The 2020 MLB season is finally set to get underway on July 23, and your Fantasy baseball draft prep isn't complete without first seeing the projections for every MLB player in the shortened 60-game season from renowned Fantasy baseball expert Ariel Cohen.
Cohen is the creator of the ATC (Average Total Cost) Projection System. He was a finalist for two FSWA Awards in 2018 -- Baseball Article of the Year and Baseball Writer of the Year -- and was named FSWA Baseball Writer of the Year in 2019. Additionally, FantasyPros named the ATC system the the No. 1 overall most accurate projections system in 2019. Cohen has used the ATC system projections to finish in the money in several NFBC, RTSports, Tout Wars and other national leagues, racking up several division titles.
Now Cohen's ATC system has revealed its projections for the 2020 MLB season. One thing we can tell you: Cohen's projections have identified Phillies pitcher Aaron Nola as overvalued. He has a projected ERA of 3.78 and a WHIP of 1.24, both of which are small improvements over last year, but not close to his 2018 marks (2.37 ERA, 0.97 WHIP).
"Many experts value Nola's 2018 breakout highly and predict a return of Aaron's skills closer to his near Cy Young level," Cohen said. "ATC projects some bounce back from 2019, but nowhere near his former level."
Cohen's projections are also extremely high on a first baseman some are overlooking. He's set to hit double-digit home runs during the 60-game 2020 MLB season, but is being picked well outside the top 200 in early Fantasy baseball drafts. You ABSOLUTELY need to see what the ATC system has to say about each player before going on the clock.
