Power Drought? Each MLB season, the power numbers of certain hitters decrease. As fantasy players, we wish we could have seen it coming. In 2014, big names like Evan Longoria, Adrian Beltre, and Robinson Cano saw large dips in their home run numbers, each...

BALLER MOVE: Target ~270 ANALYSIS: 2014 was a disaster for Jason Castro. He posted a career-worst .222/.286/.366 line while seeing his BABIP fall 57 points from 2013. A closer look shows an increased K% (29.5%) and lower BB% (6.6%). Furthermore, his GB % rose...

BALLER MOVE: Target ~290 Overall ANALYSIS: A season after posting a ludicrous 1.78 ERA that sat a full run below his FIP, the pendulum swung all the way back for Clay Buchholz. His E-F was the highest among all qualified starters. As you might imagine, it’s...

BALLER MOVE: Target ~200 Overall ANALYSIS: Last year, Nick Castellanos carried extra hype in my fantasy leagues, so there was no way I was spending a draft pick on him. Now, he’s basically fallen off the fantasy baseball radar. Still only 22,...

The staff here at Fake Teams is making bold predictions, so I thought I would join in on the fun and give you mine. The forthcoming list of predictions is my best attempt to produce somewhat controversial, somewhat bold predictions for fantasy baseball in...

I'm hitting varying degrees of gumption in my predictions this year. Tailored for your pleasure. I anguished over this year's gimmick, y'all. Two years ago, I crammed as many goofball jokes as I could into 30 predictions. Last year I made forecasts for just...

You’re buying high, but he’s still a great value. Last year Mike Leake pitched 214 innings, had 11 wins, 164 strikeouts, a 3.7 ERA, and a 1.246 WHIP. Nothing about that seems very impressive besides his inning total, but there was more than what...

In this series I will list some starting pitchers who are going late in drafts that I think have high upside in 2015. I define high upside as the potential to significantly outperform their draft slots. Here is part 2: Brandon McCarthy, Los Angeles Dodgers...

View image | gettyimages.com As you might imagine, outfield is one of the deepest positions in any fantasy draft. The trouble is that different leagues treat outfielders differently. Some of them consider them collectively while others break them down by their...
