Jason has been helping fantasy owners since 1999 at RotoJunkie, Fanball, Baseball Prospectus and now here at RotoWire. He covers the Tampa Bay Rays at You can hear Jason weekly on many of the Sirius/XM Fantasy channel offerings throughout the season as well as on the Towers of Power Baseball Hour Podcast on iTunes. He was selected as the Fantasy Baseball Writer of the Year by FSWA in 2013.

Throughout the 2013 draft season, we all combed through projections looking at what players would be in the coming season according to the braintrust here at One RotoWire Place. Keep in mind, the best projection systems have somewhat around a 35 percent miss rate, which doubles if you consider anything that is not an even match as a miss.

At this point of the season, the sample sizes are still too small to do any meaningful analysis on what is real or what is a house of cards for hitters and pitchers. Nearly one year ago to the day, I penned a piece about minor league hitters off to red hot or ice cold starts. A few of those names, Tony Campana, Anthony Rizzo, and Starling Marte, made differences in leagues last season while Evan Gattis started to get his name on the board so owners who picked him up on a hunch in keeper leagues last season are enjoying the fruits of their labor so far in 2013.
