Fantasy Baseball 2014 Cheat Sheet

If you read my work, you know that I much prefer the auction format to a snake draft. The reasons are plentiful (even playing field for all owners, less luck involved, etc.), but we won’t get into all that now. 

 

Despite my feelings on snake drafts, I fully understand that a large percentage of fantasy owners still participate in them. So it’s only right that I release the official 2014 Starbonell Cheat Sheet for you snake-bitten readers. That said, I do think this list has merit for auction players as well. This sheet resembles how I think the fantasy value in standard 5×5 rotisserie leagues will shake out by season’s end. My expectation is that each and every ranking for these players will match up exactly with end-of-the-year results. Lofty goal, I know, but your boy Dudley Do Work always aims for excellence.

Note-worthy position eligibility mentions are for Yahoo! leagues.
