2010 Fantasy Baseball Preview: American League Rookies

Some fantasy baseball owners will over think when drafting their team and focus too much on predicting breakout stars and rookies and not pay enough attention to players that are definitely going to have good seasons. It’s easy to understand why because if you get the players that are definitely going to be good and then correctly predict the future of a few players then that might just be a championship team. None of the following American League rookies should be taken too high, but they could be valuable in fantasy baseball this year.

2010 Fantasy Baseball Preview: American League Rookies
Austin Jackson, CF, Tigers

Austin Jackson is at the top of everybody’s American League fantasy rookie list. One of the most difficult aspects of predicting a rookie’s season is to simply know at what point in the season they are going to start. Austin Jackson seems locked in as the Detroit Tigers everyday starter in centerfield from opening day and there aren’t many rookies you can say that about.

Brian Matusz, LHP, Orioles

The pitcher everybody is talking about in 2010 is Stephen Strasburg but Brian Matusz is probably the rookie pitcher that will have the biggest impact this season. Matusz will probably make the Orioles starting rotation to open the season, unlike Strasburg who won’t be up until middle of the season and could falter with no major league experience.

Brett Wallace, IF, Blue Jays

Brett Wallace has already been the main piece in the Matt Holliday-to-Oakland trade and was then swapped for Michael Taylor (the main piece in the Roy Halladay-to-Philadelphia trade) so there are high expectations. Wallace won’t start opening day but there have already been many Lyle Overbay trade rumors to make way for Wallace. If Overbay struggles or one of the designated hitters struggle then Wallace could be up sooner rather than later.

Michael Taylor, OF, A’s

Michael Taylor looks like a midseason call up so don’t draft him too high, or maybe even wait to pick him off the free agent list, but as bad as the A’s offense is Taylor should definitely get plenty of action this year.

2010 Fantasy Baseball Preview: American League Rookies
Wade Davis, RHP, Rays

Wade Davis is the main reason the Rays had no problem parting ways with Scott Kazmir last season. According to the Rays website the starting rotation has already been set with Davis being the fifth pitcher in the rotation. Although teams’ rotations don’t always match up with each other it is very possible that Davis is matched up against other teams’ fifth starter, which could equal some wins for him.

2010 Emmys Reward The Pacific; Creative Emmy Awards Given Out

2010 Emmy’s are already getting awarded. Some 2010 Emmy’s were handed out on Saturday during the 2010 Creative Emmy Awards presentation. One of the big winners was the mini-series The Pacific, which took home six awards for network HBO. The Creative Arts Emmy Awards are basically for all of the categories that don’t make it to the live primetime version of the Emmy show, but they have equal meaning for all of the winners. For many people, this is the time to shine, and it is where networks like HBO can really bring home a high number of awards. HBO won 17 Creative Arts Emmy’s as a network, which made them the big winner for Saturday.

Other winners on Saturday included Betty White for Best Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her appearance on Saturday Night Live. Best Guest Actor in a Drama Series went to John Lithgow for his turn on Dexter, and Best Cinematography for a One-Hour Show went to CSI. Best Variety Writing went to Colbert Report, Best Guest Actress on a Drama Series went to Ann-Margret for her turn on Law & Order: SVU, and the Best Children’s Program was awarded to Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie. It was quite an interesting night, but it’s also unfortunate that most of these winners won’t be featured during the primetime presentation on August 29.

2010 Fantasy Football Draft Tips - Quarterback Battles

It doesn’t get more exciting than watching two players battle head-to-head to determine who will enter the 2010 fantasy football season as a starting quarterback. The winner can earn a spot on many fantasy football teams as a No. 1 quarterback while the loser will spend much of the season on the waiver wire, an afterthought. Here are NFL quarterback battles to keep an eye on in the 2010 NFL preseason.

Sam Bradford vs. A.J. Feeley

St. Louis Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo named A.J. Feeley the starting quarterback but that is going to change rather quickly. The Rams are Feeley’s fifth team in ten years. He has only thrown for 1000 yards twice in his career and has only started two NFL games since 2004. Even in 2009, when Jake Delhomme was benched, Feeley never took a snap. If Spagnuolo believes Feeley gives the Rams the best chance to win, he is delusional.

Sam Bradford has never started an NFL game. The number one overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft out of the University of Oklahoma, Bradford is the quarterback of the future for the Rams. Bradford won the Heisman Trophy in 2008 but spent most of his 2009 season injured. He is 6’4″ and is one of the most intelligent quarterbacks coming out of the 2010 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Outlook: A.J. Feeley will start the season but Sam Bradford will be the starter in short order. Neither will put up big numbers in 2010, but Bradford is a great keeper league pick. Bradford will also make Steven Jackson more valuable down the line.

