Buy/Sell, Week 14: Tomas’ Impressive Performance

Yasmany Tomas: Buy Yasmany Tomas was a highly debated player entering the season for several reasons but largely because of his defense, or rather lack thereof. This led many to call Tomas a bust before he ever swung a bat in the majors. A slow start in power production did nothing to stop those whispers. While the power hasn’t been there to a degree to completely quiet the doubters...

Fantasy Roundup: Scouting Drew Hutchison

Entering the preseason I thought Drew Hutchison would be a sneaky play for 200-plus strikeouts. That may not sound like a lot, but only 13 pitchers accomplished that feat last year. At the time I wrote that piece I didn’t think I was going out on a limb with that prediction because he finished 20th among qualified starting pitchers in strikeout rate (23.4%). A big reason for the...

Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, Jul 9

Thursday’s short day brings us a quartet of aces led by King Felix Hernandez as well as four pitchers that rate below 80, making the day’s short slate one of the most spread out of the season. In his first start back from Tommy John, Jose Fernandez looked pretty good. While he allowed 3 ER in 6 IP, he also fanned six with no walks and a 52.6 GB% against San Francisco. Impeccable...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, Jul 8

Yesterday I went with a rare non-stack and my approach didn’t pan out. Corey Kluber was 28.1% owned and delivered 28.80 points, but Brett Anderson was only so-so with the same ownership rate, and my hodge-podge offense failed to muster any might. I loved the matchup for Brian Dozier against Kevin Gausman yet he failed to get a hit, and my late substitutions of Mookie Betts and...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Tuesday, Jul 7

Carlos Carrasco was exactly 50% owned in yesterday’s GPP but flopped to the tune of just 2.40 points. Combined with a pair of zeros from Buster Posey and Nelson Cruz, the Official Lineup failed to cash despite home runs from Yasmani Grandal, Manny Machado, and J.D. Martinez. Chris Heston didn’t exactly toss a no-hitter this time out against the Mets, but 7.1 shutout IP was pretty...

Monday Mailbag: Will O’Hearn Power Hosmer Out of 1B in KC?

The Dynasty Desk brings you a special Tuesday edition of the Monday Mailbag. As always, send your dynasty-related questions to Lance Rinker and get your answer on next week’s edition of the post! I’m a lil worried about Ryan O’Hearn. I mean I’ll likely be playing for the Yanks in 2017 any way, but is this dude a threat to me being traded? I’d really love to win some games...

Daily SP Rankings: Wednesday, Jul 8

Wednesday’s slate of starters is Clayton Kershaw and then the rest, and as is customary this time of the season with teams drifting out of contention and injuries piling up, we have a lot of low-quality fill-ins. The rankings have liked CC Sabathia more than I do because Steamer has been bullish on a rebound, but Steamer has his projected ROS ERA up to 3.92, and that’s putting...

Daily SP Rankings: Tuesday, Jul 7

Tuesday’s slate of starters goes 34 deep with double-headers in the STL@CHC and TB@KC games. Despite the added volume, the quality of starters available is surprisingly low. Only seven rate average or better! Taijuan Walker has been on an impressive roll and is now set to face a right-heavy Tigers team with a red-hot J.D. Martinez but without Miguel Cabrera. You’ve gotta start...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, Jul 6

On Thursday I said the following about Matt Boyd’s start against the Red Sox: Boyd is probably the riskiest pitcher on the day. If the fly balls don’t go his way, he could get lit up for 7 ER in 3 IP…Let me state this explicitly: In no way do I trust Boyd to give me a good outing. However, for $4,400 the upside is incredible if the batted balls go his way, and with this lineup...

Fantasy Roundup: Buyer Beware on Returning SP

Patrick Corbin and Ervin Santana both made their debuts this weekend. Corbin made his debut on Saturday, and it certainly could have gone worse. He threw 76 pitches on the day, 56 of which were for strikes. Given that control and command often elude pitchers returning from Tommy John, it was notable that Corbin didn’t walk a batter. Still, there was obvious rust, which should...

Daily SP Rankings: Weekend, Jul 4-6

As of this writing, all starters are accounted for heading in the July 4 weekend with no TBD. Happy 4th! Saturday is a day of aces, plus the return of Patrick Corbin! Corbin will take on the Rockies at home. I haven’t read anything about a pitch count (comment below if you’ve heard otherwise) and he’s made four rehab starts at the minor league level already. Steven Matz gets...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Thursday, Jul 2

  Tuesday’s Official Lineup was so-so, knocking on the door of the top 25% in the GPP in which I entered it, but as we all know that’s not quite enough to make the money. Jordan Zimmermann was great and surprisingly underowned, Lance Lynn was decent, though not fully worth the money, and two-fifths of my Orioles stack combined for 3 HR, but Derek Norris did nothing against Mike...

Fantasy Roundup: Mike Montgomery and Taijuan Walker

There’s a lot of buzz about how well two members of the Mariners rotation have pitched. Those pitchers are Taijuan Walker and Mike Montgomery. Of the two I believe one of the breakouts has a shot at being legitimate and other looks like a fluke. Mike Montgomery In Montgomery’s last two starts he’s been fantastic – against the Royals and Padres, respectively, with two complete...
