BOOKMARK ME: Late Additions to Your Fantasy Draft

Baseball season is right around the corner so that means Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball is as well. I say it every year, and I will say it again this year, I really expect and intend to actually pay attention to my team(s) this year. I have been doing some research and I wanted to bring you guys a couple primers and bookmarks for the draft. I have specifically been looking at getting that top notch talent in the last five or so rounds to put your team over the edge in certain categories. I hope this helps and I hope you all enjoy the post.

If you need speed Alcides Escobar, BJ Upton, Dalton Pompey, Norichika Aoki, Anthony Gose and Emilion Bonifacio should add plenty of stolen bases to your team in 2015.

If you need a closer it may be wise to pick up one of Joe Nathan and Joakim Soria from Detroit along with Ken Giles, Tyler Clippard and Luke Gregerson.

Speaking of pitching there is usually an abundance at the end of a draft and the names of Marcus Stroman, Drew Smyly, Carlos Martinez, Nathan Eovaldi, Kevin Gausman, Tony Cingrani, Jake Odorizzi, Trevor Bauer and Yusmeiro Petit will likely be left on the board this time around.

If you need hitting late look at Javier Baez, Adam Lind, Allen Craig, Yasmany Tomas and Gregory Polanco. I have seen Joc Pederson make a lot of these lists but I cannot see him making THAT much of an impact in LA at the bottom of the order. I was wrong once though.

If you need power you should definitely take a look at Ryan Howard, Jedd Gyorko, Josh Reddick, Khris Davis, Travis d’Arnaud and bigger seasons from Josh Hamilton and Pedro Alvarez.
