Fantasy Risers and Fallers
Players you need to start taking earlier, and players to avoid on Draft Day.
I know many of you are getting ready for your drafts, so I thought today would be a good day to discuss players we're high on and players we are down on. Al and Scott did just that in this morning's podcast. You can hear about their picks (Ventura, Moustakas, Brad Miller, etc.) below.
Here are just a few players that I would have put on my lists of Risers and Fallers ...
Giancarlo Stanton: If I can get him in the 3rd round I'd be pumped. Jon Heyman wrote a feature on Stanton earlier this week. I think his attitude will be better and he'll mash. I also think he'll be better in Points League because he will walk a lot.
Ian Desmond: I don't do rankings and you should definitely trust Scott and Al with that stuff, but if I did do rankings Desmond would be my #3 Shortstop. I think there is plenty of risk with every Top 5 Shortstop except for Desmond. I still think he can improve too.
Game of Thrones Season 3 (NO SPOILERS PLEASE): I am four episodes into Season 3. It's much better than Season 2. I'm afraid I can't even read the comments on this blog because someone will ruin Season 3!
Alexi Ogando: I drafted him yesterday. He may not make the rotation. Oops
Game of Thrones Season 2: If Season 2 were a Game of Thrones family it would clearly be the Lannisters.
