Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 3

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 3

The offseason is around the corner, so if you have questions about a player’s keeper value, ask for a stock tip! Whit Merrifield – He flashed some speed last year, but no one would have penciled him for a full season entering 2017, especially after Mondesi was named the starter. However, those who grabbed Merrifield […]

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. […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 2

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 2

The offseason is around the corner, so if you have questions about a player’s keeper value, ask for a stock tip! Dee Gordon – Did you gamble yet again on Billy Hamilton with the hope that he’d reach crazy stolen base totals? Entering 2017, I was targeting Gordon for speed, and it was the much […]

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 […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 1

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 1

The offseason is around the corner, so if you have questions about a player’s keeper value, ask for a stock tip! Jose Ramirez – Did you see this coming? I’ll answer for you: no, you didn’t. I certainly liked Ramirez as a great value entering 2017, but I never would have pegged him for 25+ […]

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 […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 25

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 25

The offseason is around the corner, so if you have questions about a player’s keeper value, ask for a stock tip! Francisco Lindor – Raise your hand if you thought Lindor would smack 30 HR this year. Yeah, you’re lying. He was supposed to be a speed-first guy with a high floor in batting average. […]

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 […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 24

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 24

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Matt Olson – Hitting 8 HR in the last 14 days will get you on the Stock Up list. Olson’s ugly average in June and no home runs in a small July sample didn’t […]

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 […]

Fantasy Baseball Playoffs: Cutting the Dead Weight

Fantasy Baseball Playoffs: Cutting the Dead Weight

This is it. Everything you have done this season all boils down to the final four weeks of the season. At this point the only thing that matter is production. Unfortunately, even five months into the season, fantasy owners are still hanging onto, and in some case even playing, players that they spent a high […]

Staying away from Ervin Santana

Staying away from Ervin Santana

While being known as a nuisance with the Angels, based off of extreme talent combined with inconsistent performance, Santana really found his stride the past few seasons splitting time with the Braves, Royals and now the Twins. Santana at his best keeps his ERA in the low 3.00s, can get average strikeout rates, and limit […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 23

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 23

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Kevin Kiermaier – That long injury ruined his season in terms of total stats, but his keeper potential is all the better because of it, if you can trade for him on the cheap. […]

Julio Teheran’s wheels are falling off

Julio Teheran’s wheels are falling off

Throughout his career, Julio Teheran has been one of the more enigmatic players in his peer groups. He went from uber-prospect pitching phenom, to dropping his stock heavily, and then brought it back up again before his major league debut. He had a fantastic couple of seasons to start his career before a tough 2015, […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 22

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 22

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Jorge Polanco – He didn’t have a bad showing in 2016, with a line drive approach and enough power and speed to make him interesting. He’s been hot in August, so is he taking […]

Waiver Wire Report: Week 21

Waiver Wire Report: Week 21

Welcome to week 21 of the waiver wire report. Each week I will dig through the f/a pool to find the best potential free agents on waivers (under 50% ownership). Some are good for a quick boost, others could be good long-term additions, and there will be a few speculative adds thrown in there as […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 21

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 21

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Brian Dozier – It’s going to be another successful, elite 2B season from Dozier, and his recent hot streak can’t hurt. The one nitpick is that he’s not the most consistent player when it […]

Training Camp News Worth Paying Attention To

Training Camp News Worth Paying Attention To

At this point in training camp, there is news constantly flooding Twitter, Rotoworld, and other sports news platforms. Though some of that is certainly valuable, it’s difficult to sort through important news and noise. That said, this article will discuss three noteworthy reports over the past week with analysis as to how that news affects […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 20

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 20

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Eddie Rosario – I’ve liked him for several seasons, but a lack of playing time and the inability to put everything together has forced him to develop slowly. However, he has made important steps […]
