Daily SP Rankings: Tuesday, Jul 29

Stephen Strasburg, Cole Hamels, and James Shields tower above the rest of Tuesday’s starters with their respective starts against the Marlins, Mets, and Twins. They’re not the day’s only reliable options as a deep day of pitching gives fantasy owners a lot of security (well, as much as you can have I guess). Jorge De La Rosa checks in at 4th with a start against the Cubs that...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, Jul 28

Put bluntly, Friday wasn’t a great start to the weekend. My faith in Dallas Keuchel (and our Daily SP Rankings‘ faith) was justified as he pitched great against the Marlins, but Alex Wood flamed out versus the Padres and the Astros were stifled by Brad Hand (seriously?). It happens. We live, learn, and move on. On a bright side, I’m definitely beginning to feel more comfortable...

Fantasy Rundown: Assessing Lee’s Value

In a post from early last week, before Cliff Lee had made his first of two long awaited, yet ultimately disappointing, starts, I said he’d be just fine the rest of the way. In fact, I pegged him as a top 15 pitcher with top 10 upside. Well, 10.2 innings, 21 hits, 9 ER, 2 HR, 3 BB, and 7 K later, I’m not quite as optimistic. Those high hit totals have been commonplace against...

Peavy On The Presidio

You know how when you move out of a place, you throw out a majority of your stuff, but a few things you just slide into the cubbyhole behind the washer/dryer? Maybe nothing significant. Just something to leave your mark, like an old pair of underwear. Then in a few years, maybe ten, you go back to your old place, knock on the door and ask to see what they've done with the...

Vikings Extend Breakout CantidateTight End Kyle Rudolph

The Minnesota Vikings agreed on a contract extension with Kyle Rudolph worth $36.5 million dollars over the next five seasons keeping him in Viking purple through the 2019 season. Rudolph has posted solid numbers but has been a part of that middling level of fantasy TE that includes nearly a dozen players that all meld together. This extension is intriguing as new offensive coordinator...

Ray Rice, The Sandlot, and Misogyny

Final Notes from Summer League

Don’t Be Smoove Adreian Payne was a standout at Michigan State during his four year tenure. A 6’10’’ beast that can battle down low or take a step back jumper was a constant threat for other defenses. He was drafted 15th overall by the Hawks to bring a stretch four off the bench and take […]

Hello Razzballers! Happy Sunday before the non-waiver trade deadline. *Pops party popper* Today I bring you a Creeper that feels more like a buy, but because Josh Rutledge is only 7.4% owned, he qualifies for my purposes.
