It's hard to believe that the Major League Baseball season is almost a month old. And while it's still very early, and sample sizes are still extremely small, certain trends are starting to develop. In addition, minor leaguers are starting to establish themselves as players worthy​ of call-ups. Last season, I regularly took a look... Read More

Welcome back to this investigative piece where we examine players who have seen some notable changes in their power profiles -- for better or for worse -- in 2017. As usual, you don’t need me to tell you that Miguel Sano or Aaron Judge are strong or that Jarrod Dyson and Billy Hamilton are toward... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 41% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: The closer landscape remains a wild, crazy ride for fantasy baseball owners in 2017. After Jeanmar Gomez was yanked from the closer's role, veteran Joaquin Benoit nailed down the first save opportunity for the Phillies. It seemed that the new closer had been chosen,... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in Saves Leagues OWNED IN: 17% / 55% of Yahoo Leagues for Glover / Kelley ANALYSIS: Figuring out the Nationals closer situation has been a headache since before the season started. Blake Treinen was given the job initially, but as manager Dusty Baker said “This ain’t working.” Now, we’re left with Shawn... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 37% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: After getting torched repeatedly to start the season, and blowing multiple games, the Rangers have finally done something about it by placing Sam Dyson on the disabled list. This is the best possible situation for most folks involved. Dyson can have time to work out his... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Saves Leagues OWNED IN: 32% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Current closer Zach Britton had been placed on the disabled list for the Baltimore Orioles with a forearm injury. It's unclear how long he will be sidelined for, and Brad Brach is expected to serve as the closer for now. This is a surprising... Read More

Welcome to the 2017 edition of the Recently Promoted Prospects! You all may remember this series from last year where I discuss some recently promoted prospects and what to make of their production for fantasy owners. Being that this is the first week we are starting this series up, and there are half a million... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Saves Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Surprise surprise, the thin ice that Jeanmar Gomez was tip-toeing around on cracked rather quickly. Replaced as the closer, Gomez's fantasy value has plummeted. He is no longer worth owning in any fantasy baseball league, even deep NL-only leagues.  Drop him immediately, if not... Read More

Welcome back to my hitting streamers column for Week 2, taking a look at hitters to add or stream off the waiver wire for this week's scheduled games. To keep things simple, I pick from players who are less than 50% owned and who play at least seven games in the week.  If someone jumps... Read More

Now that it's Week 2 of the fantasy baseball season, rotations are all jumbled up, and we can really get to streaming. Time to get rid of that bench bat off to a slow start or that middle reliever you have hanging around. Instead, maximize your starts with some pitchers who have two starts this... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in Most Saves Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Sam Dyson blew the save chance tonight against the Indians, giving up a grand slam to Francisco Lindor. His final stat line ended up being five earned runs, with three hits and two walks. Not good, especially after losing the same for the Rangers on Opening Day. That's... Read More

The 2017 season is finally upon us, which means it's time to start overreacting to insanely small samples. Well, no - don't actually do that. As a general rule, you shouldn't be making any drastic decisions at a time when Madison Bumgarner is tied for the league lead in home runs. But that doesn't mean you... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Saves Leagues OWNED IN: 36% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: After an entire off-season of speculation, the Athletics may have tipped their hand on their closer for this season. Last night, Santiago Casilla nailed down the first save opportunity for Oakland. Ryan Madson and Sean Doolittle were not chosen to close the game out, and were... Read More

Baseball is finally back. In light of this, let's give that free agent pool one last look over before the stats start flying. Here are the best players who are owned in 0-25% of Yahoo leagues. You can see our column on 25-50% owned players as well. These are your deeper Week 1 waiver wire pickups and... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Draft / Add in All Saves Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Roberto Osuna will start the season on the DL for the Toronto Blue Jays. It's unclear how long he will be sidelined for, and Jason Grilli is expected to serve as the closer for now. Joe Biagini may be another option for... Read More

In terms of predicting who will be a leader in Ks for an entire year, it is safe to be on one of the obvious studs to hold that position. It's time to be bold, though. If you are able to find one or even two starters that breakthrough the 200 K threshold unexpectedly, it... Read More

Before you enter your draft room this year, it would behoove you to check out our ADP analysis pieces here at RotoBaller.

BALLER MOVE: Draft / Add in All Saves Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: At last, the speculation is over. Blake Treinen has officially been announced as the closer for the Washington Nationals. Not Shawn Kelley, and not Koda Glover (gasp!). If you are in a league that values saves, go add him now. If you... Read More

The key to winning a championship in fantasy baseball is to find gems in the late rounds of your drafts. Anyone can draft a top-10 player, but only those who truly prepare can find the diamonds in the rough. Below are some 2017 deep outfielder sleepers for the National League. I will be analyzing five... Read More

In my starting pitchers’ piece, I noted how I wanted top starting pitchers, but very few had an ADP at or lower than my rankings. Thus, in order to fill my goal of acquiring top starting pitchers, I had to search for relative value; those who had ADPs close to my rankings became relative values.... Read More

This article first appeared on the Metro news publication. Our long national nightmare is nearly over. No, not that one…here we’re referring to the lack of baseball. Opening Day is right around the corner, and not a moment too soon. After last week’s look at the busts, let’s end draft season on a happy note... Read More

Wins are a fickle stat and often don’t seem to benefit the most deserving pitchers in the game. One need only look at the leaderboard last season to see the likes of Hector Santiago, Josh Tomlin, and Collin McHugh with as many wins as Jose Quintana. That can make it frustrating and often difficult to... Read More

As we’ve discussed, points leagues are a bit of a different animal from the more popular head-to-head and rotisserie formats. One of the easiest and best ways to ensure that you’re making a smooth transition between these disparate styles is to identify players whose values change most. Today, to conclude this series, we're looking at... Read More

The top half of the second base position is littered with talented players, from expected... Read More
