We (me) have gone over the catchers, 2nd basemen, shortstops and 3rd basemen to target, cause I have to do everything around here!  Look at me, throwing shade like a beach umbrella!  That makes sense…if you don’t think about it!  That’s what I want my bumper sticker to say, and then when I step out of my car, I want my clever t-shirt to say it too, “That makes sense….if you don’t think about it.”  How can I arrange my life so this happens?  I need a personal assistant.  “So, it says you worked as Kanye’s assistant and you bought mirrors for nine months straight….”  That’s me checking the CV of my favorite imaginary assistant.  Okay, so this post is all the outfielders that are being drafted after 200 overall that I have uber-sexy feelings for.  Last year, I featured Joc Pederson, Khris Davis, Wil Myers and some guy named Delino DeSomething.  No idea who that is!  Now, this is a (legal-in-all-countries-except-Canada) supplement to the top 100 outfielders for 2017 fantasy baseball.  Click on the player’s name where applicable to read more and see their 2017 projections.   Anyway, here’s some outfielders to target for 2017 fantasy baseball:

Max Kepler (Yahoo 267)  Obviously I’m crazy for Kepler this year.  Honestly, I didn’t even know I was as crazy for him as it turned out I was.  When I wrote the Max Kepler sleeper, I figured people would rank him around 150 overall, and I’d be slightly higher on him just inside the top 100 overall.  Well, oopsie daisies because I’m not even close to most rankers.  ESPN has him at 132 overall and that’s the closest I’ve seen to where I have him, and, after seeing his projections at ESPN, I don’t even know why they have him ranked that high.  I know why I do.  He’s a 25/10/.265 guy who will hit fifth and play every day.  At least that’s what I’ve convinced myself.  Here’s to delusions of Kepler’s grandeur!

Yasmany Tomas (ESPN 208)  Here’s a weird one.  If Yasiel Puig approached a season like Yasmany had last year (31 HRs, 2 SBs, .272), he’d be a top 40 overall pick.  Yasmany, on the other hand which is actually a foot wearing a mitten, has a season better than anything Puig’s ever done and is still ranked after Puig.  It’s that mysterious, elusive upside.  And, in this weird world where we can only compare Cubans with Cubans, Yasmany is essentially on par with Yoenis and ranked 150 spots after him.

Joc Pederson (ESPN 220)  Member the problem I had at shortstops and 3rd basemen to target?  How I wasn’t super crazy happy with the options late?  Not the case at all for outfielders.  There’s a ton of late outfielders I love.  I could even see waiting until after the top 200 to take a 4th and 5th outfielder and maybe utlity man.  When usually I’d just take a 5th outfielder or utility man.  Also, I wrote up a Joc Pederson sleeper, because it’s the preseason and what would a preseason be without a Joc Pederson sleeper post.  Wouldn’t be a preseason, I tell ya.  Somewhere my Brett Lawrie sleeper post is saying, “You used to talk real sweet about me too!”

Randal Grichuk (ESPN 214)   What’s to love about Grichuk if you only have room for seven more words in your brain?  I wrote a Randal Grichuk sleeper too.

Leonys Martin – (ESPN 269, Yahoo 312)  Okay, yes, there was a Leonys Martin sleeper post too.  Since the Martin sleeper, Dyson became a thing in Seattle, and, while I do believe the M’s think Dyson could be their leadoff man, I have my doubts on whether that will actually take hold.  My guess at the top of their lineup will be Segura, Martin and Cano, then Dyson in the nine hole.  The nine hole is also porn shorthand for the left ear.  Little fun fact for you!

Nomar Mazara (ESPN 224) Recurring Theme Alert!  I wrote a Nomar Mazara sleeper too.  After I wrote that, Mazara potentially lost his full-time job, and might only face righties.  There’s more righties than lefties, says Mr. Obvious, but I still love Mazara.  When I start liking Rangers outfielders I don’t let up, huh?  “We were once friends!”  Shut up, Delino DeSomething.

