Francisco Rodriguez (RP, MIL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately in All Leagues ANALYSIS: Francisco Rodriguez, and not projected closer Jim Henderson, got the save today for the Milwaukee Brewers. This comes as a bit of a surprise, as K-Rod was expected to operate as the setup man for the Brewers in 2014. But saves are saves, so if you have room on your team... Read More

Matt Lindstrom (RP, CWS) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately in All Leagues ANALYSIS: The big closer news today is that White Sox manager Robin Ventura has decided to go with Matt Lindstrom as the team's closer over Nate Jones. If you play in a league that counts saves, and Lindstrom is still available, stop what you're doing now and go pick... Read More

Sergio Santos (RP, TOR) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately in All Leagues ANALYSIS: With the news released today that closer Casey Janssen will start the season on the DL, Toronto's GM Billy Anthopoulos confirmed that Sergio Santos will fill-in as the team's closer until Janssen returns. Steve Delabar may get some looks as well, but keep in mind that Santos was a former closer and racked up 30...

J.J. Hoover (RP, CIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues ANALYSIS: The Reds bullpen is a mess right now, and there is no locked in closer slated to start the season. With Aroldis Chapman's recent injury, there is an opening for someone to step up and grab the closer's role. Jonathan Broxton and Sean Marshall are also dealing with their own... Read More

Dee Gordon (SS / 2B, LAD) - Waiver Wire Analysis

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues ANALYSIS: By now we all know what Dee Gordon brings to the table in fantasy leagues. He's a speed demon, and can rack up SBs in bunches for your team. The problem is he hasn't been able to get on base much the past 2 years when given at bats. It... Read More

Joakim Soria (RP, TEX) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Normally we wouldn't add a player to the waiver wire pickups list if they're already 65% owned - but with the recent news that Soria has officially been named the Texas closer over Neftali Feliz, this is a reminder that he needs to be owned in all leagues. If your draft has... Read More

Nick Castellanos (3B / OF, DET) - Waiver Wire Pickup

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Highly-touted prospect and rookie Nick Castellanos is off to a scorching start in spring training, batting .400/.488/.689 over 45 at bats to go along with 2 HRs, 16 RBIs, 9 R and 2 SB.  Not too shabby.  Of course this is only spring training, but Castellanos is a big...

Alcides Escobar (SS, KC) - Waiver Wire Analysis

BALLER MOVE: Stash in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Escobar is coming off a disappointing 2013 season, where he put up a .234/.259/.300 line and a lowly .559 OPS. Escobar will never get you any power production, or win you any leagues on his own, but he has stolen 22, 35 and 26 bases the past three seasons.... Read More

Chad Qualls (RP, HOU) - Waiver Wire Analysis

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting ANALYSIS: We know a few things: the Astros don't have a very good team this year, the Astros won't win many games this year, and the Astros don't have a slam dunk closer lined up.  What we don't know, is who will actually be getting the saves opportunities here in 2014.  Chances are...

Yordano Ventura (SP, KC) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: It's never too early to hit the waiver wire in fantasy baseball.  If your league has already drafted, and players are available to be picked up on waivers, it's show time.

Start 'Em: Lineup Picks for Fantasy's Championship Week

Nothing is a guarantee in fantasy football, but we can always take calculated risks. I generally try not to take too many risks come playoff time, and prefer to roll with my big guns that have gotten me this far, even if there's a tempting option to stream or start off my bench. But even... Read More

Two of the best and most talented young wide receivers in the NFL had huge games today in Week 13 of NFL action. Ironically, both the Bears and Brown lost their games to  bottom-of-the-barrel NFL teams, but it certainly wasn't because of the extraordinary efforts of these two budding superstars.   Alshon Jeffery & Josh Gordon...

Christine Michael, Seattle Seahawks

Baller Move: Stash in Deeper Leagues Analysis: Marshawn Lynch has been an elite running back again in 2013, and has been beasting it recently as usual. But in Seattle’s Week 10 matchup against the Falcons Michael rushed 8 times for 33 yards, all of that coming late in the game with the Seahawks in clock-killing mode. His... Read More

Dennis Johnson, Houston Texans

Baller Move: Stash in Deeper Leagues Analysis: The Texans have had some significant changes the past few weeks. Case Keenum has replaced Matt Schaub as their starting quarterback, and Arian Foster’s injuries have finally caught up with him.

James Starks, Green Bay Packers

Baller Move: Add in Deeper Leagues Analysis: With the injury to Aaron Rodgers, an emphasis on the Green Bay running backs and their rushing attack has become even more important. Eddie Lacy has been a workhorse, and one of the best RBs in the NFL over the past few weeks. But Starks is finally healthy, and has... Read More

Jonathan Stewart, Carolina Panthers

Baller Move: Add in Deeper Leagues Analysis: The Panthers have a running back committee in their backfield, as Stewart is getting work along with DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert. None of the RBs had a great game in Week 10, but Stewart had 22 snaps while Williams only played 20. He was given 13 carries against a... Read More

Donald Brown, Indianapolis Colts

Baller Move: Add in Deeper Leagues Analysis: Brown had a decent game in Week 10 versus the Rams, as he excelled in the passing game racking up 5 catches for 64 yards and a touchdown.

Tight End ADP Winners and Losers: 2019 Season Review

I've always believed that it is easier to lose a fantasy championship than to win it on draft day.
