Welcome back, RotoBallers! As a reminder, in this piece we're looking for weekly streamers in head-to-head leagues, which means players who are 50% owned or less in Yahoo! leagues and who have seven or more games in the week. These players could provide great value off the waiver wire, particularly in head-to-head leagues, for week... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers! As a reminder, in this piece we're looking for weekly streamers, which means players who are 50% owned or less in Yahoo! leagues and who have seven games in the week. This week the options are aplenty. These players could be hitters worth starting and streaming in Week 9 of the fantasy... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers! As a reminder, in this piece we're looking for the top hitters to add and stream in Week 8 of the fantasy baseball season. We will simply evaluate weekly streamers, which means players who are 50% owned or less in Yahoo! leagues and who have seven games in the week. With that... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers! As a reminder, in this piece we're looking for weekly streamers, which means players who are 50% owned or less in Yahoo! leagues and who have seven games in the week. To catch my streamers column each week, add me on Twitter @rotonails. With that said, let’s dive into the stream(ers).  ... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 38% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Toronto’s offense was nothing short of terrible to start the year. However, they have picked it up as of late and are averaging 4.7 runs per game in their last seven. In a suddenly good offense, Pillar is a real asset.... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers! As a reminder, in this piece we're looking for weekly streamers, which means players who are less than 50% owned in Yahoo! leagues and who have a good chance to play a full complement of games in the week. There are a lot of teams with seven games this week, so I... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 43% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Cozart hit .252/16/67/50/4 in only 121 games last year. He has started this year with a line of .379/1/9/11/1. His .462 BABIP is unsustainable, so his average will drop. Nevertheless, he should continue to produce at a high level, just as he did... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers! As a reminder, in this piece we're looking for weekly streamers, which means players who are less than 50% owned in Yahoo! leagues and who have a good chance to play a full complement of games in the week. I usually stick to players who have seven games, but because I do... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers! The streamers are off to a good start thus far, and the week three options are looking even better. As a reminder, in this piece we're looking for weekly streamers, which means players who are less than 50% owned in Yahoo! leagues and who have a good chance to play a full... Read More

Welcome back to my hitting streamers column for Week 2, taking a look at hitters to add or stream off the waiver wire for this week's scheduled games. To keep things simple, I pick from players who are less than 50% owned and who play at least seven games in the week.  If someone jumps... Read More

In my starting pitchers’ piece, I noted how I wanted top starting pitchers, but very few had an ADP at or lower than my rankings. Thus, in order to fill my goal of acquiring top starting pitchers, I had to search for relative value; those who had ADPs close to my rankings became relative values.... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~243 CURRENT ADP: ~315 ANALYSIS: Say what you want about the importance of pitch-framing and catcher ERA, but make no mistake that Liriano has done well pitching to Russell Martin. In 248 career innings pitching to Martin, he has a 2.94 ERA, 9.2k/9 and an OPS against of .621. Last year, he... Read More

Just when you thought it was over... this will officially conclude our Bold Predictions series for the fantasy baseball season. Last year was the debut of my 10 bold predictions, and I think I did pretty well. But you should be the judge for yourself and review how I did before deciding how much stock... Read More

Just like second base, shortstop is a deep position this year. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the tiers. As before, this round of rankings features picks from Kyle Bishop, Nick Mariano, Bill Dubiel, Brad Johnson, Harris Yudin and myself. Check out all of our updated rankings. Adjust your league size, and export your rankings. Tiers,... Read More

For standard, one catcher leagues, I either want one of the top four catchers (where Schwarber qualifies at catcher), or I want one of the last catchers. The top four catchers seem to be valued properly, but if one slips, go for it. While any individual taken fifth through eleventh in the catcher world could... Read More

The positions that are usually thought of as thin are unusually deep this year, with second base being no exception. Unlike years past, you won’t be forced to have a poor first base option if you don’t take one early. Nonetheless, we need to examine each tier to see where the best values lie. Here,... Read More

Yesterday, I covered the AL’s overvalued and undervalued pitchers according to ADP. Today it's time to tackle the National League starters - players that I think can be SP draft values or busts based on their current draft day prices. To switch things up, in this piece we will start with the overvalued pitchers. This isn't... Read More

In my pitching strategy article, I laid out my case for drafting three high-floor, high-ceiling starters and then waiting until late for lottery ticket pitchers. I also advised against paying for the pitchers in between, who either lack the ceiling or the floor to justify the price. In this piece, I'll lay out some top end... Read More

For many, a draft is all about finding sleepers, predicting who the busts and breakouts are, and deciding who to pick with the first pick or who to allocate the most money to in an auction draft. While finding the right players is certainly a necessary element of a successful fantasy draft, it is not... Read More

When many think of sleepers, they think of young players who may break out, players who switched to a more favorable team, or players who underperformed according to sabermetric indicators (e.g. BABIP, Statcast data, HR/FB%, etc). They may even look for anecdotal evidence of a breakout, such as someone who changed his swing. But those... Read More

Kendrys Morales signed a three year, $33 million pact with the Blue Jays early this offseason. Many criticized the signing then, and have criticized it even further after Encarnacion’s and the rest of the 1B/DH market did not develop as anticipated. Nonetheless, Morales is leaving for a better fantasy situation. Could he break out in... Read More

It's the fantasy baseball draft season. To us baseball nerds, few things are more exciting than arguing about player rankings. Today, we'll discuss and compare Kenta Maeda's RotoBaller staff rankings. He was ranked No. 183 overall by Jeff Kahntroff, and No. 96 by Kyle Bishop. Throughout this series, we'll be using our February Staff Rankings to debate... Read More

Last year we heard rumblings of players and fans alike thinking the ball was juiced, as homers skyrocketed. We have also begun to hear teams mention over the years that outs on the basepaths might not be worth the risk of a stolen base. Then again, maybe it’s just my bias as an Orioles’ fan... Read More

Yesterday, my colleague Kyle Bishop reviewed the meat of the outfield market. Today, we sort through the mid-tier guys and the scraps (tier six and below) with a keen eye for hidden treasures that could win you your league. Editor's note: Be sure to also check out our 2017 fantasy baseball rankings dashboard. It's already loaded up... Read More

Welcome to our 2017 fantasy baseball first base rankings for February. Even though first basemen and designated hitter types have faced a tough free agent market this offseason, don’t let that fool you into thinking they’re not valuable fantasy baseball commodities. This round of rankings features picks from Kyle Bishop, Nick Mariano, Bill Dubiel, Brad Johnson,... Read More
