The Freshman 15 often bloats college students. The Frugal 15, however, gives fantasy baseball players some tasty treats without expanding their budget's waistline.

On this year's initial cost-effective docket, I'm excluding hyped arms like Matt Moore and Yu Darvish. Time to aim higher but also deeper, complete with tiers. This is only the beginning of your SP value hunting, but it's a noteworthy jumping-off point.
