  2. How to value deGrom for now, 2015

    Eric Karabell

    It's certainly possible that Cincinnati Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton will be given the NL Rookie of the Year award for his flashy contributions in stolen bases, but New York Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom really should be earning more attention. Fa...

  3. Call-ups with potential fantasy value

    Eric Karabell

    The first day of September doesn't merely highlight the opening of the final month of regular-season baseball, but it's time for an influx of young players to join the league as rosters expand. The top teams will promote prospects but probably not pl...

  4. Non-closer RPs to consider adding

    Eric Karabell

    Saves aren't everything. Sure, the most popular relief pitchers in fantasy leagues are the ones who pitch the ninth inning with small leads for that very statistic, but as we approach September, it's time for many fantasy owners to take another look ...

  5. Pleasant surprises among top relievers

    Eric Karabell

    Let's talk closers! With roughly a third of the MLB season complete and much upheaval in terms of injuries and torn UCLs and hitters performing below expectations, it's actually been a relatively quiet season so far for closers. After all, of the top...

  6. Brewers winning, but is offense legit?

    Eric Karabell

    Give the Milwaukee Brewers credit for having the most wins in the major leagues, yet they are in the middle of the pack in runs scored and the lineup hardly seems formidable. Can it last? Well, there are some lineup changes ahead with this team, so l...

  7. The 'Perfect' Draft: Think balance early

    Eric Karabell

    Between myriad mock drafts, a few random and planned explorations into the mock draft lobby, and a few real ones that will be played out, I'm already well into double digits in ESPN leagues for March alone. While I've felt differing degrees of satisf...

  8. Fernandez wraps up impressive season

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners really could not have asked for much more of Miami Marlins right-hander Jose Fernandez this year. The Cuban import surprisingly made the Marlins out of spring training at age 20, became a popular fantasy free-agent pickup immediately, ...

  9. Second-half rankings reactions: Pitchers

    Eric Karabell

    It didn't take my Twitter followers long to realize that I had ranked pitchers in the ESPN Fantasy midseason rankings a bit lower than my colleagues. Yes, that's by design. My list of those making their living throwing the baseball started with Los A...

  10. Can Marlon Byrd's power surge continue?

    Eric Karabell

    I spent a reserve bench pick on New York Mets outfielder Marlon Byrd in the LABR NL-only auction the first weekend of March, hoping the guy would just make the team. After all, the goal late in a one-league format is often to simply find playing time...

    Eric Karabell

    Wow, Tuesday was a big day for the New York Mets. After all, how else can one describe the emotion that comes with trading for outfielder Eric Young Jr.? [+] Enlarge Scott Cunningham/Getty Images Zack Wheeler pitched six shutout innings against t...

  13. Projecting SP wins: My updated top 10

    Eric Karabell

    Unlike home runs and stolen bases and most offensive statistics, for that matter, pitcher wins are not a good gauge of a player's true ability. They just aren't. We could compare myriad sets of pitchers in this space with similar statistics in ERA, W...

  14. Realistic expectations for Matt Kemp

    Eric Karabell

    Rumors that Los Angeles Dodgers skipper Don Mattingly could be out of work soon make little sense, since he's not the one who built his flawed yet expensive team, rife with injuries, poor play and a lack of depth. On Monday night in Milwaukee, the Do...

  15. Bits: Price, Dickey show improvement

    Eric Karabell

    The defending Cy Young award winners faced off Thursday night, each struggling with ERAs on the wrong side of 5 and scaring fantasy owners quite a bit for a variety of reasons. But while neither Toronto Blue Jays right-hander R.A. Dickey nor Tampa Ba...

    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...
