Here at Cheap.Seats.Please., its always about looking forward. And there’s little that gets the year moving along quicker than getting ready for your fantasy season. Baseball is the gauntlet of all of fantasy league competition, and once again, our friends at Fanduel.com have returned again with some tips on how to get ahead of the competition…as well as get the most out of your fantasy dollar, with a new chance each week.

Just about every fantasy baseball owner out there would agree that the key to a successful draft is to find sleepers and potential breakout stars in the middle of the draft. Anyone can draft perennial All-Stars early on and be competitive if they follow cheat sheets. In fantasy baseball 2014, there will once again be some guys stepping it up and producing great numbers. So how do you identify them? It’s certainly anyone’s guess, but these players listed below will have the opportunity for success.

Cincinnati Reds v Texas Rangers

Jurickson Profar

A season ago, Profar was considered by some to be a pretty nice sleeper. However, he was stuck juggling a bunch of positions for the Texas Rangers, and his hitting suffered. When the Rangers traded Ian Kinsler away, that opened up the starting 2nd base position for the youngster. Expect him to be much better in fantasy baseball 2014 as he has additional stability to work with. Remember, he will be in just his age 21 season, so it is silly to sour on the talented infielder.

Taijuan Walker

He has been mentioned in trade rumors this offseason, but the Seattle Mariners are hoping to keep their talented flame thrower. Seattle gave him three starts at the end of the year in 2013, and he was able to give fans a glimpse of the future. Pitching at Safeco Field will definitely help his numbers in fantasy baseball 2014, so he is worth a look even if he doesn’t make the starting rotation out of Spring Training.

George Springer

The two guys listed above have both appeared at the MLB level, but Springer will likely be making his debut in 2014. Houston was absolutely terrible last season, but they still refrained from giving their talented outfielder the call. He is more than ready though, as he hit .303 with 37 home runs and 45 stolen bases. Some see him as being the next Mike Trout or Yasiel Puig when he is finally let loose at the MLB level. Don’t sleep on him in the late rounds.
