[FREE] Let’s concentrate on some of the top stars who failed to meet expectations last year because of injuries and are now major question marks heading into this year’s drafts. Let’s see where they are going right now in NFBC pay leagues and slice the crap from the player notes.

In standard leagues with 14 offensive starting hitters, each owner fills 6 unique positions (C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS and OF) in addition to the combined MI and CI positions via their draft or auction. The value of having players with multi-position eligibility on a reserve roster seems intuitive and has certainly been discussed anecdotally, but let’s take a look at just how valuable they might be and why.

Power sources Kyle Blanks and Mark Trumbo are both facing potential short-term marginalization, thanks to big offseason acquisitions by their current teams. We look at their 2012 seasons and three-year timelines, as well as Ruben Tejada’s keeper potential.

Late January means one thing to NFL fans: the Super Bowl. But to Scoresheet baseball fanatics, it means something entirely different: even though the beginning of spring training is still four weeks away, baseball season is here. The Scoresheet player lists have been released.

We extend our look at players with injuries that affected their 2011 performances --- and who were also affected by off-season activity and news. How do their 2012 and three-year outlooks project as of today?
Jan 27 2012 12:00am
While many of us sports fans were enjoying the NFL playoffs these last few weeks, the MLB Hot Stove League turned up the heat recently with a couple signings, a big trade and an international free-agent. All of this is well and good for Major League Baseball, but more importantly, how do these moves impact fantasy baseball (and NFBC) owners?

Here are some more names with shifting outlooks due to off-season player movement -- as well as injuries that impacted their 2011 performances and/or could put them behind the eight-ball to begin 2012. Once again, we consider their immediate and three-year outlooks.
Jan 20 2012 12:00am
Most managers in auction-format leagues can name a time in which they had either spent too much on a player during an auction, or conversely, didn't spend enough on that player who was coveted pre-auction. In today's column, we explore the concept of "auction fever," or the tendency to over-bid in auctions, and how it may affect the auction-format fantasy baseball manager.

Last week in this space, we focused on some names whose prospects have improved with offseason activity – and who could bring a relatively fast return depending on your league context and timeframe. This week we’ll focus on some players for whom opportunity appears to be the primary 2012 attraction – but who still merit some attention.

However, fantasy players can salvage one benefit from all the rancor over how to divide up millions (or even billions) of dollars. After all, at least some of the issues owners and players tend to squabble over, like competitive balance and freedom of player movement, are also concerns for fantasy leagues. This past fall's NBA negotiations yielded one such nugget for fantasy owners to consider: the concept of "amnesty," which found its way into the final collective-bargaining agreement and has already resulted in a couple star players finding new homes (like the pictured Baron Davis).

We’ll spend January offering up our takes on the impact that the 2011-12 offseason has had on KL options, both immediate and longer-term. Sure, the landscape still has time for more change prior to Opening Day, and some speculation is involved – but KL owners who are active now should pay attention. The names listed below were all mentioned in our "dynasty reload" series -- and their immediate opportunities have improved markedly since then.
