2011 Fantasy Baseball Projections


Derek Jeter SS New York Yankees

Spike in ground balls paired with a drop in line-drive rate no good for light sticks with aging legs. It's telling, however, that even in Derek Jeter's tanking, you should still take a chance on him rebounding before dipping into the even riskier middle portion of this class. Big question: Can he rebound vs. RHP? Jetes endured perilous K zone judgment with slowing bat speed, but his contact rate actually rose for the second straight year. With promise of a shortened swing, there's reason to believe he'll be a "better" version of 2010 - approaching 20 steals and scoring ample runs in a stacked lineup while pushing his BA closer to .300, which would make his aging more tolerable among shortstops.
