Hitter or pitcher? Why Shohei Ohtani’s fantasy value is best on the mound

texans_015

Hey hey, Shohei! You’re No. 1 on the Player Rater! Through one week — OK, 11 days (or the length of the ESPN first “week”) — no star in fantasy baseball has shined brighter than Shohei Ohtani’s, the Los Angeles Angels’ hitter/pitcher. And he’s worthy of that dual label, having already provided sizable contributions on …

That’s how rare the sightings are of injury-free quarterbacks under the age of 30 who hit the market with no string attached a la a franchise tag.

Mind you, Minnesota’s version of the Pequod spent a fortune in bait to net Cousins. Guaranteeing 100 percent of a player’s salary (or awfully close depending on the contract’s final wording) is unchartered waters for any NFL team since the current free-agency system began in 1993. Beyond the gamble on player performance, it’s especially risky …

AJ Mass: In a points league, I don’t think there’s as much urgency to grab most of these starters at this proposed point of the draft. In a vacuum, at least from a pure value standpoint, relative to hitters, the entirety of this SP sextet probably can wait a minimum of five more rounds before …

Carolina hasn’t had one since 2009, when both Williams and Stewart broke 1,000 yards. That’s the longest active drought by a team in the NFL, according to ESPN Stats & Information. The additional cap space could help the Panthers re-sign All-Pro left guard Andrew Norwell and defensive tackle Star Lotulelei. While Hurney said it was …

Moving to Boston really should not harm these fantastic numbers, by the way.

Despite the lack of power, the Red Sox finished 10th in runs scored across both leagues last season, with a deep crew of batsmen who reach base. If Martinez hits another 45 home runs, he could drive home more than 120 runs. Let us say 35 and 100 are safer benchmarks, considering the propensity for …
