Over the last two seasons, wide receivers like Sammy Watkins, Mike Evans, Odell Beckham Jr., Kelvin Benjamin, Amari Cooper and Stefon Diggs have all made big fantasy impacts in their rookie seasons. This year’s draft class should continue that trend. Whether it’s the result of a perfect fit or an overwhelming bundle of talent, several... Read More

Michael Fulmer and Sean Manaea were among two of the first prospects to be called up this year, and the results so far  have been less than impressive. Their ERAs sit above six, and holes have been identified. Every young pitcher will experience adjustment periods, and Fulmer and Manaea may be worth holding on to.... Read More

The Winter Meetings and all the action before it has been so fun to follow. How stacked is Arizona?! A rotation of Zack Greinke, Shelby Miller, Patrick Corbin, and Archie Bradley! That sounds lethal. I will say though that two trades stuck out in my mind as extreme overkill to get a solid player and that... Read More

I was very ecstatic to hear that Barry Zito and Tim Hudson would oppose each other in their final career starts. It is just a nice story: former teammates who both started their careers in Oakland would face off against one another for one last hurrah. I hope they both pitch well. It would be... Read More

This is quite the pickle that the Mets have found themselves in regarding Matt Harvey. They don’t want to push him past that 180 IP mark a season following Tommy John surgery, but they also need him in the rotation in the postseason to help them go all the way. If they are wise, they... Read More

Trea Turner was actually called up by the Nationals, and it happened before rosters expanded. Turner may not see starting time right away, but it may only be a little bit longer before a desperate Nationals squad plugs Turner into the shortstop spot to replace the underperforming Ian Desmond. With his job on the line, Matt Williams could... Read More

UPDATE: I had mistakenly reported that Nomar Mazara had been called up to the big leagues. He in fact has been promoted to AAA, but won't be joining the big-league club at this time. If and when he does get the call in September, Mazara may be given quite a lot of playing time, especially for... Read More

Jose Peraza was recently called up by the Los Angeles Dodgers. He should be owned in all leagues because of his speed and shortstop eligibility. Peraza will likely lose playing time when Howie Kendrick returns from his injury, but it appears Kendrick will be out for awhile. To be clear, this list is not the... Read More

As if the trade deadline weren’t intriguing enough, there have been plenty of prospects to receive the call up shortly thereafter. Tyler Duffey will be making a spot start for the Twins, Daniel Norris recently dominated the Orioles with his new club (the Tigers), and Jon Gray was recently promoted as well. The most interesting... Read More

As many of you know by now, I am a die-hard Reds fan. So when Johnny Cueto was traded to the Kansas City Royals, I was sad to see him leave, but was glad to see the Reds front office actually make a trade. A lot of Reds fans have complained about the return for... Read More

That trade between the Atlanta Braves and the Arizona Diamondbacks is very odd to me. In case you missed it, The DBacks traded an injured and old Bronson Arroya and 19 year-old pitching prospect Touki Toussaint for utility man Phil Gosselin. That Diamondbacks must have seen something that most people don’t in Gosselin. Or maybe they... Read More

Wow. What a week for prospects. To start things off, Carlos Correa got called up and performed well in his first start ever against Chris Sale. Then it was announced that Byron Buxton, surprisingly, would be called up. Then it was Francisco Lindor getting called up, just a few hours after the Buxton announcement. If you have been...

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leauges OWNED IN: 2% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Vincent Velasquez was very solid in his Major League debut on Wednesday. He hurled 5 innings of shutout ball, walking 4, giving up 3 hits, and fanning 5. He managed this with only 90 pitches. It wasn't an incredibly efficient outing, and... Read More

Here at RotoBaller, we have discussed Carlos Correa at length over the past few days and weeks, and the MLB top prospect was finally promoted to the Astros on Sunday. After going 1-for-4 with an RBI in his major league debut, he followed that up by going 2-for-4 with a home run, stolen base, one run scored and... Read More

I feel like I need to clarify a name that can be found later on this list, each week that I do this Fantasy Prospects Power Rankings series. That would be Jameson Taillon. Taillon has yet to throw a pitch at any professional level since early 2014 while recovering from Tommy John surgery. Prior to... Read More

Prospects are an essential part of any keeper or dynasty league. Keep in mind - they are also a valuable commodity in re-draft leagues if you have a keen awareness of which prospect's value is on the rise and can make an immediate fantasy impact once he gets the call. This week's edition of the... Read More

You know the drill by now. Each week we will check out three players, and break them down in sabermetric detail to determine if they are "Champs" or "Chumps". We help you cut through the fog to understand what's really going on with a player and whether or not their performances are sustainable (if they're... Read More

The Astros and the Cubs are eerily similar right now. Both are looking like they are on the verge of a potential postseason run for the first time in several years. They are loaded with young talent, both especially on offense, with just enough pitching to get them through games. The Astros have more pitching... Read More

I have been very neutral in both of the Bryce Harper debates that have gone on between this season and last season. Last season, people were saying that he was overrated and will never be a great hitter. I knew that was too harsh on him considering his youth and still blossoming career (he is younger... Read More

This past week saw several top prospects get the call up to the Majors. Carlos Rodon, the number one prospect in the Chicago White Sox system, and Kris Bryant, the number one prospect in the Chicago Cubs system (and by many the number one prospect in baseball) each were called up to their respective big...

The tip off of the 2014-15 NBA regular season is just around the corner, but we are nearly four months removed from this past summer's NBA draft. In case you are in need of a refresher, the following are some NBA rookies to keep in mind heading into your fantasy basketball drafts, and some to... Read More

Everyone knows that the NFL is becoming more of a pass-friendly league with every season.  Quarterbacks rack up stats that would have seemed insane just ten years ago, but the true bell cow running back is quickly becoming a dying breed.  This scarcity, of course, means that landing a stud RB on your roster puts...

We had previously looked at the impact coaching changes around the NFL might have on fantasy football, here and here.  Now that the 2014 NFL draft has concluded, let's take a look at some of the NFL rookie sleepers for 2014 fantasy football who are in the best situations to succeed this year.   2014 Fantasy...

  Recent Call-Ups It’s a busy time for prospects, as many exciting young players are near ready for a Major League call-up in mid-June or so. In the meantime, a few guys have received a taste over the past week: Jimmy Nelson, RHP, MIL The fact that Jimmy Nelson is ranked by some as the... Read More

With so many seasoned veterans entrenched in the Phillies starting lineup there will be limited opportunities for players to make the jump from the farm system to fantasy relevance in 2014.  With an aging lineup comes the risk of injury or a trade deadline move that opens the door for an up and coming player to contribute to...
