Potential Keeper League targets for 2018

Potential Keeper League targets for 2018

The 2017 season is coming to a close. My season has been a bit of a disappointment as it’s looking like this will be the first one in a long time where I will not be bringing home any hardware. Even so, I fielded playoff and/or highly competitive teams in eight of the nine leagues; […]

Waiver Saviors

Waiver Saviors

After another minor hiatus, I’m back with the latest and most likely final waiver saviors article to try and help you bring home the hardware.  Not to toot my own horn (too late), but hopefully you’ve been listening to the past several columns as many of these recommendations have really shaped up.  Jim Finch also […]

More Waiver Help for Injured Studs

More Waiver Help for Injured Studs

I know a lot of you are probably hurting. Quite a few of my teams are banged up right now. One of my playoff teams featured every single one of these guys: Paxton, Wood, Altuve, Santana, Conforto, Cespedes, Rosenthal, Brantley, and Gallo. All of them, along with countless others, have gone down for either a […]

Hitters to target down the stretch

Hitters to target down the stretch

Last week I outlined some under-owned pitchers that could help replace your injured studs.  This week we’ll take a look at some hitters that can help carry you down the stretch.  Probably won’t go as deep on the analysis on some of these guys since this is more about striking while the iron is hot. […]

Replacements for Injured Staring Pitchers

Replacements for Injured Staring Pitchers

The trade deadline has passed for most leagues.  Playoffs are on the horizon and may even be starting soon in leagues that try finish up a bit early.  Many teams are struggling with injuries, particularly injuries to their pitching staff.  James Paxton just went onto the DL, the Yankees plated both Sabathia and Tanaka on […]

Buy and Sell: Trade Deadline

I am writing this on my birthday, but I hope to give you some gifts here. For many of you, this will be the last week you can pull off a trade before the deadline. Hopefully some of these targets will help. Buy Sonny Gray: Yankees I profiled Sonny Gray back in May, still like […]

Buy Low Sell Low Week 16

Buy Low Sell Low Week 16

The major league trade deadline is one week from today at 4:00 p.m. That date serves as a red flag to all league owners that the fantasy trade deadline is quickly approaching. If you have not taken stock of your team and assessed your needs I suggest you do so now. Those of you in […]

Buy Low Sell High: Week15

Buy Low Sell High: Week15

The standard trade deadline for Yahoo leagues is August 13. It is right around the same time on other sites as well, give or take a week. That gives owners approximately one month to make a move. Some owners like to wait until the last-minute figuring the desperation among contenders will drive up prices. Others […]

Buy Low Sell High: Week 14

Buy Low Sell High: Week 14

July 1st may signify the halfway mark, but the all-star break is the benchmark that most people use. If you have not so do yet, take the next few days to evaluate your team, identify the problem areas, dig through the waiver wire, and make a trade or two to shore up your team for […]

Buy Low Sell High: Trout Fishing

Buy Low Sell High: Trout Fishing

We are now in the middle of June which means fantasy owners should have a pretty good idea where their team stands. Some teams are sitting pretty atop of the league with little to no concerns. Many are sitting right below just looking for that something extra to give them that push they need. Even […]

Trust the Process

Trust the Process

We’re going to take a quick break from my beloved “Eye Test” column. This is because the other night, I found myself singing a tune I haven’t sang much the past three years. I found myself saying these words: “I am absolutely fuming. I have the paper champ of paper champ fantasy rosters. And I’m […]

Early Season Waiver Wire Strategy

Early Season Waiver Wire Strategy

I love profiling players, but what really gets the juices flowing is talking about the strategy that goes into fantasy baseball.  I love the gamesmanship; trying to outsmart your fellow league mates, and there is no better feeling than being one step ahead of them. One way to make up for a bad draft or […]