Manuel Margot (Yahoo 302)  Well, I didn’t write a Manuel Margot sleeper, but I did give you my Manuel Margot fantasy.  Surprised that most places I look have Margot being drafted at about the right spot, near the beginning of the top 200, but even more surprised by how much I can see myself drafting four Padres hitters.  This has me feeling nauseous, I need to sit down.  Okay, who took my seat?  Seriously!  Bring it back!  What’s even more obtuse, Padres pitchers are so awful this year.  I drafted the first Padres starter in my NFBC league yesterday at around pick 500 overall.  For the love of Hodgepadres, what has San Diego done?!

Hunter Renfroe (Yahoo 241)  2017 will be known as the year all of my hitters are either on the Rockies or the Padres and I’m not hoping for home games for half of them and away games for the other half.  I need to sign into my TalkSpace account to ask a professional why I like so many Padres hitters.  By the way, yes, I gave you a Hunter Renfroe fantasy too.

Carlos Gomez (Yahoo 216)  I got about eleven guys into the outfielders being ranked after the top 200 and was like, “Okay, I’d draft all of these outfielders late, maybe I’ll draft only one outfielder early and draft four of them late, or…Hey, birdie on my window!  Wait, what was I saying again?”  As for Gomez, I have major doubts here, but after 200 overall feels like a decent price for a guy that could bounce back, and he was solid on the Rangers in the 2nd half last year.

Jorge Soler (ESPN NR, Yahoo 239)  I have a feeling this is going to be you next year.  “Why did I write off Soler going into 2017 when he was finally going to have an everyday job and he was only 25 years old?”  Then you’re going to use your head to make your living room more of an open living space.

Aaron Judge (ESPN/Yahoo NR)  I don’t know what this means, but Judge is the only guy here that plays east of the Mason-Dixon line if the Mason-Dixon ran north/south rather than separating north/south.   Oh, and of course, I wrote an Aaron Judge fantasy too.

Mitch Haniger (ESPN/Yahoo NR)  He had 25 HRs and eight steals between Triple-A and the majors last year, and hit .341 in Triple-A, while consistently hitting above .280 every year.  Why hasn’t anyone talked about him?  Because, and this is a guess, his name is Mitch.  Who talks about a guy named Mitch?  Can I spell his name M*tch?

Domingo Santana (ESPN NR, Yahoo 217)  Wow, someone I actually didn’t write about previously.  I did, however, write about his teammate at the Keon Broxton sleeper post, but he’s not ranked after the top 200 at Yahoo or ESPN.  By the way, in this ‘to target’ posts, I always say something like ‘these guys are being drafted after the top 200,’ but that’s not entirely true.  They’re simply ranked after 200 at Yahoo or ESPN, where they’re actually being drafted, I don’t know.  Any hoo!  Sunday Santana’s been a fave of mine for a few years, which you can take to mean: he’s underperformed for a few years now.  Yes, you sayer of nay, that is true.  He’s underperformed like Villar underperformed for a few years prior to last year.  Snap!  I snapped you!  Sunday doesn’t have a ton of speed, so it’ll leave you slightly wont for more, but who the hell says ‘slightly wont for more?’  Who are you, Scarlett O’Hara?  Grow a pair!

David Peralta (Yahoo 221)  Fine, one more!  The David Peralta sleeper.  I told you I love a lot of outfielders late!  Just so happens I’ve written about most of them previously.  Somewhere along the line since I wrote that post, I now see Peralta being labeled a platoon outfielder.  The ol’ cleanup hitter a platoon player, huh?  Um, yeah, platooned with who?  Jeremy Hazelbaker?  Daniel Descalso?  How about he just blahtoon with Eric Byrnes while he’s at it?  Seriously, this year in outfield might be like last year in middle infield.  A ton of late round sleepers that make out really well while guys like Adam Jones, McCutchen, etc. finally ride off into the sunset.

NL Only League Question I’d love an opinion on please.

I was offered an $11 Kenta Madea for my $5 Jon Gray and $8 Vincent Velasquez pre-auction. Should I take it? My only other pitcher keeper will be a $24 Jon Lester. I’m leaning against, but I do like Madea a lot.

