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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Selling High on Avisail Garcia and Tommy Pham

Selling High on Avisail Garcia and Tommy Pham

Fantasy leagues are won and lost on making the right decisions while maximizing margins. It’s not like you’re just going to pick up Bryce Harper in the 7th round; you have to be precise with your timing as well as resources. With that in mind; here we look at a couple of outfielders who had […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Buy Low/Sell High: Week 2

Buy Low/Sell High: Week 2

Buying low and selling high is hard to do after week one. Draft day value is still attached to every player. People don’t, and shouldn’t, want to sell their top picks after a bad week. Week two gives that second data point, and second panic point. One week and the thought is it was just […]

Buy Low Sell High: Don’t put too much emphasis on Week 1

Buy Low Sell High: Don’t put too much emphasis on Week 1

Week one brings on a lot of overreaction. It is our only data point so we have nothing to compare it to. There will be a lot of confirmation bias here. People you thought were good preseason were good, so now you KNOW they are good. Same goes for bad players. Yes we know something […]

What’s going on with Dansby Swanson

What’s going on with Dansby Swanson

It’s pretty rare to see a first overall pick get traded before his first offseason is up, in any sport, but that’s exactly what the Diamondbacks did in one of the more peculiar trades not just in 2015, but over the past few seasons. They key piece back, Shelby Miller, has been pretty terrible in […]

Andrelton Simmons as an offensive weapon?

Andrelton Simmons as an offensive weapon?

Throughout his career, both as a prospect and a major leaguer, Andrelton Simmons has been touted for his elite defensive ability. While the bat was always thought to be good enough to keep him in the lineup, he was getting his starts for his glove. Scouts raved about his 80/80 defense (baseball scouting scores are […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 19

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 […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 18

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 18

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Adam Jones – He had a great career peak from 2011-14. Then the batting average, runs, and RBI came down. To be fair, you can’t fully blame him for runs and RBI. Still, it […]

Buy Low Sell Low Week 17

Buy Low Sell Low Week 17

Since this is one of the last Buy/Sells before the fantasy trade deadline, I gave you guys some extra names. Hope you enjoy and are able to pull off some deals that put you over before the deadline! Buy Michael Brantley I’m a little late to the party on this one, but I did recommend […]
