Build your best 2021 roster with the BABS GAME PLAN

Winning is about one thing only — drafting profit! Why invest heavily in a first-rounder like Gerrit Cole when another pitcher with a similar skills/risk profile can be drafted in Round 4?

In fact, there are DOZENS of less expensive, comparably-skilled alternatives up and down the draft board in 2021. Find later round options for early rounders like Pete Alonso, Trevor Bauer, Bo Bichette, Jack Flaherty, Lucas Giolito, Bryce Harper, Manny Machado and many more. 

Ron Shandler’s Broad Assessment Balance Sheet (BABS) is all about leveraging the variances between players’ true skill and how the public is drafting them, which is the secret to fantasy baseball success. BABS helps you uncover these profit opportunities, provides a draft plan and all the tools you need to build the optimal fantasy roster in 2021.

BABS Game Plan 2021 gets you all this:
  1. BABS ratings, asset group rankings and cheat sheets for 2021 drafts: The foundation of your draft efforts — four updates through the end of March.
  2. The new FISH List, which integrates each player’s skills profile and his ADP into a single, optimal draft ranking.
  3. Dozens of articles that uncover your best targets and players to avoid.
  4. Custom reports from the BABS Database: If you are in an AL/NL-only league, want lists sorted alphabetically, by ADP or position, the database can meet your needs.
  5. Player history scans: Trend analyses of the performance, marketplace (ADPs and AAVs) and BABS ratings for the most interesting players.
  6. Asset group analyses: A review of the deeper skills profiles and how the marketplace is handing you prime profit opportunities.
  7. Strategies for the upcoming season: BABS puts a unique spin on how you should approach auctions, snake drafts, points, H2H and salary cap games in 2021.
  8. Mailbags: Ask your questions — We’ll select the most interesting posers for insightful answers.
  9. Members-only message boards: It’s your community of really smart BABSians. Ask questions, offer insights, vent – it’s your neighborhood.
  10. BABS ratings for RotoLab software: Run your BABS draft with the best software on the market. Once you try it, you’ll never go back. (Only members get the unlock key. Software sold separately.)
  11. BABS minor league ratings: To provide additional insight into the deeper ends of the player pool, we have BABS ratings for nearly every Double-A and Triple-A player (2019 ratings).
  12. BABS Baseball leagues: This innovative Rotisserie-style format offers 10-team leagues with 50-man rosters and BABS-relevant categories.
