I hope we helped you get through the long offseason from the last out of the World Series to the first pitch on Opening Day. We brought you rankings of all sorts from rankings by position to tiered rankings to prospect rankings, along with player analysis, prospect profiles, prospect comparisons, team by team previews and fantasy spotlights, team by team minor league monitors, weekly chats, and all sorts of other fantasy baseball coverage. But, that was just the beginning.

Now that the season is about to start, we plan to provide you with expanded fantasy baseball coverage on a daily basis here at Fake Teams. Here is our weekly schedule going forward:
