Carlos Santana and Edwin Encarnacion Swapped - Fantasy Impact

As you may know, the AL defeated the NL 4-2 in the All Star Game. As a lifelong NL fan, this saddens me. I have to ascribe the blame to Terry Collins. Why was the completely unqualified Addison Russell allowed to play so long? Why did Jay Bruce and his replacement level performance log defensive... 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 15 of the fantasy baseball season. The more likely a team is to win, the more likely a pitcher will be eligible... 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

Melvin Upton Jr. is better than his brother. OK, that's a bit obvious this year, so how about this? Melvin (yes, we're talking about BJ) Upton is the best dual-threat (power/speed) fantasy player in the National League. At the All-Star break, Upton has 16 HR and 20 SB. Upton's value as a dual-threat player ranks... Read More

What’s up RotoBallers. As always, we are here to help with pitcher matchups every week of the season and help win some leagues. Obviously this week will be just the few days remaining until Week 16--most formats count both weeks together in head-to-head. Below are all of the projected starting pitching matchups for Week 15, including our... Read More

If you missed Part 1 yesterday, clicky clicky. As a reminder, these rankings were a collaborative effort between yours truly and fellow columnists/handsome devils Nick Mariano and Bill Dubiel. As such, they may not fully represent my personal views on each player, and if someone is ranked inappropriately, I'm pretty sure you can blame either... Read More

The second half is officially on, in a way that might resemble Donkey Kong. As teams increase roster movement in preparation of the trade deadline, certain role players may gain more prominent roles. With an absence of starts this week, we will focus more on relief pitchers who have performed well as of late. This... Read More

The American League came out victorious in the 2016 All-Star Game Tuesday, winning by the final score of 4-2. With home runs from the Royals' Eric Hosmer and Salvador Perez, Danny Salazar's clean second inning was all he needed to go home with the win. Though the outcome of the game has no fantasy effect,...

Last week I covered bargain batters who outperformed their draft day expectations. Today we will take a clairvoyant look in the near future to identify some players that could be acquired for a pittance, whose second half yield could help trailing teams get back into contention. We will be taking in this view from the... 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 15th... Read More

Welcome back to RotoBaller's midseason rankings update. We covered the top half of the outfield yesterday. Remember, these rankings were compiled by myself, Nick Mariano, and Bill Dubiel, and any players ranked too high or low are definitely the fault of my colleagues. Assume a standard 5x5 redraft league when reading. You can also see... Read More

At long last we've reached the half way point of the 2016 season. The deepest position in baseball, at least on the offensive side, has seen a slew of hitters filter across the semipermeable membrane of the waiver wire. The All-Star break is infamous for being a natural turning point for many hitters over the... Read More

Of course just a few days after I write my recently promoted prospects article and say that no major prospects will be promoted before the All-Star Break the Pirates promote first base prospect Josh Bell and the Nationals promote Trea Turner. And did you see Bell’s grand slam against the Chicago Cubs the other day?... Read More

It’s now time to embrace the summer heat and wade into the hot corner midseason rankings here at RotoBaller. Third base has been a position of perennial power over the years, and this season is no different. 14 of the top 100 players (not just hitters, players) are 3B eligible, as well as 25 being...

In case you didn't notice, it's All Star week. The MLB Futures Game was played on Sunday and featured some spectacular moments. For this week's Dynasty Review, let's talk about some of the players who made noise on the big stage. Alex Bregman and Yoan Moncada stood out at the plate, but they're both already among the most...

This column has (generally) been published on a weekly basis since the season started, yet it hasn't covered third basemen. It's mostly because the third base position runs so deep and has provided so much value that it's hard to say anyone could be considered overrated and deserves lower rates of ownership. A quick glance,... Read More

Welcome to the first breakdown of our midseason rankings here at RotoBaller. We are gathered here today to walk through the catcher rankings, analyzing some key names and providing tiers for your consumption. I feel like I just heard the collective grumble of millions, but I guess that sums up the C-slot in 2016. Assume a... Read More

While nobody will argue that the desired final end point to the marathon that is the grueling fantasy baseball season is staking claim to a league championship, veterans of this fair game relish a few other nuances of the grind along the way. There's the smug feeling of besting a rival in a trade, the nightly... Read More

Here we are, the All Star Break is upon us just like that. Okay yeah, technically games will play the day that this is published, but that doesn’t sound nice. Our marching orders here remain the same, looking at some low-owned starting pitchers who are worth discussing for better or worse. That is to say,... Read More

Over the last two weeks, we have profiled expensive draft day assets who have largely failed to live up to the hype. This week, we change it up a bit by discussing established players who have exceeded expectations thus far. All three have experienced success before. Jay Bruce was once a feared slugger. Gregory Polanco... Read More

Eduardo Nunez is an All-Star. While that is now a fact, it has taken many by surprise. The 29-year-old former Yankees prospect wasn't on anyone's radar before the season started and wasn't even guaranteed to be in the starting lineup on a cellar-dwelling Twins team. To take it a step further (as is my modus operandi),... 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 14 of the fantasy baseball season.

This is the second consecutive week that a Top-10 pitching prospect has been promoted to the big leagues. Top Pirates’ prospect, Tyler Glasnow, made his Major League debut Thursday against the Cardinals after his promotion following Jameson Taillon’s placement on the 15-day DL. With the All-Star Break next week, fantasy owners should not expect to... Read More
