Lamar Miller's Injury: What It Means for Duke Johnson And The Texans Other RBs

In one of the wildest days in NFL preseason history, one story completely overshadowed the rest of the news around the league and it wasn't even related to anything happening on a football field. Andrew Luck retired from football at 29 years of age, just on the verge of starting his seventh (he missed all... Read More

2019 Yardage Regression Candidates - Wide Receivers

While touchdowns are the most coveted play outcome for wide receivers in fantasy football (they award six points to the scorer), total receiving yards must be taken into serious consideration when deciding who to draft for the position. It is true that receivers have to work harder to rack up yards, and that they don't... Read More

Greg Olsen (TE, CAR) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~130 Overall Current ADP: ~140 Olsen is an NFL veteran, and lately he's been a fragile one. In both 2017 and 2018, he only played in seven and nine games respectively. I have always valued him quite high (injuries or not), and he ranked 9th in DVOA when on the field... Read More

Mark Andrews (TE, BAL) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~140 Overall Current ADP: ~155 Not only is Andrews a tight end from a team that will feature a scrambling demon at the quarterback position,  a nice new running back in Mark Ingram, and that as a unit was the most run-heavy team during the second half of the last season. He's... Read More

T.J. Hockenson (TE, DET) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~145 Overall Current ADP: ~160 There is a chance you find Hockenson available for free at the end of your league's draft. He's currently at the verge of dropping to a consensus Round-15 ADP spot. The risk is obvious, and the ADP shows. Even as a rookie tight end, and if... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: After not finding a trade partner for Asdrubal Cabrera at the end of July, Texas moved on from the soon-to-be free agent. Just three days after being released by the Rangers, the Nationals pounced and added him to their roster. This is... Read More

Austin Nola (1B/2B, SEA) - Week 22 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: A latecomer to the majors, 29-year-old Austin Nola was finally called up by the Mariners after spending seven years in the Marlins' minor league system.

Hanser Alberto (2B/3B, BAL) - Week 22 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of leagues ANALYSIS: Under-the-radar players often make it to the waiver wire. Looking at his first three seasons as an MLB player, all three with negative WAR production, it was normal that Hanser Alberto was left off of most fantasy rosters. This year, in his first season in... Read More

Mark Canha (1B/OF, OAK) - Week 22 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of leagues ANALYSIS: At this point in time it feels wrong that someone like Mark Canha keeps being overlooked. In 2019, his fifth MLB season, he's slashing .269/.385/.517, with a .902 OPS, all of those numbers being career-best marks. Adding wood to the fire, he just hit... Read More

Evan Longoria (3B, SF) - Week 22 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of Leagues ANALYSIS: After building his Hall of Fame case for 10 years in Tampa Bay, Evan Longoria moved to the west coast to play for San Francisco in 2018. His production last year was awful considering what he had done not long ago. Flip the calendar... Read More

Starlin Castro (2B/3B, MIA) - Week 22 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 21% of Leagues ANALYSIS: I wrote a piece about Starlin Castro for our waiver wire stream last weekend. Seven days ago, I considered him a good guy to pick up in 14+ team leagues. Turns out he can't stop getting better and he's now someone to consider in... Read More

Ryan Fitzpatrick (QB, MIA) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

What we enjoyed in Tampa Bay just last year with the Winston-Fitz pair we will enjoy in Miami with Fitzpatrick joining Josh Rosen. Prepare for some fireworks, because they are coming. To call Ryan Fitzpatrick a sleeper is falling short. Fitzpatrick is more akin to your sleeper's favorite sleeper if anything at all. Let me... Read More

Fool Me Once... Sophomore Tight Ends Set to Bust Again

If there is something volatile in fantasy football, that is the tight end position. But here I am, trying to identify busts on their rookie season that are expected not to do much better this year. I have limited myself to rookies that were drafted in real-life. Those were mostly the ones to hold somehow... Read More

Nick Ahmed (SS, ARI) - Week 21 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 24% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: While Diamondbacks second baseman Ketel Marte has suddenly become a household name in Arizona, shortstop Nick Ahmed is flying almost completely under the radar. Despite that, Ahmed is having a career year. He is slashing .274/.333/.460 (all career-best marks), has hit 15 home... Read More

Luis Arraez (2B/3B/OF, MIN) - Week 21 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of leagues ANALYSIS: Many words have already been written about the young offensive explosion that is taking place this season. Rookie hitters are mashing, and perhaps one of the most overlooked is Twins infielder Luis Arraez. Minnesota called him up back in May and he has been a... Read More

