Deeper League Waiver Wire: NL Edition (Ottavino, DeSclafani, Haren)

In last week's Deeper League NL Waiver Wire, I talked about a few batters that should see pretty consistent at-bats in the coming months. This week, I'm flipping gears to help you find a few "quality" pitchers that should amass a good number of starts, or, at the very least, be called upon from the... Read More

FanDuel DFS – MLB Lineup Picks, Sleepers & Advice for 4/13/15

There are fourteen games on the slate today, which is pretty remarkable for a Monday. (Next Monday has just nine scheduled.) Games are pretty evenly divided, with six of the games during the day and eight at night. Expect to see a lot of 'Early Only' contest options. With that in mind, I'll offer up... Read More

Odubel Herrera (2B/SS/OF, PHI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Herrera has a chance to score some runs and steal a few bags, especially when manager Ryne Sandberg slots him at the top of the order. Just 23 years old, Herrera was only the second Phillies player in the last 45 years to make... Read More

Jace Peterson (2B, ATL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Jace Peterson, who was acquired by the Braves in the Justin Upton deal, was probably a lock to be the starting second baseman since day one of Spring Training. Not one to leave things to chance, he made sure his performance in the Grapefruit League erased any doubt Fredi Gonzalez may have had by hitting .321 over 68... Read More

Deeper League Waiver Wire: NL Edition (Herrera, Peterson, Lamb)

Here we are, just a few short days into the season. The injury bug has already bitten and the hot stove has decided to burn past winter's end (see: Kimbrel, Craig). It's exciting stuff, so long as none of it has decimated your roster. You may have a few slots to fill already. That's okay.... Read More

FanDuel DFS - MLB Lineup Picks, Sleepers & Advice for 4/7/15

There is a somewhat healthy slate of baseball on day two of the 2015 regular season with 8 games scheduled for Tuesday April 7th, 2015. Unfortunately there aren't any daytime games slotted, but that gives DFS participants more time to analyze and select a team, especially if you always like being able to pick players... Read More

Jake Odorizzi (SP, TB) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft in Middle Rounds of All Leagues ANALYSIS: Tampa Bay Rays middle-of-the-rotation starter Jake Odorizzi had a pretty solid season in 2014, compiling an 11-13 record, a 4.13 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP and 174 strikeouts in 168 innings of work. The former first round draft pick has never dazzled at the minor league level, but... Read More

Three Shortstops Who Will Outperform Their 2015 ADP: Rankings Analysis

After the tier of elite shortstops, which, as I see it, is essentially just Troy Tulowitzki and Ian Desmond (though I am hesitant to crown Desmond as "elite" just yet), there is quite a bit of parity throughout the league. Of the consensus top five or six shortstops ranked for fantasy purposes, ZiPS projects only... Read More

Jacob Lamb (3B, ARI) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target as MI in late rounds ANALYSIS: Let me preface the points of my article with this - make no mistake, Jacob Lamb is a DEEP sleeper. So deep that at this point, he may only be worth a look in National League only formats, and even in those, he may not have any... Read More

Marcus Semien (2B/3B, OAK) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target as MI in late rounds ANALYSIS: Marcus Semien should see consistent playing time in Oakland (unlike during his tenure with the White Sox), not only due to his position versatility, but also because of Oakland’s glaring need for middle infield help. Semien’s major league stolen base numbers don’t jump off the page, but in 2013... Read More

Marcus Semien: 2015 Fantasy Baseball Middle Infield Sleeper

With 85 games under his MLB belt and still just 24 years old, newly acquired right-handed-hitting Marcus Semien could provide a lot of value to the Oakland Athletics and fantasy owners alike this season. The former White Sox second baseman should see an ample amount of playing time in Oakland, while possibly maintaining eligibility at... Read More

Tight End VOS (Values Over Starter): 2019 Season In Context

The 2019 fantasy football season is over. That is not something we like to say considering the empty path we have ahead of us until we reach draft season again in eight months. The good thing about it, though, is that we have plenty of time to analyze what happened during the past few weeks... Read More


Biggest Surprises of 2019: Running Back

The 2019 NFL season was an interesting year for the running back position. Christian McCaffrey was the overall RB1, but some of the other top players fell below expectations. That led to some interesting final results when the final season standings came around. And while some of those -- Dalvin Cook as the RB3, Leonard... Read More

What a season, RotoBallers. Fantasy football is always a fun, interesting, and long season - filled with injuries, breakout players, and different strategies.

Introducing the 2020 Rookie Tight End Class

Out of all the skill positions, tight end is the one where rookies have the most issue making an immediate impact. But there's still always some value at every position in every NFL Draft, and the 2020 one is no exception, even if people are very down on this year's crop of tight ends. Let's... Read More


Can a New Coach Fix Baker Mayfield in 2020?

Another season has passed and another disappointment by Browns fans has been realized. Baker Mayfield got the head coach he wanted in Freddie Kitchens in 2019. In 2020, hopefully he's got the one he needs in Kevin Stefanski. Last season, under Kitchens, Mayfield had a coach he could control and manipulate. He did just that... Read More


Wide Receiver VOS (Values Over Starter): 2019 Season In Context

The one (and only) good thing about fantasy football season ending is that we have plenty of time to analyze what happened during the past few months and put performances into context to prepare for next season.

The King's Keeper Corner: NFL Postseason Impacts on Player Outlooks

With a break in the postseason NFL action, it is time to reflect on what we have seen in the playoffs so far and how certain performances will affect fantasy football outlooks in keeper and dynasty formats. How players respond and what they deliver at the most intense and critical times of the season can... Read More


Introducing Value Over Starter Football Metrics

When it comes to fantasy sports, we're always looking for the highest possible Return On Investment or ROI. This concept is easy to understand: in both Daily Fantasy and re-draft/fantasy leagues, ROI would come down to how many points a player returns relative to his salary, or the price you paid (given his ADP on...

Biggest Breakouts of 2019: Quarterback

2019 was a very interesting season of fantasy football, to say the least. It's safe to say no one was banking on the season that we saw from Lamar Jackson but he wasn't the only one to stand out. At the quarterback position, we saw some really exciting players start to shine and some older... Read More


Goodbye Runners, Hello Pass-Catching RBs: 2019 Season Trends

As the 2019 summer kept going we all had two things in our minds with regard to September's fantasy drafts and both of them were related to running backs: Where in the world are Ezekiel Elliott and Melvin Gordon and when will they be back? It made sense back then (and it still does now,... Read More


Where Does 2019 Rank Historically Among ADP Movers?

I have worked on a season-review series of articles in which I have analyzed the biggest winners and losers in terms of ADP entering draft season compared to the end of the year final results. It was plenty of fun looking back at the gambles most of us took which ultimately paid off, but also... Read More


Biggest Busts of 2019: Tight End

2019 was not the record-breaking season for tight ends 2018 was. San Francisco’s George Kittle (most receiving yards for a TE in a season) and Philadelphia’s Zach Ertz (most receptions for a TE in a season) did not break the records they set last season, although both were fine for fantasy players. Kansas City’s Travis... Read More

The 2019 fantasy season is over. We are all thinking about what to do come 2020 draft day. So let me ask you something. What if I offer you the chance of drafting a quarterback who is a lock to finish the season with 270 fantasy points? Would you take him and make him your... Read More