Jimmy Clausen vs. Matt Moore

When Jake Delhomme was benched in 2009, Matt Moore took hold of the starting job and never let go. In only his third year in the league, Moore threw for 1053 yards and eight touchdowns in his five starts for the Carolina Panthers. He threw all eight touchdowns in the team’s final four games with no interceptions. The fact the games were against New England, Minnesota, the Giants and New Orleans makes that feat even more impressive. He was rewarded for this great finish by watching his Panthers draft Jimmy Clausen with their first pick of the 2010 NFL Draft.

Jimmy Clausen is the brash young quarterback who lit up the Notre Dame record books during the otherwise disappointing past few years at the school. The Panthers offense is similar to the one ran at Notre Dame and he is being given every chance to win the job during preseason. Clausen in an interesting prospect and Moore will have to remain hot to hold onto his starting job.

Fantasy Outlook: Matt Moore deserves the starting job until he does something to prove his strong 2009 finish was a fluke. Clausen is a good handcuff pick for Moore owners and might be a good keeper league pick since he might end up starting in the next couple of years. For seasonal leagues, Moore is the only safe pick until further notice.

Brian Brohm vs. Trent Edwards vs. Ryan Fitzpatrick

The Buffalo Bills quarterback situation is a mess. Look at last year’s numbers, which sucked all around even with Terrell Owens on the team. Brian Brohm started one game for the Bills, threw for 146 yards and two interceptions. Trent Edwards, who entered the season as the starter, only started one game for the team after week 6. In his three years with the Bills, Edwards averaged 1800 yards a season with a 50/50 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Ryan Fitzpatrick moved into the starting lineup in week 6 and played the most of the three quarterbacks. In his first year at Buffalo, he threw for 1422 yards with nine touchdowns and ten interceptions.

Fantasy Outlook: Don’t touch any of these guys. If you have to take one, grab Edwards. While Fitzpatrick received the majority of the reps last year, new coordinator Chan Gailey might make a difference in the team’s passing game and Edwards is the most talented of the three gunslingers. Brian Brohm might be a good keeper league pick but its wait-and-see with the youngster.

Matt Leinart vs. Derek Anderson

Matt Leinart’s time has finally arrived. He faltered his starting position away a few years ago while Kurt Warner surged. He never regained his spot. That is not a surprise since the few times he did play, he couldn’t hit the Eiffel Tower if he was standing five-yards from it. The former USC star started 16 games during his four years in Arizona. His passer rating is a lowly 70.8 and he has 20 interceptions compared to 14 touchdowns.

Former Pro Bowl quarterback Derek Anderson didn’t fared much better at Cleveland following his breakout 2007 season. In 2009, Anderson started seven games and only threw for 888 yards. He lost three fumbles, threw 10 interceptions and only scored three touchdowns through the air. He hopes for a fresh start with a new offense and one of the best receivers in Larry Fitzgerald to haul in his passes.

Fantasy Outlook: This is bad. Owners of Larry Fitzgerald have to be kicking themselves watching these two guys competing to throw him balls. Matt Leinart is the better fantasy football choice but Derek Anderson can put up some monster numbers throwing the bombs to Fitzgerald too. Avoid both these guys until one of them proves they can actually complete passes to their own teammates.

Other quarterback battles to watch: Matt Hasselbeck vs. Charlie Whitehurst, Jake Delhomme vs. Seneca Wallace, Kyle Orton vs. Brady Quinn.

2010 Fantasy Football Draft Tips: Top 10 Running Backs

Running backs used to be the kings of fantasy football. Draft always centered around the runners and whoever owned Marshall Faulk or Priest Holmes always won their league.

Times have changed. Very few teams employ a single running back star to carry the load for their team. Only a handful of teams have an every down back that fantasy football owners can count on. That makes the quality running backs a premium but the rest are a step below the top quarterbacks in the league.

Here are the top 10 running backs to target in your 2010 fantasy football draft.

1. Adrian Peterson – Flip a coin – Adrian or Chris, Chris or Adrian? It doesn’t matter which running back you choose, either one is going to score you a lot of fantasy football points. Adrian Peterson is a workhorse back that is going to pound the yards and is always a threat to break a big one. With Sidney Rice going down with a preseason injury, the Vikings will need to rely on AD even more. With Chester Taylor not around to steal goal line carries, expect Peterson to run for around 1500 yards with 15 touchdowns. He catches the ball too, so he provides PPR leagues with an added bonus.

2. Chris Johnson – Chris Johnson exploded out of the gate in his rookie year, eclipsing 2,000 all-purpose yards. Don’t be surprised to see him getting close to the 2,000 yard mark just running the ball this year. He is almost a lock to break 2,000 all-purpose yards and will push Adrian Peterson for that top fantasy football running back spot. How much he scores is all going to depend on the continued maturation of quarterback Vince Young. That is where Adrian Peterson holds an advantage.

