Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 20

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 20

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Eddie Rosario – I’ve liked him for several seasons, but a lack of playing time and the inability to put everything together has forced him to develop slowly. However, he has made important steps […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 19

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Eduardo Nunez – Changing teams hasn’t slowed him down — if anything, he’s picked it up a bit since joining Boston. The super utility glove is also providing much-needed batting average and steals, and […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 18

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Adam Jones – He had a great career peak from 2011-14. Then the batting average, runs, and RBI came down. To be fair, you can’t fully blame him for runs and RBI. Still, it […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 17

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 17

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Chris Taylor – He’s one of the biggest surprises for fantasy owners this year, and most of us had no problem picking him up as a free agent. Maybe you’ve been waiting for him […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 16

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 16

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Andrew McCutchen – Knee injuries have dropped his stolen base total. A thumb injury was the likely culprit for his bad batting average in 2016. As McCutchen enters his thirties, owners wonder whether he […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 15

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Rougned Odor – Well, Odor is providing the same power and speed as last year, and he’s on pace to match both 2016 marks. However, what’s hurt his value for those who drafted him […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 14

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 14

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Elvis Andrus – The reliable speedster often disappointed owners because he seemed to have the ability to reach 30+ steals, but usually totaled no more than 25 swipes. This year he has busted out, […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 13

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 13

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Cody Bellinger – If you’ve hit 9 HR in two weeks, you deserve getting mentioned in the “who’s hot” section. He has more home runs than his age, and in just a third of […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 12

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 12

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Lorenzo Cain – It’s safe to say his low stolen base total from 2016 was due to that hammy injury. He’s already matched his stolen base total from last year, and in fewer at […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 11

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 11

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Kole Calhoun – His blah April was followed by an awful May. Now he’s on the rise again. I’ll admit, in a league where roster space was short, I dumped him a few weeks […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 10

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 10

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Ryon Healy – Last year it was hard to believe the hype given some of Healy’s underlying metrics. This year the average is down, but he has already matched his home run output from […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 9

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 9

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Devon Travis – A horrifically slow start has been righted, and Travis has hit .380 in May. He’s already stolen a career high four bases, and he seems likely to set a career high […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 8

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 8

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Miguel Sano – The power has always been there, but the rest of his game lagged behind. So far in 2017, I’d say it’s caught up. He’s doing everything right, including a great batting […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 7

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 7

Yep, I’m covering two Cubs out of eight players. It’s that kind of season. I love my Cubbies, but they are also struggling enough that it warrants some analysis. If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Jean Segura – You’ve gotta […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 6

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 6

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment and I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Marwin Gonzalez – Marwin isn’t getting full playing time, but over the last two weeks he’s still an elite value. That part-time stint may mean he’s still available in your league. Well, he […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 5

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 5

My Cubbies aren’t off to the same blazing hot start as last year, but they’re still at the top, so I can’t ask for much more. However, a Cub had to make my list due to his struggles: Kyle Hendricks. At the same time, the Brewers are shocking pretty much everyone by their second-place status, […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: April Risers and Fallers

Fantasy Stock Watch: April Risers and Fallers

With a few weeks under the belt, it’s time to start looking at the hot and cold streaks of players in April. I’ll always remember Chris Shelton for getting off to a blazing start, only to fade hard as I kept holding on to him, hoping he would get back to being a positive value. […]

Will Stolen Bases Be More Plentiful This Year?

Will Stolen Bases Be More Plentiful This Year?

We are only one week into the season, and already there are some surprising stolen base totals. Marcus Semien, who stole 10 bases in 2016, already had three. Chris Owings has increased his SB total each year, but his yearly best has been 21 – this week he’s notched four steals. Brett Gardner stole 40+ […]

A Recap of Our Readers Roto League

A Recap of Our Readers Roto League

This year we put together several reader leagues to allow our fans to play against us. I participated in the CBS 5×5 league, with 10 teams. Frankly, it’s the shallowest league I’ve played in for at least a few years. Even though a 12-team league doesn’t seem that much larger, it is still enough to […]

Don’t Knock the Old Timers

Don’t Knock the Old Timers

A lot of fantasy managers focus on keeper leagues, and all those talented players under 30 are hot commodities. Who doesn’t like to have their top keepers locked up for five or more years, assuming no majors injuries? I’d certainly drool over a portfolio that includes Correa, Harper, Rizzo, and Syndergaard. That’s a “set it […]
