The 2017 Fantasy Baseball Guide: Review and Promo

January 26, 2017 | by RotoRob | Comments (2)
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.

MLB Today: Javier Baez Shakes Off Slump

September 27, 2016 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
August was ugly, but September has been marginally better despite less PT. Still, he’s been a hard player to keep active in Fantasy rosters lately. Baez’s walk rate keeps dipping, and that’s a concern from an overall development perspective, although we’re still bullish on his long-term prospects. So he hasn’t had the offensive breakout we expected this season, but let’s remember he’s 23.

Is This Cleveland’s Year?

September 23, 2016 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Cleveland has the best home record in the American League. With three straight wins and six in the last 10, this team has pretty much blown the Tigers away in the AL Central. With a magic number of four, the Indians are about to wrap up their first division title in nearly a decade. One of the biggest reasons? After going 9-10 against the Royals last year, Cleveland is 9-1 vs. KC this season.

Cubs Punch Playoff Ticket

September 17, 2016 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
This marks the second straight season the Cubbies have made it to the postseason, last year bowing out in four straight in the NLCS to the Mets. Can Chicago get back to the NLCS and this time figure out how to earn a win or two — or maybe even make it to the World Series — for the first time since 1945?

Daily Dump: Jeff Locke

August 9, 2016 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
In his last start, Locke was handed a four-lead in the first inning against a weak Atlanta squad. The final score? Braves 8, Pirates 4. He was molested by what’s little more than a Triple-A club for nine hits, two walks and five earned runs over 4 1/3 innings, thereby sealing his doom.
