The 2017 Fantasy Baseball Guide
Kris Bryant helped the Cubs end their drought… and then became our cover boy.

Well, it’s January once again, and you know what that means, right? NFL Playoffs? Check. Freezing your ‘nads off? Check. The release of another Fantasy Baseball Guide? Check, mate!

As always, we’ve got the scoop on the current edition (shockingly known as 2017), and as per usual, we’re going to make our readers an offer they can’t refuse.

RotoRob has hit lucky 13 in the number of years he’s now been contributing to RotoMan’s great Fantasy baseball tool, the Fantasy Baseball Guide. It was yet another fall of darker beers and excessive profile writing, although we wrote fewer than 400 of them this time around. We know, we know… what a slacker!

Now, about that offer we alluded to. Once again, we’re giving RotoRob.com readers a chance to save $1 when they order the online version (US$7.99; you need a web connection to view it, but it auto formats to any device or screen) or PDF version (US$9.95, this is a download that can be read on your device, best viewed on a desktop, laptop or tablet) of the magazine.

So, go ahead and surf here, order your product and simply use promo code Rob17 at checkout and you’re in like Flynn: owner of the best Fantasy baseball publication and $1 richer and closer to salvation. Life is good sometimes, isn’t it?

As per usual, this quintessential guide featured plenty of Team RotoRob-related involvement. Besides myself, current and former RotoRob writers whose work can be found in the 2017 Fantasy Baseball Guide include: Buck DavidsonTim McLeod and Herija Green.

New this year are some essays in Strategyland including an article by J.D. Bolick about discovering unheralded callups during the season. There are also new essays about making trades in keeper leagues and hybrid relievers like Andrew Miller that can do it all.

But wait, there’s more. Order the 2017 Fantasy Baseball Guide now and you’ll also receive:

  • The 30 top rookies for 2017;
  • An expert NFBC-style mock draft including analysis;
  • Position by position cheat sheets;
  • Games played by position charts for both major and minor leaguers;
  • Strategy essays;
  • Over 1,400 player profiles (379 written by yours truly), complete with roto prices and projections; and
  • Over 300 picks and pans from Fantasy baseball experts (yes, this includes RotoRob, who last year identified Chris Sale, Jose Peraza and Daniel Murphy as dudes you wanted on your team, while advising you to steer clear of Yovani Gallardo, Jake Arrieta and David Wright).

The publication started showing up in stores some time last week, but of course if you prefer to procure it online, once again, order here and remember to use the Rob17 promo code for a deal!

Now it’s your turn. Let us know in the comments below what you think of this year’s edition.

The Wire Troll: Patrick Maroon Gushing for Oilers

January 8, 2017 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Young puck-moving blueliner Beaulieau is starting to flex his offensive muscles, potting a goal and two power play assists on Wednesday, giving him a 1-4-5, +3 line over the last four games. Seeing time on the first power play unit is sure to get this kid’s numbers rocking, and the fact he’s now +15 on the season (tied for 15th in the NHL) is a serious bonus.

The Wire Troll: Willie Reed Taking Advantage of Extra PT

January 7, 2017 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Hardaway has been on fire in the last week, canning 12 treys in three games, while scoring at least 12 points in each contest. He’s getting more starts this season, and has responded with arguably the finest effort of his four-year career. But given Hardaway’s cap hit, the Hawks are looking to peddle him, so depending on where he lands, he could be in for a boost. At the very least, Atlanta is showcasing him now, beefing up his value for the time being and making him a nice waiver add for those seeking an injection of scoring and three pointers.

Can Torey Lovullo Clean up the Mess in Arizona?

January 3, 2017 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Arizona has opted for a slow burn approach, deciding against making massive roster changes, but rather just tweaking and trusting in the talent it currently has in place. Considering the team has suffered three straight losing seasons, and has failed to make the playoffs since 2011, that approach may not fly with its fan base unless there are some pretty instant results.

The Wire Troll: Marcus Foligno Moves to Top Line

December 25, 2016 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Before getting shut out on Thursday, Smith had been blazing, potting three goals (including a shorty) with three assists over the previous three games, going +6 in the process. After a very quiet November, he’s now recorded eight points in 11 games this month, and after his career best +16 last season, he’s headed in the right direction now, bumping his +/- to the positive side of the ledger at +5. Ottawa’s third rounder from 2008 is unlikely to touch last season’s 25-goal breakout, but at least he’s shaken off the cobwebs and put himself back on the Fantasy radar.
