After a few years' layoff, I’m playing fantasy baseball again in 2024. Not only is this league quite a bit different from the one I used to play, the online resources for player research have changed over the past few years. This post collects some things that seem useful to me.

  • Fangraphs has grown and changed quite a bit.
  • Baseball Prospectus still seems good, but a lot of it is paywalled and I’m not sure I think it’s worth it yet.
  • Fantasy Pros has some good resources, but I’m not convinced how good this model is for a highly customized scoring system.
  • Baseball Monster looks helpful. I like the way it automatically highlights outliers.
  • Roto baller is new to me.
  • NFBC publishes some good ADP rankings that seem like they’ll be of limited usefulness to me, but I want to remember the site for later.
  • Beyond the box score used to be helpful. Maybe it still is?
  • High Heat Stats seems to be where baseball-reference bloggers went.
  • Baseball Reference is great, of course, for non-blog content.
  • Retrosheet has all the historical play-by-play data I’ve ever wanted. Not that useful for fantasy, but great for settling arguments between fantasy players.
  • Inside the Pen looks like it’ll be useful for in-season details about relief pitchers.

Also, pour one out for RotoGuru and DailyBaseballData.

I think the thing I want most is probably the paperback Baseball Prospectus. But that may not be gettable before I need to make decisions about keepers on the team I’ll be inheriting.

I’m trying on Kev Quirk’s “100 Days To Offload” idea. You can see details and join yourself by visiting

This is day #2.
