Week 16 Waiver Wire: H2H Category Streamers

I like to consider myself a pioneer of the streaming approach. I won a league about seven years ago completely ignoring saves and just stacking up the starts each week. While streaming is undoubtedly more directly associated with pitching, there's plenty of value in streaming for offense as well. Maybe you have a stacked roster... Read More

I do enjoy the All-Star break, but forgive me for wanting it to end almost the second the final pitch is thrown in the All-Star game. Waiting for regular season games to come back in the dead of summer is no fun. I honestly had no idea what to do with myself Wednesday and Thursday.... Read More

I hope you were able to enjoy the small break from baseball DFS, where you could sleep in, enjoy the outside, and spend time with your family, until the marathon of a second half begins. Now, it’s time to buckle down and grind for the rest of the season. We have 14 games in our... Read More

News broke on July 19 that Padres closer Brad Hand will be moving to the shores of Lake Erie and donning the home blue of the Cleveland baseball club.

The stove is warming up! Just when we were all being entertained by the All-Star Game being the most 2018 baseball game of the year, the Dodgers and Indians were busy making their teams better for the playoff push. While we're far from done with trade rumors and actual trades, two big dominoes did indeed... Read More

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 in Week 17. One-inning middle relievers are the constant sources for holds and specialists can manage to secure a hold even with one out. However, while specialists can get many... 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

In my first three seasons of writing this piece, I did well enough. Always a few clunkers, but generally nailing a couple and being in general vicinity on a couple more. 2018 has not been so kind. The spirit of the exercise is lighthearted even though it’s tilted toward failure if you’re being truly bold.... Read More

With the All-Star break now behind us, it's time to look ahead to the second half of the Fantasy Baseball season. While we already know who most of this year's breakouts are, looking at you Max Muncy, catcher remains one of the trickiest positions to figure out in fantasy circles. Those who sacrificed early picks... Read More

Every year there are players that show up out of nowhere that have us scratching our heads in amazement. In fantasy baseball, if you're savvy enough to pick up on these newcomers to the scene before anyone else does, you're sitting pretty. In 2018, that guy has been Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar. At... Read More

After weeks of rumors, analysis, endless speculation, and a brief snag, it has finally happened: baseball’s most-prized trade target is finally moving to a new home. The Baltimore Orioles have traded shortstop phenom Manny Machado to the Los Angeles Dodgers for outfielder Yusniel Diaz (Dodgers No. 4 prospect), third baseman Rylan Bannon (No. 27), pitchers...

It's officially the All-Star Break, a time when it's always fun to take a closer look at who was on the rosters. You have surefire studs like Mike Trout and Bryce Harper. You have guys who came out of nowhere such as Blake Snell and Jesus Aguilar. Finally, you have elder statesmen like Nick Markakis... Read More

Every week in baseball, a significant player will hit the disabled list, slip into a slump, or get traded out of a good spot.
