Running Back Touchdown Regression

Running Back Touchdown Regression

Touchdowns are king in fantasy football. A player’s entire fantasy outlook any given week can change with a trip (or two) to the end zone and go from a major disappointment to a week winning performance. Given that, it’s worth looking at players who will likely regress both positively and negatively. In this article, I […]

Bauer and Estrada: A pair of second half bloomers

Bauer and Estrada: A pair of second half bloomers

Baseball, by nature, is a sport of luck. In any game, you can see a fielder simply be just out of position on a double play ball, a pitcher can throw a curveball out of the zone that gets hit into the gap, hard hit balls will still find gloves anywhere on the field. Of […]

Kyle Rudolph is the mid-round tight end to target

Kyle Rudolph is the mid-round tight end to target

The tight end position is similar to that of quarterback in that there are only a few elite options who clearly separate themselves from the rest of the position. After that, however, the position becomes a jumbled mess where it becomes difficult to separate one player from another. Of that pack at the tight end […]

Two Deep Sleepers at Running Back

Two Deep Sleepers at Running Back

Sleeper and breakout columns are common topics at this point of the summer in the lead-up to fantasy football season, yet it seems that the same names are recycled on every site. This season, common favorites include Ty Montgomery (who has seen his ADP skyrocket from the 10th to 5th round since January) and Tevin […]

Pitch Count: Week 12 Waiver Wire Streaming Options

Pitch Count: Week 12 Waiver Wire Streaming Options

With the continued rash of injuries, teams using the new 10-day DL to their advantage, and the passing of the Super 2 deadline, the free agent pitching pool continues to change rapidly in 2017. It’s easy to get fooled by small sample sizes as young pitchers get called up for their first shot at the […]

Pitch Count: Week 11 Waiver Wire Streamer Options

Pitch Count: Week 11 Waiver Wire Streamer Options

Our resident streaming and waiver wire pitcher expect, Marc Goldstein, was placed on the 10-Day DL retroactive to April 5. He should be able to return as soon as eligible which means he will be back here next week. I’ve been summoned from the bullpen to make the spot start today. Unlike other bullpen arms, […]

Taking a Deep Dive on Allen Robinson and DeAndre Hopkins

Taking a Deep Dive on Allen Robinson and DeAndre Hopkins

DeAndre Hopkins and Allen Robinson were routinely drafted as first round picks heading into 2016, but both finished the season outside the top 25 at the position in nearly all scoring formats. Thus, they earned the title of being a 2016 Bust. This has caused their price to come down moderately this season, but as […]

Pitch Count: Week 10 Waiver Wire Streamer Options

Pitch Count: Week 10 Waiver Wire Streamer Options

I’ve always been a big fan of Kenny Rogers’ The Gambler. You’ve got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em. This is basically the theme song for streaming pitchers and managing a fantasy baseball pitching staff, especially in 2017. Below is a list of pitchers who are owned in less than […]

2017 Bounce Back Candidates: Quarterback

2017 Bounce Back Candidates: Quarterback

The quarterback position features a number of players who can be counted on year after year to provide elite numbers. Their names are well-known and include Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, and Andrew Luck. Otherwise, most quarterbacks experience some seasons that are better for fantasy production than others. Both Cam Newton and Eli Manning […]

Pitch Count: Week 9 Waiver Wire Streaming Options

Streaming pitchers can be fun and exciting, but isn’t there comfort in settling down? (Insert whichever emoji you think is appropriate)  This week we continue to take a look at the current pitching landscape with a focus on the week ahead, taking advantage of good matchups for the quick fix in the short-term, but also […]

2017 Bounce Back Candidates: Running Back

2017 Bounce Back Candidates: Running Back

The running back position bounced back as a whole in 2016 compared to the overall performance in 2015. That doesn’t mean that some running backs did not disappoint, however, and that provides the fantasy community with some bounce-back candidates heading into 2017. Thomas Rawls: Seattle Seahawks Thomas Rawls was a trendy name during draft season […]

Pitch Count: Week 8 Waiver Wire Streaming Options

At this point in the season, most of the pitchers available to be added in the fantasy world have flaws and risk – hence their lower ownership levels. Every once in a while a potential star emerges.  Jose Berrios was highlighted in this space for the past two weeks as a speculative add.  Last week, […]

Pitch Count: Week 7 Waiver Wire Streaming Options

Pitch Count: Week 7 Waiver Wire Streaming Options

Another week off the calendar, and another week of numerous health concerns for MLB pitchers.  As players are shuffling on and off the DL at record pace (partly due to the new 10-day time frame), it becomes very easy for fantasy owners to see players as a pile of statistics, adding and dropping, jumping from […]

Early Season ADP: Tight End

Early Season ADP: Tight End

The tight end position is something akin to catchers in fantasy baseball. It creates a dilemma of whether to reach and lose overall draft value to lock in consistent fantasy production or lock in talent at other positions and hope to hit on a breakout later in the draft. Just like I did with the […]

Pitch Count: Week 6 Waiver Wire Streaming Options

Pitch Count: Week 6 Waiver Wire Streaming Options

Down goes Syndergaard.  Down goes Kluber.  Down goes Paxton.  The pitching landscape took another big hit this week as we are reminded again of the volatility and uncertainty of today’s major league pitcher.  It’s difficult to imagine any fantasy team that hasn’t been affected, and we may need to begin re-thinking the construction of our […]