Thanks!

I need 5 keepers in a H2H yahoo league
My choices so far would be Bryant, Arenado, Springer, C Seager, & Odor.
Since JD is hurt so that option is out. My other possibilities would be C Mart, Cole, Duffy, or Dahl. I could see taking Dahl instead of C Seager but a top SS is nice to have.
Any thoughts?.

Master Splinter, aka Grey,

Listened to the podcast today, awesome stuff man, threw ya a 5 star review. I also owe you margaritas for 2017 as the year is about to blast off, so keep your eye out for that.

I shot you my roster before, but made a trade or 2 since then, so wanted to give you a new breakdown.

12tm AL only dynasty league, 13 keepers, $260 cap.

Lucroy $21
Carlos Santana $21
Jonathan Schoop $18
Jorge Polanco $10
George Springer $17
Leonys Martin $14
Kiermaier $6
Tilson $5
Verlander $19
Archer $15
Salazar $5
Paxton $10
Sam Dyson $2
Edwin Diaz $10

I need to get down to 13 players, here are my current options:

1. Trade Jorge Polanco and Sam Dyson for Marcus Semien ($16).
2. Trade Edwin Diaz, Verlander and Tilson for Byron Buxton ($5), Starlin Castro ($11) and Bradley Zimmer ($2 – ML doesn’t count against roster).
3. Just drop Charlie Tilson and keep my team as is.

Well I did my first ever RCL last night. Just amazed at how drafting with Razzballers or perhaps just the guys in my draft last night can skewer how you pick. ADP went out the window fairly quickly & the guys in the room definitely dictated which way the draft went & all i could do was try to react. I did get the 1st pick so that likely leveled the playing field a bit.
I felt “forced” at times to take pitching when I typically would not but I think I ended up pretty decent considering. I was happy I ended up with a few of your OF sleepers before reading this so hopefully that bodes well.
I ended up with:
C Weiters
1B C Davis
2B Walker
3B Rendon
SS Bogaerts
MI Andrus
CI Joseph
OF Trout, Yelich, O. Herrera, Margot, D Santana,
Utilty D Peralta
SP Bumgarner, Maeda, Duffy, McCullers, A Sanchez, V Velasquez, Happ, Snell, Ross
RP Chapman, N Jones, J Gomez

Wondering how I did despite obviously taking more SP earlier then I planned.

Hey Grey,
Here’s the team I ended up with. Drafting second sucks! Peraza went way too early which screwed me up for steals and left me trying to get creative with my last picks. (6×6 12-team OPS roto)

C- Martin
1B – Freeman
2B – Segura
3B – Rendon
SS- Story
OF – Harper (I went out on a little limb and took him second overall. I smell a comeback with a vengeance), Kepler, Inciarte, Leonys
UTIL – Pujols, Forsythe, Hernan Perez (I know…)

SPs – Cueto, C Mart, Maeda, Salazar, McCullers, Hellickson, Nova
RPs – Familia, Bedrosian, Glover, Kelley

Heya,

At the end of my draft, I needed a generic OF, and took Jay Bruce in round 23-25, I thought that was rather good, but some of the guys on your list are out on my wire. Would you drop Bruce for Renforce, Margot, Judge or Soler?

Also, Holland might be out on the wire and I have Ottavino, wondering if I should make some room for both.

Thanks, dude.

Did my first ever auction draft on Sunday (i asked you guys about strategy on Sat). I thought for some reason it was a 12 teamer, didn’t realize until it started that it was actually 14 teams. ESPN 5×5 H2H, max 12 starts/week, min 35 IP/week, and max 7 moves/week. With those rules, i figured getting two aces was the best way to attack pitching. Having already drafted Thor and Darvish through 5 picks, i got up to get a beer, came back to my phone and saw Archer was up for $21, trying to get cute and drive up the price, i bid $21 and ended up with him. That’s my only huge regret, could’ve used that $21 on a better 3B but oh well, rookie mistake. I only took 1 closer and passed up on other cheap ones to get Dahl and Moncada late, SAGNOF. Other than that, really happy with my team, feel i got a lot of good value. Your thoughts guys?

