No matter the format, prospects are going to enter into the fantasy equation at some point or another. Since covering prospects is the only reason they let me into the Razzball offices, it’s my job to help you make the most of them. This post will map out what you can expect from me this year as far as prospect coverage during the 2019 regular season. What you shouldn’t expect from me is competence, insight, sobriety, or a sense of humor. I’m glad we’ve got that out of the way.
News and Notes – Similar to the daily roundup, I’ll go over the ups and downs in the minor leagues so you can keep up on your favorite specs or learn something new about a spec you’ve never heard of.
Monthly Power Rankings – Weekly prospect power rankings get a bit repetitive, so I’ll be posting a prospect power ranking each month. The idea is you get to see who is the closest to coming up and who is most likely to make an impact in fantasy when they do.
Minor Accomplishments – A spotlight on a specific player in the minor leagues. This could be someone well known or on the fringe. The idea is they get 500-800 words just on them instead of the usual quick blurb. It’s a deep dive.
2019 MLB Draft – Coverage of all the players that are expected to be drafted and analysis of the players once they’re selected. This content is more relevant for dynasty leagues, but rumor has it more and more fantasy folks are getting involved with that format.
2019 International Signings – If you’re into the long-burn prospects of the J2 signing period, we’ll be looking at all the teenagers that get a dumptruck full of cash backed up to their door in July.
Razzball Dynasty League – I’m going to start a dynasty league for frequent commenters and writers on the side. We’ve done this once before, but I ended up leaving the site in the middle of it and I’m not sure where it got to. It’s all in good fun and dynasty drafts are epic.
Midseason Rankings – Prospect stocks will move – sometimes drastically – by midseason. I’ll rerank the Top 100 to reflect any graduations and changes in value from January to July.
