The Cut List (Week 21) - Time to Let Go?

The Cut List (Week 20) - Time to Let Go?

It's now really getting to that point in the fantasy season where cuts are going to be highly based on statistical needs, which are much more obvious now than they were in April and May. This is more true of hitters, whose production in each statistic can vary more widely than for pitchers. Additionally, with the... Read More

The Cut List (Week 19) - Time to Let Go?

The trade deadline has come and gone. Arguably only one widely-rostered player, Luke Jackson, became unusable thanks to a trade at the deadline. So not much has changed around here. It's now really getting to that point in the fantasy season where cuts are going to be highly based on statistical needs, which are much... Read More

The Cut List (Week 18) - Time to Let Go?

Welcome to the last Cut List before the July 31 trade deadline. Emphasis on dead, because there has still been little action on the trade front. The next week should be pretty fun if things heat up. For now, however, players are on the team they're on, and judgments should be made accordingly. Stats are... Read More

The Cut List (Week 17) - Time to Let Go?

With the All-Star Break now firmly in the rear view mirror, the July 31 trade deadline is the next milestone. With no more August 31 waiver deadline, even fringe players will get traded and see their valuations change. For now, rumor and conjecture rule the day, so it's not a major factor in this week's...

The Cut List (Week 16) - Time to Let Go?

Not a ton has changed since last week given the one combined real game from Monday through Thursday. Friday doesn't exactly give us enough new information, either: as if Josh Bell opening the second half 0-for-4 would make anyone panic. That said, there are still decisions to be made. Fewer, given the lack of new... Read More

The Cut List (Week 15) - Time to Let Go?

The All-Star Break will be here after today's games. For players who won't participate in the game on Tuesday, it's a chance to take a break from the grind for several days. And several players could use one, like perhaps the cut suggestions below. Despite the days off, there's nothing really about the break that... Read More

The Cut List (Week 14) - Time to Let Go?

We're halfway there in the baseball season, but hopefully your fantasy team is living on more than a prayer. (By Jove, that's terrible. Apologies.) Unless it's a points league, categories are starting to take more precedence at this point. Every hitter on this week's Cut List comes with a list of categories in which a... Read More

The Cut List (Week 13) - Time to Let Go?

At this point in the season, nearly half over, you should pretty much know what you have on your fantasy team. (Unless you have Jose Ramirez.) Chances are, if you still have a certain frustrating player on your roster -- especially one you drafted -- you've had plenty of chances to remove them but have... Read More

The Cut List (Week 12) - Time to Let Go?

June is more than half over, meaning the season is nearly half over. And, as usual, some players' tenures on your fantasy team should be all over. One thing we're adding this week is a brief overview of the forcefulness of each cut suggestion. A "strong" endorsement means the player can be cut in pretty... Read More

The Cut List (Week 11) - Time to Let Go?

It's June 9, an exciting date to some, because it means another Cut List. (Were you thinking some other reason?) Last week's changeup, which involved cut suggestions in three different league sizes--10, 12, and 14/15 teams--continues. Stats are through Friday, June 7. New weekly reminders: Recommendations in one league size obviously apply to smaller leagues.... Read More

The Cut List (Week 10) - Time to Let Go?

Welcome to June, and to something a little different this week, although it may end up a one-week affair. Today we suggest a couple cuts each at varying league sizes: 10, 12, and 14-15 teams. Recommendations in one league size obviously apply to smaller leagues. You can also feel free to drop a shallower suggestion... Read More

The Cut List (Week 9) - Time to Let Go?

Happy Memorial Day Weekend. This the already last Cut List of May. Time flies, and so too can a player's fantasy value. Stats are through Friday, May 24. As we say every week: Remember that these recommendations are for standard leagues up to 12 teams, which of course means the players can be dropped in... Read More

The Cut List (Week 8) - Time to Let Go?

May is half over. That's scarcely believable, but it's true. Much more believable but equally true: there are plenty of players that should be axed. April showers can't bring May flowers for everyone, and some players even got that proverb mixed up: they are following up April flowers with damp May production. This analogy is... Read More

The Cut List (Week 7) - Time to Let Go?

