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 […]

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 […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 25

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 25

The offseason is around the corner, so if you have questions about a player’s keeper value, ask for a stock tip! Francisco Lindor – Raise your hand if you thought Lindor would smack 30 HR this year. Yeah, you’re lying. He was supposed to be a speed-first guy with a high floor in batting average. […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 2

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 2

Week two provides a little more clarity as we get a second week of sample sizes. A couple of players that were on waiver wires last week are still there, but the price just got a lot higher – in the same way the price has gone down on several others. I think people sometimes […]

Waiver Saviors

Waiver Saviors

After another minor hiatus, I’m back with the latest and most likely final waiver saviors article to try and help you bring home the hardware.  Not to toot my own horn (too late), but hopefully you’ve been listening to the past several columns as many of these recommendations have really shaped up.  Jim Finch also […]

Waiver Wire Report: Week 24

Waiver Wire Report: Week 24

Monday begins week 24, leaving one to two weeks remaining depending on your league setting. This also mean there are only two to four teams paying attention in H2H leagues and maybe two or three in roto – minus those few rogue managers who actually play out the entire season, and a big Kudos to […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 24

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 24

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Matt Olson – Hitting 8 HR in the last 14 days will get you on the Stock Up list. Olson’s ugly average in June and no home runs in a small July sample didn’t […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 1

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 1

Early season waivers are different than the middle weeks when bye weeks start to hit hard. Early in the year, all you are looking for is a breakout more often than not. Circumstances are different in deeper leagues with like 14-16 teams. There, finding someone who could be a five catch for 70 yard receiver […]

Waiver Wire Report: Week 23

Waiver Wire Report: Week 23

Monday begins week 23 which means all H2H league should be in playoff mode, and those in roto leagues have three more week to catch the leader. The other day I highlighted 10 players you should consider dropping, or at least benching, for the fantasy playoffs. If you are wondering who to drop from your […]

Fantasy Baseball Playoffs: Cutting the Dead Weight

Fantasy Baseball Playoffs: Cutting the Dead Weight

This is it. Everything you have done this season all boils down to the final four weeks of the season. At this point the only thing that matter is production. Unfortunately, even five months into the season, fantasy owners are still hanging onto, and in some case even playing, players that they spent a high […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 23

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 23

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Kevin Kiermaier – That long injury ruined his season in terms of total stats, but his keeper potential is all the better because of it, if you can trade for him on the cheap. […]

Waiver Wire Report: Week 22

Waiver Wire Report: Week 22

This is the best time of the season. First of all it’s Labor Day so happy holiday to all those celebrating, or at least relaxing with a well deserved day off. Labor Day also signifies back to school time in most states, or at least in New Jersey, so no more damn kids playing on […]

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 […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Week 22

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below. Jorge Polanco – He didn’t have a bad showing in 2016, with a line drive approach and enough power and speed to make him interesting. He’s been hot in August, so is he taking […]

More Waiver Help for Injured Studs

More Waiver Help for Injured Studs

I know a lot of you are probably hurting. Quite a few of my teams are banged up right now. One of my playoff teams featured every single one of these guys: Paxton, Wood, Altuve, Santana, Conforto, Cespedes, Rosenthal, Brantley, and Gallo. All of them, along with countless others, have gone down for either a […]
