Our 10 Best Hitter Projections of 2014

I’m not a huge fan of the fantasy sports life cycle: October-March: Make a billion claims and projections about what will happen April-September: Watch that stuff happen or not happen (mostly not) Repeat Where’s the part where we fess up to the stuff we botched from October-March? More importantly, where’s the part where we get to brag! To an extent we do the fessing/bragging...

Royals Advance With Walk-Off in Extras

Last night, the American League Wildcard Game featured the Oakland Athletics and the Kansas City Royals.  KC hadn't been to the playoffs in 29 years, and the town was still buzzing over the Chiefs beat down of Tom Brady and the Patriots the night before, across the parking lot, at Arrowhead Stadium on Monday Night Football.  Kauffman Stadium with 106.9% filled and 40,502 fans...

2014 Catcher Recap: The Flop Five

The 2014 fantasy baseball season has ended. I’m not one for superlatives or useless “Who was this season’s fantasy MVP?!” stuff because — let’s be honest — that doesn’t help you moving forward. But end-of-season recaps are a necessity as they bring a sense of closure and tie up any remaining loose ends, so over the next week or two we’ll recap what we saw from each...

What Happened to Wilin Rosario?

After a breakout 2013 season in which Wilin Rosario hit .292 with 21 home runs, fantasy owners had high hopes entering the 2014 season. Unfortunately, he struggled for the first two months of the season before ultimately finding his way the last four months of the season. During the first two months of the year he had a .225/.261/.395 slash line with a .240 BABIP. In the last four...

RCL Update – Colicky Fuddruckers

It's official. The 2014 Razzball Grand Champion has been crowned. How close was it, you ask with those child-like eyes. Great question. The final tally on points was 115.93 to 115.85. A difference of... Drum roll please... Well, I'm not good in math, but that's pretty damn close. If Rudy were as bad in math as me, we'd just round those both to 116 and have a co...

Baseball's Best Leadoff Hitters

Having a reliable leadoff hitter is important once a game. But these guys also get the most opportunities at the plate so you better make sure that guy can hit in any situation as well as being a spark plug in the 1st inning. Every team has a different approach with their leadoff hitter, some managers just slot their fastest player at the top of their lineup while other managers...

Our 10 Worst Hitter Projections of 2014

One of my favorite parts of the year is the day after the season ends when the final numbers roll in and we can officially grade our projections. While most of them are close-but-not-perfect, there are always a handful we nail and a whole bunch we completely miss on. This week it’s these bests and worsts that I’ll be sharing with you, and we’ll begin this retrospective with...

End of Season Fantasy Baseball First Base Rankings

Detroit Tigers teammates Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez could both arguably be the MVP of the American League.  Martinez was the most valuable fantasy baseball player, with an ADP of around 140 (11th round in 12 team leagues).  Jose Abreu powered his way to the American League Rookie of the Year award with 36 home runs and 107 RBI, not to mention his .317 BA.  Anthony ...

End of Season Fantasy Baseball Third Base Rankings

Miguel Cabrera took 31 ABs while playing 3B for the Tigers this season.  Rendon moved to third permantly, after Ryan Zimmerman's annual injury and his eventual shift to LF.  Matt Carpenter conintued to be a table setter atop the Cardinals lineup, and finds himself in the top 5 3B, after shifting over from 2B.  We were worried that his lack of power would hurt his value...

End of Season Fantasy Baseball Second Base Rankings

Anthony Rendon was supposed to be the Nationals 2B this season, but injuries to Ryan Zimmerman chanaged things.  Ian Kinsler is the real 2B MVP.  When the Tigers trade Prince Fielder for him this offseason, we thought the Rangers won that deal....until Fielder's neck caused him to miss the rest of the season.Jose Altuve won the American League batting title, and hit 47...

End of Season Fantasy Baseball Catcher Rankings

Jonathan Lucroy was the real Catcher MVP this season.  Carlos Santana played more 1B, than 3B, which is the position he was supposed to shift too at the start of the season.  His position changed opened up playing time for Yan Gomes who hit 21 home runs and hit .278 to finish 4th* among catchers. Brian McCann hit 23 home runs as a member of the Yankees, but his .286 OBP was...

End of Season Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitcher Rankings

Johnny Cueto was one of three National League pitchers to win 20 games.  The other two were Clayton Kershaw (21) and Adam Wainwright (20).  Corey Kluber, Max Scherzer, Madison Bumgarner and Jered Weaver were the only other pitchers to win 18 games.  Cueto had an unbelievable season, and had it not been for Kershaw winning 21 of his 27 starts, he would be the NL Cy Young...

Catch of the Year Candidate: Steven Souza, Jr.

Steven Souza, Jr., who entered the ninth-inning as a defensive replacement for left-fielder Ryan Zimmerman, made this incredible diving catch to preserve Jordan Zimmermann’s no-hitter: Besides playing the hero on the final out of the Nationals’ regular season, Souza has also been named the organization’s Minor League Player of the Year. Souza triple slashed .350/.432/.590...

6 Months Of Pitching And 4.5 Months Of Hitting Now Complete

Around six months ago, your mother left us in the middle of the night with nothing but each other and our drafted fantasy teams. I tried to make you French toast as you stood on a stool and watched, but we got egg shell in the batter and you cried about drafting Brad Miller. I was trying to do work one night, looking for a middle infield replacement as you played with your toy...

DraftKings – Oh Waiter, There’s a Haren My Lineup

Dan Haren ($8,500) stands to be one of the better values on DraftKings today against a Rockies team that really struggles away from Colorado. Haren has been solid of late outside of a tough recent outing against the same Rockies at Coors (5 ER). The rematch in Los Angeles today should go much more smoothly, however. In his three other September starts, Haren allowed only two earned...

Rusney to Rumble

Cuban sensation Rusney Castillo did his part to ensure he'll be over valued in fantasy leagues next year going 2-for-3 with a home run and a stolen base last night versus the Yankees. He's now 4-for-7 with two homers, four RBI and a steal starting in center field in the past two games. I guess it's pretty clear from his bat that's where he's most comfortable...

Inciarte, The Buy Year Ender

Today, it's the final Buy of the year. Next week, we'll be doing one last roundup on Monday and recaps the rest of the month until I start on 2015 rookies that could make an impact. In other words, where the hell did the summer go? And does this mean I have to go back to spending time with Cougs? To paraphrase the Broadway musical Rent (or maybe it was Abe Lincoln), eight...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, Sep 26

At long last, we have reached the end. This is the 112th Daily DraftKings/DraftStreet Picks article we’ve run this season. It’s been a hell of a ride for me with consistent bankroll growth early in the year and at the end with a late-summer swoon mixed in. I won the DraftStreet $10,000 Guaranteed contest back in June or July, which pretty much cemented a season in the black,...
