  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...

  5. 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...

  6. 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...

  7. 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...

  8. NL Central: 2014 review/2015 preview

    Eric Karabell

    Welcome to November and more baseball talk! Four divisions down, two more to go as we look back at the exciting 2014 season and ahead to what should be an excellent 2015. Check out the NL East, AL East, AL Central, AL West and now it's the NL Central...

  9. My top 20 players for 2015

    Eric Karabell

    Washington Nationals right-hander Jordan Zimmermann ended his 2014 regular season on a significant high note by no-hitting the Miami Marlins Sunday, but it's still not enough to get him into my overall top 20 for next season. This theme has resonated...

  10. Least Valuable Player awards for 2014

    Eric Karabell

    The Texas Rangers, playing better of late but still the worst team in the American League, started seven rookies in Wednesday's 5-1 victory over the Houston Astros. The Rangers have used a record number of players to get through the season, and while...

  11. Early 2015 top 10 pitcher rankings

    Eric Karabell

    I think we all enjoy baseball nights when aces are in action, even though I rarely own aces in the first place. Perhaps that's why I enjoy it, to some degree, not really worrying from pitch to pitch about my teams but just reveling in the glory of a ...

  12. Assessing Braves bats for 2015

    Eric Karabell

    The Atlanta Braves continued their September swoon with a 1-0 home loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday, thanks to an Andrew McCutchen home run, pretty much ensuring more losses than wins for the season. The organization parted ways with general ...

  13. When to draft Kemp, Puig in 2015

    Eric Karabell

    The words likely most associated with the Los Angeles Dodgers outfield early in the season were expensive, crowded and mostly unproductive. However, while the first word remains true, the other two don't fit any longer, as Matt Kemp has been resurgen...

  14. Red Sox full of fantasy value for 2015

    Eric Karabell

    The Rusney Castillo era began for the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, as the 27-year-old Cuban made his big league debut in center field, hitting seventh and delivering an infield single in four at-bats of a 9-1 loss. This was my first look at Castillo, an...

  15. The value of Holliday, Taveras in 2015

    Eric Karabell

    It's going to be interesting to see how much fantasy owners really want St. Louis Cardinals outfielders Matt Holliday and Oscar Taveras for fantasy purposes next season. The two players will likely handle the corner outfield slots for the perennial N...

  16. Giancarlo Stanton's season done?

    Eric Karabell

    Thursday night was an oddly dark one around the major leagues as several players were hit by pitches and forced to leave games, with the biggest name being potential National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton. The excellent Miami Marlins outfielder was st...

  17. Bounce back coming for low-OPS players?

    Eric Karabell

    None of the 152 hitters qualified for the batting title have a lower OPS (on-base percentage plus slugging) than Cincinnati Reds shortstop Zack Cozart, but he wasn't really expected to aid a fantasy team this season. However, several others near the ...
