2015 Fantasy Dynasty Second Base Rankings

Second base is one of the least exciting positions on the diamond right now for fantasy players. If you don’t own one of the top two guys at the position, then you own a player who fits one of two molds: High upside and consistency issues, or worse, Someone boring with very little upside The good news is that if you’re in a dynasty league, you never have to wait to long for the...

Playing for Keeps: Wil Myers

The Royals are in the World Series, and it's going to be mentioned at some point that the organization moved a big prospect in Wil Myers to acquire two of the pieces that brought them so much success this year. Last season, it looked like the Rays were going to be the ones that ran away with the trade. Myers won Rookie of the Year. He hit .293/.354/.478 with 13 homers and drove...

Early 2015 Fantasy Second Base Rankings

Continuing with our early 2015 positional rankings, we move on to second base. As I explained before revealing my previous early 2015 rankings, what you can expect to find in this series is rankings, key positional eligibility changes, and key free agents. However, if you are looking for more of a “state of the position,” you should check out our awesome positional recap series...

2015 Fantasy Dynasty First Base Rankings

First Base is a deep position as usual but unlike a lot of the positions we will cover over this series there are not many of great prospects on the horizon.  This is a premium power position on the diamond and one you cannot take a risk on if you are going to build a successful fantasy team. In many ways I look at this position as the cornerstone of my dynasty league teams because...

The '14 Orioles Are Not The '04 Red Sox

In 2004, the Boston Red Sox won their first World Series title since 1918, 86 years earlier. Stacked with a roster that featured Pedro Martinez, Curt Schilling, Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz and Johnny Damon, Boston did the unthinkable, coming back from down 3-0 to the New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series.

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Disappointments — Second Basemen

Source: Ed Zurga/Getty Images North America It’s certainly interesting looking at fantasy baseball through the prism of disappointments. Obviously there are disappointments at every position, but it is also interesting that some positions disappoint as a whole. Nowhere is that more true than second base (and third base which we will see next). While every position has its Jose...

2015 Fantasy Dynasty Catcher Rankings

Catcher is without a doubt one of the most difficult positions to plan for in a dynasty league since prospects at the position take so long to develop. The position itself requires so much game planning with the pitching staff that the offense sometimes doesn’t show up until the player’s mid-20s (e.g., Devin Mesoraco). You’ll see this reflected in my rankings as I’m much...

Early 2015 Fantasy Catcher Rankings

Now that 2014 has come to an end (fantasy wise) it’s time to start thinking about 2015, and what better place is there to start than with some autumn rankings. I’m not going to go into great depth about positional narratives, nor will you find broad positional themes here. What you will find is the meat and potatoes, which includes rankings, key positional eligibility changes...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Josh Donaldson, Year End Review

Source: Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images North America After each season ends, I look forward to looking back at divisive players to see how they fared. I did so with Carlos Gomez a couple of weeks ago. Spoiler: the people who believed in him were right, and he looks like a perennial top 15 talent for the time being. Josh Donaldson was another player that seemed to pit fantasy players...

2014 Fantasy Baseball Rankings Revisited: Jean Segura and Carlos Gomez Discussed

Major League Baseball’s 2014 regular season is in the books, so it’s time to look back towards Spring Training and reflect upon my preseason fantasy baseball rankings. Many players fell off due to season-ending injuries at some point during the season, unfortunately, but the six below I simply “hit” or “missed” in my initial go-around. Let’s hop to it: Whiffed: Jean...

2014 Fantasy Baseball Recap From the Champ

The 2014 We Talk Fantasy Sports Fantasy Baseball League featured extreme competitiveness amongst managers, as most WTFS Fantasy Leagues that I’ve been involved with usually do. What was strange in this particular league, was that there were ZERO trades completed. Two teams were at the forefront for the majority of the season, while the other 10 competed week in and week out for...

How the Houston Astros Astros Cost Jon a Championship

Just when you think you have the matchup locked up, things turn for the worse. You want to tell someone, but who? No one cares, especially the guys in your league.”Quit whining, loser.” We care. We can’t offer much — not even a pat on the back or an empathetic nod, but we can give you a voice. This submission came from Jon. It’s short and painful but ends on a hopeful note...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Disappointments — First Basemen

The yin and yang of sports is about as powerful as any force there is. For the most part. There are few out of nowhere surprises at first base. Most of the players picked among the top twelve were highly thought of before the season. On the flip side, the players labeled as disappointments were not only picked among the top twelve first basemen but were also probably picked in the...
