The Atlanta Braves roster is built around veteran talent and up and coming prospects. Which names should Braves fans be targeting in their fantasy drafts?
Targeting Atlanta Braves players in your fantasy draft may not be the best of ideas. Overall the Braves roster is still one that is rebuilding and looking towards the future. With that said there are some good options on the Braves roster come draft time or to acquire through trades this season.
There are also plenty of names that you are going to want to avoid in leagues with limited depth. Bartolo Colon and R.A. Dickey may be decent upgrades from last year’s rotation but Braves fans need to remember that they are still not good fantasy options.
The same goes for veteran 2nd baseman Brandon Phillips. Phillips may be a tempting option late in drafts but should be left on the waiver wire considering his declining stats and the fact he could be benched or traded for a prospect at some point this season. Here are the Braves players that you want to target in fantasy baseball.
