The Closer Report: Week 3

The Closer Report: Week 3

We may just be a few weeks into the season, but the fluidity of bullpens is most certainly visible. Closer situations have begun to work themselves out, new closers have been introduced, and other roles in bullpens are beginning to solidify. In the seemingly endless chase, fantasy owners are always trying to keep up with, […]

Player Spotlight: Mitch Haniger

Player Spotlight: Mitch Haniger

Mitch Haniger, the Seattle Mariners starting right fielder, hasn’t had the most direct path to major league stardom. Originally drafted 38th overall by the Milwaukee Brewers in the supplemental first round of the 2012 MLB Draft, Haniger was traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks along with Anthony Banda for Gerardo Parra in 2014. Despite spending the […]

The Closer Report: Week 1

The Closer Report: Week 1

It’s been a weird start for bullpens in 2017. While spring training answered some of the closer questions we had coming into the season, plenty still remain. As of April 7, we have three official “closer by committee”  situations with the Oakland Athletics, Los Angeles Angels and Cincinnati Reds. Although Cam Bedrosian and Raisel Iglesias […]

End of Spring Training: Top 10 Position Battles

End of Spring Training: Top 10 Position Battles

With the close of spring training and the final drafts taking place this weekend, opening day is finally here. Spring training numbers don’t often translate into regular season success, but it is a time where managers can take an extra look at players and toy with different lineup configurations. More importantly, teams get to settle […]

Week 15 Injury Report

Week 15 Injury Report

For most leagues this is the championship week – or next week. Either way, there is little room for error right now. At this point in the season there is very little to say. Make sure to double-check all your players prior to setting your lineup, and good luck to you this week. Darren Sproles […]

Week 14 Injury Report

Week 14 Injury Report

This is it, the culmination of what you’ve been playing for all season. Playoffs should be in full swing in every league, which means there is no tomorrow. The good news is that the injury list is rather thin this week. Most of the questionable players have been so for at least a week so […]

Week 13 Injury Report

Week 13 Injury Report

Unlike last week’s injury report, Week 13 is chalked full of fantasy relevant injuries. While this may be disastrous for some owners vying for a playoff spot, many of the players below have fairly optimistic outlooks when it comes to being able to suit up.  Since this is the last week of the regular season […]

Week 12 Injury Report

Week 12 Injury Report

While there were no teams on a bye for week 12, the injury report will be a little shorter this week due to three Thanksgiving day games already being in the books. Even with those games, the number of offensive injuries of any relevance are few and far between – consider yourself lucky and take […]

Week 11 Injury Report

Week 11 Injury Report

It’s already week 11? With just two weeks remaining before the playoffs kickoff, it can be a costly time of year to catch the injury bug. While this week’s injury report isn’t exactly a long one, there are quite a few significant names listed below. Losing one of your best players can feel like a […]

Week 10 Injury Report

Week 10 Injury Report

As fantasy owners begin to prepare for the stretch run, injuries will certainly play a role in the construction of lineups from week to week. Much like last week, this week’s injury report isn’t as dense as those in the past. With that being said, every player’s status should be confirmed before kickoff on Sunday. […]

Week 9 Injury Report

Week 9 Injury Report

Another week of monitoring the injury reports and navigating around bye weeks. Isn’t that what makes fantasy football great? Luckily, this week’s injury report is the lightest it has been in a long time. This is probably a result of six teams having a bye this time around, but it’s still refreshing nonetheless. With that […]

ROS Rankings Heading into Week 9

ROS Rankings Heading into Week 9

One of the most exciting yet frustrating aspects of fantasy football is the volatility from week to week. Injuries, depth chart changes, underachievers and breakout players dictate the pace of each game and more significantly, the entire season. Each year it seems as though more and more top draft picks don’t pan out, i.e. DeAndre […]

Week 8 Injury Report

Week 8 Injury Report

The fantasy football world was shook by yet another serious injury earlier this week. Denver Broncos’ running back C.J. Anderson suffered a knee injury last week which turned out to be a torn meniscus that will effectively end his season. This had owners scrambling to the waiver wire to add Devontae Booker, a top-ten play […]

Week 7 Injury Report

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 […]

Week 6 Injury Report

Week 6 Injury Report

Here we are again. Another week and another round of injuries for owners to work around. Keeping track of injuries throughout the week is an essential part of putting together a winning fantasy squad. Now that bye weeks are in full swing, navigating the waiver wire becomes increasingly more important as the season moves forward. […]

Week 5 Injury Report

Week 5 Injury Report

Another week and another round of injuries. Things get more interesting this time of year as we have to navigate not only injuries, but bye weeks as well. Make sure to check your lineup early in the week, hit the waiver wire to cover any bye week players as well as potential injuries – those […]

ROS Rankings Heading Into Week 4

ROS Rankings Heading Into Week 4

It’s crazy how much three weeks can change. Going into the season writers, analysts, and fantasy sites spend countless hours working on rankings only do have them destroyed by injuries, depth chart shake-ups, breakout performers, etc. But hey, that’s why we have rest of season rankings. Since we are entering the quarter mark of the […]

Week 4 Injury Report

Week 4 Injury Report

Another week of football brings with it another round of injuries for fantasy owners to deal with. While injuries are always unfortunate, we have to remember just how human this game really is. For the most part, NFL players make their money through skill and pain tolerance – the latter being just as important as […]

Week 3 Injury Report

Week 3 Injury Report

As nice as it is having football back, it sure didn’t take long for the sport to remind us how much stress it places on athlete’s bodies. With injuries as commonplace in the NFL as ever we are constantly updated, sometimes numerous times a day, on the status of players. Also, with the NFL’s new […]

Week 2 Kickoff Kit

Week 2 Kickoff Kit

What a first week of football, right!? NFL fans were treated to close games, comebacks, a little bit over overtime and game winning field goals during the first full week of the season. With all of that behind us, week two is about to kick off which brings with it plenty of tough fantasy choices. […]
