Longshot stat leaders, 2024

The time has come!

It's an annual tradition here at the Speculator, where we spend Opening Day Eve putting a bow on our draft season coverage with some longshot league stat leaders. In this space we're digging deep—it's not at all interesting to predict a Ronald Acuña MVP or another Spencer Strider Cy Young—so while "longshot" in the title is a loose term, we'll keep this list to anybody going outside the Top 200 picks in NFBC Main Event drafts.

And don't worry, these out-on-a-limb predictions shouldn't have influenced your draft day plans anyway. Most (if not all) have already received some Speculator pub at some point. Thanks for following along and leaving comments here throughout draft season; hopefully some of our 20% plays help...
