2016 Steamer Position Review – RP

Steamer projections are now available and we’ve converted them to Ottoneu scoring (FGPTS) for 2016.  It’s now to time dig into these projections position by position to see if we can find anything interesting for the upcoming season.  Each Steamer projection sheet includes full projected stats for 2016 along with post-arbitration Ottoneu Average $ Values (FGPTS) and custom 2016 $ values by Ottoneu mastermind Justin Vibber.

2016 Steamer Position Review – 3B

  • Right off the bat, it’s pretty clear that Steamer loves some Kris Bryant in 2016.  Sitting just atop reigning AL MVP Josh Donaldson is the reigning NL ROY Bryant with 1.44 P/PA and 939 FGPTS projected.  Bryant’s OPS (.864) and wOBA (.371) pace the 3rd base field next year according to Steamer, and it’s reasonable Bryant should get a bump up your own list anyway because of his OF eligibility.  It’s tough to go wrong between Donaldson and Bryant as your top 3B pick in 2016, but Steamer is a believer in the youngster and expects him to carbon copy his 2015 season.  Post-arbitration it’s likely you own a ~ $30 Bryant.  No worries…he’s worth it.

2016 Steamer Position Review – SS

Steamer projections are now available and we’ve converted them to Ottoneu scoring (FGPTS) for 2016.  It’s now to time dig into these projections position by position to see if we can find anything interesting for the upcoming season.  Each Steamer projection sheet includes full projected stats for 2016 along with post-arbitration Ottoneu Average $ Values (FGPTS) and custom $ values by Ottoneu mastermind Justin Vibber.

The $ values are based on early versions of Steamer for 2016 and represent a snapshot in time. Use them to inform your valuation of various players but check back often for updates and new projection systems.

We’ll start with SS.  You can find the full SS projection list here.

2016 Steamer Position Review – SS

  • Anyone surprised to see Machado top the list? You shouldn’t be.  There aren’t many players in the game that increased their value more than Machado did in 2015 with a combination of a breakout .370 wOBA and new-found SS eligibility.  Don’t worry, we’ll get to Correa, but if for some reason you find yourself with the choice of drafting Machado or Correa, don’t think too hard about it: Machado is projected to lead the position in 2016 with 27 HR and the only SS Steamer projects with an OPS over .800.  He should sit comfortably at #1 in total FGPTS (909) by the end of the season and Justin looks justified in valuing him > $40 at auction.
