Cain: Still had a 1.16 whip and the 3rd best k/9 of his career last year. His total k's were down because he did not have the same IP as the past 5-6 years. His strand rate is what hurt him last year. I rank him the same as I did the past few years.

Kemp: Was just hurt the past few years. Still could be great if he stays healthy. He is like Cargo/Tulo to me. Stud when healthy but almost sure to miss time.

Stanton scares me with no team around him. He gets drafted way to high for me. If he fell a few rounds lower I would take him but he never doe so I never get him. Hit in the 240's last year with one SB. Runs and rbi will be low with that team. Still can hit 40 HR though.

Lincecum: I think Lincecum hit his projections from most sites last year. This is who he is now.

Votto had a great year. Led the league in walks is what hurt his counting stats some. Hit over 300, 100+ runs, 6 sb(for a 1b) not bad. 2nd best OBP of his career.People just wanted a little bit more power numbers from him in fantasy.

Based on regressing to the mean, I would pick Castro out of all these guys. Has a new Manager and perhaps the Cubs abandon the approach of making Castro more patient and let him go back to being more of a free swinger that worked for him from 2011-2012.

Cain should improve and had a good September but based on his historical numbers I don't expect an ERA too far under 4.00.

I really like Cain this year since he will be undervalued imo. 3.00 era, 1.15 whip, 185 k's. 17-6 record.

 BJ Upton has to be on this list, right? He was sooooo incredibly bad last year that even a below-average season for him would be a big bounceback. I would like to think that he has a decent year by his standards. I don't know how low he will go, but i think he will be around in the second half of every draft. At his best he is a 6th-7th round pick, and he should be available in the 17th and after....

Yoenis Cespedes should rebound in 2014. The power is legit, the speed should return with health and no way he hits .240 again! I will be investing in Cespedes in 2014.

2014 Projection
Yoenis Cespedes OF Oak: 85 Runs - 30 Home Runs - 90 RBI - .275 AVG. - 12 SB

I am betting on Chase Headley bouncing back.

Joey Votto and Ryan Braun will bounce back this year. I also think staying healthy Matt Kemp should be a third round steal this year.

Braun I think has a big deal

Maybin, if he stays healthy, should produce decent results

BJ Upton- can't be any worse than last year

I like Cain and Headley. Headley will come quite cheap, and Cain will probably be drafted in the same round as Yovani Gallardo, but outperform him by quite a bit.

Prior to last season, Cain and King Felix had posted very similar numbers:

Cain  235 starts, 85-78, 3.27 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, 7.5 k/9, 124 ERA+
Felix  238 starts, 98-76, 3.22 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, 8.3 k/9, 128 ERA+

He's well worth the minimal risk.

I will probably end with Cain in most of my leagues this year since he will be down to most people .

Cain definitely.
Aaron Hill could put up great numbers, and will be cheaper due to his injury last season.
Ditto for Ben Revere, a sneaky cheap grab for 40+ SB and solid avg.
BJ Upton would have to be very cheap for me to take a gamble.
I like Stanton for next year. He still is one of the few players to have the power to take the HR crown.


Bust: Chris Johnson. No way he repeats those numbers, especially avg.
I'd stay away from Lincecum and Kemp (just don't see him getting more than 400 or so abs this year.

I think Cain is one of those guys on everyone's list...if anything you'll get him maybe a round later or a couple dollars cheaper, but I don't expect a huge bargain on him.

Cespedes K's went up last year, his BA won't rebound until his gets his contact rate back up. Certainly possible, but his BA last year wasn't because he was unlucky.

Stanton is also one of those guys that will still be hard to get a bargain on because his potential is just so high. Similar to Cain, you might be able to get him a round later or few dollars cheaper but not much.

BJ Upton is definitely someone you can get cheaper. I think similar to Dunn a couple years ago, his year was SO bad with no sign up coming out of it that people are going to stay away until very late in a draft. You can definitely get a bargain on him IF he bounces back. Personally he burned me last year so not sure I'd be taking a chance on him again. But someone else certainly will.

Not betting on a Headley bounceback, i think he had his career year.

I'm hoping there is no Cano bust, I'm keeping him for $28 and I need him to have another #1 2bman year.