Sup Grey! Dug the AMA,

I have a surplus of OFers and definitely need a SP. Kepler and Broxton are my 2 bottom guys… was thinking maybe Kepler for Paxton, but after reading this, maybe that’s too low of a sell. If so, what range of guys would you deal Kepler for?

I’ve been offered Yasmany for Castellanos in a league where I could use another OF and have depth at 3B/CI. The only thing giving me pause is his oblique injury, heard any more about it? If he’s back playing I’d do it in an instant, but seeing as he’s just offered it me I feel he might only do it while there’s injury uncertainty so would you take it now?

Drafted last night in a 12-team H2H keeper. I basically have the same sort of roster every year in this league — lots of power and upside on hitting side, and a pitching staff held together with spit and glue — and this year is no different:
C – Rupp
1B – Rizzo (Keeper)
2B – Segura (Keeper)
3B – Rendon
SS – Russell
CI – Encarnacion
MI – Semien
OF – Trout (Keeper)
OF – Braun
OF – Just Dong (Keeper *oof*)
OF – Kepler
UT – J. Turner
UT – Healy
BN – Domingo
BN – Granderson
SP – Carrasco
SP – Hill
SP – Lackey
SP – Hammel
SP – Hellickson
RP – Betances
RP – Bedrosian
P – Glover
P – Kintzler
P – Rodney
BN – Nova
BN – McHugh
BN – Da. Norris
BN – R. Lopez (thanks, J.B.!)

A little light on speed, but I don’t care too much in H2H. Lots of risk with pitching, but maybe it’ll all come up Milhouse this year. Granderson is J.D. insurance. If he’s not going to miss much time, I’ll drop Grandy for some upsidey pitcher.

Knock on wood, but with Ausmus being “optimistic” about JD and just not wanting to inaccurately give timetables, would it be crazy to now think that JD could be good to go for opening day or shortly thereafter? Sounds almost like he didn’t want to promise an opening day ETA without triple confirming . . .

Yo, Grey,

12-team, h2h, 5×5

No bench bats in a league like this is like, RULE #1, right? I’m the only team with none. The least any other team has is three. There are a lot of teams with four and several with five. FIVE.

I’m right to not have any, correct? Or, am I mis-remembering stuff you wrote in like 2009?

Yo Grey. I’m sorry in advance for the long winded question. I try to keep my questions simple, but in this case I must get your thoughts on strategy for my innings cap keeper league. I’m going to try and give as much context as possible, while keeping this as brief as possible. I’m in a 10-team yahoo roto keeper league normal 5×5 categories but with a 1,300 innings limit cap. I am new to an innings cap format, and form my understanding 1,400 is the default, so our limit is a bit low.

My team going into the draft:
C –
1b – Rizzo
2b – Odor
SS –
3b – Arenado
Cm – Wil Myers
Mi –
OF1 – Springer
OF2 – Blackmon
OF3 – Marte
OF4 – Stanton
UTIL1 – Polanco
UTIL2 – Hosmer

P1 – Darvish
P2 – Carrasco
P3 – Hendricks
P4 –
P5 –
P6 – Ken Giles
P7 –
5 Bench spots –

To start, my team is obviously pretty loaded which is great. Though, my first pick is not until the #14 pick but I also have the #16 pick. Obviously you need much more context, but out of the available players listed below who I firmly believe will be available to me at 14 and 16, in a vacuum which direction would you take with these 2 picks? Only keeper note is that anyone I draft at these spots, I will have the ability at the end of this season to choose to keep them for anywhere for the next 1 to 3 years. Available players…

– SS: Segura, Peraza…..meh Segura just doesn’t tickle my fancy. Peraza seems like quite the hype reach, but won’t be available come my next pick at the #32 spot. I could skip on SS/MI and pick up some of your faves a bit later…Semian, Schoop, Tim Anderson

– SP: Gerrit Cole

– RP: Britton, Melancon, E Diaz….I’m almost inclined to go Britton and then Diaz for that k/9 upside which I believe would be beneficial in a low innings cap league.

