NBA DFS Prop Picks for 12/17/19 - Monkey Knife Fight

Happy Tuesday, RotoBallers. We had a great 4-for-5 night last night if you tailed my Monkey Knife Fight picks. Only Tim Hardaway Jr and his 0-for-5 night from three point land let us down. Let's do it again! We have an almost as enticing slate tonight with six games, so let's find four or five... Read More

NBA DFS Prop Picks for 12/10/19 - Monkey Knife Fight

Well, we had a 1-for-5 night last night. Woof. Blake Griffin disappeared, and Derrick Rose had a vintage D Rose game in his absence (of course). Devin Booker was a free throw away from hitting the over, but landed half a point short. D'Angelo Russell went 6-for-22 and still almost hit his over. At least... Read More

NBA DFS Prop Picks for 12/3/19 - Monkey Knife Fight

Last night was, well, interesting. For starters, Aron Baynes sat with his injury after playing 25 minutes the game prior, so he must have re-aggravated something. On the positive side, Ricky Rubio crushed his assist line and Donovan Mitchell came no where close to 25 points. Solid! Unfortunately Buddy Hield couldn't hit that fourth three... Read More

Well, we went three for five last night, and we were one McCollum three pointer away from going four for five.

The Orlando and Detroit blowout crushed our chances at the... Read More

Andrew Triggs (SP, OAK) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

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

2020 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers - Jose Urquidy

It's been a tumultuous winter for the Houston Astros.

Plenty of virtual ink has been... Read More

But, as we... Read More


How to Attack RP in SV+HLD Leagues

Many fantasy... Read More
