Buying high on Francisco Lindor

Buying high on Francisco Lindor

I’m not one to usually market the buy-high trade. Instead, I would much rather spill some virtual ink on the buy-lows and sell highs of the sport. But every now and then a guy pops up with a breakout season who warrants enough attention to be put in the group. It’s not exactly a surprise […]

The Dynasty Football Injury Report

The Dynasty Football Injury Report

Through training camp, preseason, and just 1 week of the NFL regular season, the injuries are already starting to mount across the league. If you’re like me you have already seen your dynasty team (or teams) take some hits. But don’t worry. Everything will be ok. I’m here to tell you what to do with […]

Can Ronald Acuna get me on a flight to Arizona?

Can Ronald Acuna get me on a flight to Arizona?

Roughly five and a half hours from NY: $277 round trip (for now), hotel, food and miscellaneous expenses. Is it possible that could be considered a reasonable price to see Ronald Acuna play baseball? Against players of lesser talent nonetheless. It just might be. Not often does a potential generational player hit the Arizona Fall […]

Veto the Veto

Veto the Veto

Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening — whichever is applicable to you. In 2015 Forbes Magazine posted an online article that estimated 95 billion dollars was wagered on NFL and College Football yearly. Unfortunately for yours truly I found myself contributing to this cause for far too long. I once approached line spreads with […]

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 […]

Minor League Report: Awards and All-Prospect Team

Minor League Report: Awards and All-Prospect Team

As a long season comes to an end I figured what better way to wrap up this season’s report than with some awards and an all prospect team. Last chance Hitter – Juan Soto: Soto spent most of the year on the DL. Next year he is going to fly up lists when he plays […]

Preseason Dynasty Waiver Targets

Preseason Dynasty Waiver Targets

With the preseason finally wrapping up this week and the regular season just a short weeks away (finally!), I thought now would be a great time to highlight a few preseason standouts who may be worth a stash on the back-end of your rosters. While some of our other football writers will be doing some […]

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, […]

Minor League Report: Things Can Change Quickly

Minor League Report: Things Can Change Quickly

You don’t realize how fast things can change until you ignore it for a week. The one minor exception is Minor league stuff, which doesn’t seems to drastically change in a week. Sure, a guy or two can get called up, but a lot of times it is something that people have been anticipating for […]

A Swing and a Miss with Miguel Cabrera

A Swing and a Miss with Miguel Cabrera

Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening — whichever is applicable to you. This game of fantasy can be frustrating. So much time and effort goes into building each and every team we own. Not a single one of us has left a draft table feeling that we are walking out of there with a […]

Manuel Margot’s future promise

Manuel Margot’s future promise

When the Red Sox acquired elite closer Craig Kimbrel, they were forced to send off four promising prospects to make it happen. Leading the way was outfielder Manuel Margot, who at the time was Baseball America’s 24th best prospect during its midseason report. Margot boasted plus contact and power tools with borderline elite base-running and […]

Your Fantasy Football Guide To Tearing It All Down and Rebuilding

Your Fantasy Football Guide To Tearing It All Down and Rebuilding

Two weeks ago, I wrote my first article for Fantasy Assembly talking about trade targets for rebuilding and contending teams. However, I didn’t delve into what exactly a rebuilding team looked like compared to a contending team. Today, I will explain the difference between the two and outline what to do if you’re team does […]

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 […]

Minor League Report: The final stretch

Minor League Report: The final stretch

We are already halfway through August. And while that is awesome for those of us in playoff races, us prospect people have less than a month of regular season minor league baseball left. We do have the Arizona Fall League to look forward to, but in many leagues add drops are closed by then and […]

The Great Debate: Rhys Hoskins vs Dominic Smith

The Great Debate: Rhys Hoskins vs Dominic Smith

This past week two of the premier prospects in baseball got called up. Rhys Hoskins and Dominic Smith. If you had either one you were ecstatic. If either was available in your league you most likely ran to your computer to add one of them. This sparked the great debate in fantasy this week and […]

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 […]

Minor League Report: Never Give Up

Minor League Report: Never Give Up

A lot of trade deadlines have passed or are quickly approaching, but in dynasty leagues some will still have trading opportunity.  This is also a time to find the potential deep prospects to make a rise in 2018. In shallower keeper and dynasty formats, players that have had big success in high-A are typically guys […]

Dynasty Targets for Contenders and Rebuilders

Dynasty Targets for Contenders and Rebuilders

One of my favorite aspects of fantasy football has always been trading. Nothing beats tinkering with the details of a deal until you get it just right and both parties can walk away satisfied. But trading in fantasy football – and dynasty in particular – isn’t just a fun part of the game. Trading is […]

Minor League Report: Prospects on the move

Minor League Report: Prospects on the move

The trade deadline was boring for a while as I sat around looking at the potential names to put in here around 2 o’clock. Luckily there was some late deals that helped beef up this article a bit. I feel like I have been saying this for months, but don’t be the guy afraid to […]

An Early Look at the 2018 Draft

An Early Look at the 2018 Draft

Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening — whichever is applicable to you. Hope springs eternal is the clichéd fallacy many MLB fan-bases will often site in early April. Due to varying finances, roster composition, and organizational direction; before the first game is played 10-15 MLB teams have no chance at competing for a playoff […]
