2010 Fantasy Baseball Projections


The innings-eating Jeff Niemann was efficient for most of his rookie season. The whiff isn't his best friend yet, but his September growth shows what he can do; employing his newfound splitter more often may help their relationship. He'll need to quell line drives to give us more confidence, but Niemann can still round out a deep mixed staff with more upside than most of his late-round competition. He's a No. 3 AL-only arm, too.
