SAGNOF Special: Part Time Speed

Rajai Davis is, once again, a SAGNOF-ian legend.  Again, again, again, was exactly what he did on Saturday when the 34-year-old outfielder stole 3 bases.  This year he might just be the best fantasy player of all those playing only part time (the other player fighting for this honor, in my opinion, is Alex Guerrero).  He has 6 stolen bases despite starting in only 9 of 18 games...

DraftKings: Going Full Nelson On Your Opponents

Greetings one and all...oh who am I kidding. Greetings the one that is all. Thanks for reading! So, in full truthiness, I went and googled 'Full Nelson'. I always gotta check myself before I wreck myself. I had always heard the term with regards to wrestling. Well, not real wrestling. The kind where the big steroid guys shouted the loud, funny words before taking a chair up...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Plate Discipline — Center Field

View image | gettyimages.com Center field is the premier position in baseball history. There are a few notable exceptions, but when you look at the best of the best they are usually center fielders. Willie Mays, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, and Ty Cobb are obviously sure fire Hall of Famers. Unfortunately, today’s game doesn’t have the same star power in center. In fact, there...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Replacements for Adam Wainwright

View image | gettyimages.com Unless you’ve managed to spend the last few days away from Twitter, you probably already know that Adam Wainwright is likely out for the season. Before the injury, Steamer and ZiPS had him pegged for 175 and 186 innings, respectively, while racking up double digit wins. Waino has pitched at least 198 innings since the 2009 season and is a...

Fantasy Baseball - Buy or Sell

View image | gettyimages.com Mark Teixeira is off to a hot start, which is something new.  He crushed two home runs off of Jacob deGrom in the Subway Series, and then one off of Matt Harvey the following night.  With 8 home runs and 18 RBI, it's hard to ignore Tex anymore.  But that .242 average is here to stay.  In 7 seasons (including 2015) with the Yankees, Texeira...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Week Four Two-Start Pitchers

View image | gettyimages.com Fantasy pools are underway and owners are gearing up for a long summer of ups and downs. A fantasy owner’s best friend is the waiver wire—where finding value can make the difference between a great week and a very disappointing week. Most pitchers see the mound once a week, but if you want to maximize the number of starts per week, it’s important...

Fantasy Rundown: Paredes Putting on a Show

With all due respect to Mark Teixeira’s recent homer binge, Anthony Rizzo’s sudden speed, and Kris Bryant’s arrival, I’m declaring Jimmy Paredes the MLB headline of the last week. Once a fairly well-regarded prospect who played a big part in Lance Berkman leaving Houston, Paredes’ progress had seemed to stall at the AAA level. In each season from 2011-2014, Paredes had...

Daily SP Rankings: Tuesday, Apr 28

We’re already into Week 4 of the MLB season, which means our small sample sizes are starting to grow and excitement over our teams’ hot starts (most of my leagues) or fears over our teams’ unexpectedly performances (one of my leagues) are starting to settle in. Chill out, we’re only three weeks into the year. Tyson Ross has gotten off to a somewhat slow start, but he...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, Apr 28

When last we spoke, I was recommending Shane Greene at home against the Indians, plus a Toronto Blue Jays stack. Greene was terrible, losing 11.6 points, and none of the Jays really stood out. If you compare the lineup below to Friday’s post, you’ll notice it’s a little different as I made a last-minute swap, opting for Kevin Pillar batting fifth or sixth over Collin Cowgill...

A Hunter’s Quest For Fire, and the Top 100 Hitters, Week 4

Never once did I think I would be writing about a creeper older than I am, and yet here I am, talking about Torii Hunter. Being the ageless wonder (or is it the wonder of agelessness, I'm not really sure), he still suits up every day and goes out and plays. I was racking my brain for some kind of analogy for the creeper and I found my inspiration from the Paleolithic 80's flick Quest...

DraftKings: If K’s Are King Then This Is Carrasco’s Kingdom

The title says it all gents and 4 ladies; on DraftKings K's are king. If you're rolling out starters looking to win $ on ratios alone then you ain't winning at all. Well maybe you're winning head to head's against your Uncle Ruprecht, but he eats with a cork on his fork and has a patch on his eye. Therein lies today's lesson, target the high K guys vs. the high K lineups. It just...
