Chris Denorfia, Seth Smith, and the power of PT

Two Padres outfielders were expected to be only fill-ins in the preseason, but when you fill in for oft-injured guys, you fill in A LOT.

Chris Johnson becomes the newest New York addition

The Jets have spent the offseason trying to get something, anything from its offensive skill players, with Wednesday's signing of Chris Johnson the latest attempt. We break down the fantasy implications.

Luke Gregerson -- The Closer Who Wasn't Owned

The new A's closer has flown under the radar because he was a middle reliever, but he's not one anymore.

Closer Rankings: Who for now? Who for later?

Heck, I don't know what you're looking for by clicking here. So I'll offer everything! I'm delightful.

Jordan Schafer can't possibly be worse than Upton

If you're in a deep league, Schafer might be up for a job, and he'll get you some stolen bases.

Abraham Almonte: Sometimes all you need is a job

The Mariners outfielder wasn't a big prospect coming up, but he has something a lot of his peers don't -- a chance.

Closer Rankings: The most volatile position

While you can hold out, wait and see with a lot of positions, closers come and go so quickly, you can't necessarily wait.

Ryan Ludwick might be the healthy secret weapon

It takes an injury for us to forget about a guy for a while. Ryan Ludwick is barely owned in fantasy this year, but could return more value than that.

Jonathan Villar: Elvis Andrus for dumpster divers

The Astros shortstop does a lot of stuff the Rangers guy does, and he does it all way cheaper.

Closer Rankings: A lot can change in spring

If you drafted early in spring training, there's no telling WHAT your closer situation is like now.

Fantasy Baseball 2014: Day-by-day

As we get set for the regular season to start, let's look at what might happen every day.

What changes for the free-agent running backs?

We take a look at the new (or old) roles of the running backs who have already signed this offseason.

Position Rankings: Closers for 2014

A lot of new names will get saves this year, but let's look at the guys who have the jobs right now.

Justin Verlander is still Justin Verlander

It was a down year for the Tigers hurler in 2013, but only by his impossible standards. He's still a top pitcher.

Ubaldo Jimenez: Tread lightly

The new Orioles hurler is coming off a ridiculous second half. How much of it is for real?

What if Jimmy Graham gets designated a receiver?

The Saints tight end says he's a wide receiver. What if the NFL agrees?

Equivalent Fantasy Average: Outfielders

Yeah, maybe that old position we've always "known" is so deep isn't anymore?

Peter Bourjos: How the glove can help in fantasy

The new Cardinal center fielder will always play, which ought to keep him valuable, even if he's only a mediocre hitter.

Fantasy Forethought: Top 200 of 2014

We all miss fantasy football. So let's start thinking about it now!

NL-Only Analysts League: Auction Draft Analysis

Daniel joined up with the CBS auction Thursday, and he looks at a revamped-on-the-fly strategy.

Equivalent Fantasy Average: Third Basemen

Want some positional tiers? Then look no further than third base.

Brett Lawrie -- Young, brittle, and room to grow

The Blue Jays third basemen hasn't managed to stay healthy, but he's still young enough that we might see a wealth of development yet.

Pedro Alvarez: The Jeff Goldblum of third base

Alvarez might only do one thing well, but he does his one thing as well as anyone in the game. Reminds you of a famous actor, no?

Equivalent Fantasy Average: Shortstops

The top shortstops haven't exactly been paragons of health in recent years. How does that reality alter their projected statline?

Can Brad Miller shoot up the shortstop rankings?

The Seattle shortstop was very productive in his half-season in 2013; if he can parlay that into full-season numbers, there might be another big bat in the Mariners lineup.

Equivalent Fantasy Average: Learning as we go

Someone pointed out a bit of an issue with the math in my new metric. So I calculated again! I'm nothing if not open to change.

Equivalent Fantasy Average: Second Basemen

The super-top guys at second base might not be as super-top as they've been in the past.

Second Baseman Profile: Jurickson Profar

The rookie we saw in 2013 wasn't the rookie we'd been led to expect, but now that he's a full-time starter, what might we see this season?

Second Baseman Profile: Daniel Murphy

The Mets second baseman had his best year in 2013, including a big jump in steals. Can he maintain it?

First Baseman Profile: Matt Adams

The lefty slugger enters 2014 as the Cardinals' likely first baseman. Will he exit 2014 in the same role?
