesting, one I followed during the past year due to my investment in one of my deep teams. The Massachusetts native played for most of his 20s in the indepe...

  3. Chris Davis fantasy MVP among hitters

    Eric Karabell

    Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis and his sore right foot got the day off Thursday against Toronto Blue Jays left-hander Mark Buehrle, but fantasy owners can't complain about a season's worth of surprising production. Davis, a 15th-round ch...

  4. Don't dismiss Adam Dunn, Dan Uggla

    Eric Karabell

    Relying on batting average drains such as Chicago White Sox first baseman Adam Dunn and Atlanta Braves second baseman Dan Uggla can be painful for any fantasy owner, but when they're hitting for power -- like they were Monday night -- they can still ...

  5. Moreland no longer Rangers' 'weak link'

    Eric Karabell

    A month ago, the focus on Texas Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland was on how he was the weak link in a strong lineup and should be replaced in the lineup by hotshot prospect Jurickson Profar. Ian Kinsler would slide from second base to first base ...

    Eric Karabell

    Washington Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche is a steal of a 15th-round choice in ESPN average live drafts, but he started the season hitless in 13 at-bats, then missed a few games because of back stiffness, and that apparently was enough for a ha...

  8. Sleeper Tour: Konerko a potential steal

    Eric Karabell

    GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Baseball analysts seem awfully fond of pointing out when an older player coming off tough times ages another year, often issuing the clever phrase, "Well, he's not getting any younger!" Not to point out the obvious, but young ...

  10. Players I like more than most

    Eric Karabell

    Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper forced his way into my overall top 20, and I've confidently penciled him in as National League MVP for 2013. It's safe to say I like him a bit more than most do, whether for fantasy baseball or o...

  12. Top 100 for 2013: Mike Trout No. 1

    Eric Karabell

    As the saying goes, fantasy drafts aren't necessarily won in the first round -- or early rounds, for that matter -- but they can be lost. I don't buy that notion anymore. All the picks count, and team depth is critical, but many owners who...

  14. Spring storylines to track

    Eric Karabell

    Wise fantasy baseball owners know that spring training statistics usually don't tell us a whole lot, as those surprising Jake Fox performances usually don't lead to much regular-season success. But there's still plenty to watch. It&#03...

    Eric Karabell

    The list of players whose 2013 fantasy draft stock will look a whole lot different from a year ago is long, but in many cases way too reactionary. With San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence, a player I felt had been a bit overrated for fantasy...
