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
