  1. Early 2015 top-20 rankings, draft strategy

    Eric Karabell

    Eric Karabell

    When I spoke to Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Brantley at the All-Star festivities in Minneapolis and asked him about his shocking statistical season, he made it seem like it was no big deal at all -- just a maturing player becoming smarter wi...

  4. Who's on pace for 20/20 seasons?

    Eric Karabell

    It's not easy as it used to be to finish a baseball season with more than 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases. Nine players achieved the feat last season, 10 the year before and 12 in 2011. Basically, the trend of five-category fantasy options continues...

  5. Results differ as Hamilton, Trout return

    Eric Karabell

    A pair of Los Angeles Angels outfielders returned from injury to the lineup Tuesday in Houston, but only one of them lasted the entire game, and it's not the one who was selected first -- or second, in theory, I suppose -- in nearly every fantasy dra...

    Eric Karabell

    It's been two weeks since Oakland Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes delivered an impressive, winning show at the Home Run Derby at Citi Field, and finally he's hit a blast in a game that counts. More are forthcoming. Is it a Derby jinx or just one...

    Eric Karabell

  15. 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...
