5 Ways to Start Preparing For 2016 Fantasy Baseball Now
It’s tough to get too excited about the 2016 Fantasy Baseball season right now, considering we’re still a month away from pitchers and catchers (why don’t we say “catchers and pitchers” which is alphabetically correct!). Plus, the AFC and NFC Championship Games are coming up this weekend, with the NBA All-Star Game just around the corner.
But now is a great time to start catching up on the 2016 Fantasy Baseball offseason, so that when you do start to get into draft season, you’ll be able to concentrate more on strategy, rather than player values.

So we’re going to share some of our favorite spots for you to bookmark and check every couple days!
It makes sense that MLB.com has the best transaction tracker out there, but I especially like this one also because of the sortability. You can see which players are still out there as free agents, or sort by team or position.
Jon Heyman rules the baseball world in my opinion, so I’m partial to this trade tracker. You’ll get things broken down by day, so it’s easy to see where you last left off.
These two articles give you a quick look at who is affected the most and where these players rank at their positions, as well as where they’ll likely be drafted in coming Fantasy drafts.
You can sign up for their free email report, or check this web page each day, to see which prospects are rising or falling in winter league play in Venezuelan and Puerto Rican Leagues.
In my opinion, there is no website that has grown into a more useful tool over the past two or three years than RosterResource.com. As soon as a signing or a trade happens, these guys update their depth charts and projected lineup/rotations, allowing you to get an idea of where a player fits into his new team’s plans.
In true FSTA fashion, they use 13 teams, which makes absolutely no sense to me. So much for being relatable to all those people in Mixed 12-team Rotisserie leagues. But hey, at least you can see who goes earlier than others. Check out @NandoDiFino's team! See which three pitchers he took in the first three rounds.
Enjoy this handful of links and get your 2016 Fantasy Baseball general manager’s hat ready!
