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 […]

Buy Low Sell High: Trout Fishing

Buy Low Sell High: Trout Fishing

We are now in the middle of June which means fantasy owners should have a pretty good idea where their team stands. Some teams are sitting pretty atop of the league with little to no concerns. Many are sitting right below just looking for that something extra to give them that push they need. Even […]

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 […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 11

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 […]

Is Zack Cozart actually good?

Is Zack Cozart actually good?

An almost 32-year-old with two Z’s in his full name has accumulated the second most fWAR in the majors this season, already eclipsing his previous career high by 0.6 wins in 72 fewer games. Cozart was well know early in his career for being awful offensively, albeit with enough defensive prowess to make him almost […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 10

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 […]

Trust the Process

Trust the Process

We’re going to take a quick break from my beloved “Eye Test” column. This is because the other night, I found myself singing a tune I haven’t sang much the past three years. I found myself saying these words: “I am absolutely fuming. I have the paper champ of paper champ fantasy rosters. And I’m […]

Early Impressions make Lasting Perceptions

Early Impressions make Lasting Perceptions

Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening — whichever is applicable to you. Eighteen years ago my weekend social calendar was booked with the best High School parties in town.  Twenty years ago I walked across stage for my own graduation. If you do the math that puts me a little beyond the shelf-life for […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 9

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 […]

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 […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 6

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. […]

Can Buxton, Soler Overcome Bumpy 2016?

Can Buxton, Soler Overcome Bumpy 2016?

There are a lot of young, talented outfielders for fantasy purposes, and two of the bigger names among prospects were also big disappointments in 2016: Byron Buxton and Jorge Soler. Buxton reached the top of prospects lists for the last few seasons, and he finally got his shot to play full-time when he won the […]

Early 2017 ADP Risk and Reward Players

Early 2017 ADP Risk and Reward Players

It’s almost January, and that means we’re inching closer to the start of spring training. There aren’t real drafts out there just yet, but mock draft sites are gearing up, and I thought I’d look at early ADP data for 2017. Every year, there are breakout candidates due to a strong finish. Some of these […]
