Oakland Raiders Fantasy Football Outlook

2013 was another disgraceful season for the Oakland Raiders.  They tried Matt Flynn, Terrelle Pryor and Matt McGloin at QB, only to trade for Matt Schaub this offseason and draft Derek Carr, who has been named the Week 1 starter.  Rashad Jennings led the team in rushing with 733 yards and 6 TDs and is now a member of the New York Football Giants, so they went out and signed...

Kansas City Chiefs Fantasy Football Outlook

The Kansas City Chiefs shocked the NFL world in 2013 starting the season 9-0 before losing 5 of the final 7 games of the season and eventually the heartbreaking loss in the AFC Wildcard game to the Indianapolis Colts. Jamaal Charles totaled 19 touchdowns, including 7 receiving TDs, doubling his career total over his first 65 games. Alex Smith turned his career around in KC under...

Is There Hope for Cleveland’s Trevor Bauer?

Not long ago (2011 to be exact) Trevor Bauer was a high-powered pitching prospect in the Arizona system full of promise and largely devoid of critics. In May 2012, Fangraphs wrote, “One would assume that, with four quality pitches and the ability to throw them from nearly identical release points, Bauer’s nearly a finished product.” Two years later, at the start of the 2014...

Waiver Wired, Week One: Carson Palmer and the Preseason Pickups

As we open the season, all of our NFL teams have the same goal— to play in Super Bowl XLIX in Glendale, Arizona on February 1. Our fantasy teams have the same goal— to play in our respective league’s Super Bowl whatever week (usually 16) that it falls on. For some of you, getting there will be difficult if not impossible. Others will find the road to be easy, and cruise through...

One Man’s Trash: The Summer of Jorge

Sorry, I ran out of "solar energy" puns and "Cirque du Soler" was already taken by Keith Law, so I went with Seinfeld. As I write this, I am stripped to the waist eating a block of cheese the size of a car battery. [Jay's Note: That's hot.] We need to mention Jorge Soler (+91%) one more time though. His 91% increase in ownership was by far the highest...

Tampa Bay backup running back Mike James (shoulder) is practicing and probable for Sunday's game against Carolina.Fantasy Spin:Bobby Rainey won the battle over James for the backup role over to Doug Martin. Neither player will be worth a fantasy selection, unless something happens to Martin.

Daily DraftKings Picks: Tuesday, Sep 2

Yesterday’s team scored 109.35 points and finished 920th-of-2,300 in the Daily Moonshot. It was about as average as they come, but it likely would have been better had I been able to adjust my lineup later in the day (see: Matt Duffy). My pitchers did exactly what I expected, Buster Posey continued his hot ways, Hunter Pence had a big game, and Anthony Rendon pitched in 20.00 points...

DraftKings – To Kershaw or Not to Kershaw

We’re starting to run out of ways to superlative Clayton Kershaw.  I think today’s DraftKings salary may be the best way.  The asking price is $14,900.  For some reason, I felt that the period was more emphatic than an exclamatory dot-line vertical stack there.  Perhaps the punctuation is in line with the excitement level of an 8 IP, 9 K W from the Kersh.  Yawnstipating...

Daily SP Rankings: Wednesday, Sep 3

Wednesday gives us a disappointing slate of starters with just 11 pitchers rating league average or better (plus another right there at 99.9) and only two big name fantasy starters (the guys at the top). Last time out against the Nationals, Felix Hernandez was blasted for four home runs. Harold Reynolds of MLB Tonight thinks Hernandez has some sort of injury. I don’t like speculating...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Breakout Players — Left Fielders

Source: Ed Zurga/Getty Images North America When we get to the outfield, we get to the meat of most people’s fantasy teams. As I’ve said before, 100 runs created has been the standard for excellence in the past, and that is certainly true with the development of better pitching over the past few years. Still, there have been some incredibly good left fielders in the game this...

Bet the Mortgage: Week 1, 2014 NFL Best Bets

Tony and I have been pretending we know how to beat pointspreads for several seasons now, both online and in Vegas. Last year we shook it up a bit. Each of us started the season with a hypothetical, mythical $10,000. We then assigned money values to our bets and calculated our winnings and losings throughout the season. We pick three games against the number – either the over/under...
