Collette Calls: The Last 365

Jason Collette

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.

Over the past calendar year, there is an outfielder that has totaled 660 plate appearances. He has hit 25 doubles, three triples, 28 home runs, and has stolen 23 bases. Despite that counting category production, he is hitting .211/.273/.404 and fantasy owners are actively talking about cutting this player that was a top 40 draft pick this year - B.J. Upton.

It is admittedly impossible to not get frustrated about how a player like Upton and other similar players are struggling in 2013 as we are one-third of the way through the season. Around this time, I always find it helpful to look back over the past calendar year to see who are the leaders in the standard 5x5 categories. I find it sometimes tempers excitement with certain players who have been great recently but not so much over a larger sample size while others can somewhat sneak up on you about how great they have actually been.
