About Nick Mariano - RotoBaller

Just your run of the mill fantasy sports player who loves talking shop. Just kidding. I'm actually a slightly above average fantasy sports player who loves talking shop. NY born and raised. I run on trails and hike up mountains. Addicted to apples and peanut butter. I could read about cognitive biases forever. Yankees, NY Giants, NY Rangers. However a decade of fantasy sports have really given me more of an appreciation for all teams. I also have a soft spot for the Buccaneers (it's a long story going back to Madden 2000). Feel free to reach out on Twitter, @NMariano53, I'll discuss just about anything.

Week 11 felt more on the “hit-or-miss” side, with several stars blowing up and several more falling flat, with few mediocre stat lines to help float our hopes and dreams. That felt dramatic to type, so maybe I'm just feeling emotional as the playoff picture in my leagues starts to take shape. As far as... Read More

Well, we finally have some closure with the Ezekiel Elliott situation. Of course, everyone and their mother was more than eager to alert us that Dallas missing tackle Tyron Smith was a bigger obstacle than missing Zeke.

As if the latest twist and turn in the Ezekiel Elliot saga wasn’t enough, Week 9 got off to a ridiculous start as not only did Zach Ertz show up on the inactive list, but Leonard Fournette was also scratched due to myriad disciplinary issues such as missing treatments and the team photo. Then we... Read More

Week 7 was a rather ugly slate overall, though folks who didn’t bail on Ezekiel Elliott were handsomely rewarded (as were all Dallas-player stocks) and many might feel that “no news is good news” after we’ve seen several top players go down these past few weeks.

We're in the final weeks of the fantasy baseball season and there's really no time to dilly-dally anymore.
