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.

Hey RotoBallers and Ottoneu fans. I'm back after a bit of a break, and I'm ready to grade a few more trades for you all. I didn't receive much Twitter feedback, so I'll be throwing in a few deals that I found among the Ottoneu Fantasy Baseball Official Trade Thread. Let's see what kind of... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers! As we enter Week 8, we're getting closer and closer to panic time. If you've been ravaged by injuries like me, waiver wire pickups might not cut it anymore. Don't wait too long to go out on the trade market and fill some holes on your team. Remember, it's a long season,... Read More

Hey RotoBallers and Ottoneu fans. I've decided to help grow the presence of Ottoneu content on RotoBaller by dissecting some trades at least once a month. I'll look to you, the people, on Twitter for some real-life examples of trades from FanGraphs' Ottoneu format, and I'll let you know what I think of them. On... Read More

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of leagues ANALYSIS: Everyone is about ready to write off Atlanta Braves outfielder Jose Bautista from ever being fantasy relevant again. Yes, that is the most likely outcome, but there are a few factors that could give him one last chance in 2018. For one,... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of leagues ANALYSIS: Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Carlos Rodon is finally on the brink of returning from his long injury absence, as he is targeting a return to the White Sox rotation in late May. It might be silly to think Rodon will reclaim... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of leagues ANALYSIS: Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Chad Kuhl is stuck in the rut of his talent not matching his results, keeping him off everyone's radar. After spinning seven scoreless, one-hit innings on his way to eight more strikeouts in Milwaukee on Sunday, it might... Read More

Welcome to Week 6! By now, you have a pretty good idea of the type of team that you are working with. Is your squad full of over-performing draft picks and waiver adds that are carrying you to the top of the standings? Are you hanging tight despite waiting for a few key players to... Read More

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

Hey there RotoBallers. Apologies for the lack of article last week, but we're back in full force for Week 4. Hopefully your first month of fantasy baseball is going well, because I know I'm still waiting for my players' bats to wake up. Whether you're mulling over replacements or trying to improve an already successful... Read More

Hey there RotoBallers. Apologies for the delay. Between The Masters this weekend and adjusting to my new MLB schedule, this article slipped my mind. Like last season, Max and I will be splitting the AL/NL Digging Deeper series every other week, so you can expect one of us to give this article a whirl every... Read More

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

Our series of conference tournament previews continues with a look inside the Big East Conference Tournament. The once-powerhouse conference known for its crazy games in Madison Square Garden has begun to resurrect itself after a down period, producing some of the best teams in the country this season, which should lead to a very entertaining... Read More

We have less than a week before Selection Sunday, so that means that all of the major conference tournaments will be distracting us from our jobs and our families before the real March Madness begins. The Atlantic 10 tournament is no different, as play will open up Wednesday evening at Capital One Arena in the... Read More

It's almost here. No, I'm not talking about the Summer Olympics. I'm talking March Madness! Here at RotoBaller we're going to have you covered with insight and analysis from the huge conference tournaments happening in the next two weeks, all the way through to the Final Four in Phoenix. Make sure to follow along with... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers! It's been too long, but we finally get to talk NBA DFS again. College basketball is heating up, Spring Training is starting, PGA Majors are on the way, and the NBA season is entering the final stretch. It's a beautiful time to be a sports fan, and it's an even better time... Read More

Today is the last official day of NBA games before the All-Star Break. With only two games scheduled, I won't be playing. I recommend you don't play as well. However, if you're really jones-ing for some NBA action before the break, and you want to play this tiny slate, I'll provide a few thoughts on... Read More

We're just two more reasonable slates away from the NBA All-Star Break, so get your NBA DFS in while you can. We get another six games on this Tuesday, and the Spurs on a back-to-back happen to be the last game of the night... oh joy. In this article, I will be providing you with my daily... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers! We were rudely reminded what it's like to play MLB DFS last night thanks to the strange postponement of the Pacers and Pelicans game. I'll echo what all of Twitter was saying, which was that if you faded the postponed game, you are bad at NBA DFS. It was one of, if... Read More

Happy Tuesday, RotoBallers. We get another great Tuesday slate with eight games including some awesome, fast-paced matchups. We don't have all of the totals as of writing this early Tuesday morning, but we have enough to know that there should be plenty to target. As always, expect some injury news to change things up throughout... Read More

Happy Blake Griffin day! I'm assuming Griffin will make his debut Thursday night, and while it's tough to know how his new role will affect his DFS production, it will be fun to watch regardless. We have five games total tonight, and although injuries and trades have Vegas hesitant on most of the lines, we... Read More

Well, this should be interesting. We received news on Monday evening that Blake Griffin will be traded to the Pistons in exchange for Tobias Harrisa and Avery Bradley. There are other pieces involved too, but those are the most DFS relevant pieces. For the sake of this article, I'm going to assume that none of... Read More

Good morning RotoBallers! It's only a four-game slate on this Thursday, and while I tried to wait it out overnight, we still don't have word on a few key injury situations that will really shape tonight's slate. Jimmy Butler, Kristaps Porzingis, and Gary Harris are all questionable (although I've seen Porzingis listed probable in a... Read More

What a crazy night that was last night. My top tournament lineup scored 398 DraftKings points, which would be more than enough to take the top spot on most nights. Unfortunately, I was still 162 spots away from that big win. Regardless, it was a good night overall for me, so let's get on a... Read More

Another small four-game slate awaits us on Thursday night, but do we have some fun games to analyze. Not only are there some injuries in high-total games to exploit, but we have Rockets suspensions to consider too. In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 1/18/18.... Read More

That was a crazy weekend of football followed by a massive day of basketball which ended in one team trying to break into the locker room of another. This smaller four-game slate should alllow you time to catch your breath. There are some high totals to work with, however, so you may want to have... Read More

While we do have four games on Thursday, one of them is being played in London and will happen in the early afternoon. Therefore, we get three injury-riddled games to analyze. Oh joy. Oh yeah, and none of these games have totals or spreads as of 10:00 pm EST on Wednesday night. In this article,... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers. Hopefully you enjoyed your last bit of college football last night, and maybe you won some money in NBA DFS too. If not, let's get you back on the right track. We're a little shorthanded with just four games this Tuesday, but there should be some interesting plays regardless. Below you will find... Read More

It's officially 2018, and I wish I could say that Tuesday's NBA DFS slate will be a little more full than Monday's, but we only have five games. Even still, five is better than three or two (which we have coming up on Thursday... ugh), so we can't complain. Let's help you build that bankroll up... Read More

Welcome back, folks! I hope everyone had a great holiday break, and I wish the best for you all as you ring in the new year. We have some great slates coming up as we close out 2017, and this one is no exception. Thursday brings us five games, and while we're missing a couple... Read More
