Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 25

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 25

The offseason is around the corner, so if you have questions about a player’s keeper value, ask for a stock tip! Francisco Lindor – Raise your hand if you thought Lindor would smack 30 HR this year. Yeah, you’re lying. He was supposed to be a speed-first guy with a high floor in batting average. […]

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 […]

Waiver Wire Report: Week 24

Waiver Wire Report: Week 24

Monday begins week 24, leaving one to two weeks remaining depending on your league setting. This also mean there are only two to four teams paying attention in H2H leagues and maybe two or three in roto – minus those few rogue managers who actually play out the entire season, and a big Kudos to […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 24

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Matt Olson – Hitting 8 HR in the last 14 days will get you on the Stock Up list. Olson’s ugly average in June and no home runs in a small July sample didn’t […]

Waiver Wire Report: Week 23

Waiver Wire Report: Week 23

Monday begins week 23 which means all H2H league should be in playoff mode, and those in roto leagues have three more week to catch the leader. The other day I highlighted 10 players you should consider dropping, or at least benching, for the fantasy playoffs. If you are wondering who to drop from your […]

Fantasy Baseball Playoffs: Cutting the Dead Weight

Fantasy Baseball Playoffs: Cutting the Dead Weight

This is it. Everything you have done this season all boils down to the final four weeks of the season. At this point the only thing that matter is production. Unfortunately, even five months into the season, fantasy owners are still hanging onto, and in some case even playing, players that they spent a high […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 23

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Kevin Kiermaier – That long injury ruined his season in terms of total stats, but his keeper potential is all the better because of it, if you can trade for him on the cheap. […]

Waiver Wire Report: Week 22

Waiver Wire Report: Week 22

This is the best time of the season. First of all it’s Labor Day so happy holiday to all those celebrating, or at least relaxing with a well deserved day off. Labor Day also signifies back to school time in most states, or at least in New Jersey, so no more damn kids playing on […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 22

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Jorge Polanco – He didn’t have a bad showing in 2016, with a line drive approach and enough power and speed to make him interesting. He’s been hot in August, so is he taking […]

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 […]

Waiver Wire Report: Week 21

Waiver Wire Report: Week 21

Welcome to week 21 of the waiver wire report. Each week I will dig through the f/a pool to find the best potential free agents on waivers (under 50% ownership). 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 […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 21

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Brian Dozier – It’s going to be another successful, elite 2B season from Dozier, and his recent hot streak can’t hurt. The one nitpick is that he’s not the most consistent player when it […]

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. […]

Death of the Starting Pitcher

Death of the Starting Pitcher

Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening — whichever is applicable to you. The timeline of someones life is constantly being updated. Two months ago my family and I attended a destination wedding for my nephew. Each day was filled with countless laughs and wonderful memories that will last a lifetime, small increments along the […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Great Debate: Rhys Hoskins vs Dominic Smith

The Great Debate: Rhys Hoskins vs Dominic Smith

This past week two of the premier prospects in baseball got called up. Rhys Hoskins and Dominic Smith. If you had either one you were ecstatic. If either was available in your league you most likely ran to your computer to add one of them. This sparked the great debate in fantasy this week and […]

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 […]

Buy and Sell: Trade Deadline

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 […]
