Sell ‘Em: Keeper League Middle Infield

Sell ‘Em: Keeper League Middle Infield

Hello all, hopefully you’re having a terrific hump day! I’m going to be introducing a bit of a new segment over the next couple weeks revolving around players near the end of their “prime years” I view as sell-high candidates in keeper leagues as we move toward the 2018 season. What years are a player’s […]

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. […]

What We Have and Haven’t Learned Through Week 5

What We Have and Haven’t Learned Through Week 5

Talking about what we’ve learned so far is a common topic of fantasy discussion in the early parts of the year. Two weeks ago I even planned out a post that would break down the topic, before I realized that the 2017 RB Class was just too exciting to not be the focus of its […]

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 […]

A trio of breakout pitchers to target in 2018

A trio of breakout pitchers to target in 2018

Every year we get breakouts and breakdowns, so it should come as no surprise that we got plenty of both in 2017. Some of the breakouts were unique thanks to the (allegedly) juiced baseballs, seeing plenty of guys hit for more power than they seemed capable of. And while we saw an unprecedented power surge […]

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, […]

Potential Keeper League targets for 2018

Potential Keeper League targets for 2018

The 2017 season is coming to a close. My season has been a bit of a disappointment as it’s looking like this will be the first one in a long time where I will not be bringing home any hardware. Even so, I fielded playoff and/or highly competitive teams in eight of the nine leagues; […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 19

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 19

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Eduardo Nunez – Changing teams hasn’t slowed him down — if anything, he’s picked it up a bit since joining Boston. The super utility glove is also providing much-needed batting average and steals, and […]

Buy and Sell: Trade Deadline

Buy and Sell: Trade Deadline

I am writing this on my birthday, but I hope to give you some gifts here. For many of you, this will be the last week you can pull off a trade before the deadline. Hopefully some of these targets will help. Buy Sonny Gray: Yankees I profiled Sonny Gray back in May, still like […]

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 […]

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 […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 18

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 […]

Buy Low Sell Low Week 17

Buy Low Sell Low Week 17

Since this is one of the last Buy/Sells before the fantasy trade deadline, I gave you guys some extra names. Hope you enjoy and are able to pull off some deals that put you over before the deadline! Buy Michael Brantley I’m a little late to the party on this one, but I did recommend […]

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, […]
