2014 Fantasy Baseball — 7 Stories to Watch This OffSeason

The Fantasy Football season is in full throttle right now and you may be managing your team(s) to championship greatness as you read this. However, the 2014 Fantasy Baseball season is closing in and fanatics like me, who monitor the sport year round by tuning into MLB network and reading the Fantasy blogs, want to stay informed. Things always happen quickly! For instance, Prince Fielder was literally just traded for Ian Kinsler. 2014 Fantasy Season Storylines There is still plenty of time before the 2014 Fantasy Baseball season starts, but for those wondering what and who to keep tabs on during this offseason, here are a few storylines to follow. 1.

Upton It may be a little farfetched to say B.J. Upton was the most disappointing Fantasy player last season, but he was definitely in the 15 worst. No one could have expected a line of BA: .184, 9 HR, 30 R, and 26 RBI, 12 SB. Upton always had a propensity for striking out and a career batting average around .250, but even with those strikeouts and BA, he at least still supplied power and stole bases. That did not happen last season. These 2013 numbers were career lows across the board. The excitement that followed the Upton brothers arriving in Atlanta waned quickly last year. Although, I can see B.J. finding his swagger again...
