Trade deadline: Lester to OAK, Cespedes to BOS

4

Trade deadline day started in a big way, with huge names switching coasts. We break down the fantasy implications.

Danny Salazar and Sticking to Your Guns

1

The Cleveland youngster was a popular pick in the spring. If you liked him then, you should like him now. No excuses.

+

Closer Rankings: The trades came early

6

Huston Street and Joakim Soria both moved well before the deadline. Is there anything left to happen?

Darin Ruf and the End of Ryan Howard

1

The Phillies appear to be done with their too-expensive first baseman, and that means Ruf is due for a big increase in playing time and fantasy relevance.

Fantasy football: Andy Dalton's repeatability

+

The Bengals quarterback was a big scorer in 2013, but it came in an unconventional manner. Can he do it again? We break down the fantasy implications.

Craig Gentry and Grabbing Steals on the Fly

1

Most of the guys who steal huge numbers of bases are off the board, but not the Oakland outfielder.

Trade Deadline: Rangers' trade chips

4

The Rangers' season has been largely unprecedented. Does the team's free-fall mean it's going to sell all its pieces? We break down the fantasy implications.

Fantasy football: The Cardinals and the NFC West

+

Teams as talented as Arizona generally don't miss the playoffs two years in a row. Can they take a step forward in 2014? We break down the fantasy implications.

Fantasy football: Titans recovery from departures

+

Tennessee lost as big a chunk of their 2013 fantasy production as any team in football in the offseason, and they will look to others in their efforts to make it up. We break down the fantasy...

Midseason position look: Shortstops

15

Shortstop was shallow, and we knew it, and it has been. Let's look back at what we got right and what we got wrong.

Fantasy football: The always-last Bills

+

No team in sports has finished in last as many years in a row as Buffalo. Can the influx of new talent change that? We break down the fantasy implications.

Closer Rankings: Who might go where

2

There are only a few teams seriously in the market for a closer, but a lot of guys who could be on the market.

Midseason position look: Catchers

2

Perhaps no position has turned out as difficult to predict as the backstops in 2014. We look at who has surprised us, in both directions.

Fantasy football: Replacing the Steelers' TDs

+

By letting Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery go after 2013, the Steelers are without a lot of their touchdowns. Can the new guys in rotation replace those scores? We break down the fantasy...

Nick Castellanos and Meeting the Hype a Bit Late

3

The Tigers third baseman was a second-tier prospect entering the season, which means we kind of forgot about him after his early struggles. Time to rectify that.

PRESENTED BY Clone490146562_893660388_logo_stb

Fantasy football: The ever-consistent Cowboys

+

Amid all the turmoil, few teams have offered as steady a group of fantasy producers as Dallas in recent years. We break down the fantasy implications.

Closer Rankings: Top 30 closers aren't Top 30 RPs

1

When picking a fantasy closer, you're kinda stuck with what the big-league managers give you.

A's deal Russell for Samardzija, Hammel

9

The first chips fell in the July trade season, and it's a heck of a big deal. We break down the fantasy implications.

Equivalent Fantasy Average: Pitchers, at last

5

The pitching side of this has been my white whale. But I might have gotten there. Read and critique!

Equivalent Fantasy Average: June wrap-up

1

We're basically halfway through the season. Time to look at the sorting metric that looks only at fantasy numbers.

Fantasy football: Next tier of NO pass-catchers?

The Saints are legendary for their vaunted offense, but that hasn't translated to as much varied fantasy success as you might expect. We break down the fantasy implications.

Closer Rankings: Frieri-Grilli was ... intriguing

8

Friday night saw a trade of two guys who were closers, like, a week and a half ago. It's fascinating for those of us who watch closers all the time.

Fantasy football: The Rams' search for interest

There just weren't any storylines surrounding the Rams in fantasy in 2013. Can they get interesting this season? We break down the fantasy implications.

Derek Norris, John Jaso, and One Awesome Platoon

+

The Oakland catching tandem has been dominant this year, and adding both guys would give you a single dominant catcher as well.

Fantasy football: Are Philly players reliable?

Almost every Philadelphia skill player comes with a wide range of possible 2014 outcomes. We break down the fantasy implications.

Closer Rankings: Friday blip for the biggest names

+

Friday saw six of the league's best closers all crash and burn. Can we take anything away from that?

Josh Harrison and Playing All Over the Diamond

2

The Pirates' utilityman has been valuable so far this year, to the point that the team will keep finding ways to keep him on the field.

Fantasy football: Can the Chargers climb?

San Diego made the playoffs last year, but did so as a clear step below their divisionmates in the AFC West. Can they make up the gap despite a relatively quiet offseason? We break down the fantasy...

Danny Duffy and Fun with Blind Resumes

72

The Royals youngster has been impressive since joining the rotation. As impressive, in fact, as some starters of much greater fame.
