"These projections are not perfect and there will always be hits and misses within them but they give us valuable insight into what the stats are trying to tell us. They are unbiased and unmerciful."
It took years of diving deep into the numbers but I eventually found my own set of benchmarks that let me identify the undervalued starting pitchers for the upcoming season.
Well well well, if it isn't my yearly post on which starting pitchers to target and which you may want to avoid in your fantasy baseball drafts.
If you were sad that I didn't publish my sleeper pitcher picks in 2020, you can smile again because I've run the numbers and have my picks ready for 2021.
My method for finding sleeper hitters involves a data-driven system that sets various benchmarks for players and it coldly tells me who is destined to break out this season based on that data.
It's obvious that the best owners, time after time, are the ones who don't panic once it gets later in the draft and the familiar names are off the board. These great owners are bummed that the draft ended
The projections likely will not predict a sleeper who surprises everyone but they will give you a good idea of which players are being undervalued, perhaps due to public perception about them.
Winning your fantasy drafts isn't just about finding super sleepers though. It's also about just finding good value players to fill your team with.
