Inside the MI Keeper Ranking Process

Inside the MI Keeper Ranking Process

As I prepare my yearly Fantasy Assembly rankings for keeper leagues, I wanted to share some of my observations and my ranking process. Keeper leagues are trickier than a redraft league. There are numerous factors to consider, with projected long-term value a big part of it. You have to look harder at age and health, […]

Dynasty Off-Season Step 1: Bowl Game Scouting

Dynasty Off-Season Step 1: Bowl Game Scouting

As the NFL regular season and fantasy leagues begin to wind down, we can begin to turn our attention to the busy months ahead. Just because there aren’t any fantasy matchups to set our lineups for during the offseason doesn’t mean we shouldn’t keep working to improve our rosters. A successful offseason can turn a […]

Buy low/sell high: The deadline approaches

Buy low/sell high: The deadline approaches

With a lot of trade deadlines either passed or over this week, this might be your last chance to add someone to a playoff run. Rather than the normal buy low, I am just going with buys this week. The idea is still the same. Instead of buying someone at the bottom of their value, […]

Buy low/sell high

Buy low/sell high

This week is the last week of byes and where depth should no longer matter. There are very little fantasy ramifications for this week as well. With only the Colts, 49ers, Jets, and Panthers on bye, no team is really going to be devastated unless it is a super deep league. I have been saying […]

Sell ‘Em: Keeper League Pitchers

Sell ‘Em: Keeper League Pitchers

Hello all, hopefully you’re having a terrific hump day. As I sat down to compose this article, the news of Roy Halladay’s plane crash was beginning to emerge through the different media sources. While I’ll be touching on pitchers to sell high on today, I want to take a moment to touch on Doc. Halladay […]

Buy low/sell high: Time for a playoff run

Buy low/sell high: Time for a playoff run

At this point in the season many of us know what our teams are. You are in the playoffs and going for a bye, on the cusp of the playoffs, or out of it completely. If you are going for a bye I think you really need to prioritize getting the bye over building a […]

Sell ‘Em: Keeper League Outfield

Sell ‘Em: Keeper League Outfield

We’re coming to you a day later than the past couple weeks, but the read will still be the same! Today’s article touches on the outfield position. In case you missed it, catch up on the past weeks articles which focused on Middle Infield and Corner Infield. With the vast number of outfielders in baseball […]

Buy Low/Sell High: Byes aren’t over

Buy Low/Sell High: Byes aren’t over

It is weird to even think, but we are now about two-thirds of the way through the fantasy regular season if you play through week 13. If you are able to avoid the killer bye week part two without too much damage it might be time to prepare that bench for the stretch run. That […]

NFL Breakout Candidates for the Season’s Second Half

NFL Breakout Candidates for the Season’s Second Half

One of the constants of fantasy football, and dynasty in particular, is the unpredictability of player production and value. We do our best to predict who will perform and who will not, but anything from injuries, to coaching, to simply mis-evaluating a player’s talent can get in the way of us successfully predicting performances. In […]

Sell ‘Em: Keeper League Corner Infield

Sell ‘Em: Keeper League Corner Infield

Hello all, hopefully you’re having a terrific hump day! Last week we touched on the middle infielders you’d have the best chance at selling high on. Today the focus shifts to the corner infield positions, and let me tell you; there are a lot of aging stars at the corners. One strong name that initially […]

Buy Low Sell High: “Buy” Weeks

Buy Low Sell High: “Buy” Weeks

Buy weeks  for the next two weeks are hitting fantasy owners hard because six teams are on a bye during each of the next two weeks. These are the weeks where trades seem to fly around left and right because teams need to fill bye week holes on their rosters. I preached it over and […]

Sell ‘Em: Keeper League Middle Infield

Sell ‘Em: Keeper League Middle Infield

Hello all, hopefully you’re having a terrific hump day! I’m going to be introducing a bit of a new segment over the next couple weeks revolving around players near the end of their “prime years” I view as sell-high candidates in keeper leagues as we move toward the 2018 season. What years are a player’s […]

Buy Low Sell High: Another Star Goes Down

Buy Low Sell High: Another Star Goes Down

The NFL can be brutal sometimes. We again lost the privilege of watching one of the best players in the world play when Rodgers was likely lost for the season with a broken collarbone. This year you could argue the top QB (Rodgers), RB (Johnson), WR (Beckham), defensive player (Watt) all are on the IR. […]

What We Have and Haven’t Learned Through Week 5

What We Have and Haven’t Learned Through Week 5

Talking about what we’ve learned so far is a common topic of fantasy discussion in the early parts of the year. Two weeks ago I even planned out a post that would break down the topic, before I realized that the 2017 RB Class was just too exciting to not be the focus of its […]

Buy Low Sell High: Another injury week

Buy Low Sell High: Another injury week

This was another brutal fantasy week. Four fantasy friendly offenses were on bye and more fantasy stars went down with injury. I think panic will set in from teams that had low scores this week and are sitting at 2-3 or worse. With more bye weeks coming you can always go out and target those […]

A trio of breakout pitchers to target in 2018

A trio of breakout pitchers to target in 2018

Every year we get breakouts and breakdowns, so it should come as no surprise that we got plenty of both in 2017. Some of the breakouts were unique thanks to the (allegedly) juiced baseballs, seeing plenty of guys hit for more power than they seemed capable of. And while we saw an unprecedented power surge […]

Buy low/sell high: Bye weeks

Buy low/sell high: Bye weeks

I tried to find buy lows and sell highs this week and I struggled a lot more than I expected to. Just like every other week there will be someone on Tuesday that I realize should have made the cut here. But this week, most of the high performers felt like good options to keep, […]

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; […]

Buy Low/Sell High: Trading Season is Here

Buy Low/Sell High: Trading Season is Here

Right around week three is where trading season really opens up. We are far enough into the year that injuries have gotten to some teams, and we can start taking a stance on players. Whether that means realizing roles aren’t what we though, teams being not what we though, and players just being better or […]
