2018 Breakout Infielders Due for Regression in 2019

Nothing sinks a fantasy season quite like a bust, and the last thing we want to do as fantasy owners is deal with one of those headaches all season.

ADP Cost Analysis - Kyle Freeland vs Jose Quintana

Every year there is one pitcher who, despite all underlying peripherals, puts up monster numbers and leaves fantasy owners wondering how to value them come next year. In 2018, that pitcher was Kyle Freeland, who not only put up inexplicable numbers, but did so in Colorado. Freeland's success despite a contact-heavy pitching style makes him... Read More

Classy Once Again? San Diego Padres Roster Outlook

The biggest move of the offseason (so far) came earlier this week when the Padres signed Manny Machado to a $300-million-dollar mega-deal. Yes, it was predictable, and yes, we’re all sick of the big market San Diego Padres flashing their money around while the poor Cubs scrounge for change between the couch cushions, but I... Read More

ADP Cost Analysis - Jose Abreu vs Matt Olson

The exciting young gun versus the proven veteran. A sports debate older than fantasy baseball itself, and a decision we’re faced with at every draft pick. That’s why we’re comparing the young gun (Matt Olson) to the proven veteran (Jose Abreu), two first baseman within the same sub-elite yet startable tier that owners must decide... Read More

Statcast Review - Noteworthy Hitting Leaders (xSLG)

xSLG isn’t a stat you’ll find on the back of a baseball card or one you’d find on a baseball reference page. However, as far as advanced stats go, xSLG is pretty straightforward. It is the expected slugging percentage of a hitter based on hit probability his batted balls in play, regardless of outcome. So if... Read More

Kenny Stills Disappears In Week 16 Loss

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills was hardly involved in Miami's 17-7 loss to Jacksonville in Week 16. Stills caught one pass on two targets for five yards. Stills has played in 14 games this season and caught exactly one pass in six of them. It's not all his fault; he's been victim of poor... Read More

Danny Amendola Leads Team In Receiving In Loss

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Danny Amendola led the team in receiving in Miami's 17-7 loss to Jacksonville in Week 16.

Miami has failed to sustain a reliable wide receiver all season, mainly... Read More

Kenyan Drake Totals 54 Yards In Loss Week 16

Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake was the team's most involved running back in Miami's 17-7 loss to Jacksonville in Week 16. 'Unfortunately, being the team's most involved back didn't amount to much today. Drake rushed six times for 23 yards and caught four passes for 31 yards. The Dolphins offense was downright anemic in... Read More

Kalen Ballage Disappoints In Week 16

Miami Dolphins running back Kalen Ballage had an underwhelming day in Miami's 17-7 loss to Jacksonville. Coming off a 123, one touchdown performance big things were expected of Ballage in this game. Instead he rushed just four times for 10 yards and caught two passes for 39 yards. The Dolphins offense was pitiful in this... Read More

Ryan Tannehill Has Another Poor Day Week 16

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was lackluster yet again in Miami's 17-7 loss to Jacksonville. Tannehill went 15-for-22 passing for 146 yards along with one touchdown and one interception. Tannehill's future with Miami has been in question given his poor performance all season, and games like this certainly don't help his case. He should be... Read More

Kalen Ballage Looking At Increased Role Week 16

Miami Dolphins running back Kalen Ballage should be in line for a larger role in Miami's Week 16 matchup against Jacksonville. Ballage took over for an injured Frank Gore last week and took advantage of the opportunity by rushing for 123 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries. Ballage doesn't draw the easiest matchup; the...

Danny Amendola A Low-Ceiling WR4 In Week 16

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Danny Amendola is a poor option in Week 16 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars have allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season, and Amendola has had a total of five catches for 53 yards over his last three games. He did garner eight targets last week,... Read More

Kenny Stills A Poor Option In Week 16

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills is a high-risk, low-reward option in Week 16 against Jacksonville. Stills has hauled in more than four passes just once all season, and has gained more than 40 receiving yards only once in his last nine games. Both of those occurred in Week 14 against New England. Miami takes... Read More

Kenyan Drake A Dicey Flex Play Week 16

Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake is a risky flex option in Week 16 against the Jaguars. In theory, Frank Gore's injury should create more opportunities for Drake, but Kalen Ballage's 123 yard performance last week probably gives Ballage the edge in playing time. Drake only received one carry last week against Minnesota, as the... Read More

