Week 13 Waiver Wire - First Base (1B) and Third Base (3B)

Sometimes numbers can be deceiving, but in the fantasy writing world our job is to parse each statistic for its true worth and translate that into actionable advice. Simply put, I'm finally buying into Scooter Gennett this week because the man won't stop going deep. On the other hand, a man like Maikel Franco has... Read More

Welcome to Week 13 of The Watch List. We have had a few iterations already, but here’s a friendly reminder for those who forgot: Each week we’ll be updating this list full of players who you maybe aren’t quite ready to pick up (depending on league size, of course), but who need to be on...

Welcome back to the Cut List. Each weekend from now until the end of the season, I’ll be offering my thoughts on players who don’t deserve to keep drawing a nonexistent salary on your fake baseball teams. As we go deeper into the season, expect this list to become more ruthless, but also note the... Read More

Nothing is more frustrating in fantasy than an absolute stud you paid up for deciding to decline as soon as you roster him. You don't want to get rid of last year's Cy Young award winner or the most recent man to win a Triple Crown, yet the clock is ticking on your fantasy season.... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers! As a reminder, in this piece we're looking for weekly streamers in head-to-head leagues, which means players who are 50% owned or less in Yahoo! leagues and who have seven or more games in the week. These players could provide great value off the waiver wire, particularly in head-to-head leagues, for week... Read More

After a few relatively quiet weeks in bullpens across the league, week 11 gave us a little more to talk about, with some relievers heading to the disabled list while others came back from it. Giants closer Mark Melancon earned his first save in what likely seemed like a few decades for his fantasy owners. There... Read More

There are two viable approaches to the catcher position in fantasy. The first is to accept mediocrity, secure in the knowledge that most of your competitors will not be getting much from the position either. The second is to pay a premium for one of the few catchers who can actually hit, likely hurting your... Read More

Hello everyone, and welcome to my weekly Top-30 Fantasy Rankings for Impact Rookies! In this series, I will be going over the top prospects in baseball and discussing which ones figure to have an impact for the rest of this fantasy baseball season. We begin today’s weekly update with disappointing news regarding one of the... Read More

Welcome to week 12 of the fantasy baseball season. We’re continuing our mission to find you the best and brightest players with second base and shortstop eligibility. As noted last week, the own percentage of players are beginning to settle in, so this list may begin to have a bit less turnover, allowing us to... Read More

This week brings about two new names and two retreads from previous weeks. Not because we're being lazy, mind you. Some people just won't take sage advice when they see it! Ironically, both repeat customers are named Matt. I briefly considered putting Matt Chapman on the list so it could resemble a Monty Python skit,... Read More

Welcome to Week 12 of The Watch List. Each week we’ll be updating this list full of players who you maybe aren’t quite ready to pick up (depending on league size, of course), but who need to be on your radar regardless. We’ll look at several players in-depth each week and keep tabs on players... Read More

It wasn't that long ago that fantasy experts advised waiting on starting pitching, as aces were popping up on the waiver wire every year. A few still are, but the SP landscape as a whole is bleak. Between injuries and ineffectiveness, seemingly every owner in every league is in the market for starting pitching. Therefore,... Read More

Missing bats is the #1 way a pitcher can control his own fate. If hitters make contact, the pitcher is largely at the mercy of the atmosphere, the weather, the ball park, the ability/work ethic of his fielders, and sometimes just sheer luck. This is ultimately why strikeouts are so important. By looking at pitchers... Read More

Saves are an important component for many fantasy baseball leagues. Closers are one of the most volatile positions in fantasy baseball, and one of the highest turnover positions in MLB. Each year, closers drop like flies and many MLB teams make in-season changes due to injuries or poor performance. Stay on top of all closer depth... Read More

Potential should be a swear word in fantasy baseball. We think our roster could do this or should do that, so we stick with "our guys" through their early slump. This is usually the right call in April, but if we keep sticking until August with no improvement our fantasy season comes to an early... Read More

This isn't the place where you'll find me advocating Scooter Gennett as a "hot add" because of one miraculous game. Instead, I'm going to recommend reasonable options to help you at the corner positions. Finding the right player to fill your roster at first base or third base can make all the difference in deeper... Read More

Fantasy owners frequently limit their knowledge of the MLB player pool to only those who may be interesting from a fantasy perspective. Guys who stay in the majors without producing fantasy-relevant stats are generally assumed to have retired until we see them in a game. At that point, we say, "Player X is still active!?"...

Welcome to the 2017 edition of the Recently Promoted Prospects! Here I discuss some recently promoted prospects and what to make of their production for fantasy owners. We are getting closer and closer to the Super Two deadline for many players in the minors. In the coming weeks, we could start to see guys like... Read More

At this point of the season, available players tend to fall into one of two categories. The first is a breakout performer on a weaker club no one is paying attention to, such as Whit Merrifield of the Kansas City Royals. The second is a boring veteran player who seems to be performing as he... Read More
