Catcher Tiers

Catcher Tiers

Catcher is the least flashy and productive of the offensive positions. ADP reports suggest a few eager owners will likely reach and spend a fourth to sixth round to secure one of the top two players. The fantasy pundits will tell you to wait and find value later in your draft or auction. Whatever your […]

Relief Pitcher Tiers

Relief Pitcher Tiers

You can’t win your fantasy league with a strong bullpen alone, but you can absolutely lose it with an awful one. Getting this position wrong means watching your ERA and WHIP race skyward, one blown save at a time. Saves are vitally important to winning your 5×5 fantasy leagues. The following relief pitcher tiers are all […]

Starting Pitcher Tiers

Starting Pitcher Tiers

Starting pitching is arguably the most important position in fantasy. You cannot win your league without a number of good options to anchor your staff. This position is also full of arm injuries, variability from year to year, and sleepers who will come out of nowhere to finish in the top-20. There are so many […]

Outfield Tiers

Outfield Tiers

The Elite Tier Mike Trout LAA 25 Mookie Betts BOS 24 Bryce Harper WAS 24 Charlie Blackmon COL 30 Mike Trout puts up incredible stats each season, but it’s the consistency that makes him the consensus top pick. Unlike other top players who have failed to stay in the top spot, Trout kills it in […]

Shortstop Tiers

Shortstop Tiers

Look at all the young talent at shortstop this year. In keeper leagues, you will hear about the “Big-4” franchise shortstops. This cohort excludes third baseman Machado, and Trevor Story has to repeat to be considered a consensus part of this group. I put him in The Elite Tier because the ceiling puts him at […]

Third Baseman Tiers

Third Baseman Tiers

This is the position I was looking forward to writing about, and you should be looking to build your fantasy team around. In a keeper league, Bryant, Arenado and Machado are three of the most valuable commodities you can add to your roster. In a seasonal league, add Donaldson to that list and you have […]

Second Baseman Tiers

Second Baseman Tiers

What’s the advantage of tiers? Placing players of the same position into tiers based on similar projected production can give you a huge advantage when planning out your roster and acquiring players for the season. These second base tiers will differ significantly from some of the ranking lists you will see this Spring, so use […]

First Baseman Tiers

First Baseman Tiers

What’s the advantage of tiers? Placing players of the same position into tiers based on similar projected production can give you a huge advantage when planning out your roster. What’s the gap between Joey Votto, Miguel Cabrera and Edwin Encarnacion? It’s projected to be minimal, so take who you like. Otherwise, wait for someone else to […]

What Have You Done for Me Lately

What Have You Done for Me Lately

In 1986, Janet Jackson asked the timeless question “What have you done for me lately?” That type of thinking is what stock market investors would call “recency bias” and can cause you to make some serious errors in judgement when valuing and acquiring players this Spring. The application to fantasy baseball is assuming that however […]
