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.

2016 Wire Troll All-Star Team

October 10, 2016 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Using the wire can provide value in many ways. Sometimes, it provides a temporary fix to an injury issue or it’s simply a case of jumping on a player offering short-term value. But when you pick up a player and he sticks on your team for all or most of the season and contributes throughout, that is the true definition of waiver wire gold.

The Wire Troll: Korean Invasion

August 28, 2016 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
The Korean theme continues with Kim, who impressed many a week and a half ago with his four-hit showing against Houston. That’s earned him some extra PT of late, and with hits in three straight games, he’s now batting a robust .319 — a figure which we can no longer of good conscience ignore. This “rookie” (we still don’t follow that logic for international players that have played professionally elsewhere) simply knows how to hit. And last we checked, that has some value.

The Wire Troll: Chad Green Earns Rotation Time for Yanks

August 21, 2016 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
At this stage of the season, if you’re a keeper league owner that’s out it, you’re scouring the minors for possible options. Drafted by the Phillies in the ninth round out of college last year, Laird hit well in his pro debut in 2015, but injuries limited his action this season. However, he tore through Low-A and continues to rake at High-A, piling up plenty of runs at both stops. Laird is not young, so will need to move fast, but is worth tracking.
