New York Yankees Sign Andrew Miller

The New York Yankees and RP Andrew Miller have agreed to a 4 year $36 mil deal!  Does this signal the end of David Robertson, who is a free agent, as their closer?  Most likely.  But will the Yankees hand Miller the job just because of his large contract?  Or will Dellin Betances be the Yankees new closer?   Miller started last season as a member of the Boston Red Sox...

16 Players to Target in Fantasy Basketball

One nice thing about playing in a fantasy basketball points league, is that it is easy to see which player, overall, has been the most valuable.  Now obviously, each league has a unique scoring system, but for the most part, all rankings should look very similar.  If you play H2H, you are more concerned about category specific players, that best fit your teams needs. Below are...

Updated Fantasy Football QB Rankings

Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers were the best value picks at the QB position this fantasy football season.  In an 8 team 2 QB league, on average, they were the last 2 QBs selected as a starter.  Big Ben's stats are slightly inflated by back-to-back 6 TD performances, but he completed at least 20 passes in every start this season and gained 300+ yards 6 times.  Rivers threw...

Updated Fantasy Football RB Rankings

Had it not been for 5 lost fumbles, DeMarco Murray would be the best fantasy football RB this season. His 1427 rushing yards and 8 touchdowns would have been enough to surpass Matt Forte's 78 receptions and 8 TDs.   So far this season, just 7 backs have seen 200 carries and one of them is Andre Ellington who has done very little with all of those touches.  He has even added...
