NL-Only Waiver Wire Team of the Week: MLB Week 25

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

After a large Monday slate, we have another massive Tuesday slate. There are 15 games today, but only 14 on the main slate. The other game features the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees, but we will not be covering that game in this article. In this article, I will be providing you... Read More

We have a monster 14-game slate to break down today, and there are some great options across the board. There are a few high-priced pitchers on the slate you should be looking to pay up for, along with plenty of bats you want to jam into your lineups. In this article, I will be providing you... Read More

It’s a 12-game slate on Monday night, as all matchups start at 7:05pm EST, or later. Three of those games have an over/under of at least nine total runs, with the TB/TEX game leading the way at 10.5 total runs. As for the pitching on the docket, no team is a heavy favorite (-200 odds,... Read More

We've got a pretty full Monday slate filled with middle-tier pitchers. With that kind of slate, I generally look to the positive hitting environments, in this case the focus will be on the Rays at Rangers and Reds at Brewers. In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for... 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...

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

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

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

Welcome to Week 25 of the Cut List. This week I’m taking a look at Adam Jones, Carlos Gonzalez, Odubel Herrera, and Starlin Castro. All four players should be cut in most standard shallow formats. We’re in the thick of the fantasy playoff season and we need to own players who are actually producing results.... Read More

The finish line of the 2018 season is in sight. If you’re still in the hunt, congratulations are in order. Even if you fall short, to have successfully navigated the slings and arrows of five-plus months to get to this point is commendable. Hopefully, this column has and will continue to aid you in your... Read More

If you're reading this, then you likely still have some skin in the game. The championship round of the playoffs is starting in head-to-head leagues. Also, there are only a couple of weeks left for your Roto leagues. Whether you are coasting to a victory or scrounging for wins, take some time now to inventory... Read More

Welcome back to my hitting streamers column for Week 25, 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

If you’re reading this then congratulations, you’re still alive in your fantasy baseball league (H2H or roto). This is the penultimate two-start streamer post for 2018 and we have some good names to add to your list when deciding which arms to choose with your allotted free agent signings. From this group, we mainly have... 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

If you're still reading this, you're most likely either in the playoffs or winding down the year in a rotisserie league. Either way: congrats! This week was another interesting one in bullpens across the league, one that will certainly affect not only the fantasy playoffs but also the real MLB playoffs next month. There's bullpen... 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 25. 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

Friday Five: Vexing Valuations

With almost all of my fantasy teams dead in the water at this point, my attention has already begun turning toward the future. Naturally, upon receiving an invitation from The Great Fantasy Baseball Invitational overlord, RotoGraphs writer, and t-shirt inspiration Justin Mason to participate in this year's Too Early Mock Draft, I jumped at the... 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

Welcome to Week 24 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. September has finally arrived, which means the homestretch of 2018 is upon us. Most fantasy baseball leagues have already had their trade deadlines come and... Read More

This will be the last column of the year that pays any attention to 2018 forecasts. With H2H playoffs winding down and roto leagues all but locked up, there just isn't that much that statistical analysis can do over a sample size of two weeks. We'll keep at it though by examining some of the... Read More

It's safe to call this the middle of September, right? With just under three weeks remaining in the fantasy (and regular) baseball season, there are barely any rules or conventions that you should force yourself to play by. Identify your needs and go. Do the thing! I believe in you, and I (mostly) believe in these... Read More

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

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. This week we saw a pitcher flirt with a perfect game, another solid performance from a no-name pitcher, and the possible resurgence... Read More
