RAY FLOWERS      


Welcome to an epic journey that began when you clicked on "purchase."

For those of you that have been with Ray for years, thank you so much for your continued support.

For those of you are new to the whole @BaseballGuys – Ray Flowers thing – here’s a quick primer.

Follow what you read in this Draft Guide and you will win.

**NOTE: The Draft Guide will continue to be updated day after day up until the start of the regular season. Yes, the Guide will continue to grow with added content up until first pitch.

Pretty simple

There are imitators out there, but there is only one Draft Guide that you need to dominate the competition.

Some guides do what they have done the last decade. They list sleepers/busts, rookies, players that have switched teams and they toss in some rankings as well. They are perfectly acceptable entries. You didn’t purchase the Guru Elite Draft Guide to be acceptable though, did you?

Oh, our Guide will have what was listed above, but so much more.

It’s not just that we have extra articles and information, it’s that we have a different take. Our goal in this Guide is to teach you to be a better fantasy player. We could dictate to you from on high, merely telling you what is what without any care to your personal squad. We don’t do it like that at Guru Elite.

What you have at your disposal is a comprehensive teaching tool that will explain to you why we believe or don’t believe in a player. A full-time fantasy writer for going on 17 years (how many have done that?), and multiple FSWA Award Winner, Ray Flowers doesn’t believe in telling you what to do. Instead, he believes in showing you the right way to do it. Ray won’t merely say – ‘I don’t like that guy.’ Ray will explain to you, in detail, why you shouldn’t like that guy. With articles like “How to Analyze a Hitter” and “How to Analyze a Pitcher,” Ray will describe the process that has gone into his award-winning Player Profile Series. He will also, of course, breakdown scores of players in that series. This Guide doesn’t have three sentences on a player. Ray digs much deeper than that with his 1,000+ word reports on players.

It’s not just Ray either. Ray will be joined by the Guru Elite staff in producing the best fantasy product out there in 2018. Here’s a quick rundown of what the crew will present in ’18.

1 – There will be the traditional articles, noted above. Ray will also look back on his 2017 calls to discern what went right and where he screwed up (for all of you who think Ray never admits when he’s wrong, there’s a whole article where he does). Which players should you avoid in 2018, and why? Which players should you target in 2018, and why?

2 – The Guide will present Research Articles that dive deep into a myriad of topics such as what roles do ballparks play? Why should you focus on skills versus the results? Which mistakes should you avoid when looking at pitchers? How can you use advanced analytics to your advantage? Do measures like wOBA, expected batting average, launch angle and exit velocity have a place in your player analysis? What’s the deal with the home run – what are the takeaways that matter? Ray will break down ABA and SWIP, two measure that he pioneered years ago.

3 – Does a strategy like punting a category work? How should you spend your late-round selections at the draft table? What tips of the trade do you need to learn if you’re in an auction format? If you’re in a points league, what should you be looking at when prepping for your draft?

4 – The Guide will talk about how to handle things in-season. How do winners address waivers? What should you be doing on the trade market? What are the key in-season mistakes you should be keen to avoid?

5 – There will be a DFS section breaking down the daily game. We’re pretty famous around these parts for our DFS knowledge as we possess the greatest collection of DFS players on the planet. Millions of dollars, quite literally, have been won by our staff, and daily we help you to win as well. We realize it might seem daunting to some folks, so we’ve broken it all down in this guide with a how-to-play grouping of articles that will teach you the terms and skills needed to win in the daily game.

6 – Finally, there will be rankings, yes glorious rankings. This is another part of the Guide that setups us apart from others.

Ray Flowers never leaves his house. We’ve checked. It’s true. Pajamas and nachos at the keyboard. That’s what he’s all about. Part of his never-ending quest to figure out the world of baseball includes his never-ending tinkering with Rankings. Here’s what you get with your copy of the Guru Elite Draft Guide.

The Rankings will be updated, as needed, all the way up until the first pitch of the regular season.

So-and-so breaks his leg... you won’t have to wait 10 days to get an update. Ray updates the Rankings multiple times a week as needed. Just how it is with Ray, so you can pretty much guarantee that you will have the most up to date rankings whenever you head to your draft.

AN ADDED BONUS... updated Rankings all season long.

Your purchase of the Draft Guide includes a monthly update of the rankings. The first of each month, May through September, Ray will re-rank all of the players for the rest of the season. No stale months old rankings here, just the most up to date rankings you will find anywhere.

By the way, the Rankings are for AL-only, NL-only, and Mixed Leagues. They will be based on 5x5 scoring and will also include auction $ values in another added bonus to augment the Guide.

ADDED BONUS #2... is Ray’s in-season coverage.

Part of the Draft Guide is access to a daily article, from Ray, that only you can access. 

Finally, let’s talk about how you can access the Guide.

It’s a Living Guide. An idea pioneered by our own Jeff Mans, here’s how it works.

We will be updating the Guide all the time until opening day. Not just the rankings, but the Guide. We will be adding articles to the Guide on a daily basis as we go along with you, turning each page to the next article. Instead of dumping on you some 300-page behemoth all at once, our team of crack writers will methodically release articles all the way until opening day.

Ready to embark on a journey that will culminate in a 2018 Fantasy Baseball Championship?

We thought you might say “yes.”
