9 Steals for Your Fantasy Baseball Auction Draft


The time has come to draft your MLB fantasy team. Just the same as the guys who take the field, you know a long season awaits. You also know that a high level performance will have you at the top of the standings when the season finally comes to an end.

Like most, you go into your fantasy draft with dreams of pulling in the best talent. Of course, you realize you will be lucky to draft a couple of the best players in the league. After all, you only have so much money to spend (assuming you are part of an auction draft).

You will eventually ask yourself this question: how can I save on my payroll while still giving myself a chance to take home the top prize?

At SurePayroll, we are here to help you answer this question. After all, payroll is our bread and butter.

Below, we’ll examine 9 players (one at each position) – based on auction values provided by ESPN – and tell you which ones offer the “most bang for your buck.”

Reminder: this is not a list of the best picks for your fantasy team, but rather the players that provide the best fantasy baseball auction draft values (cheap price, above average performance).

  1. Catcher: Russell Martin. He may not be suiting up for the Pirates this season, but that doesn’t mean Martin won’t be able to perform at his 2014 level, which was the best of his career. For $11 in an ESPN fantasy league, Martin will give you the production you need from behind the plate.
  2. First base. Adam LaRoche. Playing for the White Sox this season, the 35-year-old hopes to perform at a high level again in 2015. He finished last season with 26 homeruns and 92 RBI’s. He only batted .259, but as far as power numbers are concerned, LaRoche has potential. Auction value: $14.
  3. Second base. Jedd Gyorko. Is 2015 the year Gyorko finally breaks through? If 2014 was any indication, the answer is yes. In a season where he only played in 111 games, the power hitting second baseman finished with 10 homeruns and 51 RBI’s. Auction value: $12.
  4. Third base. Martin Prado. A definite risk, but well worth the money. Prado batted .282 last season with 12 homeruns and 58 RBI’s. Auction value: $13.
  5. Shortstop. Javier Baez. This position can make or break your fantasy team. Baez is a guy to keep an eye on. In 52 games last season, this Chicago Cub belted 9 homeruns and 20 RBI’s. If he breaks out this season, you could benefit in a big way. Auction value: $12.
  6. Outfield. Brett Gardner. Playing for the Yankees, its lineup full of strong bats will only help Gardner in 2015. Last year, he was good for 17 homeruns and 58 RBI’s. This year could be even better. Auction value: $17.
  7. Designated hitter. Kennys Vargas. This young gun, suiting up for the Minnesota Twins, hit 9 homeruns and accounted for 38 RBI’s in 2014. Best yet, he put up these numbers in 53 games. Auction value: $3.
  8. Starting pitcher. Jake Arrieta. The Chicago Cubs are expected to be much improved in 2015, with a lot of its success hinging on Arrieta and the rest of the pitching staff. He won 10 games last year, striking out 167 and only walking 41. Auction value: $16.
  9. Relief pitcher. Zach Britton. The 27-year-old did big things for the Orioles last season. In addition to 37 saves and three wins, he tallied 62 strikeouts. Auction value: $14.

The Time has Come

Your MLB fantasy draft is right around the corner. In addition to the “big name studs” that you add to your lineup, don’t overlook the nine guys detailed above. They are primed to provide high value in 2015.
