The Z Files: First Half Fantasy All-Stars
The Z Files: First Half Fantasy All-Stars

This article is part of our The Z Files series.

Believe it or not, we're at the true midpoint of the season, or at least very close. i thought it would be fun to look at the first half fantasy All-Stars. There won't be multiple rounds of voting to confuse broadcasting booths across the league. I made two sets of lists. The first is strictly ranking by earnings through Wednesday, June 24. The second looks at return on investment, using the average of RotoWire, Mastersball and Baseball HQ for the initial projection. The players are grouped by the highest profit over initial expected earnings, provided they earned at least $1 in standard 15-team mixed formats. In fact, all the earnings are based on standard 15-team, mixed roto scoring. First, second and third-team members are presented, along with their first-half roto stats.
