Below is a podcast with me discussing daily fantasy strategy for the day. It’s only about ten minutes long. I discuss the starting pitchers with the highest projected point totals and the ones who are the best value for their price. I also discuss which teams are the best to
What if everyone’s wrong? First, let’s get the disclaimers out of the way. When you’re evaluating a player’s fantasy value, context always matters. There is rarely a general statement that is fact for all league shapes and sizes. Alright, I’ll give you the canned answers that apply here and therefore
As we continue on with the dumper diver series, it sometimes pays to look back at what we are trying to do. So, as we move to third basemen this week, we should note the ground rules of our little endeavor. First, we are only looking at players that are
In the Week 7 edition of fantasy baseball 3×3, we’re sticking with Carlos Santana, giving Brandon McCarthy a follow, and trying to find a new home for Colby Rasmus. There are plenty of waiver wire columns out there that provide an exhaustive list of the most added players in fantasy

One of the most fascinating players in the game of baseball today, and one that can spark one of those five beer deep bar debates that we all love to have, I give you Troy Tulowitzki of the Colorado Rockies. The shortstop, who will turn 30 this year, finds himself
We’re obsessed with up the middle the talent. Having bonafide top tier fantasy up the middle is the dream. It’s the holy grail. Mike Trout is fantastic, but if you could guarantee owners that Troy Tulowitzki would play 140+ games, he might be drafted ahead of Trout or Miguel Cabrera
Garrett Richards is an easy sell high candidate for those who currently own him. His past history of struggles and lack of strikeouts despite his incredible velocity screams that this year should be an aberration and many will be looking to dump him and essentially take their profits.
Timing is everything. If this piece was published on May 5th and it recommended buying low on Prince Fielder, you may have received some resistance from those who owned him in your fantasy baseball leagues. On May 4th, Fielder had three hits, two walks, two doubles, and two RBI.
I had an interesting twitter exchange with another fantasy writer this week and it got me to thinking. He assumed that I was a fantasy writer first and a sabermetrician second. Actually, the reverse is quite true. It’s difficult sometimes to separate the two and when we fail, we usually
