Dustin Pedroia Continues to Rake, Maintains Must-Start Status

After being limited to only 93 games last season due to injury, Dustin Pedroia is showing the MLB that he is still one of the top second basemen in the league. In his last seven games, he has 10 hits in 29 at bats which is good for a .345 batting average. All but one at... Read More

Joc Pederson Off to Hot Start, Remains an Everyday Fantasy Option

Joc Pederson is off to a hot start in this young season. We saw the All Star rise in the beginning of the 2015 season, only to see a dramatic drop-off in the second half of the season. His 27 homers showed that he has the power but his .210 average along with only 59 RBI... Read More

Curtis Granderson Finally Gets a Hit, But Should be Benched Until He Heats Up

Curtis Granderson finally got a hit last night to raise his average to an unsightly .097 on this young season. Granderson also got off to a slow start last season--the difference? In the month of April last year, he walked 19 times to have a high on-base percentage despite his lack of hits. So far... Read More

Logan Verrett Pitches Gem; Hold Onto Him

Logan Verrett filled in for Jacob deGrom today as deGrom prepared to start a new chapter in life: being a dad. The sophomore pitched an absolutely stellar game, allowing just three hits and no runs through six full innings. Verrett became only the third player in Mets history to allow five hits or less in his... Read More

Yoenis Cespedes Continues to be Mediocre, No Need For Concern Yet

After signing a massive three-year deal worth $25 million in each season with the Mets, Yoenis Cespedes is starting to aggravate fans. He has just six hits in 24 at-bats with the Amazins (including a home run) yet he is still arguably their best contributor thus far. Cespedes' does have a tendency to swing and miss... Read More

Alex Rodriguez Struggling; Questionable to Start

Alex Rodriguez surprised the entire baseball world last season by slugging 33 homers after everybody had his retirement note ready before the man himself. Now, he has huge expectations entering the 2016 season. So far, Alex is off to a slow start but it is not a reason to worry. Keep in mind, it is... Read More

Steven Matz Rocked For Seven Runs In Just 1.2 Innings, Not Time To Panic Yet

After 10 days of rest, New York Mets Steven Matz was rocked for seven runs before taken out after only 1.2 innings pitched. Last year, he allowed only six runs in the entire season. It was the shortest outing by a Mets pitcher since Jon Niese on July 4th, 2014 against Texas. All seven runs against Matz were... Read More

Kimbrel Blows Game Against Orioles, Shouldn't Be Cause For Concern

Newly acquired All-Star Craig Kimbrel earned his first loss in a Red Sox uniform on Monday. Entering the 9th inning in a 6-6 ball game, Kimbrel fired a 97-mph fastball to Orioles slugger Chris Davis that he wished he had back, as Davis demolished it for a three-run, game-winning home run. The Orioles entered the game...

We Must Overreact Immediately! Week 6 Outliers

In Week 6, several players exploded in fantasy lineups. There were a few receivers that were above the rest of the pack in Week 6, such as Stefon Diggs, Terry McLaurin, Chris Godwin and Tyreek Hill, but there shouldn't be any surprises there as those guys should have been in fantasy lineups. At the quarterback... Read More

Deeper League Free Agent Pickups for Week 7

The bye week difficulties continue this week with Carolina, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Tampa Bay all getting their rest in Week 7.

All of a sudden, the Chargers look like one of the worst teams in football and the Jets look like a playoff contender. Maybe things won't shake out that way in the end but it goes to show how quickly things change in the "Not For Long" NFL. For that reason, we advise looking at... Read More

This is your weekly list of players to drop. I will do my best to limit this list to injured players and players you might consider holding.

Running Back Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 7

Some of you have been rewarded for your meticulous roster planning by receiving excellent production from your running backs. Unfortunately, many of you have been equally prepared when making roster decisions, but have been undermined by injuries, inconsistent usage, or underwhelming performances. If that applies to you, then those unwanted outcomes have forced you to... Read More

Wide Receiver Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 7

We weren't really surprised by the top-scoring fantasy wide receivers from Week 6. Out of the top-20 receivers, only Jamison Crowder, Auden Tate and Jaron Brown were less than 50% owned. Jaron Brown (0% owned) was only targeted five times but he scored two touchdowns off of those five targets. Auden Tate (23% owned) hauled... Read More
