NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 7

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 7

This might be the ugliest week for waivers so far. It makes sense as we hit bye weeks and there are fewer games and less opportunities for someone to pop. This week hit some teams hard with the loss of multiple starters, I know in one league I personally lost Rodgers, Tate, and Sanders. I […]

Buy Low Sell High: Another Star Goes Down

Buy Low Sell High: Another Star Goes Down

The NFL can be brutal sometimes. We again lost the privilege of watching one of the best players in the world play when Rodgers was likely lost for the season with a broken collarbone. This year you could argue the top QB (Rodgers), RB (Johnson), WR (Beckham), defensive player (Watt) all are on the IR. […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 6

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 6

After a week where there were players to be had everywhere, this week the waiver wire has a lot less to offer. This week’s injuries didn’t lead to obvious replacements like last week’s injuries did. If you really need a plug and play starter you might be out of luck. You may have some options […]

Buy Low Sell High: Another injury week

Buy Low Sell High: Another injury week

This was another brutal fantasy week. Four fantasy friendly offenses were on bye and more fantasy stars went down with injury. I think panic will set in from teams that had low scores this week and are sitting at 2-3 or worse. With more bye weeks coming you can always go out and target those […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 5

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 5

Depending on how you look at week four, it was either really rough or really beneficial. If you lost Dalvin Cook, Ty Montgomery or Chris Carson you are probably hurting at the running back position. Cook and Montgomery were likely cornerstones of your teams as guys drafted around the top 40. While you might not […]

Buy low/sell high: Bye weeks

Buy low/sell high: Bye weeks

I tried to find buy lows and sell highs this week and I struggled a lot more than I expected to. Just like every other week there will be someone on Tuesday that I realize should have made the cut here. But this week, most of the high performers felt like good options to keep, […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 4

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 4

Week three was a bit of a let down in terms of waivers outside of one name. There were very few injuries and performances from players that aren’t owned that actually inspire optimism. No, I am not at all interested in Marcedes Lewis or Geronimo Allison. Others that were good performers for the most part […]

Buy Low/Sell High: Trading Season is Here

Buy Low/Sell High: Trading Season is Here

Right around week three is where trading season really opens up. We are far enough into the year that injuries have gotten to some teams, and we can start taking a stance on players. Whether that means realizing roles aren’t what we though, teams being not what we though, and players just being better or […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 2

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 2

Week two provides a little more clarity as we get a second week of sample sizes. A couple of players that were on waiver wires last week are still there, but the price just got a lot higher – in the same way the price has gone down on several others. I think people sometimes […]

Buy Low/Sell High: Week 2

Buy Low/Sell High: Week 2

Buying low and selling high is hard to do after week one. Draft day value is still attached to every player. People don’t, and shouldn’t, want to sell their top picks after a bad week. Week two gives that second data point, and second panic point. One week and the thought is it was just […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 1

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 1

Early season waivers are different than the middle weeks when bye weeks start to hit hard. Early in the year, all you are looking for is a breakout more often than not. Circumstances are different in deeper leagues with like 14-16 teams. There, finding someone who could be a five catch for 70 yard receiver […]

Buy Low Sell High: Don’t put too much emphasis on Week 1

Buy Low Sell High: Don’t put too much emphasis on Week 1

Week one brings on a lot of overreaction. It is our only data point so we have nothing to compare it to. There will be a lot of confirmation bias here. People you thought were good preseason were good, so now you KNOW they are good. Same goes for bad players. Yes we know something […]

Minor League Report: Awards and All-Prospect Team

Minor League Report: Awards and All-Prospect Team

As a long season comes to an end I figured what better way to wrap up this season’s report than with some awards and an all prospect team. Last chance Hitter – Juan Soto: Soto spent most of the year on the DL. Next year he is going to fly up lists when he plays […]

Minor League Report: Things Can Change Quickly

Minor League Report: Things Can Change Quickly

You don’t realize how fast things can change until you ignore it for a week. The one minor exception is Minor league stuff, which doesn’t seems to drastically change in a week. Sure, a guy or two can get called up, but a lot of times it is something that people have been anticipating for […]

Fantasy Football Misconceptions

Fantasy Football Misconceptions

There are so many things that come out this time of the year from fantasy analysts. What we sometimes fail to remember is that there are also casual players that don’t understand things. It happens. I have been there. I knew about football, but it took me a while to really understand how to budget […]

Minor League Report: The final stretch

Minor League Report: The final stretch

We are already halfway through August. And while that is awesome for those of us in playoff races, us prospect people have less than a month of regular season minor league baseball left. We do have the Arizona Fall League to look forward to, but in many leagues add drops are closed by then and […]

Minor League Report: Never Give Up

Minor League Report: Never Give Up

A lot of trade deadlines have passed or are quickly approaching, but in dynasty leagues some will still have trading opportunity.  This is also a time to find the potential deep prospects to make a rise in 2018. In shallower keeper and dynasty formats, players that have had big success in high-A are typically guys […]

Minor League Report: Prospects on the move

Minor League Report: Prospects on the move

The trade deadline was boring for a while as I sat around looking at the potential names to put in here around 2 o’clock. Luckily there was some late deals that helped beef up this article a bit. I feel like I have been saying this for months, but don’t be the guy afraid to […]

Minor League Report: The Trade Deadline is Approaching

Minor League Report: The Trade Deadline is Approaching

This is the last edition of the report before the major league trade deadline. This time next week many prospect, as well as MLB players obviously, will be changing teams. There are very few times we will actually not like the landing spot for a prospect. The only case being if a pitching prospect ends […]

Minor League Report: Second Half

Minor League Report: Second Half

The halfway point, kind of, is in the rearview mirror as we exit the All-Star Break. That means a lot of trade rumors will be getting thrown around in the next two weeks. Quick side bar on that. This is one of my most annoying parts of the baseball season. Hearing and seeing reporters link […]
