2011 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: The Top 30 Outfielders

Unlike third base and shortstop this year, outfield is extremely deep. In 2010, the average top-40 fantasy outfielder hit 22 homers, stole 20 base, scored 88 runs, knocked in 82 RBIs and hit .285. This speaks volumes to the depth of the position. While first- and second-round talents such as Braun, Crawford, CarGo, Holliday and Kemp are exciting to own, you’re probably better off filling your infield spots early in the draft. The likes of Alex Rios, Jacoby Ellsbury, Drew Stubbs, Ichiro Suzuki, Andre Ethier, Jay Bruce, Hunter Pence and Nick Markakis can all be drafted much later in the draft, and offer valuable production. Here’s the top 30...

2011 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: The Top 15 Third Basemen

Third base has become surprisingly thin in recent seasons. While the elite players (Wright, Longoria and perhaps even Rodriguez, Youkilis and Zimmerman) offer fantastic production, the rest of the group offers nothing but questions. Kevin Youkilis doesn’t have third base eligibility yet, but he’s worth the wait. After a week or two (depending on what site you play on), he’s the fourth-best player at the position. Expected bounce-back seasons from Aramis Ramirez, Mark Reynolds and Pablo Sandoval could lend some depth to the hot corner by season’s end. An emerging Pedro Alvarez won’t hurt, either...

2011 Fantasy Projections, No. 69: The Only Flaw in Jose Bautista’s 2010 Season

Jose Bautista has been perhaps the most discussed player in fantasy baseball this offseason after blasting 54 HRs in 2010. While he won’t reach the 50-HR plateau in 2011, I believe Bautista will remain fantasy relevant. In fact, his 2010 season wasn’t a complete fluke. It’s difficult to understand just how incredible Bautista’s 2010 season was. His 54 home runs were 17 more than that of Joey Votto, and five more than Albert Pujols’ career high. It was the first 50-HR season since A-Rod and Prince Fielder hit 54 and 50, respectively, in 2007; and was quite possibly one of the few 50-HR campaigns in decades that wasn’t performance-enhanced...

Why a Low BABIP Doesn’t Necessarily Signal a Good Buy-Low Candidate

The term Batting Average on Balls In Play (BABIP) has become one of the most popular stats among fantasy managers in recent years. To put it simply, BABIP measures the number of batted balls that fall safely for a hit (excluding home runs). According to The Hardball Times Glossary, the exact formula for BABIP is: (H-HR)/(AB-K-HR+SF). The major league average for BABIP is usually around .300. Last year it was .299. Through nearly three months this season, its .298...
