Points Leagues Waiver Wire Pickups: Week 7

H2H Category Streamers - Week 7 Waiver Wire

There are plenty of strategies that fantasy managers explore in hopes to get an advantage over their opponent. Heavy lineup, heavy starting pitchers, no catcher, all (or mostly) reliever staff, no reliever staff, etc. Even if you play a balanced lineup, injuries can cause holes. A few weeks without a key player won’t kill a... Read More

Two-Start Pitcher Streamers: Week 7

Well, seven weeks in and I'm already struggling to come up with a decent intro. I'm calling a mulligan on the intro this week and let's just get into the recap of the last two weeks. Julio Teheran is the winner in Week 5 despite going 0-1 in his two starts. After allowing four runs... Read More

Stop Sleeping On Domingo German

When Luis Severino hit the injured list prior to the 2019 season, the Yankees pitching rotation appeared to lose their most threatening starter. When you lose a staff ace and a 19-game winner from the previous year, it undoubtedly shakes up the locker room as well as the mindset of upper-management for the upcoming season.... Read More

Closers and Saves Report - Week 6 Waiver Wire

Some pretty important moving and shaking went on this week in the bullpens across the league. Craig Kimbrel is still looking for somebody to love him (Queen reference in intro: ✔), and I'm still recommending anyone holding him in fantasy leagues without an NA spot lets him go. Thought it would be good to get... Read More

Digging Deeper: AL-Only Waiver Wire Report for Week 6

Every week in baseball, a significant player will hit the disabled list, slip into a slump, or get traded out of a good spot. How fantasy owners adapt to these situations can make or break the season as a whole. One lousy add might not hurt the long-term standing of a team, but failing to... Read More

Pablo Lopez, Miami's Other Breakout Starter

Miami Marlins right-hander Pablo Lopez quietly dominated the Braves on Sunday, tossing six scoreless innings with one walk and six strikeouts. That was his second scoreless outing in his last three appearances, and it lowered his season ERA to 4.03 - along with a 1.08 WHIP and a 25% strikeout rate. Lopez's 4.03 ERA, even... Read More

Catcher Waiver Wire Pickups For Week 6

With the calendar flipping over to May last week, we as fantasy managers, have to legitimately assess the state of our team's play so far.

2B and SS Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 6

Baseball is neither fair nor consistent, this much we all know. It is however, predictable. Not in the sense that we know what will happen with each player taking each individual AB, but in the sense that based on the complete picture of performance formed by a player's peripheral figures, we can typically feel a...

1B and 3B Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 6

As the calendar flips into May, you might find yourself struggling to remain patient with underperforming players on your fantasy teams.

Who Can Breakout in 2019? The Yandy Man Can...

When the Tampa Bay Rays traded Jake Bauers and cash money to acquire Yandy Diaz, it was a move that seemed to prompt both excitement and head scratching. Bauers was already an everyday outfielder who projected as an above average outfielder very soon. Diaz was a toolsy but frustrating player chiseled of the same stuff... Read More

Starting Pitcher Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 6

It is now May, so you may now panic. Kidding. There's still a lot of season left to be played. But things are starting to take shape, and if that shape isn't to your liking, perhaps it's time to call in some reinforcements from the waiver wire. That's precisely what this column is designed to... Read More

Outfield Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 6

Managers can easily make decisions to affect their team positively, but often they're too hesitant, cautious, or even scared.

The Waiver Wire Watch List: Week 6

As important as it is to be active on the waiver wire, snagging that next hot bat or pitcher on a roll before anyone else can, let's be honest--there are only so many roster spots.

Points Leagues Waiver Wire Pickups: Week 6

Welcome to the RotoBaller waiver wire column which falls in-line with most fantasy “who should I pick up?” articles with a skew towards points leagues. Yes, there is positive correlation to standard 5x5 scoring but in our format, strikeouts, walks and non-homer extra-base hits are uniquely critical. In points leagues, specific categories matter less, and... Read More

Vlad Who? Meet Yordan Alvarez, A.L. Rookie of the Year Candidate

Yordan Alvarez is not Vladimir Gurrero Jr. and that's a good thing.

Fantasy baseball owners, in particular, should be careful not to get carried away, as only one person in... Read More
