Chris Welsh, host of the In This League Podcast, is with us as we shine a light on our top 10 favorite bounce-back players for 2021! Despite the velocity dip, Patrick Corbin (4:57) may deserve the benefit of the doubt. What was more surprising for Ketel Marte (15:13): the 2019 breakout or the 2020 slump? Why should fantasy managers feel compelled to buy back into Kris Bryant and Javier Baez (29:29) this year? The guys later dig int...

Joe Pisapia and Dan Harris are back for the second podcast of the week! The duo discusses the Fernando Tatis Jr. mega extension (2:27) before diving into Joe's LABR draft strategy. Is Trea Turner worth a first-round selection? Trends we noticed were how necessary it is to get an ace early (16:10), that there's value in UTIL-only players like Nelson Cruz and JD Martinez (19:30), and how outfield is actually kind of shallow (...

Justin Mason joins the show and we're talking about the first round of fantasy drafts. While you're going to find talent up and down Round 1, how exactly should these players be ranked? Before we get into things, what does Trevor Bauer's move mean for his ranking (10:35)? Should Fernando Tatis be the No.1 pick (29:55) and should Jacob deGrom be taken in the top 3(31:20)?

Alex Fast of Pitcher List joins us on today's podcast for fun and insightful analysis on our 12 favorite late-round upside starting pitchers! Will Zach Davies (13:44) prove that his career-best production from last season was no fluke? Is Jake Odorizzi (25:19) primed to regain his 2019 form? Will the park upgrade and the possibility of more reliance on his sinker help Dane Dunning (30:13) achieve his upside, or is Texas' te...

We're joined by Frank Stampfl of CBS Sports to discuss our latest rankings for 10 notable players who have moved to new teams so far this offseason. Are Yu Darvish's (7:19) remarkable 2020 numbers sustainable in San Diego in 2021 and is Blake Snell's (14:49) move to the Padres an upgrade for him, or will his extra innings volume actually increase his injury risk?

We're joined by Ariel Cohen, creator of the ATC projection system, to break down which guys fantasy baseball managers should be scooping up before or soon after Opening Day. Is Tyler Rogers (6:31) primed to be the Giants' closer and does Elieser Hernandez (28:14) have the stuff to be the Marlins' top SP or will his unimpressive fastball and inability to prevent hard contact doom him? The duo spends the final third of th...

With roughly three weeks to go until the start of the season, we team up with Chris Meaney of Fade the Noise to share insight into our favorite draft targets. Matt Olson (6:19) may be one of the more underrated pure power hitters in the game, Andrew Benintendi (21:03) might be primed to bounce back after a disappointing 2019 campaign, and Jorge Polanco (30:39) appears to be extremely undervalued considering his strong metrics and t...

Today we talk with Al Melchior, host of The Athletic's Fantasy Baseball in 15 Podcast, about which players will see their values rise or fall the most because of the 60-game season. Avisail Garcia's (7:20) and Dylan Carlson's (23:51) values both drastically increase due to the universal DH and a schedule filled with pitcher-friendly ballparks is primed to hurt Willy Adames (33:02). Later on, we examine closer situations...

Stay tuned unti...
