It might seem like I drew the short straw among the prospect analysts here at Rotoballer, but I actually picked this assignment! You won’t see many of these names on top 100 lists. Despite being one of the positions from which teams expect to get the most offensive production, first base gets the least amount... Read More

Starting pitcher Alex Wood, catcher Kyle Farmer, and outfielders Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig are trading Dodger blue for the bright kit of the Cincinnati Reds. The trio was traded for Homer Bailey and prospects in what was essentially a salary dump for Los Angeles as they attempt to sign or trade for more superstars.... Read More

A report recently came to light that the San Francisco Giants were making first baseman and owner of a genuine super-beard, Brandon Belt, available in trades. Apparently, there are teams interested in the oft-injured slugger, despite the whopping $48 million due to him over the next three years. It’s not terribly surprising that Belt is available,... Read More

Over the weekend, the New York Mets and the Seattle Mariners closed a long-gestating agreement to exchange money, pro talent, and young assets. The M’s continued their descent into “Tank City” by unloading slugger Robinson Cano and his $120 million contract along with cheap All-Star closer Edwin Diaz in exchange for less expensive but less...

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of leagues ANALYSIS: Miami Marlins outfielder/first baseman Peter O'Brien completely evaded my radar until I spun up my usual tools for finding and picking out waiver wire adds. However, while I usually would just chalk up a line like .294/.375/.647 and three dingers over his... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of leagues ANALYSIS: Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar has been talked about a lot over the course of the 2018 season, so I won’t belabor the point. The Blue Jays’ centerfielder is one of the few players you need to watch for where he’s... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of leagues ANALYSIS: Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson is one of my favorite fantasy assets. He also happens to be one of the most misunderstood. The fact that his ownership percentage is at 18% is evidence of this fact. To their credit, the Dodgers... Read More

RotoBallers, I’ll dispense with the nonsense this week. The vast majority of you will be skipping the few paragraphs of color I offer prior to getting to the good stuff. If you’re here, you’re playing for dollars, belts, and glory. If you do read this, then let me once again put forth my impassioned plea... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of leagues ANALYSIS: Tampa Bay Rays second baseman/outfielder Brandon Lowe has made his mark on baseball over a short period of time. We don’t know where the Rays find these guys, but here’s another no-name utility player who has played a critical role in Tampa’s improbable... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of leagues ANALYSIS: Anyway, if you are not familiar with St. Louis Cardinals 23-year-old utilityman Yairo Munoz, he was the key piece that came back in the trade for outfielder Stephen Piscotty. Widely regarded as bat-first, he disappointed slightly in his rookie season. Plagued by injury... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of leagues ANALYSIS: Colorado Rockies outfielder David Dahl was not one of our better calls in the pre-season. We argued that, with health, Dahl would be a solid value on his draft position. Unfortunately, the “with health” part didn’t pan out. Once again,  Dahl succumbed... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 21% of leagues ANALYSIS: New York Mets outfielder Jay Bruce has had an up-and-down 2018 season. Bruce has been really bad, save for spurts of very good production that have led to a somewhat salvaged line of .227/.306/.365 with just six home runs and a .137 ISO on 284... Read More

If you’re still reading Rotoballer’s amazing, awesome, crazy, undefeated, never failing, overpowered waiver wire coverage, then wipe the dirt off your shoulder because your postseason is still rolling. That’s what’s up, Rotoballers. That’s what’s up. You know your boy is still rolling. I’m about to pull in a W in the Rotoballer staff Ottoneu league,... Read More

Happy Birthday to me, Rotoballers! But I guess most of you don’t care so much about my birthday. While that is quite hurtful, I get it. No hard feelings. I’ll go cry to my beautiful fiancée and stare at my multiple fantasy championship belts. That’s right, multiple belts. How’d I get multiple belts from different... Read More

I did a few mocks recently in preparation for a long-running league I won last season. 10 teams, ESPN standard scoring; nothing fancy just a group of buddies who started it to find more reasons to watch football together. The casual nature of the league has extended itself to the draft prep process, especially since... Read More