Ryan Tannehill A Low-End Quarterback In Week 16

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is not a good fantasy option in a Week 16 matchup against the Jaguars. Tannehill is banged up with minor injuries to both his shoulder and ankle, and while he's expect to play, Tannehill faces a tough defense. Despite Jacksonville's struggles, the Jaguars pass defense has held steady this season.... Read More

Frank Gore Won't Need Surgery, Eyes 2019 Return

Miami Dolphins running back Frank Gore (foot), who was placed on injured reserve after suffering a foot sprain in Miami's 41-17 loss to Minnesota in Week 15, will not require surgery. Gore told reporters he hopes to return to Miami in 2019. Gore will be 36 by Week 1 of next season, but he's proven... Read More

Week 16 Quarterback Waiver Wire Adds and Pickups

It's Championship week in most fantasy football leagues, and a rough week to be streaming quarterbacks at that. Most of the truly terrible defenses are taking on universally owned quarterbacks, which means slim pickings on waivers. Philip Rivers against the Ravens and Jared Goff against the Cardinals are the two highly-owned quarterbacks facing tough matchups... Read More

DeVante Parker Puts Up Zeros In Week 15

Miami Dolphins Devante Parker may as well not have shown up for work on Sunday. He caught zero passes on one target in the Dolphins' 41-17 loss to Minnesota. Ryan Tannehill was sacked nine times in this game and only threw for 108 yards, so naturally Miami receivers struggled to produce. Parker hasn't been good... Read More

Kenny Stills Catches One Pass In Week 15

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills was practically invisible in the Dolphins' 41-17 loss to Minnesota. He caught one pass on three targets for 17 yards. Ryan Tannehill was under pressure all game and didn't have time to wait for things to develop downfield, which hurts Stills' specifically based on his skill set. Stills is... Read More

Danny Amendola Hauls In Three Passes Week 15

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Danny Amendola led the team in receiving in Week 15 in the Dolphins' 41-17 loss to Minnesota.

Kalen Ballage Explodes In Week 15

Kenyan Drake Has Just Four Touches In Loss

Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake took a backseat in the Dolphins' 41-17 loss to Minnesota. Drake rushed once for six yards and caught three passes for 28 yards. Frank Gore suffered a foot sprain earlier in this game, but the Dolphins elected to use Kalen Ballage as their primary ball-carrier in Gore's absence. Ballage... Read More

Ryan Tannehill Has Lackluster Day In Blowout Loss

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had a poor day in the Dolphins' 41-17 loss to Minnesota. Tannehill was 11-for-24 passing for 108 yards and with no touchdowns or interceptions. Tannehill was abused by Minnesota's pass rush; he was sacked nine times. Miami's banged up offensive line was no match for Minnesota's defense. Even at his... Read More

DeVante Parker A Desperation Play Week 15

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker is nothing more than a desperation play in a Week 15 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. Parker caught just one pass on four targets last week, and has been maddeningly inconsistent all season. The Vikings have a tough secondary, having allowed the third-fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers... Read More

Danny Amendola Should Be Avoided In Week 15

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Danny Amendola is in a rough spot in Week 15 against the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings have allowed the third-fewest points to opposing wide receivers, and Amendola has had exactly one catch on one target in each of his last two games. Amendola had a little PPR appeal earlier in the... Read More

Kenny Stills Facing Tough Defense In Week 15

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills is facing tough competition in Miami's Week 15 tilt with the Minnesota Vikings.

Stills is coming off his best game, an eight-catch, 135-yard performance in Week 14 against New... Read More

Frank Gore A Low-End Flex In Week 15

Miami Dolphins running back Frank Gore must take on a tough defense in Week 15, as the Dolphins face the Minnesota Vikings in Minnesota. The Vikings have allowed the eighth-fewest points per game to opposing running backs along with the seventh-fewest yards per carry. Gore has done well with his carries this year; his 4.7...

Kenyan Drake A Boom-Or-Bust Flex Week 15

Miami Dolphins running back will look to build off his heroics from last week in a Week 15 tilt with the Minnesota Vikings. Drake made his day last week on a 55-yard walk-off double-lateral. Obviously, that isn't something that can be relied on from week to week, which makes a Drake a high-risk flex against... Read More

Ryan Tannehill A Poor Option In Week 15

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is not a great option at quarterback in Week 15 against Minnesota. Tannehill has been dealing with an ankle injury all week, and while he's expected to play, he's facing a Minnesota defense that has allowed the fourth-fewest points per game to opposing quarterbacks. Tannehill is already a low-end QB2... Read More
