Fantasy baseball is a game where you want to gain more value than you give up. Whether it be at the draft table, in a trade, or as a waiver pickup. Essentially everything (league type, size, categories, team construction, etc) is relative, but one thing that is not relative is the impact that some prospects can provide. Every year, a player (or several) gets called up and over performs at the highest level possible. These guys can be hard to find, but sometimes can be staring at you for months on waivers before getting called up. This regular article will hopefully keep you at the top of the standings by giving you a leg up on your league mates. Here are my top 5 prospects coming into 2018 (leaving off Ohtani because I dont view him as a "true prospect").
In my early stages of prepping for the 2018 fantasy baseball draft season and I am already noticing a few great values. I am looking at fantrax.com ADP data, as of 2/9/18. Some of these guys are small values and some are core guys that can win a championship. Most of them will be rostered by the winner of your league I'm sure. I am here to make sure that winner is you.
