About Tom Bellucco - RotoBaller

Co-Leader of Ops team, editor, and analyst of fantasy baseball, football, and basketball. I take pride in missing FanDuel championship qualifiers by fractions of points and spending my FAAB like it's nothing. Someday I'll be too old for fantasy sports, and that will be the worst day of my life.

Tom Bellucco - RotoBaller has written 226 articles so far, you can find them below.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 8% of leagues ANALYSIS: If we take away two horrendous starts from Oakland Athletics starting pitcher Andrew Triggs this season, we would have a pitcher with 28 2/3 innings pitched, 32 strikeouts, three wins, and a sub-3.00 ERA. Of course, it is really easy to see... Read More

Is Jameson Taillon an Ace in Fantasy Leagues?

I'll begin this article with a bit of a precursor: I'm a huge Pirates fan. However, I do like to think that I'm a realistic Pirates fan. One who just dropped Ivan Nova in the RotoBaller Expert League despite two good outings in a row. Point being, I don't typically hold on to or vouch... Read More

Could Your Pitching Staff Use a Jakob Junis?

Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Jakob Junis raised some eyebrows at the end of the 2017 season, boasting an increased strikeout rate and a 3.61 ERA in the final two months. It wasn't enough to put him on many draft boards in shallow fantasy baseball leagues this past March, but his first start in 2018... Read More
