The 2016 Fantasy Baseball Guide: Review and Promo

January 13, 2016 | by RotoRob | Comments (2)
2016 Fantasy Baseball Guide
Everyone’s favourite Fantasy guide is back!

Given the recent weather, you can be excused for not actually realizing that it is now January, which means it’s time for the annual rite that is the Fantasy Baseball Guide. The 2016 edition is now out, and we’re here to give you the inside information about what you can expect. And hell, we’ll even throw in a sweet offer for our readers because we are just all about spreading the STD-free love.

RotoRob has now been a proud contributor to RotoMan’s fantastic Fantasy baseball research publication for a dozen years! Every fall, we break out our long pants, start eating more hearty meals and completely engross ourselves in writing profiles for the Fantasy Baseball Guide, this time churning out over 400 of them! For us, this is “the most wonderful time of the year.”

So ya… about that promo: same dealio as last year, my peeps. RotoRob readers can 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.

Go here, plug in the following promo code at checkout: RotoRob and… Boom! You just got the best publication the industry has to offer and you saved yourself 100 cents. You’re welcome.

As per usual, this ideal guide featured plenty of Team RotoRob-related involvement. Besides myself, current and former RotoRob writers whose work can be found in the 2016 Fantasy Baseball Guide include: Buck Davidson, Tim McLeod and Herija Green.

The key changes for 2016 revolve around rookies. We’ve made some changes in this section that result in a better focus on our top rookie rankings, but also mean you’ll find better profiles in the actual guide section.

For 2016, the goal was to get a more useful group of players into the Guide, so we had a lot more discussions and tended to be much more ruthless when it came to cutting those marginal players that never tend to actually provide any Fantasy value.

However, because our profiles were more in-depth and we had more picks and pans than ever before, the profile section is actually four pages longer this year!

The experts consensus pick for the 2016 Rookie of the Year? Oh, a certain middle infielder for the Dodgers, followed by a superb outfield prospect in Minnesota.

But wait, there’s more. Purchase the 2016 Fantasy Baseball Guide and you’ll also receive:

  • The 30 top rookies for 2016;
  • Strategy essays;
  • Multipositional eligibility charts;
  • Over 1,400 player profiles (422 written by yours truly), complete with roto prices and projections;
  • Position by position cheat sheets;
  • An expert NFBC-style mock draft including analysis;
  • Over 300 picks and pans from Fantasy baseball experts (yes, this includes RotoRob, who last year identified Jake Odorizzi, Madison Bumgarner and Charlie Blackmon as dudes you wanted on your team, while advising you to steer clear of Michael Cuddyer, Tyler Matzek and Billy Hamilton).

The publication started showing up in stores around January 7, or if you want to procure it online, once again, order here and remember to use the RotoRob 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 2012 Fantasy Baseball Guide

February 2, 2012 | by RotoRob | Comments (79)
The big change for 2012 is that the magazine is no longer driven to be the first to the stands. We decided this year to shift final production forward by several weeks, allowing more time to report on and analyze offseason player movement. The end result is that you get the same unparalleled expert commentary, but with the added bonus of more timeliness. Sweet!

Dear RotoRob: Who Should I Keep?

February 1, 2009 | by Tim McLeod | Comments (3)
Sure, having a signed Kelly Shoppach card is sweet, but we wouldn’t want him on our team in a eight-keeper league. Dear RotoRob,   I have read what you’ve written in the Fantasy Baseball Guide (the Peter Kreutzer one) over the past few years, and also have read your site. I have two questions concerning keepers.   I play in a 5×5 [...]

Fantasy Notes: John Smoltz Rolling

July 8, 2006 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
But the wins have been hard to come by thanks to lack of run support and some shoddy bullpen work that’s cost him four, perhaps five wins. Last Monday he earned his first victory in eight starts to square his record at 5-5. Smoltz followed that up Saturday with a remarkable outing for his sixth win. He’s dominated the Reds over the years, winning 19 games against them including a 13-0 mark over the past 16 starts. And Saturday’s eight-inning, six-hit, one-run, one-walk effort gives Smoltz a three-start line of 21 IP, 19 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 HR, 3 BB and 21 K since the injury scare. He really had it going Saturday, still gunning it in at 94 mph in his final inning. All told, the 39-year-old righty fanned at least 10 for the 39th time in his career. Smoltzy even contributed a pair of singles, the second of which drove in a run and was huge as the club rolled the dice and let him hit for himself in the bottom of the seventh with two on and two out while clinging to a one-run lead.
