30 teams in 60 days of quarantine: Texas Rangers fantasy preview
This series of fantasy baseball articles was intended to be something to pass the 30 days without DFS. Well, it looks like the wait may be longer for my fortes, the NBA and MLB. I’m staggering these to last us 60 days without DFS now, and it looks like it could go even longer. The last DFS slate was on March 11th.
Most of you, like me, have played DFS for quite some time. We have never seen anything like this before. A bare lobby. No upcoming contests. E-Sports touts are in hog heaven. Even most DFS touts are trying to become E-Sports touts. It’s nuts!
Most of you, also like me, still play season-long fantasy baseball. Some for money. Some not. Some just because it’s the only interaction you have with some friends anymore. Whatever the case, we can use this break in DFS to get us polished up for our fantasy baseball drafts, whenever those may be. We started at the bottom and are slowly moving up. The Texas Rangers were 17th in wins last year with 78.
The Rangers lost Profar, but they didn’t really need him. The story of their offseason was the heist of Kluber from Cleveland. Even if Emmanuel Clase turns out to be Mariano Rivera, the Indians might still lose this deal.
Here we will examine the Texas Rangers projected lineup and rotation, and who to draft and in what general spot. We will also take a look at prospects that could make their debuts and have a fantasy impact in 2020. The 2019 stats are in parentheses. Let’s get started!
