Fantasy Baseball: 5 Rookies to Watch in 2018
Last year was a terrific one for rookies in Major League Baseball, with a number of top quality studs making a huge impact, whether we're talking in real life or fantasy baseball.
Aaron Judge won the AL Rookie of the Year and almost took home AL MVP honors thanks to a 52-homer, 8.2 fWAR season. Cody Bellinger set a National League record for dingers with 39 en route to winning Rookie of the Year honors. And then there were players like Paul DeJong, Andrew Benintendi, Matt Olson, Rhys Hoskins, Trey Mancini, who also made a big contributions to their teams in 2017.
It'll be hard for this year's rookie crop to top last year's group, but these five rookies have the best chance to do just that in 2018. All of them should be on your fantasy radar as you get ready for season-long drafts in the next few weeks.
