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 […]

Changing Track Records: Cabrera, Castro and Smoak

Changing Track Records: Cabrera, Castro and Smoak

Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening — whichever is applicable to you. Three months ago, how excited were you in selecting Aaron Judge? While some of you may have been a Judge supporter, you’re kidding yourself if you thought he’d even touch the top 50 players, let alone the top spot he currently claims […]

Evaluating Potential First Round Wide Receivers

Evaluating Potential First Round Wide Receivers

Now that there has been time for all the offseason moves and draft news to be digested, it is a reasonable time to start looking at ADP. Running backs and wide receivers, as usual, dominate the first round. It is inevitable that some players just don’t belong at their current ADP, so I will take […]

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 […]

Taking a Deep Dive on Allen Robinson and DeAndre Hopkins

Taking a Deep Dive on Allen Robinson and DeAndre Hopkins

DeAndre Hopkins and Allen Robinson were routinely drafted as first round picks heading into 2016, but both finished the season outside the top 25 at the position in nearly all scoring formats. Thus, they earned the title of being a 2016 Bust. This has caused their price to come down moderately this season, but as […]

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 […]

The 2017 Fantasy Football All Dud Team

The 2017 Fantasy Football All Dud Team

One definition of a dud is “a person or thing  that proves ineffectual or a failure.” Of course, fantasy owners are hoping for an explosion of fantasy points from key players. Generally speaking the higher the player is drafted, then the more that is expected of them. With this hierarchy of value in mind, may […]

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 […]

Struggling Stars and How to View Them

Struggling Stars and How to View Them

Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening — whichever is applicable to you. No matter how many times I fly, the view at the land below never ceases to amaze me. I find it remarkable that life’s most mesmerizing views can be seen from a window around 15 inches tall and 10 inches wide. From […]

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 […]

Early Season ADP: Tight End

Early Season ADP: Tight End

The tight end position is something akin to catchers in fantasy baseball. It creates a dilemma of whether to reach and lose overall draft value to lock in consistent fantasy production or lock in talent at other positions and hope to hit on a breakout later in the draft. Just like I did with the […]

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. […]

Early Season ADP: Running Back

Early Season ADP: Running Back

I’m back to follow-up on last week’s overrated and underrated players. In this article, we’ll shift over to the running back position. This is one of the most divisive positions in the fantasy game, but no matter when you want to draft running backs, the focus should be workload and ensuring any back you draft […]

Early Season ADP: Quarterback

Early Season ADP: Quarterback

It’s never too early to start fantasy football prep. Even though the NFL draft is still two weeks away, there are already things that can be taken from early draft ADP. Today I’ll discuss three quarterbacks at their current ADP, one of which is overvalued and two that are undervalued. Ben Roethlisberger: Steelers (Overvalued) Ben […]

A 12 pack of Over/Under: Top 75 Edition

Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening — whichever is applicable to you. In the not so distant past I spent my Fall/Winter Saturday’s with a line sheet in one hand and a phone in the other. My time from Noon until the WAC kickoff was dedicated to finding that one game Vegas had simply […]
