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 […]

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 […]

Travis Shaw and regression

Travis Shaw and regression

When Travis Shaw first came up through the Red Sox system, there was a growing fanfare about a decent prospect rising through a farm with a track record of success. And when his wRC+ went down from 116 to 87 from his first taste to his first full season, some caution was thrown around. Enough, […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 16

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Andrew McCutchen – Knee injuries have dropped his stolen base total. A thumb injury was the likely culprit for his bad batting average in 2016. As McCutchen enters his thirties, owners wonder whether he […]

Buy Low Sell High: Week15

The standard trade deadline for Yahoo leagues is August 13. It is right around the same time on other sites as well, give or take a week. That gives owners approximately one month to make a move. Some owners like to wait until the last-minute figuring the desperation among contenders will drive up prices. Others […]

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Rougned Odor – Well, Odor is providing the same power and speed as last year, and he’s on pace to match both 2016 marks. However, what’s hurt his value for those who drafted him […]

Is it time to Sell-High on Greg Holland

Is it time to Sell-High on Greg Holland

Holland is in the midst of a remarkable comeback. In 2013 and 2014 he was one of the top closers in the league, totaling 93 saves and 193 strikeouts with an ERA and WHIP of 1.33 and 0.89 respectively. Then in 2015 things went downhill. The control wasn’t there, the elite strikeout total slipped, and […]

This year he has busted out, […]

Second Half BABIP – Time to Sell

Second Half BABIP – Time to Sell

Kenny Rodgers, the Gambler, is a song that should easily resonate with fantasy players. In poker, when you get on a streak you ride it as long as it lasts. In fantasy, when you own a player that gets on a role you do the same thing. But as they always say, all good things […]

Jason Vargas’ hot start

Jason Vargas’ hot start

If anyone is talking about how they were banging the Jason Vargas drum earlier this season, you should unfollow those liars immediately. He was targeted by practically nobody; a 34-year-old who has been riddled with injuries, compiling just 12 starts over the past two years. He has a career 15.7% strikeout rate, average grounder and […]

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Cody Bellinger – If you’ve hit 9 HR in two weeks, you deserve getting mentioned in the “who’s hot” section. He has more home runs than his age, and in just a third of […]

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 […]

A trio of wild pitchers having good seasons

A trio of wild pitchers having good seasons

Location, location, location. Probably the three most important parts of being a solid pitcher in any era. Being able to work hitters eye levels is just as, if not more important, than hosting an assortment of off-speed and breaking pitches, and painting the corners is a much prettier picture in the eyes of Cy Young […]

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 […]
