BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Seattle Seahawks wide receiver David Moore has gone without a catch in back-to-back games, but is still a good play for Week 15.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 25% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Miami Dolphins running back Frank Gore has 131 carries for 595 yards this season, but could see a boost in his value this week.

The first major move of the 2018 MLB offseason was made on Monday night, as the Seattle Mariners sent James Paxton to the New York Yankees for Justus Sheffield, Erik Swanson, and Dom Thompson-Williams.

Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Tommy Pham was a hot name in fantasy circles coming into the 2018 season. A late bloomer, Pham had an .824 OPS in his first stretch of playing time in 2015 (173 plate appearances) before taking a bit of a step back in 2016 and breaking out in 2017. Pham slashed... Read More

Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Chris Archer came into the 2018 season with the Tampa Bay Rays as a known commodity of a strikeout pitcher.

Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Dylan Bundy was the fourth pick of the 2011 Draft, making the big leagues the very next season.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 13% of Leagues ANALYSIS: New York Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa managed an ankle injury in Week 10 and led the team in targets.
