Start or Sit Week 7

A lot of the time we get the new exciting players off the waiver wire and don’t know what to do with them. Do I immediately plug Jacquizz Rodgers into my lineup over Frank Gore? Cameron Meredith or DeAndre Hopkins? Sometimes these players deserve spots in the starting lineup immediately. Many times those are the […]


Week 7 Injury Report

As I always say, another week and another filled up injury report. The NFL’s new injury designation system makes it a lot tougher for us to see where a player is truly at. The league decided to trash the “probable” designation in favor of “questionable.” A player is eligible to be questionable if he is […]


MLB Players to Watch in 2017

The 2016 MLB postseason is still underway, but it’s never too early to start thinking about 2017 (especially if your team has been eliminated already). In fact, in a few weeks you can even start betting on who you will think the 2017 World Series at most major online sportsbooks. Baseball never ends, and before […]


Second Base Prospects: Rankings Movers

Every Friday I will take a snapshot of this year’s current crop of prospects at each position relative to how they were ranked a year ago. I’ll examine the top performers, those who did not live up to our lofty expectations, and the key graduates. Our rankings last year were compiled by Andy Germani and myself, and I […]

With the regular season over, it’s time to look at 2017 and beyond. For keeper formats, I’m looking at risers and fallers in our 2017 rankings, as well as highlighting where I differ from the rest of the Assembly team. I’m going to say this here, instead of in every player’s analysis, because it’s true […]

Ian Kinsler power surge

Ian Kinsler’s power surge

It’s not surprising that Ian Kinsler can knock some pitches out of the park with ease. He’s always been at least somewhat of a power threat, hitting 30 homers twice in 2009 and 2011, and over 200 in his career so far. As a second baseman, that’s an impressive trait to carry, especially when he’s […]

2017 First Base Dynasty/Keeper Rankings

2017 First Base Dynasty/Keeper Rankings

After each week of positional coverage, we will wrap things up here on Sunday with our 2016 dynasty/keeper rankings. Players are ranked with the next five years of production in mind, so when you see Jose Abreu ranked ahead of a player like Albert Pujols – that does not mean that we believe Abreu will […]

FanDuel NFL Week 7 Plays and Stay Aways

Each week I plan to give you what I feel are the best FanDuel plays at each position, as well as the plays that I am staying away from. My DFS methodology is a little different than the typical player. I don’t make separate cash and tournament lineups. I simply make the best possible lineup […]
