Outside of the usual judging of a player's body of work and potential upside heading into the new season, park factors could give many fantasy baseball players key insight into just how well their team will perform this year. 

Coors Field, Globe Life Park in Arlington and Great American Ballpark, all renowned hitter-friendly venues, topped the Bigs last season in three key park factor categories that translate to huge fantasy production: Hits (1.233), runs (1.352), and homers (1.395), respectively. 

Park Factor, according to ESPN, compares the rate of stats at home against the rate of stats on the road. A rate higher than 1.000 favors the hitter while a rate lower than 1.000 favors the pitcher.

Coors Field clearly holds the most value of the above-mentioned parks due to the fact that it stands top three in each of the above-mentioned categories, which could key in on solid production or career resurgence for Rockies players like ​Daniel Murphy

However, unless it's a bonafide superstar like Nolan Arenado, frantically selecting Colorado Rockies, Texas Rangers, and Cincinnati Reds players early and often during drafts would be a huge overreaction to this information. However, it could key in on some solid under-the-radar streaming options and favorable matchups as the season rolls along.
