Second Basemen Set to Breakout in 2018

While holds are even tougher to predict than saves, the players we’ll highlight today include some elite setup men to target off the waiver wire for Week 3 of the fantasy baseball season. The more likely a team is to win, the more likely a pitcher will be eligible to earn the holds that could be the...

As we enter week three of the MLB season, most of the hot prospects and sleepers have likely been picked over in fantasy leagues. Now is the time to take advantage of the overlooked players and apparent busts that owners may have given up on. Several players have seen their ownership rates drop dramatically after... Read More

Regardless of your feelings about the superhero extravaganza known as Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice (I enjoyed it, despite the flaws), the movie is quickly fading away from theaters. At the end of the day, history will see it financially as a huge starter with no longevity, a superstar held down by its own... Read More

This early in the season, most of my advice boils down to, “Be patient.” The fantasy baseball season is a marathon, not a sprint. Nobody wants to fall behind early, but overreacting to small samples is a good way to make sure you stay behind. That doesn’t mean there aren’t moves to be made. Savvy... Read More

Welcome one, welcome all, to this look in at the leaderboard for hitter’s average exit velocity as of the beginning of April 19. Hopefully you've already read about hard hit rates, if not please click this! This is going to be a quick hitter, and some of these names can be presented with little comment.... Read More

Finding worthwhile outfield talent off the waiver wire is tricky business. There's always a catch. Player X in Toronto may mash homers against lefties, but only plays twice a week. Player Y in Miami may have excellent base stealing potential, but can't find playing time in a crowded outfield. These are all hypotheticals, of course. But that's just... Read More

Pitchers can make or break your night, on the field and for Daily Fantasy lineups. It's a no brainer to target guys like Clayton Kershaw and Chris Sale, but if you can avoid breaking the bank on a pitcher, then that's what you should do. Drafting affordable pitchers who have favorable matchups will free up... Read More

If you have not yet started fretting about your team's underperformance, good for you. But it'll likely sink in soon -- this sinking feeling that you're losing ground with no way to catch up. And the guys pulling you like quicksand, in a series panicked transactions, will be the first to go. Fortunately, some of... Read More

The early part of the season is a difficult one when your job is writing about fake baseball. During the offseason and spring training, you’re free to speculate (sometimes wildly) about pretty much any player. But when the games start counting, you’re forced to try drawing conclusions from microscopic samples. Not to mention there are... Read More

How about the surprise performances from these rookies? Trevor Story and Corey Seager should be less surprising than most (though I’m sure Story surprised a lot of people by just how much he mashed early), but other guys like Jeremy Hazelbaker and Tyler White have proven to be very productive rookies for both their major... Read More

Welcome to Week 3, RotoBallers! A lot happened in Week 2: Vince Velasquez's 16-strikeout gem (you're welcome for the recommendation to start him, by the way); Jaime Garcia's one-hitter (got that one); Chris Sale's shutout (nailed that one, too). One way to take advantage of matchups is to pick out the strong pitchers against the... 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

Week 2 is almost in the books and the fantasy baseball madness is in full swing. That means we’re all out here frantically panning for waiver wire gold. Starting pitchers have the most rollover during the season and the incredible depth of pitchers that are going across the league mean there are almost always candidates... Read More

Angel starter Nick Tropeano will make his second start of the season Sunday in Minnesota against the struggling Twins. The 25 year-old right-hander entered the rotation last week after Andrew Heaney hit the disabled list. With Heaney and C.J. Wilson each expected to miss at least a few more weeks, Tropeano will stake a claim... Read More

These are our early season Risers and Fallers. Editor’s Note: to read about waiver wire options, be sure to check out our famous waiver wire pickups... Read More

It takes a little while for the advanced stats to have any significance at all, so we're continuing to look at guys with unexpected roles and analysis of 2015 data. This week, we have a closer that came out of nowhere, a struggling St. Louis slugger, and a perennial All-Star enjoying an early season resurgence.... Read More

Hey there, RotoBallers! You've survived your first week of fantasy baseball. Surely you drafted Trevor Story and Tyler White and Ross Stripling. No, you didn't? Neither did most of us. (Now is the time when all of those guys who did draft one of those guys gets to gloat.) Even if you didn't draft those guys,... Read More

If you're still looking for a fantasy relevant middle infielder, well, join the club. Fortunately, there is a wealth of Major League outfielders to create some intriguing waiver wire situations for the sport's... Read More

You'll notice that there are fewer catchers on this list than last week's edition. I decided to pare down the list to six overall and sent the other four catchers back home, just like on shows like "The Bachelor/Bachelorette." No, I didn't give any of them a rose and I don't think any of them... Read More

It has not taken long for several rookies to make a name for themselves early in this season. Obviously, there is no bigger story on the season than Trevor Story of the Colorado Rockies.  Tyler White of the Houston Astros has really flown under the radar, but he has been a major force for Houston... Read More

In making lineups for Daily Fantasy, I'm inclined to check out past production. How a batter has faired against a team or pitcher last season. Location is also key, as places like Yankees Stadium, Rogers Center, and Coors Field are all favorable hitters ball parks. A stadium like Citi Field, despite recent opponent performances, typically... Read More

Prior to the season's commencement, I offered up a pair of players who could have been selected later in drafts as cheaper, yet comparable, alternatives to more highly-touted players. To continue the same train of thought, I will provide, on a weekly basis, underrated alternatives to overrated players. Aside from the first week of baseball... Read More
