The most common question at this point is why we are reading about fielding on a fantasy baseball site. Simply put, fielding interacts with pitching more than we can comment. This makes perfect sense. Out of 27 outs, 10 of them might come via strikeout. So, fielders are responsible for
There are a number of different elements to fantasy baseball and fielding seems like it should be the last one. However, fielding impacts more parts of the game then you might think. It definitely impacts pitchers and their numbers, but it also impacts the players themselves. Some players seem to
Welcome to the 76th episode of the Double Dong Fantasy Baseball Podcast hosted by Ryan Noonan and Broc Miller presented by TheFantasyFix.com!

Opening day has come and gone. Every team has posted a lineup and all but two have now played an official game (Tigers at White Sox yet to start as of typing). So we’re going to take a whistle stop tour of some interesting notes from the opening day games.

Admittedly, breaking down fielding numbers is a guilty pleasure, but it isn’t simply an idle hobby when it comes to fantasy baseball. Sure, fielding numbers don’t count in the official standings, but some teams are getting wise to the interaction between fielding and pitching. They not only are breaking down
The season is upon us. Drafts are complete (or at least most are). All that’s left is to sit back and enjoy proper baseball again. So it’s the perfect time to present to you what I call my “No Way Pedro” article. It’s similar to the bold predictions you’ll see

For instance, many of you may be participating in daily fantasy baseball. Looking at average auction values in comparison with projected performance can help you determine which
Many of you have already completed your draft or auction, but research shouldn’t end when your draft or auction are finished. Many of you play daily fantasy sports (if your state allows you) and if you do then these results are paramount. They are excellent predictors as to the price
