With MLB’s Opening Day just around the corner, we provide our choice for 10 breakout players in Fantasy Baseball 2016.

By Dustin Shull

As a new baseball season rapidly ascends upon us, and everyone is getting their fantasy teams drafted, we continue to wonder who that late round guy that will carry you to a championship is.

Last season, first-year guys such as Carlos Correa, Mookie Betts, Kris Bryant, and Kyle Schwarber burst onto the scene and did more than their part to satisfy the happiness of fantasy players.

It does not necessarily have to be a first year guy that can have that breakout year, as Nolan Arenado made us wait until his third year to show everyone that he could hang with the best of the best.


Are these guys in this list going to hit 42 homeruns and drive in 130 RBIs?  I would venture as far to say no, but that does not mean that it will hurt you to take a chance late and hold onto some of these guys.

You just might luck out and steal the next Arenado.

Here are our 10 breakout Fantasy Baseball players for 2016:
