  2. 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...

  3. 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...

  4. Fantasy value of Orioles, Nationals players

    Eric Karabell

    Congrats to the first two teams to secure MLB playoff berths, as the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals, their stadiums separated by less than hour of drive time, won their respective East divisions Tuesday night. The Orioles received five pa...

  5. 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...

  6. 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...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Will Wright, Pedroia ever be top-50 again?

    Eric Karabell

    It seems a bit outrageous now, but a few seasons ago New York Mets third baseman David Wright and Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia were regarded as late first-round picks in fantasy drafts, deliverers of five-category goodness and viewed ...

  9. Michael Cuddyer homers in return

    Eric Karabell

    No player has a higher batting average with more than 600 at-bats since the start of the 2013 season than Colorado Rockies outfielder/first baseman Michael Cuddyer -- you can look it up! -- so fantasy owners certainly welcomed his return from the dis...

  10. 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...

  11. Add Yadier Molina now

    Eric Karabell

    The St. Louis Cardinals had to be hoping that when superb catcher Yadier Molina was lost for a few months with a thumb injury, they could merely remain within striking distance of the NL Central lead. Mission accomplished there. The Cardinals are NL ...

  12. 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 ...

  13. Options for Sean Doolittle owners

    Eric Karabell

    A near-top 10 closer for the season on the ESPN Fantasy Player Rater hit the disabled list Sunday with an intercostal strain in his side, opening up an opportunity for saves in the Oakland Athletics bullpen. Yes, lefty Sean Doolittle has done quite a...

  14. What to do if you own Garrett Richards

    Eric Karabell

    A wonderful Wednesday night of baseball -- both at the big league level and for the teens and tweens in Williamsport, Pennsylvania -- was a bit overshadowed by the knee injury suffered by Los Angeles Angels right-hander Garrett Richards at Fenway Par...

  15. How to value the Rockies for 2015

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners are probably getting tired of the top Colorado Rockies players, especially slumping star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, who -- while you were all participating in fantasy football mock drafts this weekend -- was again placed on the disabl...

  16. Add Billy Burns right now

    Eric Karabell

    The best team in baseball promoted one of the best base stealers in the minor leagues Monday, and I, for one, couldn't be more pleased! I remember watching the ridiculously speedy Billy Burns back in March while at spring training in Arizona, and ins...

  17. Why Josh Harrison is worth considering

    Eric Karabell

    A few weeks ago, Pittsburgh Pirates utility player Josh Harrison was one of the rare hitters chosen as an All-Star that fantasy owners could still find in free agency in many leagues. Harrison remains available in roughly half of ESPN's standard leag...
