AL-Only Waiver Wire Team of the Week: MLB Week 26

As we wrap up the final week of games before the All-Star Break, it is time to start preparing for the second half. One of the best ways to do that is pluck up a few lottery tickets in hopes of striking big on a second half savior or two. With that in mind, take... Read More

Recently, we’ve built a tool that identifies the biggest trends in contact rate over the last seven days. The tool can be found here. Keep in mind, any statistic being viewed in such a small sample size... Read More

I'll begin by patting myself on the back for last week's column. Nobody else was writing about Jeimer Candelario last week - at least not until the Cubs announced his promotion to the majors. How's that for a timely report? Ok, fine. I didn't exactly hit the nail on the head. After praising Candelario for... Read More

If you're playing in a full-season league, you just crossed the halfway point; in a playoff format, maybe closer to the two-thirds mark, depending on how the duration of your playoffs. And if you're in the top half of the standings or even just outside it, you have a great chance of contending until the... Read More

Welcome back RotoBallers. How about that last week of action for the Washington Nationals and their pitchers? Top prospect Lucas Giolito was finally called up. Then Stephen Strasburg came off the DL and pitched a gem. Joe Ross was placed on the DL after a noted loss in velocity late in his last start against the Cincinnati... Read More

A wise fantasy baseball manager never rests. He is never satisfied with his team and is always on the hunt for the player that can help in both the present and future. For this article, we’ll focus on the present, as we present the top pitcher streamers who’ll be making two outings this week. We do this every week,... Read More

Whether it’s because of an injury or poor performance, there are always opportunities to stream players off the waiver wire. The best players to stream are those who are under-owned and face appealing match-ups for the upcoming week. Here are five players who are readily available in Fleaflicker leagues and have attractive match-ups during the... Read More

Fellow RotoBallers. The MLB All-Star Break is creeping up on us... time flies when you're having fun. With that comes the second half of the fantasy baseball season, and the eventual stretch run (for most leagues). We are here to help you dominate your leagues when it counts most. Today we are bringing you our... Read More

RotoBallers, as always, we’re constantly trying to come up with new features that will help you dominate your fantasy leagues.

Missing bats is the #1 way a... Read More

Continuing last week's trend, this week we profile three more players that cost a fortune on Draft Day and thus far have failed to deliver. Maikel Franco is one of the few MLB-caliber players on Philadelphia's roster. Adrian Gonzalez has lost his title as perhaps the safest selection in fantasy sports. Bryce Harper is following... Read More

Will Harris is the next Dennis Eckersley. Actually, Eckersley had a decent career as a starter before turning into a dominant closer at age 32. But you get the idea. Harris's sudden emergence has been quite the surprise. If you saw this coming, maybe you should be playing the stock market instead of fantasy sports.... Read More

For the second consecutive week, a couple of prospects made headlines with promotions to the big leagues. First baseman A.J. Reed debuted for the Houston Astros on Saturday. The New York Mets promoted outfielder Brandon Nimmo in the wake of Michael Conforto’s demotion to Triple-A. And lastly the Pirates promoted two prospects: pitcher Chad Kuhl and shortstop...

This article first appeared in the Metro news publication. Last week, we discussed some of the first half’s most pleasant surprises for fantasy owners. Today we turn our attention to a few players who have fallen short of preseason expectations. Will they perform better during the season’s second half? Editor's Note: RotoBaller offers the best Premium... Read More

The second (technically third) edition of the weekly promoted prospects list had a tough act to follow after the last issue covered the top prospects called up between the previous two editions. That included guys like starting pitchers Julio Urias, Blake Snell and Jameson Taillon as well as near-superstar catcher Willson Contreras and speedy shortstop... Read More

The All-Star break is around the corner, but there are still some guys out there who can make a difference on fantasy rosters. Some teams will become sellers and turn playing time over to their young prospects. Building your own roster for the future may be your own best course of action. Now is also... Read More

While holds are even tougher to predict than saves, the players we’ll highlight today include some elite setup men that have proven to be closer candidates to target off the waiver wire for Week 13 of the fantasy baseball season. The more likely a team is to win, the more likely a pitcher will be eligible... Read More

As we head toward the All-Star break, it's time to evaluate some players who may be headed for a turn-around in the second half of the season. This list represents players who haven't yet garnered a great deal of attention in mixed-leagues, streaming options suitable only for deeper leagues or category specialists who may fill... Read More

We're in Week 13 of the season. Yes, there are people out there who are superstitious and think that 13 is an unlucky number. Surveying this group of catchers, it does seem like Jason Vorhees carved out a bloody swath. The victims include people like Francisco Cervelli, who has been bouncing on and off the... Read More

You’re not going to believe this, but Carlos Correa had a pretty phenomenal week and Whit Merrifield did not. Zach Davies’ ratios weren’t pretty in his last start, but he did strike out nine batters in only five innings. Conversely, while Jason Hammel produced a quality start against the Marlins, he struck out only three... Read More

This week's list is composed of one riser, one faller, one returning from the DL and one just making his big league debut. It's a fine cast of characters who have been marginalized to the fringe of fantasy relevance. Most fantasy owners take note of the risers; that is, they check the waiver wire for... Read More

When preparing the Dynasty Review, I always begin by checking in on my picks from the previous week. The big prediction was the promotion of Brandon Nimmo. I can't take much credit for that one. There were already grumbles about Michael Conforto's impending demotion. I don't expect any rapid call ups from this week's crew. I... Read More

Hard to believe we’re nearly at the halfway point of the 2016 season, isn’t it? It’s been a bit of a down year offensively at first base, so hopefully you’ve found this feature helpful. Well, ideally, you drafted one of the big names who haven’t disappointed, but you get the point. Remember, in addition to... Read More

Over the course of the season I’ll be giving you two players at second base and shortstop per week who I think can help your team. These players are usually widely available in any format, and should turn nice profits in the weeks to come. As always, feel free to reach out to me directly... Read More

Risk in fantasy sports is supposed to be the thing you balance against upside toward the end of your draft. Everyone should get roughly equal early round talent, and then teams differentiate themselves by guessing right on lesser names. Except it doesn't always work out that way. Sometimes your highly priced brand name superstar contributes... Read More

  The Colorado Rockies are playing against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Coors Field again. I am going to avoid this game, along with the rest of the game after 4:00pm EST. Instead, this article will focus on the early games. It will make for a more interesting read. Editor's Note: RotoBaller has the best Premium MLB Subscription for only $1.99... Read More

The theme for today is big name pitchers. With the likes of Clayton Kershaw, Johnny Cueto, Jose Fernandez, and Chris Sale on the mound, there's no shortage of aces to choose from. Stephen Strasburg was scheduled to start today, but has been scratched with a back injury. Between the star pitchers and some stud hitters,... Read More
