Build your optimal Draft Day roster with BABS Game Plan 2020

Winning is all about profit! In 2020, there are less expensive, comparably-skilled alternatives up and down the draft board, for players like Justin Verlander, Aaron Judge, Nolan Arenado, even Mike Trout!

In 2019, BABS said we could draft…
•  Charlie Morton (ADP 119) instead of Blake Snell (30)
•  Ketel Marte (220) instead of Lorenzo Cain (66)
•  Matt Olson (109) instead of Khris Davis (45)
•  Austin Meadows (186) instead of Tommy Pham (61)
•  Eloy Jimenez (117) instead of Vlad Guerrero Jr. (46)
•  Zack Greinke (66) instead of Aaron Nola (25)
•  D.J. LeMahieu (265) instead of Robinson Cano (123)
•  Mitch Garver (435) instead of Francisco Mejia (249)
•  and on and on…


Ron Shandler’s Broad Assessment Balance Sheet (BABS) uncovers the variances between player skill and draft behavior, which is the secret to fantasy baseball success. Yes, the real Mike Trout won’t be waiting for you in Round 3, but there is another player with a comparable skills profile who can be drafted that late. BABS helps you uncover these profit opportunities and provides all the tools you need to build the optimal fantasy roster in 2020.

BABS Game Plan 2020 gets you all this:
  1. BABS ratings, asset group rankings and cheat sheets for 2020 drafts: The foundation of your draft efforts — four updates through the end of March.
  2. Dozens of articles that uncover your best targets and players to avoid.

  4. Player history scans: Trend analyses of the performance, marketplace (ADPs and AAVs) and BABS ratings for the most interesting players.
  5. Asset group analyses: A review of players with comparable skills profiles and how the marketplace is ranking them. Your biggest profit sources!
  6. Strategies for the upcoming season: BABS puts a unique spin on how you should approach roster construction in 2020.
