Opening Day is approaching and there's no better way to prepare for your fantasy draft than by using Rotoworld’s Draft Guide. We have strategy articles that include pick-by-pick analysis of a 29-round expert draft, incredibly in-depth, short- and long-term looks at the top 100 prospects, a breakdown of sleepers to target and busts to avoid, advice tailored for keeper leaguers and a collection of the top beat reporters answering questions about the teams they cover every day during the six-month marathon.
Plus, we’ve got many new columns that are sure to help you on draft day. Ballpark Factors ranks and analyzes how each stadium benefits or hurts hitters and pitchers, while The New Math takes a look at some advanced statistical metrics that will help you identify sleepers and players to stay away from. And we continue to add new columns and new mock drafts as Spring Training rolls on, including Position Showdowns, in which our writers explain why they'd choose one player over another at each position when they are very close in ADP.

As usual, we have in-depth profiles with detailed and constantly updated statistical projections for nearly 1,000 players. From first-round superstars to little-known Single-A prospects, we'll get you up to speed on everyone and everything you need to know.
We have all-encompassing cheat sheets for AL-only, NL-only and mixed leagues, plus our trademark positional tiers that take those cheat sheets to another level, plus our highly effective Position Tiers, which shows where the dropoff is at each position. And to cap things off, we have full depth charts and top-10 prospects for each team and projected leaderboards for each league. And like everything else, these are continuously updated.
