EP50 | 1B And 2B Top 10 Lists | This week we discuss our personal Top 10s from Phil (@thebaseballjedi) & Todd (@GoldyHappens) at 1B & 2B, Plus Jeramy's (@FrontOfficeJer) "Algorithm" brings an interesting spin on the Top Players at each position over the last 2 years.
Catching is such an interesting position year in & year out with few pillars of consistency and a whole lot of volatility. Newcomers arrive on the scene then fade away, those once stable pillars eventually crumble and fall, and there's always some prodigy on the horizon. How can you break free from drafting a terrible catcher who will play less than 110 games & generally hurt more categories than help? A two-headed approach.
Continuing with the mission to give you relatable projections to help build your fantasy team (first outlined for hitters here in Benchmarking the Projections), presented below are benchmarked projections for pitchers, both starters and relievers. The projections were compared to the average league category leader occurring since the introduction of PED testing. Seasons like those listed above form the measuring stick by which the projections are compared to. The list is color coded so you can easily separate the good from the bad numbers.
In fantasy baseball, the closer’s role experiences the most turnover over the course of a season. Every year, guys who appear to be locks for high-end production fall off and get replaced. It is truly a never-ending battle for any fantasy owner. Sure, Kenley Jansen, Aroldis Chapman, and Craig Kimbrel exist, but a premium price must be paid on Draft Day if an owner wants a virtual lock for a closer.
