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 […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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

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 […]

Training Camp News Heading Into Week 1

Football is here again and we are now in the prime of fantasy draft season.

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 […]

Welcome to week 21 of the waiver wire report. Each week I will dig through the f/a pool to find the best potential free agents on waivers (under 50% ownership).

Hitters to target down the stretch

Hitters to target down the stretch

Last week I outlined some under-owned pitchers that could help replace your injured studs.  This week we’ll take a look at some hitters that can help carry you down the stretch.  Probably won’t go as deep on the analysis on some of these guys since this is more about striking while the iron is hot.

If anyone has player requests this year, leave a comment. I’ll write them up for the next week or respond below.
