Three Things We Know After The Start of the MLB Season

When a season is 6 months long, it might seem a bit ridiculous to start making projections this early. After all, more than 150 games still remain for all the teams in Major League Baseball. With that being said, there are millions out there in daily fantasy baseball leagues trying to identify not only players poised for a breakout year, but World Series sleepers. Here are 3 early trends that probably will hold up for the entire season.

Kris Bryant Hype Will Only Grow
The Chicago Cubs actually have some pretty solid talent on the roster in 2015. Jon Lester is their new ace, and they have young performers in daily fantasy baseball leagues like Starlin Castro and Anthony Rizzo poised to be possible All-Stars. However, the most talked about player on the team is not even in Chicago at the moment. Bryant was controversially sent down to the minor leagues after an outstanding spring training. Basically, the move was made due to the fact that it saves Chicago money in the long run. Between billboards near Wrigley Field and minor league updates on ESPN, the hype isn’t going away.

Kansas City Is Here To Say
A lot of people around baseball saw the Kansas City Royals as a nice story in 2014. They were able to put together a pretty good run in the playoffs last year, making it all the way to the World Series before losing to the San Francisco Giants. However, not a lot of people really gave them the credit they deserved. The winter wasn’t especially kind to them, as they did lose their ace pitcher James Shields, but they have been able to stay competitive early on this year. In fact, they are the best team in baseball through the 1st few games. The American League Central looks to be pretty good, but Kansas City is not a one-hit wonder.

Aging Hitters Still Have Value
Performance enhancing drugs allowed older players to stay relevant for longer period of time. No one is going to say that they are officially gone from the game of baseball, but testing has certainly limited things a bit. Once that became the norm, older players started to regress pretty early. However, people should not be so quick to write off guys in 2015. Adrian Gonzalez, Miguel Cabrera, Nelson Cruz and Ian Kinsler are just a few guys well into their 30s performing at a high level. Their injury risks might be a little bit higher, but they still have value for their teams.

Hey, just a quick question, where do you get so much information on dfs? I mean, I have read everything in the Beginners Guide from FantasySportsDaily, but I would like to know some more places, where I could get my information. If you could share some websites I would be very thankful!