Late-Round Tight Ends Who Will Outperform Their ADP

Show me a tight end, and I'll show you a dice. And most probably, one with way more than six faces. Fantasy football is not new. We are not new to fantasy football neither. Everybody goes by the strategy of drafting RB/WR, RB/WR, RB/WR (ad infinitum), QB, TE, rest of the bunch. There are owners... Read More

Anthony Santander (OF, BAL) - Week 21 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 29% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Young Baltimore outfielder Anthony Santander keeps progressing as a Major League player. In his rookie season of 2017, he saw only 31 plate appearances. In 2018, he logged 108 PA in 33 games. This season, he has already played 60 games and gone... Read More

Starlin Castro (2B/3B, MIA) - Week 21 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 22% of Leagues ANALYSIS: As much as I'm a believer in Starlin Castro's abilities, I must acknowledge his stay in Miami hasn't been glorious. Although he finished 2018 with a 2.3 WAR (his best since 2014) and a wRC+ of 101, those numbers were nothing otherworldly. In 2019,... Read More

Freddy Galvis (2B/SS, CIN) - Week 21 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 32% of Leagues ANALYSIS: In a little bit of a puzzling move, the Toronto Blue Jays moved on from infielder Freddy Galvis and put him on waivers after finding no market for him at the trade deadline. The Reds pounced since Galvis was having a good season in Toronto.... Read More

Brett Gardner (OF, NYY) - Week 21 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 29% of leagues ANALYSIS: Brett Gardner came back from the injury list on August 2. Since then, he has patrolled New York's center field each and every day while hitting mostly down in the second half of the order (around the fifth or sixth spots). His numbers in August...

Preparing for the Worst: Melvin Gordon/Ezekiel Elliott Holdouts

Holdouts are not new to the NFL. We're fresh off one of the most talked-about ones in last season's Le'Veon Bell skipping the year while with the Steelers. Everybody hoped Bell would eventually make it back to the field. Preseason went by. First week. Second, third, etc. Until there was a point of no return,... Read More

Kevin Kiermaier (OF, TB) - Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: It's a shame Kevin Kiermaier has lost time to injuries. Just this season he has been injury-listed three times, the last one in late July. It kept him out for the last 10 days of the month. Fortunately for him and Tampa,... Read More

Corey Dickerson (OF, PHI) - Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 26% of Yahoo leagues ANALYSIS: In Corey Dickerson we have one of the few players that moved places this past July before the new "hard" trade deadline. Dickerson made the All-Star in 2017. He won a Gold Glove award last year playing for Pittsburgh. His fWAR has never been... Read More

Jason Kipnis (2B, CLE) - Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 35% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Jason Kipnis has gone from a deep-league useful player to a staple in standard-sized and 12+ teams leagues. He's still being overlooked for someone with the production he's showing, so you may very well consider adding him to your lineup if you... Read More

C.J. Cron (1B, MIN) - Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 35% of leagues ANALYSIS: After injuring his thumb in late July and returning a few days ago to the lineup, C.J. Cron keeps putting on one of his best seasons. To be fair, he has steadily been on the rise since he entered the league. He has amassed... Read More

Cavan Biggio (2B/OF, TOR) - Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 29% of leagues ANALYSIS: Cavan Biggio is becoming a household name in our waiver wire. People never learn. I'm not going to blame them, though, as Biggio is the less hyped of Toronto's Baby Boom Trio (along with Bo Bichette and Vladimir Guerrero Jr.). But it is about... Read More

Kolten Wong (2B, STL) - Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues OWNED IN: 31% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Wong's ownership is extremely low for such a complete player. This season, Wong is on pace for his most plate appearances since 2015. He's already matched last season's PA numbers and is improving each and every one of his stats. He's walking more (from 7.6...

Stop that Hype Train! Jared Cook

Considering how the NFL (like every other sport nowadays) is skewing younger, it must be acknowledged that Jared Cook poses a great case for veterans to fight for consideration as valuable pieces. Not only is Cook entering his age-32 season, but he's also only missed 11 games in his 10-year career, and played the full... Read More

Kevin Pillar (OF, SF) - Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 28% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Blue Jays got rid of Kevin Pillar earlier this season. Most fantasy owners don't consider him rosterable either. Shame on all of them. Yes, Pillar may not be your All-Star center fielder. Yes, Pillar is 30 and far from his peak. But how... Read More

Duke Johnson (RB, HOU) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~140 Overall CURRENT ADP: ~180 ANALYSIS: The case of Duke Johnson is one of the most interesting ones as we approach the start of the season.
