FANTASY BASEBALL HISTORY:
BEAST DOME NATION.
For the third straight season, I was the highest Ranked Expert on FantasyPros representing the HR Leader.
2013. I ranked Chris Davis way ahead of the pack. He finished with the MLB Lead 53 HRs.
2014. I ranked Nelson Cruz way ahead of the Expert pack. He finished with the MLB Lead 40 HRs.
2015. I once again picked Chris Davis way ahead of the pack, who finished today with 2 Bombs to give him 47 HRs.
These are not 1st Round Picks. Chris Davis was a 5th/6th Round Pick this year as all Experts gave up on the slugger for no reason after hitting 53 bombs in 2013. Nelson Cruz was a 8th/9th Round Pick during the 2014 draft as he moves to Baltimore coming off of FOUR straight seasons with under 30 HRs.
Chris Davis was outside of the Top 12 1B options in 2013. I saw his talent from Day 1 when he was with the Rangers and he was even in the Waiver Wire Guide during the 2012 season when he started to get regular playing time. You can use the BEAST DOME search on the right hand side to find all of my Chris Davis content.
This is likely a record that will never be BEAT on FantasyPros, and next year I will look to extend my streak.
My Projected Finish for Chris Davis (49 HR) was only 2 HRs too many, but we all know he will be at it again no matter where he ends up.
