2015 Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft – From the Future!

2015 Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft of the Future - Kenny Rogers

Your time machine just took you to March 20, 2015, where we’re about to hold a 2015 Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft with 12 writers from across the interwebbernet. (That’s what we call it in the future.) Unfortunately, you’re only able to stick around for the first four rounds (because you have to avoid meeting your grandchildren’s grandchildren, who are on their way to this conference room, right now!)

How can this mock draft from the future help you? You’ll get a sneak peek on what we think the best keepers are for the year 2013. (Remember 2013!?! That was awesome. I still can’t believe Adam Sandler won an Academy Award.)

Knowing who the best players are in 2013 is pretty easy – you just think back six months to 2012. But in order to look ahead to 2015, you have to think differently. You have to calculate stats and project numbers and understand physics, depreciation – and Spanish.

You have to be part cyborg.

So a dozen cyborg Fantasy Baseball writers are about to conduct this mock draft for a 12-team, 5×5 Rotisserie league, with the standard lineup: 2 C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, 5 OF, CI, MI, DH and 9 pitchers.

If you look back, you can look forward. Here’s our 2014 Fantasy Football Mock Draft that we held in 2012. I can’t wait to see the Jets trade for Jonathan Stewart!