– Best available hitter: Cespedes, C Santana, Hanley…I have no room for an OF or corner type, but I can move them or other hitters post draft as I make lots of trades/moves

So, which 2 would you roll with if you were me? Thanks Grey, and sorry for the exhausting question!

In a 10 team, 5×5 roto keeper league where everyone keeps 5. Does that format move Bregman up for you? He’d basically have to be a keeper next year to justify a big jump in the ranks, which, it doesn’t seem crazy that he’d be top 50 next year. Just wondering where you would target him in this draft. Thanks!

Hello Grey,
Do you think a trade where I give Myers and LeMahieu and I get Trea Turner is at all fair? I guess I am thinking that he would want more from me, but I am not sure. He could use some immediate OF help as he has Desmond and Dahl.

Thanks much for the advice.

I’m in a keeper league that resets at the end of next season. I have 4 spots, I’m keeping Correa for 8, Goldy for 26, Turner for 5. Leaving me with a choice between Betts for 38, G. Sanchez 5, Arrieta 21, Duffy 5. I’m saving so much with my first three guys that Betts may make the most sense, especially because other players with tons of money as well. Who do you think makes the most sense here? For reference Trout went for 65 last year so top hitters end up pretty pricey.

Also curious if I could get anyone’s comments on this team I drafted…12 team 5×5 roto, 3 OF slots and 1 util (none of that MI/CI crap in this league) 2 keepers from prior year.

Schwarber
Hosmer
Lemahieu
Correa
Rendon
Betts
Polanco
Gomez
Buxton/Desmond once he comes back

Starters – Stras/Salazar/McCullers/Pineda/Cobb/Lynn/Liriano
CL – Herrera/Watson/Holland/Glover

I realize I took on more risk with my pitching staff than Napoleon invading Russia in the winter, but I’m hoping to flip one of my lottery tickets (Gomez/Buxton) for a good ratios guy mid-April. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

@Grey: The worst. It lets lazy managers participate in bidding that would never happen otherwise . . . though I guess that’s a legit “fairness for all” argument too.

Last year (my first year in this ~10 year old keeper league) I ran out of FAAB in August and dropped from 3/4 to 8 (out of 12) as injuries piled up and I fielded 3/4 of a roster with Shoemaker and Colon as my healthy “aces”. This year, I’ve set ground rules for myself!

1. No FAAB on catchers unless mine are literally not playing.

2. Limit streaming until second half, don’t spend over $1 on a streamer.

3. Don’t spend > $10 on anyone absent something crazy. (I’ve got Tapia, Meadows, and Raul Mondesi in my reserve, which is basically NA in this weekly lineup format, so hopefully that helps on this front!)

@Grey: Thanks! For sure, esp among us waiver hungry folks. Someone like Koda (a strong RP being named closer) is probably the only type of player I would bid anything on this early in the season.

Though I may spend $1 to swap Peralta for Holliday (who I didn’t realize was available) given the whispers of a Peralta platoon…

Also, assuming equivalent ABs for each (say, 500), who do you think has the best year: Judge, Renfroe, Soler or Margot?

My money’s on Soler there. I’m not sure about the move to the AL, but he definitely has the most MLB experience and might have just needed a change of scenery.

Hi Grey- would you send Strasburg and Cain for Frazier in a 12 team roto keeper league? Likely wouldn’t keep Cain, so it’s pretty much Strasburg for Frazier. I have several other pitchers I can keep, so I don’t really need Strasburg, but Frazier doesn’t crack your top 10 3Bs and Strasburg has massive potential. I also have two keeper corner infielders already.

Related question, would you keep Frazier or Tim Anderson in an unlimited duration keeper for next year? It seems the White Sox see Anderson in their plans for a while, but it might be a better use of a keeper spot to draft someone else and get Anderson a few rounds later.

Thank you!

