FanGraphs+ never went away — we update it throughout the year with content posted on ESPN Insider — but it’s time for the annual. We’ll be publishing the full FG+ arsenal in just over a week.
Once again, we’ll have over 1000 player capsules, sussing the fantasy value of everything from the studdiest stud to the LOOGYiest LOOGY. This year, we’ll add auction values to those capsules, and FG+ subscribers will see those values on the projections leaderboards. And below you’ll see our table of contents — all long, research-driven and analysis-heavy pieces that walk the line between fantasy and real baseball work.
As a special preview, available to current FanGraphs+ subscribers as well as ottoneu players, we’re publishing Chad Young’s piece, Auction Values For All Three ottoneu Formats, today as a free bonus. Hey, it’d be kind of unfair to let some ottoneu users in on the fun while excluding others, wouldn’t it? Deliciously unfair.
The staff has been working hard on this, and we hope you enjoy!