The 2019 season is now one-fifth over for every team in MLB, and one-quarter over for some. By the end of the month in just under three weeks time, it'll be one-third finished. If you've hung on to a certain player in a certain roto league, depending on how often you played or benched them,... Read More

The Cut List (Week 6) - Time to Let Go?

Welcome to May. Whether you've hung on to a player since draft season, or picked up a hot bat early on, there are always going to be players on your chopping block. Below are some of them. Stats are through Friday, May 3. As we say every week: Remember that these recommendations are for standard... Read More

The Cut List (Week 5) - Time to Let Go?

Welcome to the final week of cuts in which you can still be told, "It's only April." However, you will not be told that. About one-sixth the season is now complete; that's still not much in the big scheme of things, but if you wait too long, suddenly it's the All-Star Break and someone has... Read More

The Cut List (Week 4) - Time to Let Go?

We're past the 10% mark of the season now for this, April's penultimate Cut List. That still doesn't mean free rein to chop off your roster anyone you don't like, but samples are only increasing, playing time divisions becoming clearer, injuries piling up. That said, the Watch-Out list of players to keep for now won't... Read More

The Cut List (Week 3) - Time to Let Go?

We're now midway through April, and your trigger finger may be getting a bit itchy. The baseball season is only a couple weeks old, however, and with more than 90% of the season to go it is still really early. Most teams had played about eight games through last weekend, and now that number is... Read More

The Cut List (Week 2) - Time to Let Go?

Although we are only one week into the baseball season, some of the players you may have drafted in the mid-to-late rounds of standard 10 and 12-teamers are probably not quite working out. Because you didn't spend too much draft capital on them, you don't have to worry about sunk costs and you can, if... Read More

The Cut List (Week 26): Time to Let Go?

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

The Cut List (Week 25): Time to Let Go?

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 Cut List (Week 24): Time to Let Go?

Welcome to Week 24 of the Cut List. This week I took a look at Brian Dozier, Dee Gordon, Billy Hamilton, and Matt Olson.

The Cut List (Week 23): Time to Let Go?

Welcome to Week 23 of the Cut List. Corey Dickerson, Michael Conforto, Maikel Franco, and Max Kepler should be cut in all standard league formats as we head into playoff time.

The Cut List (Week 22): Time to Let Go?

Welcome to Week 22 of the Cut List. This week I took a look at Marco Gonzales, Wil Myers, Brandon Belt, and Kyle Seager. As always, these suggestions apply to standard shallow league formats. You wouldn’t want to cut Wil Myers and Marco Gonzales in a deep league, would you? Want some waiver wire advice... Read More

The Cut List (Week 21): Time to Let Go?

Welcome to Week 21 of the Cut List. Last week we saw Jon Lester and Jed Lowrie bounce back after enduring major slumps in July. Those weren’t the best calls I’ve made this year, to say the least. This week I’m taking a look at Brian Anderson, Kyle Schwarber, Sean Newcomb, and Chris Taylor. All... Read More

The Cut List (Week 20): Time to Let Go?

Welcome to Week 20 of the Cut List. This week I’m taking a look at Starlin Castro, Jon Lester, Jed Lowrie, and Eric Thames. I explain why each player should be dropped in most standard shallow leagues. Last week’s cut candidates (Cesar Hernandez, Matt Kemp, Asdrubal Cabrera, Tim Anderson) went a combined 16-for-66 with seven... Read More

Welcome to Week 19 of the Cut List. Special thanks to Kyle Bishop for filling in for me last week while I was out of town on vacation in northern Minnesota.

Welcome to Week 18 of the Cut List. I'm your guest host this time around, filling in for usual steward Conor McElheney. Longtime RotoBallers may recall that I covered this beat last season.

The Cut List (Week 17): Time to Let Go?

Welcome to Week 17 of the Cut List. This week I took a peek at Ender Inciarte, Jake Lamb, Carlos Santana, and Jurickson Profar. All four players should be cut in all shallow standard leagues. Each player listed in the “better options” section will serve you better in the long run, so don’t gloss over... Read More
