Waiver Wire Week 15

Waiver Wire Week 15

I keep adjusting this because ownership percentages are so whacky this time of the year. I am no longer using any sort of cutoff for ownership percentage. Instead I am doing players that I feel as though have a good chance to be on waiver wires in 10 and 12 team leagues. At this point […]

NFL Waiver Wire Week 14

NFL Waiver Wire Week 14

There is very little to be excited about on waivers this week. Maybe your league is different, but overall the pickings are thin. We are at the point, and really have been for a week or two, where if there is something on the wire you want, use your claim or use all the FAAB […]

Is Eric Thames Legit?

Is Eric Thames Legit?

In maybe the most asked question of the first half, and another highly talked about story-line in the offseason, people have been wondering what on earth happened to Eric Thames. The last of him in the States before his comeback was on his third team by age 26, hadn’t made it back to the majors […]

Waiver Wire Week 13

Waiver Wire Week 13

The waiver wire comes a day early this week as most fantasy regular seasons are about to come to a close. This will be similar to last week as I have it broken into categories rather than a strict 1-20 list. If you don’t need a win this week, look to week 14 and add […]

NFL Waiver Wire Week 12

NFL Waiver Wire Week 12

In most leagues there are only a few weeks left where you will be battling it out with the whole league for waivers. As I have been saying for a week or two, at this point waivers are now really dependant on the situation of your team. This time of the year is about handcuffing […]

NFL Waiver Wire Week 11

NFL Waiver Wire Week 11

I alluded to this last week, but waivers get really hard to write and rank this time of the year. A lot of guys are owned, and teams are in such different spots rest of season wise. Marlon Mack does little good for someone who is 4-6 and needing a win, while Damien Williams is […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 5

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 5

The offseason is around the corner, so if you have questions about a player’s keeper value, ask for a stock tip! Jonathan Schoop – He had nice sleeper value entering 2016 and produced well, raising his profile (and price) for 2017. Now he’s fully broken out and will cost a lot for 2018, whether redraft […]

NFL Waiver Wire Week 10

NFL Waiver Wire Week 10

If you are ok with your starting lineup for the most part this is a week for you to let others use their money and you pick up some handcuffs or high upside players cheap. If you need a win or some upside this is where you shoot your shot and blow what you have […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 4

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 4

The offseason is around the corner, so if you have questions about a player’s keeper value, ask for a stock tip! Justin Upton – How many years have we been waiting for Upton to reach his full potential? It seems that the days of dreaming about a .290, 40 HR season are over, but 2017 […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 9

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 9

This week there are some interesting options, that is if they are still available. Unfortunately, in many leagues, those interesting options such as Collins, JuJu, and Mack are already owned. If that’s the case for your league, there are few  players of interest on the wire. I would try to add Vernon Davis even if […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 8

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 8

Waivers this week are much different than in weeks past because of how many people need a Right Now starting option. Typically it feels like we are looking for future starters or just potential for future weeks. This week you might be grabbing guys like Kenny Golladay instead of taking the flier on Corey Davis. […]

Expecting the Unexpected: Ramirez, Heyward & Gallo

Expecting the Unexpected: Ramirez, Heyward & Gallo

Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening — whichever is applicable to you. Four years ago my son started his High School Soccer career. His first season featured a Senior Class of 13 players. I recall being warned, by each senior parent, of just how quickly the time goes by. The warnings of yesteryear became […]

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 […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 7

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 7

This might be the ugliest week for waivers so far. It makes sense as we hit bye weeks and there are fewer games and less opportunities for someone to pop. This week hit some teams hard with the loss of multiple starters, I know in one league I personally lost Rodgers, Tate, and Sanders. I […]

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 […]

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 […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 6

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 6

After a week where there were players to be had everywhere, this week the waiver wire has a lot less to offer. This week’s injuries didn’t lead to obvious replacements like last week’s injuries did. If you really need a plug and play starter you might be out of luck. You may have some options […]

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+ […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 5

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 5

Depending on how you look at week four, it was either really rough or really beneficial. If you lost Dalvin Cook, Ty Montgomery or Chris Carson you are probably hurting at the running back position. Cook and Montgomery were likely cornerstones of your teams as guys drafted around the top 40. While you might not […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 4

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 4

Week three was a bit of a let down in terms of waivers outside of one name. There were very few injuries and performances from players that aren’t owned that actually inspire optimism. No, I am not at all interested in Marcedes Lewis or Geronimo Allison. Others that were good performers for the most part […]
