The Call Up - Trevor Story

Embed from Getty Images In the fifth round of this year’s inaugural minor league draft, following a trade with Beach Bum, I took Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story. He was my primary target at the time of the trade for reasons I’ll get to, but I thought I could trade down, add a higher pick later, and still get my guy. Luckily, I did. Anyway, he’s an interesting prospect...

Aces Are Wild to Begin MLB Season

Embed from Getty Images Twelve starts by some of the top pitchers in the MLB and the earliest drafted in Fantasy Baseball prove that you have to be patient early in the season.  Three of these guys allowed mutliple home runs, one had a quality start and did not get the win and another did not pitch a quality start and got a W.  Jacob deGrom and Gerrit Cole are still yet to pitch...

NBA DFS Value Plays for 4/2/16

Hope everybody who reads this is having a great DFS week. I may have taken a couple days off from blogging but I played each day this week and have had one of my best weeks since near the end of last season.

NBA DFS Fanduel Value Plays for 3/31/16

Wednesday night saw some huge million dollar tournaments on what was a seemingly awful NBA DFS slate. I saw a lot of people get thrown off by some traps which kept cash lines low. I knew something was fishy when I saw my cash lineup which only did modestly okay in GPP actually placed me 1st in my double up. There was little love for the guys I thought were safe and high ownership...

NBA FanDuel DFS Value Plays for Tuesday 3/29/16

Today was one of my favorite days in NBA DFS this year. I spent a lot of time researching my plays(both the value and the mid-high level) and it really paid off. I managed to get back about 6x what I put in to about 120 GPP entries. It's really nice when things actually go more or less how you expect them to with a few fun surprises as well. Almost every single value play I wrote...

Where Is The Love For Jaromir Jagr?

Through 72 games this year, Jagr...

NBA DFS Value Plays for Easter Sunday 3/27/16

Happy Easter to everybody. Yesterday was very hit or miss for me in NBA DFS. I made around 200 entries(which Fanduel did their best to screw up, but that's another story) and managed to break a little above even mostly due to coming in 56th/86705 in the Shot with one entry at 353.60 that made up for a lot of misses I had. Also helps that in addition to my value plays I had tons...

Swinging a Hot Stick in April

Embed from Getty Images There is nothing better than drafting a player who gets off to a hot start, like Justin Upton hitting 12 home runs in April of 2013.  However, the MLB season is a marathon, not a sprint, and it's important to remember that sometimes you need to know when sell a player at peak value.  But that is different discussion for another day.  Let's focus in on...

NBA DFS FanDuel Value Plays

Embed from Getty Images Yesterday was a somewhat bizarre day in DFS on Thursday where Luke Babbitt put up a huge dud at around 60% GPP and 80% cash ownership and Alexis Ajinça was the value of the day at around 1% ownership. Today is shaping up to be another weird day with crazy value all over the place. While everything I say here is pure conjecture, the one thing I'm fairly...

March Madness DFS DraftKings Sweet 16 - Thursday

Cleveland Browns Sign QB Robert Griffin III
