Start/Sit Matchups - Starting Pitchers (9/24 - 9/30)

Welcome back, RotoBallers. For those of you still playing - we're here to try and help with your  lineup decisions, and of course bring him those championship trophies! I'm filling in for the regular @Roto_Dubs this week, as he has "real life" stuff to attend to. For those who aren't familiar, this is our fifth year now... Read More

It is likely the playoffs in head-to-head leagues have concluded. Hopefully, you are the champion. The season is not over for those in roto leagues. Now is the time to focus on speculative adds for players who may see increased roles or move to a better situation. The corner infield positions traditionally offer power with... Read More

Welcome to Week 26 of the Cut List. This week I took a peek at the recent performances of Nomar Mazara, Travis Shaw, Adam Eaton, and Francisco Cervelli. Now is the time to really nail your free agent acquisitions. Each move has major implications in the final days of the season. Want some waiver wire... Read More

Last MI waiver wire pickups column of the year, Brent, can’t hold anything back now. After almost six months, it all comes down to this week. As we have every Sunday thus far, we'll look at the best middle infielders available in at least 50 percent of Yahoo leagues. These are based on standard 5x5... Read More

RotoBallers, I’ll dispense with the nonsense this week. The vast majority of you will be skipping the few paragraphs of color I offer prior to getting to the good stuff. If you’re here, you’re playing for dollars, belts, and glory. If you do read this, then let me once again put forth my impassioned plea... Read More

It's Week 3 of the NFL season, which means time to load up on baseball DFS! We've got an 11-game slate on the penultimate Sunday of the season. SEA @ TEX has the highest expected total at 10.5, with NYM @ WAS the next highest at 9.0. In this article, I will be providing you... Read More

There are 15 total games today, and I'm going to be utilizing players from the "All Day" slate. The MLB season is coming to an end, so we're seeing a lot of new faces, as teams get their young players valuable innings in the MLB. That generally adds a bit of potential value to most... Read More

Tonight's featured slate on DraftKings starts at 7pm eastern and covers nine games. In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 9/22/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays. You can also read more DFS advice and lineup picks for... Read More

Well, this is it, the final two-start streaming pitcher write-up of 2018. Thank you for being part of this ride and I hope I’ve helped you all, for at least a week or two. Now, let’s try to get you that championship! This week’s pitchers are a little more reliable. Typically, I aim for pitchers... Read More

Welcome back for another week of advice for points league waiver wire moves. This segment will include waiver wire adds, drops, and streaming pitchers for the upcoming week. This article will be geared specifically toward points leagues. Every points league is different, so keep that in mind. Walks and extra base hits are more valuable,... Read More

Welcome back to my hitting streamers column for Week 26, 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 50% owned or less and who play at least seven games in the week.  If someone jumps... Read More

We have a small three-game slate which starts at 4 pm and then the nine-game slate which starts at 7 pm. There are plenty of options on the slates you want to be paying up for and have some interesting matchups as we move closer to the end of the season. In this article, I... Read More

The Cubs have returned to their regular schedule of playing in the afternoon on Fridays, so we're back to a 14 game Main slate - but it's an attractive one! We've got a number of household names on the bump and a lot of important baseball to be played still (tight division races!), so tonight... Read More

With the battle for Chicago taking place at 4:10pm EST, we won’t have a full 15-game slate on Friday night for DraftKings. However, 14 games is still a full player pool to work with when constructing a lineup. Three games have an over/under of at least nine total runs, with the SEA/TEX matchup leading the... Read More

Congrats on (probably) making it through the first week or two of the playoffs! I got knocked out in the first round because almost all of my hitters decided to pretty much take a week off from being on base. My closers did great though, so I'm still qualified to create this week's Closers and... 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 26. 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

As I mentioned last week, I'm one of more than 100 fantasy analysts participating in this year's #2EarlyMock. Before we get into the blow-by-blow, kudos to Justin Mason for putting the whole enterprise together. If you're curious as to how other analysts are approaching their drafts, another tip of the cap to Smada, who is... Read More

I like to consider myself a pioneer of the streaming approach. I won a league about seven years ago by 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... 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 this week's Rookie Report, we'll be taking a look at several catchers making an impact in fantasy this month. Francisco Mejia made a splash in his first start for the Padres, hitting his first and second career home runs while driving in four in the 6-2 win over the Reds. While Mejia may have... Read More

Welcome to Week 25 of the 2018 MLB season and a new week of our investigation into the steepest power trenders in baseball, whether those trends are positive or negative. We have somehow blown by into mid-September, which means the homestretch of 2018 is upon us. Most fantasy baseball leagues have already had their trade... Read More

The Tampa Bay Rays would be leading three of baseball's six divisions with their current record, success largely the result of the successful "opener" strategy and Blake Snell's breakout campaign. It'll probably take fantasy owners all winter to figure out how to use openers to our advantage, but Snell's skills should be easy enough to... Read More

With only a couple of weeks left in the fantasy (and regular) baseball season, I'm sure you can all see the light at the end of the tunnel. This grueling marathon is almost over. But you need to finish strong! Whether you're locked in a head-to-head battle for the championship or trying to climb the... Read More

Welcome to Contact Rate Risers and Fallers! Our premium tools allow us to get out ahead of trends in player performance, including contact rate. Every Wednesday, we'll be looking at some players that have seen an increase in contact rate and some that have seen it decline. Contact rate can foretell a player's batting average... Read More

You know what it is--it's my updated starts/sits column for Week 25! Your friendly neighborhood @Roto_Dubs is back again this year with his weekly starting pitcher matchups. This is our fifth year now writing this weekly column, helping fantasy baseball managers pick the best pitchers weekly. Below are the projected starting pitching matchups for Week 25, and... 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. 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

Welcome back to Rotoballer’s series using Statcast to extrapolate, dig into, and commiserate over data to examine pitching performances. The weekly series will be dynamic as we fine-tune our findings and enlighten ourselves on the information and tools at our disposal. We’re closing in on two weeks left of regular season baseball and fantasy managers... Read More

Can you believe that the fantasy baseball season is almost over? It's well into the fantasy playoffs now, so this is the time for owners to start planning ahead for next season. Probably the hottest prospect this month who will maintain his prospect status heading into next season is Francisco Mejia. After homering twice in... Read More

Welcome to our surprising starts series. Every week we’ll be going over a few surprising starting pitcher performances around the majors to determine whether these starts were smoke and mirrors or something more. We are beginning to see good production from somewhat unknown and unheralded pitchers due to September callups. The pitchers that were covered... Read More

We begin our ridiculously early look at the 2019 fantasy baseball landscape with two of the bigger breakouts of the 2018 season. Trevor Story has gone from a barely top-100 asset to a potential MVP candidate, returning tremendous value to anyone who drafted him in March. Ronald Acuna Jr. should probably win the National League's... Read More
