RotoWire’s fantasy baseball magazine includes more than 1,500 player profiles, dollar values, projected stats, cheatsheets, articles by Peter Schoenke, Derek VanRiper, Jeff Erickson and more!

What Makes This Product Worthy of Winning This Category?
We would argue RotoWire’s fantasy baseball magazine includes more player profiles than any other print magazine in any sport, and each player profile offers considerable depth. They offer a big advantage when a fantasy baseball player scrambles for research on an unknown player during a draft or auction.
