This is in theory a season long fantasy football blog. However, during the off-season I believe it very exciting and profitable to take serious dives into the mlb season start so that you can pick great fantasy players for your fantasy baseball team, whether season long or daily type of leagues.
So if you have not been doing a whole lot to prepare for the 2019 season opener, even if you have not followed baseball closely in past years, I believe I can get you ready (with some help) for the mlb opening day 2019 schedule soon to start on 3/28/19.
With so many high profile players getting large contracts during spring training, a lot of these proven players are ready to play ball and not worry about the money right? I will highlight these peak players as we move along this article.
Here are the most important things we need to cover as an overview and then we will go into each with more depth.
A career statistical analysis, a daily matchup analysis, and recent season success or lack there of. Lastly, we’ll show you how to easily dive into pheripherials for any player.
Career statistical analysis
Any major league baseball player has big league data that is sometimes easy to read into because of such a large sample size, unlike football. Unless the player is a rookie, all of this is very relevant data, especially in season long formats. As there probably are some of those new to the fantasy baseball field in general, you can always got to MLB.com and start getting familiar with the stats you can view there and sort how you would like. I would recommend looking at the sortable fields there and sorting by active players, then arranging according to OBP + SLG, which is the last column to the right, so you can get a feel for the most productive players in the league. Then click on the player name.
Here we can compare the season stats with our next category of interest, the past season.