It’s reasonable to be a little bearish on the Teddy Bridgewater’s chances of playing a real NFL snap in 2018. In fact, it’s actually a safe bet. Las Vegas sports books would agree with that assertion, by the way. Of five prominent sports books that provided futures odds on quarterbacks to win the passing yards... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Dynasty Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of leagues ANALYSIS: Cincinnati Reds outfielder Jesse Winker is purely a play in dynasty or keeper leagues, so stop reading now if you are in a full re-draft league. That being said, Winker is the dictionary definition of a professional hitter, and the 334 plate appearances he put down... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of leagues ANALYSIS: Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier has a .193/.256/.307 line over 277 plate appearances and just four homers with a .114 ISO and a 25.6% strikeout rate, but he has looked better of late. Over the last week, the 28-year-old has hit .333/.360/.458 with a... Read More

My birthday is September 7th, so naturally I’m excited to see the end of August. This being the last full week before the last full month of the season, the final stretch is officially here, and all I want for my birthday is a ticket to the fantasy playoffs. It’s a magical time where we... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of leagues ANALYSIS: Cleveland Indians outfielder Melky Cabrera is a rare example of the ballplayer that is better in fantasy than he is in real life. He is a terrible defensive outfielder and, despite attractive looking peripheral numbers, he has actually been a below replacement level... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of leagues ANALYSIS: San Diego Padres outfielder Travis Jankowski is one of the more explosive waiver wire pickups. He is an incredibly streaky player, which is maddening for fantasy owners. Guys like Jankowski are like deep ball receivers in fantasy football. You never know when... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of leagues ANALYSIS: Miami Marlins outfielder Rafael Ortega is a 27-year-old non-prospect who had gone through four organizations before coming to the Marlins as a minor-league free agent this past offseason. Weighing in at a slight 160 lbs., he has good-to-great speed, makes good contact,... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of leagues ANALYSIS: Toronto Blue Jays outfield Kevin Pillar returns to the waiver wire after spending some time being shuffled around the lineup. Regular readers will recall that where he slots in the batting order is of fairly significant importance when determining start/sit with Pillar.... Read More

Week 21, RotoBallers. I’ve always thought the number 21 was lucky to me, in a much as I believe in luck. I mean, it makes some measure of sense, right? Blackjack, legal drinking age, Adele’s best record, all 21. It was even the number worn by one of my favorite athletes of all time, Mike... Read More

Greetings, RotoBallers! After an unexpected two week absence, I’ve returned to the top of the waiver wire mountain to give you, my people, the names you need for fantasy glory. Like manna from heaven, I bring you cheap homers for nothing more than your undying affection. Ok, so that metaphor is a little too much.... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 20% of leagues ANALYSIS: FINALLY!!! IT HAPPENED!!! This week is just full of emotions for me. After a surprise demotion to start the season followed by a mopey initial two months, Texas’ top prospect Willie Calhoun has finally gotten back to the show. While it’s exciting that we’ll... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of leagues ANALYSIS: Hunter Renfroe, for me, has lived in the same space of the fantasy world as Mark Trumbo or Joey Gallo. Those are guys that I know I’ll almost never own because I hate guys that strikeout a ton and always swing for the fences. Sure, you... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of leagues ANALYSIS: Over the last two weeks, Cole Kalhoun Kole Calhoun has been extremely productive. The 30-year-old collected four home runs en route to a .296/.375/.778 line. During this period, Kalhoun Calhoun hit fly balls on more than half of his contact, and was rewarded with a completely unsustainable... Read More

Happy middle of July, RotoBallers! I don't know about you, but it's getting real hot. Both outside and on the MLB trade wire. Moves are being discussed as we speak, which means I need to get this up and in front of your eyes ASAP or all this great advice that will definitely help you... Read More

Welp, it happened. After months and months and months and months, Baltimore finally traded their franchise shortstop to the Dodgers for a cache of prospects. He’ll be a huge upgrade for a club that has struggled to replace Corey Seager’s production, and an already strong squad gets stronger. In a lot of ways, L.A. lucked... Read More
