Is J.T. Realmuto the new top dog at the catcher position?

When it comes to the catcher position┬áBuster Posey has been the gold standard, especially in keeper leagues. Prior to 2017 his name consistently appeared in the top-5 at the end of the season, not only at the position but in most of the standard scoring categories. The general consensus when it came to catchers was […]

Fantasy Baseball is over – or is it?

Five years ago, almost to the day, fantasyassembly.com went live. It seems so long ago, and at the same time it feels like only yesterday. None of us imaged that five years later, not only would we still be going strong, but expanding to cover football, basketball, hockey and DFS. It just goes to show […]

Field of Streams: Week 25 Weekend Streamers

We’ll keep things simple for those faithful few who are still playing. If ERA and WHIP are blown then stream away. If those two categories are close then stream with caution.

2018 Waiver Wire Report: Week 25 – Championship Edition

It’s all about who’s hot and who’s not – plain and simple. Production is all that matters, something I’ve repeated many times over the past month and will continue to do so until the season ends. It doesn’t matter if the numbers are supported by metrics or it’s good old fashion luck. Anyone that is […]

Field of Streams: Week 24 Weekend Streamers

At this point there is no need for a lengthy introduction. You know the risks of streaming and what’s at stake so no need to beat a dead horse (who came up with that analogy). Stream if you must, and as I said last week, pick up the best streaming options even if you don’t […]

DFS Players to Target Heading into Week 2

Week one showed us a lot. Among other things, we learned that Aaron Rodgers only needs one leg to mount an amazing comeback victory, that the Raiders organization must collectively have a sub-average IQ for letting Khalil Mack go, that Ryan Fitzpatrick is not messing around, that we should not have started Big Ben, and […]

2018 All Value team

Fantasy Value comes in many forms. Drafting a player late and having him exceed his draft position is considered value. Picking up a player off waivers who performs as good as or better than your starters is considered value. And trading for players that fall into either one of those categories while playing a minimum […]
