Value. It's all about value. It's always about value.
It's a strategy of mine that has been in place for years, and I always begin this column by explaining what I mean by it: Value is identifying where your opinions on players most differ from everyone else's, allowing you to acquire that player at a significant discount (or scratch him off your list).
Injecting these opinions into your fantasy baseball team is what makes it yours. You are absolutely entitled to believe whatever you want about any baseball player. Just make sure it's rooted in strong research of the player's skills.
