For many fantasy owners, players of a certain age get crossed off long before their drafts begin. They look at a player over that age and assume regression or injuries are on their way.
This is fortunate for the more open-minded owners in baseball, because there are values to be had among these older folks if owners know where to look. In fact, the excitement that comes with drafting the hot young stars can hide the productivity of older players who have lost the luster but not the skills.
Do not use this article as reason to draft the players too early, therefore negating the value, but also, do not let them slip past you when it makes sense for the overall team makeup.
