RotoBallers, as always, we’re constantly trying to come up with new features that will help you dominate your fantasy leagues. Recently, we’ve built a tool that identifies the biggest trends in a pitcher's strikeout rate over the last thirty days. The tool is for Premium subscribers only, and can be found here. Missing bats is the #1 way a... Read More

So we're officially into the second half of the season. Those fantasy pennant races are heating up, and it's no time to coast. Every win matters and there's no point in hanging on to dead weight anymore. If you have someone who is really becoming a waste of roster space, it's time to get rid... Read More

Happy Fourth of July everyone! With all the fireworks, hot dog eating, beer guzzling and all things that make America great going on (that is in no way, shape, or form a Trump endorsement) take a second to check out this week's cut list. The All-Star Break is right around the corner so the season... Read More

It's lucky Week 13 in fantasy baseball. Things are getting interesting. We have some closer upheavals, some new risers, and then obviously the fallers. As always, it's important to know when to let go in fantasy, and to drop the dead weight that may be holding your teams back. So let's get to the cuts.... Read More

So I've added a new segment to this column that I like to call "Reverse Jinx." I'm going to feature a player or two that you can't really cut, despite really wanting to, in the hopes it sparks a hot streak for that player. Worth a shot right? Anyways, it's important to know when to... Read More

It worked! Me listing Carlos Correa on the Cut List "hot list" actually sparked him. Of course I was never serious about dropping Correa, but the reverse jinx is real. Anyways, we're basically a third of the way through the season and you're getting a good grasp on how good (or bad) your team is.... Read More

The Cut List curse continues, as some more players are heating up just after I write about them here. I'm looking at you Adam Wainwright. Anyway, June is fast approaching. Some of those highly touted prospects could be up soon and that means it's time to trim the fat on your rosters to make room.... Read More

Every day, we will be taking a quick look at the best and worst fantasy baseball performers from yesterday's games. It's important to keep close tabs on what's going on around the league, especially early in the MLB season, and that's what we are here to help out with. Here's a quick look at those... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in all leagues OWNED IN: 54% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: I doubt many people expected much from Drew Pomeranz entering the season, but he's been found money so far. Pomeranz is rocking a 2.12 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 41K in 34 IP. No that's not a typo. The former first-rounder is really... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ team leagues OWNED IN: 40% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: The Oakland offense is no juggernaut, but Marcus Semien has been hot lately. Semien has eight homers on the season and 15 RBI, despite a .210 average. Over the last two weeks, Semien has hit four homers, driven in eight RBI,... Read More

BALLER MOVE: 14+ team leagues OWNED IN: 22% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: Jayson Werth got off to a miserable start this season. His average remains an uninspiring .202, but his other numbers have picked up big time--Werth has six homers on the season along with 19 RBI and 16 runs scored. He has 11 RBI... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add In All Leagues OWNED IN: 44% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Castellanos is absolutely on fire right now. The third baseman for the Tigers is hitting a cool .368 and has driven in 19 runs. His .441 BABIP suggests regression will bring that average down to earth pretty soon. The early power display... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 44% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: A popular sleeper heading into 2016, Realmuto disappointed out of the gate. Even yours truly lost patience with him. He's been on fire over the last week or so, riding an eight game hitting streak. He has two homers and five... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: You may see the lack of counting stats and wonder why I'm recommending that you pick up Asdrubal Cabrera. Well for one thing, shortstop is incredibly shallow. Cabrera also has no one really vying for his playing time, and he hits... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Drury was tearing it up for Arizona in the spring, but ultimately seemed poised for a super utility role in 2016. Things can change very quickly though, and, sure enough, it seems that Drury has carved out a starting role for... Read More
