Twelve Fantasy Baseball Predictions For 2012

With time in short supply these days, I'm keeping it to the conclusions without time for the analysis. Hopefully I will get to explain my reasoning in the near future:
  1. 2012 will be the year that Brandon Morrow finally puts it all together.
  2. Second half AJ Burnett will be worth the $1 flier on draft day to stash on your DL.
  3. Kenley Jansen will be worth over $5, even as a non-closing reliever, this year.
  4. Ian Stewart and Bryan LaHair will be fantasy relevant in mixed leagues, but Denard Span will not.
  5. Jason Heyward, Brennan Boesch, and Jayson Werth rebound in 2012.
  6. Adam Dunn will hit 30 home runs this year, but he'll struggle to hit .230.
  7. Juan Nicasio and Danny Duffy are this year's Michael Pineda and Brandon Beachy.
  8. Ryan Dempster will turn in a very "2008-2010"-like season.
  9. Chone Figgins will be more valuable in 2012 than he was in 2010.
  10. Kendrys Morales will be a top 300 fantasy commodity in 2012.
  11. Tyler Pastornicky will accumulate more HR+SB than Zack Cozart in 2012.
  12. Justin Morneau will retire before Chipper Jones.
