Some are good for a quick boost, others could be good long-term additions, and there will be a few speculative adds thrown in there as […]

Pitch Count: Week 11 Waiver Wire Streamer Options

Our resident streaming and waiver wire pitcher expect, Marc Goldstein, was placed on the 10-Day DL retroactive to April 5. He should be able to return as soon as eligible which means he will be back here next week. I’ve been summoned from the bullpen to make the spot start today. Unlike other bullpen arms, […]

Player Spotlight: Joc Pederson

Player Spotlight: Joc Pederson

After an impressive year at Double-A in 2013 and a 30/30 campaign at Triple-A in 2014, the bar was set high for Joc Pederson’s first full season with the Dodgers in 2015. Obviously, there were a lot of disappointed owners, but there were enough positive signs to give fantasy owners hope. Things did not go […]

Waiver Wire Report: Week One

Waiver Wire Report: Week One

It is never too early to start looking at the waiver wire. The smart fantasy owners have already taken stock of what is available and are well aware of which late draft picks represent the weakest links on their squad. “But my team is perfect – All my late draft picks are full of upside, […]

Spring Training highs and lows: NL Hitters

Spring Training highs and lows: NL Hitters

Yesterday I covered the spring training highs and lows for hitters in the American League, so there is no need for a lengthy introduction. Today I’ll tackle the National League, highlighting those standout performances (or lack thereof) as we head into the 2017 fantasy season. *All spring stats are through Sunday. NL East Atlanta Highs: […]

Spring Training highs and lows: AL Hitters

Spring Training highs and lows: AL Hitters

Spring training numbers. Some view them as a window of things to come. Others see them as meaningless stats. A case can be made for both sides of this argument.  The batting average leader through Friday this spring is Jesus Aguilar. He is 23 for 46 at the plate with five home runs. This could […]

Looking for value team-by-team is like adding […]

Yasmani Grandal: Overrated catching option in 2017

Yasmani Grandal: Overrated catching option in 2017

After years of teasing us with his power potential, Grandal finally delivered in 2016. He hit 27 home runs, finishing second in power just behind Evan Gattis. Most of that damage came over the final three months where Grandal hit 20 home runs over 213 at bats. He still batted just .228, but you take […]

Is Matt Carpenter still a top-10 at first base

Is Matt Carpenter still a top-10 at first base

Keeper and Dynasty league owners were dealt a blow last month with the Cardinals announced that they will move Matt Carpenter across the diamond to play first base in 2017. Carpenter was tied with Alex Bregman for sixth in our recent dynasty third base rankings, although half the panel view him as a bottom-10 option. […]
