Let's mine through the poop pile and see if we can dig out...I don't know, some undigested corn or something. There's a few good ones here. SHUT UP, I don't see you making any bold predictions. 1. Max Kepler hits 30 bombs AND is a top-30 outfielder.   Ehhhhhh not so much. Kepler fell outside... Read More

Never have I looked forward to writing a season recap so much. I didn't do as well in my fantasy leagues this year, mainly due to lack of time attending to my lineups. Nor did half of these predictions come close to coming true. Sometimes it just takes one thing to make it all worthwhile.... Read More

One of the my favorite articles of the year is to write up my bold predictions for what will happen in the upcoming fantasy baseball season. Another one of my favorite articles is looking back on those bold predictions to see how great (terrible) my predictions wound up being. I will tell you right now,... Read More

What’s even more fun than making bold predictions? Looking back at the end of the season to see how good (or so, so hilariously bad) they were. It's my turn to determine if my preseason picks make me a Champ or a Chump. I was terrible this year, so the answer is the latter. Let's... Read More

Reviewing JB's 2017 Bold Predictions

What’s even more fun than making bold predictions? Looking back at the end of the season to see how good (or so, so hilariously bad) they were. As Michael Scott once said, "It takes a big man to admit his mistakes, and I am that big man."    JB's Rowdy (Bold) Predictions for 2017 1. Buster Posey... Read More

What’s even more fun than making bold predictions? Looking back at the end of the season to see how good (or so, so hilariously bad) they were. Just like with the preseason pieces in March, I’m kicking off the review of our RotoBaller staff’s 2017 bold predictions. Let's get to it.   Grading the Predictions... Read More

Way back in March, I wrote a multi-part tutorial on how to use all of the metrics cited in Champ or Chump. I concluded the series by introducing Barrels and Brls/BBE, arguing that the metrics could have been used to predict Chris Carter's 2016 HR title had they been available before the season started. Gary... Read More

Owners in weekly formats have set their last lineup for the season. The transaction wire for daily formats has likely fallen silent with most of the teams settled into their final place in the standings as well. There are probably a few leagues out there with races going until the final day, but rooting for... Read More

Week 26 Waiver Wire - Outfield

Welcome back to the Outfield Waiver Wire, where we look at the best outfielders available in at least 50 percent of Yahoo leagues. Consider this column your recommendations for Week 26 outfield waiver wire pickups. Even now, in championship week, there are players floating around on the waiver wire who could make a difference for your fantasy... Read More

If you play in a weekly league, this weekend is likely your last opportunity to set a lineup before the winner is crowned. There is a widely held belief that you cannot move up in rate stats such as batting average or ERA this late in the season, but you actually can most of the... Read More

Welcome back, one last time in 2017, to the Cut List. With the season coming to a close next weekend, almost any player who isn’t helping your cause could justifiably be considered a cut in redraft leagues. That makes this final installment somewhat more challenging, and necessitates a minor tweak in format. Instead of spotlighting... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 24% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Washington Nationals outfielder Michael A. Taylor only has five hits in his last eight games, but did have a three hit game on September 20 and has three multi-hit games in his last 10 games. Taylor is hitting .292 with four home runs... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Nick Williams has frequently been on our waiver wire list here at Rotoballer and back-to-back multi-RBI games could show that he is hot once again. Williams only has a .208 batting average over the last seven days, but has a... Read More

This is it - the final week of the baseball season (sheds single tear). For those trying to clinch a championship or just a better final position, here are some players that could warrant starting, sitting, adding, or dropping, depending on your league and team's circumstance. I'll focus on lightly owned players to add or... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers! As a reminder, in this piece we're looking for weekly streamers in head-to-head leagues, which means players who are 50% owned or less in Yahoo! leagues and who have seven or more games in the week. These players could provide great value off the waiver wire, particularly in head-to-head leagues, for the final... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 38% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Seattle Mariners outfielder Mitch Haniger only has a .208 batting average over the last seven days, but does have two home runs in that time span and his huge September puts him on the fantasy radar. This month, Haniger is hitting .350 with 10... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 50% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dexter Fowler has been white hot over the last seven days and is not only a good player to add this week, but also is one that can help you win a fantasy championship. Fowler is 11-for-21 with six extra-base hits,... Read More

With only two weeks left in the regular season, it is not an exaggeration to say that anything can happen. Power hitters could hit for a high batting average if the ball bounces their way. A pure speedster could win a league by hitting an unlikely pair of homers on the last day of the... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers! Batting average is just one of many statistics fantasy owners must consider, but contact rate can also be telling of all-around success at the plate. A sudden increase or decrease in contact rate could signal the beginning of an extended hot or cold streak, leading to important waiver wire choices or start/sit... Read More

Week 25 Waiver Wire - Outfield

Welcome back to the Outfield Waiver Wire, where we look at the best outfielders available in at least 50 percent of Yahoo leagues. Consider this column your recommendations for Week 25 outfield waiver wire pickups. We're nearing the finish line, but there are still plenty of guys who can help you floating around on the waiver wire.... Read More

Welcome back to the Cut List. Each weekend from now until the end of the season, I’ll be offering my thoughts on players who don’t deserve to keep drawing a nonexistent salary on your fake baseball teams. Now that we’re beyond most league’s trade deadlines, the only way to improve your team is via the... Read More

While it's easy enough to target stats like SB or HR if you need them from the waiver wire, counting stats are a little more challenging to predict. Runs scored in the past are a poor indicator of future performance in the category, especially if a player's real life lineup slot has changed since April.... Read More

We are nearing the home stretch, which means precious few days of baseball left! If you're still fighting tooth and nail for a playoff spot, here are some players that could warrant starting, sitting, adding, or dropping, depending on your league and team's circumstance. Scouting players who may be undervalued and re-assessing players who may... Read More

Welcome back, RotoBallers! As a reminder, in this piece we're looking for weekly streamers in head-to-head leagues, which means players who are 50% owned or less in Yahoo! leagues and who have seven games in the week. These players could provide great value off the waiver wire, particularly in head-to-head leagues, for week 25 of... Read More

The minor league shuttle continues to deliver players of interest into the fantasy pool. The Rangers are taking a look at Willie Calhoun, a 22-year old bat-first prospect received in the Yu Darvish swap. Meanwhile, the Pirates summoned 24-year old Tyler Glasnow after a dominant stint at Triple-A. He was awful in his previous stint... Read More

Hello everyone, and welcome to the second edition of RotoBaller’s new series, Breaking Down Rookie Playing Time in September. In this article series, I will break down several prospects who have been promoted at some point following the July 31 Trade Deadline, and what you all should make of them for fantasy leagues. Let's get to... Read More

If somebody with solid season numbers is available on waivers this time of year, you can almost assume that something is awry under the hood. Every team in your league has had to deal with injuries and poor performance at this point, plucking whoever they felt was the best fill-in at the time. How could... Read More