I’m in a 12 team roto 5×5 that uses OBP instead of AVG. Weekly lineups. Each teams keeps 7 players. 2 bats, 2 arms, and 3 of our choosing. We start C,1B,2B,3B,SS,MI,CI,OF,OF,OF,OF,OF,UTL and 9 any pitcher slots along with 7 bench.

My current keepers are Altuve, Marte, C. Davis, J. Segura, K. Janssen, C. Carrasco, and Mccullers.

Question#1 Should I keep K. Seager instead of Mccullers? Maeda, C Mart, Tanaka, Salazaar, and Cole are all available in the draft to give you an idea.

Question#2 I have the 1st pick in the draft. With the injuries to Desmond and JD Martinez i’m completely torn now what to do. The best players available are Encarnacion, Villar, Desmond, JD Martinez, Carlos Gonzalez, K. Seager, Dee Gordon, Beltre

Thanks in advance! Appreciate it

Hi Grey,

This past Sunday was our 16th Annual NL-Only auction. I had a great time, and only a few regrets. I have appreciated all your write-ups to help prepare for it, and continue to look forward throughout the season.

NL-Only 10-Team H2H 5×5 w/ OBP ($280 cap)

Here’s my team with their prices.

CA – Realmuto ($5)
1B – GOLDY (44)
2B – LeMahieu (9)
3B – Franco (12)
SS – Villar (12)
INF – Solarte (9)
OF – Pollock (31), JOC (25), Grichuk (17), Tapia (1)
Util – Kang (4)
B – Brinson (2)

SPs – Cole (31), Hendricks (14), Moore (14), Roark (13), Nova (10), Folty (7), Guerra (6)
RPs – Rondon (6), Phelps (4), Dayton (3), Knebel (1)

A) I know, I know. I have no closer #SAGNOF. Jansen was kept, and Cole & Pollock were thrown out quickly. I’m such a sucker for both of them. I then spent money on Joc that I could have used on one of Melancon (27) and Oh (24) who I believe are the only guys worth paying the money for. Even JJ went for $16. #SAGNOF

B) I think my offense is solid all around. Almost all bat within the top 5 of their lineups, and will figure in run production. I have OBP, power, and speed. Grichuk’s low OBP w/ his HR upside is fairly offset by my other guys. Tapia doesn’t have a gig, and Kang might not be ready for the start of the season though. Adam Frazier is available, and he looks like he could score consistent ABs. I’ll wait for the start of the season to figure out those spots.

C) I like my rotation. I didn’t think Cole would go for $31 I budgeted $32 on him. He was thrown out before Maeda(25), so I lost my chance at him. I wanted one of them, but Maeda more. Lester went for $40 and Max went for only $41.

D) I have RPs that could see saves eventually. Lorenzen is also available. Who would you drop (excluding Brinson) for him? Would you use a #5 WP (tomorrow)?

E) I wanted Brinson. Prospects like him have major trade value near our deadline, and I could score a top SP and good bat from a team that’s out and looking to next year.

Any other thoughts about my team would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Thanks for the article Gray. Quick keeper question..I need to pick two of these guys..

Round 1: C. Kershaw
Round 2: K. Bryant
Round 23: T. Turner
Round 24: G. Sanchez
Round 25: B. Buxton

Do I go with the sure things and loose my first two draft picks or do I go with the the guys with upside and the crazy value? Maybe a combo? Kershaw and Bryant would go back into the pool so I would have a chance to draft one of them if I had an early pick in round 1. This is a decision that’s been weighing on me for months so any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Thanks for the write ups on the daily Gray,

i was curious to get your take on this stragtey, drafting currently 1st in a 10 man h2h points league. I’m thinking of going offense ( OF, 1B, SS ) first 3 picks and then going ( SP, SP ) for picks 40 and 41. If I go ( SP , SP ) I’m thinking of grabbing Y. Darvish, J. Verlander, Arrieta, or Cueto. Which 2 of this pitchers would you combo with each other? Or would you grab one of these possible pitcher and pair them with an offense player, instead of going (SP, SP) go (SP, Hitter)?

*If my question is confusing I apologize. Thanks for your help.
