Just picked up Fantasy Baseball Index now for three years running for two main reasons. Gives you the past 3 years stats, with 3-year avg, and 08 projection, auction value with short parargraph on each player in a very quick and organized manner. Secondly, they are not afriad to shake things up a bit in their rankings (ie Crawford #1 OF). Not that you always agree with it, but I want an opinion and rationale I haven't heard before when I buy a fantasy magazine.

Also includes top rookies at each position and an experts poll. The poll asks various fantasy experts questions to predict rebounds, busts, over/under rated, etc. which again gives you more opinions and insights.

Drawback for this year is the lack of any mock drafts. I think they had two mock drafts in last year's issue.

Don't know if anybody has already mentioned it...didn't read the entire thread.

Lindy's Baseball that IS NOT THE FANTASY ADDITION is pretty impressive. A lot of useful fantasy information not packaged as fantasy information.

Just thought I would throw it into the discussion.

Lindy's non fantasy mag is always good

as is SI's annual baseball preview issue

I just got the Rotoworld Beckett magazine and I'd have to say it is the best one out of the ones that I read through. It's got projected stats, sleepers, busts, prospects, projected lineups, middle relievers. Basically it has the whole deal. I haven't stopped reading it since I picked it up.

My favorite resource, the Sports Weekly Fantasy Baseball Extra, is hopefully on the newsstands tomorrow.

Any other late releases we should know about?

I don't think there's anything else. I "google alerted" a bunch of keywords to keep track, and there hasn't been any updates for a month or so.
