Last but not least, we bring you our 2018 Fantasy Sports Boss Fantasy Baseball All-Value team.  This is a team made up on guys who were either drafted very late or not at all but who broke through to supply some major value for their respective teams.

CATCHERS (2):  Kurt Suzuki, Evan Gattis
Notes:  Both Suzuki and Gattis qualify as boring veteran players who many looked past during the draft but both are also reminding us they still have quite a bit to offer.

FIRST BASEMAN (2):  Jesus Aguilar, Max Muncy
Notes:  These two are quite obvious as they arguably have been the very best values no matter the position in all of 2018 fantasy baseball.

SECOND BASE (2):  Jose Peraza, Gleyber Torres
Notes:  Torres' numbers would be even better if he had not gotten injured and landed on the DL but the future is extremely bright here.  Meanwhile, Peraza was 2017 sleeper who went bust that caused his 2018 stock to plummet.  He is taking advantage of a second chance though to really show off his legs and .300 average.

SHORTSTOPS (2):  Tim Anderson, Trevor Story
Notes:  I have spoken quite a bit of late how Story has absolutely exploded this season compared to his face-plant of 2017.  Anderson himself has been terrific with 13 homers and 21 steals that are simply not getting the attention it deserves.

THIRD BASEMAN (2):  Eduardo Escobar, Matt Carpenter
Notes:  I admit I wrote Carpenter off a bit prematurely as few have destroyed the baseball with more force than this guy over the last month.  As far as Escobar is concerned, he adds to a Minnesota Twins lineup that has gotten some nice contributions from multiple players this summer.

OUTFIELDERS (5):  Eddie Rosario, Nick Markakis, Michael Brantley, Mitch Haniger, Shin-Soo Choo:  This is a mix of veterans who were widely ignored in drafts this spring and also upstarts that disappointed a bit the season prior.  All are well-deserving of making this list.

STARTING PITCHING (10):  Blake Snell, Ross Stripling, Mike Foltynewicz, Tyler Skaggs, Miles Mikolas, Eduardo Rodriguez, Charlie Morton, Patrick Corbin, Kenta Maeda, Jose Berrios   
Notes:  Some of these names also appear on our midseason All-Star roster and you really can't get much more value than what we have seen from Snell, Stripling, and Mikolas.
