In this article I will give you some of my favorite fantasy baseball waiver wire pickups for Week 3 of the MLB season.

  Five 1B Deep Sleepers for 2014 Analyzing first base is one fantasy proposition, but predicting the 2014 season’s breakouts is an entirely different ball game (pun intended).  Generally, when we think of the position’s elite options, we think of the slow contributor with no SB who provides a hefty percentage of your team’s HR...

The Biggest Risers and Fallers of the NBA Trade Deadline The NBA trade deadline is over, but owners must study the effects of its aftermath.  There are no extreme overhauls in sight—Pau Gasol is still a Laker, Jeff Teague is still a Hawk, and Kevin Love is still the face of the T-Wolves (for now)....

Power-Patch Kidz’: It’s time to patch-up those weaknesses Heading towards the end of fantasy’s Week 17, owners need not simply rely on their best waiver-wire options.  Not making sense right?  Well, anyone can strengthen their roster, but looking deeply into your team’s top “categories of need” is simply the best way to go.  Obviously, this...

Seasonal fantasy baseball leagues are nearing their ends, making it a great time to start looking into the future.  Dynasty league owners should already have started deciding on the best MLB prospects available to them-- whether it be for prospect drafts or free agent stashes.  However, there are a handful of projected MLB superstars who... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Kolten Wong, one of the Cardinals' top prospects, has arrived. He's debuting to open up a weekend series against the rival Cubs. Well, if you haven't been informed yet, Wong has impressive abilities with the bat. He's a plus-contact hitter with above-average speed. Assuming he stays in the... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: The Yankees have made their second significant transaction-- first they acquired Alfonso Soriano, and now it's Reynolds. After witnessing Soriano's impact post-trade, the former Indian third baseman figures to earn a starting gig. Even with A-Rod healthy, Reynolds should still find a spot in the lineup on most... Read More

For seasonal league owners and in some cases for keeper league owners, the goal is always to win now. Well in dynasty leagues, however, the key to success is to take a much more patient approach.  You have to at least let your players develop; that mean it's okay if your players struggle mightily in... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Marco Estrada was an interesting draft pick going into the season, but he failed to impress before getting injured in late May. The Brewers' rotation has been scuffling with injuries recently, but the right-hander finally appears healthy again. In two starts since coming off the D.L., all Estrada... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting ANALYSIS: Emilio Bonifacio has not offered mixed-leaguers much production, but all of that could change soon. He is no longer a Blue Jay, as he has been acquired by the Royals. The speedster has hit for a measly average (.218) while failing to steal bases at respectable clip (1 SB for... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting ANALYSIS: Two weeks have already gone by since the Veras trade, and the Houston closer saga still remains unresolved. The team opted to go with a closer-by-committee approach, but only two save opportunities have arisen. Jose Cisnero was initially expected to take over the role, but it never came to fruition.... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Brandon Belt has earned N.L. Player of the Week honors, but don't expect him to slow down any time soon. The preseason breakout candidate is seeing the ball better right now than he has all season. The 2 HR and 5 RBI last week may not have turned many heads,... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Dozier has been one of the few bright spots in the Minnesota lineup this year. Since the start of his recent outburst, he has transformed into a doubles machine: he has doubled in eight out of his last 13 games played, while posting five multi-hit performances. In fact,... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Ernesto Frieri has recently been removed from the closer's role for the second time this season. This time around, however, it appears other relievers will get a chance to audition for the the role. Just one day prior to the closer change, De la Rosa notched his first... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Darin Ruf has become the Phillies' everyday 1st baseman with Ryan Howard on the shelf. The Creighton product has recorded a hit in 11 out of 13 games, since receiving everyday at-bats. Today he went 2-for-4 with a HR, 2 RBIs and 2 Runs.  Over the last 14... Read More

We've come to the point in the fantasy baseball season when, especially in roto leagues, it's all but clear which teams are contending for the money spots.  In keeper and dynasty formats, it's important for those teams that are out of contention to make some transactions with an eye toward next year.  This means evaluating... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: After his game-winning, three-run shot against the Indians, Avila has now amassed three home runs in his last five games. With Miguel Cabrera hobbling and Prince Fielder slumping, the Tigers have discovered their newest offensive weapon. His .325 BA since the start of his recent hot-streak may be... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Tom Wilhemsen has been removed from the closer role for the second time, and now demoted to AAA.  Danny Farquhar has been handed the the last two save opportunities, and has converted them. There are no guarantees that he'll run away with the job, but it appears it is his... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Earlier today, Houston's closer Jose Veras was dealt to the Detroit Tigers. With the closer's role now vacant for the Astros, Jose Cisnero is expected to become the main beneficiary for saves. If the team chooses an alternative option or opts to use a committee, Wesley Wright and Josh Fields... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting ANALYSIS: Entering the season, the 26-year-old was handed (not earned) the starting shortstop role, thanks to a Derek Jeter injury. Being given a prime opportunity to prove himself as a regular, Nunez failed to take advantage. In an April to be forgotten, he batted a putrid .203 with a 13/7 K/BB... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: With a name sounding like a summer camp or amusement park, Lake has been flat-out raking since making his debut last week. The young third baseman has batted .484 while recording four multi-hit games in his first 7 major-league games. A slight regression is inevitable, but an impressive strikeout rate... Read More