3. Maurice Jones Drew – MJD has come a long way since sharing running duties with Fred Taylor. He remains the Jacksonville Jaguars only true threat on offense and plays with confidence and maturity that is surprising for someone of his age (25). MJD may not run for as many yards as AD or CJ, but he score touchdowns at an alarming rate. Don’t be surprised it MJD breaks the 20 touchdown mark this season.

4. Ray Rice – Ray Rice stole the starting running back job from Willis McGahee and never looked back. The bruiser raced for 1,339 yards and 7 touchdowns in his second year as a pro and surpassed 2,000 all-purpose yards as well. He also led all running backs with 78 catches for 702 yards, more than most receivers in the NFL. Rice enters his third season as a fantasy football stud and is one of the most valuable players an owner can possess in 2010.

5. Cedric Benson – Cedric Benson has moved up this list for two reasons. First, Benson is the only true threat in the Bengals running game. While many teams have adopted the dual running back option in their offense, the Bengals will rely on Benson to pound out the yards. Second, the preseason has proven Terrell Owens is far from finished. If defenses have to defend against Owens, Chad Ochocinco and rookie Jermaine Gresham, Benson will find plenty of holes.

6. Michael Turner

7. Steven Jackson

8. Ryan Grant

9. Frank Gore

10. C.J. Spiller

2010 Fantasy Baseball: Relief Pitcher (RP) Comebacks

2010 Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide: Relief Pitcher (RP) Comebacks. Relief Pitcher (RP) Comeback selections are based on a standard scoring system in mixed AL/NL fantasy baseball leagues for the 2010 season. Scoring system stats include: wins, losses, saves, strikeouts, era, and whip – (W, L, SV, K, ERA, WHIP). IP = innings pitched during the 2009 season.

Relief Pitcher (RP) Comeback selections are based on players who have the potential to post a significant increase in pitching statistics during the 2010 season, as compared to their 2009 or previous season stats. Each players age for the 2010 season is provided after their name.

Top 5 – Relief Pitcher (RP) Comebacks 2010

#1 – Billy Wagner – Atlanta Braves (38)
Entering the 2010 season at age 38, the toughest obstacle for Wagner will likely be figuring out a way to stay fresh and not have his arm get fatigued over the course of a full season. However after an excellent showcase at the end of the 2009 season as a member of the Red Sox bullpen to finish the year, there is little doubt that Wagner still has the ability to pitch effectively as a relief pitcher in the majors. With the closers job his to lose in Atlanta, Wagner could very easily have an excellent first half of the 2010 season, but beware of a second half drop-off if he does in fact start to fatigue. Overall, a solid comeback year is definitely possible for Wagner during the 2010 season.
2009 Stats: 13 IP, 1 W, 1 L, 0 SV, 22 K, 1.98 ERA, 1.10 WHIP
2010 Stat Projections: 60 IP, 3 W, 2 L, 30 SV, 70 K, 2.60 ERA, 1.10 WHIP

#2 – Brandon Lyon – Houston Astros (30)
After a successful year as the 8th inning setup man for the Detroit Tigers during the 2009 season, Lyon was able to net himself a nice contract and an opportunity to take over the closers job in Houston for the 2010 season. With little fanfare surrounding Lyon as a fantasy baseball closer option, he could easily net whichever fantasy team decides to take a flyer on him, with an excellent return when the 2010 season is in the books. 25 plus saves and an ERA around 3.20 is definitely possible for Lyon in 2010.
2009 Stats: 78 IP, 6 W, 5 L, 3 SV, 57 K, 2.86 ERA, 1.11 WHIP
2010 Stat Projections: 70 IP, 2 W, 2 L, 28 SV, 55 K, 3.20 ERA, 1.20 WHIP

#3 – Kevin Gregg – Toronto Blue Jays (31)
While fantasy baseball managers enter the 2010 season remembering Gregg as the failed closer for the Cubs, very few if any remember that Gregg actually posted 16 saves, 41 strikeouts, and a 3.32 ERA over the first half of the season which included 40 innings pitched to begin the 2009 season. So with Gregg’s dreadful second half of the 2009 season likely the only thing on the minds of fantasy baseball managers entering the 2010 season, Gregg could very easily have a bounce back season in 2010 with his new job as the Blue Jays closer. Numbers in the range of 25-30 saves and a decent but not great ERA around 3.75 is very likely. As a relief pitcher who is often ranked around #50 on draft boards among all fantasy baseball RP options, Gregg is an excellent late round gamble that could pay solid dividends for fantasy baseball teams in 2010.
2009 Stats: 68 IP, 5 W, 6 L, 23 SV, 71 K, 4.72 ERA, 1.31 WHIP
2010 Stat Projections: 70 IP, 3 W, 5 L, 28 SV, 70 K, 3.70 ERA, 1.25 WHIP

#4 – Matt Capps – Washington Nationals (26)

#5 – JJ Putz – Chicago White Sox (33)
