A quick (and effective?) way to evaluate a team

In fantasy sports, the key to success, above all else, is proper evaluation.  Evaluation of your players, your team, other players, other teams, etc.  Making the right draft picks is based on...

Mixed League Trade

In my main league I made a trade yesterday that I've been working on for about a week.  5x5 rotisserie, 10 teams, 7 keepers.  This league is interesting because you only have 5 active SP, in an...

My goodness, talk about a mixed bag here.  This could be the craziest player profile I've seen in the last 5 or so years.  Some guys have been just as unpredictable, but not with the ceiling Upton...

Just an observation

In regards to this blog:   I'm a big SB Nation fan, I'm an active member at a bunch of them and I enjoy Fake Teams as well.  I have a gripe with the scope of its coverage however.  A few weeks ago...

An interesting league

My last draft of the year is tonight at a local restaurant at 6pm.  This league is a bit strange.  It's largely a group of middle-aged men, 14 teams, QB heavy scoring.  This is going to be the...

I'm in 3 football leagues this season, the first of which drafted last night.  12 teams, standard scoring (non-PPR), roster as follows: QB, (2) RB, (3) WR/TE, K, DEF.  Here are the results, how did...

Alright, I give in.

In one of my head-to-head leagues I'm going to attempt the all-pitching-and-steals strategy for next year.  This league has 4 keepers and the trade deadline is tomorrow so I don't have much time; ...

I think I'd like to challenge a cardinal rule of fantasy football

This rule being that RB's are your bread and butter.  They're the dressing in your salad.  Grab two and grab two EARLY.  Why?  Is it the consistency week to week?  Sure, they are more consistent...

A tough keeper question

I'm in a 14 team league with some interesting keeper rules.  A player can only be kept twice in consecutive years, and then he goes back to the draft.  You must keep 3 players.  This is a...

Let's talk about Delwyn Young

In celebration of Delwyn Young turning 27 yesterday, I tried to take a hard look at what we might have here... The Delwyn Young trade made in April was viewed mostly as a shoulder-shrugger; the P...

Jay Bruce: Get In On The Ground Floor

He's arrived for good.  Still only 22 years old with just under 600 Major League at-bats, his stats, and more importantly his skills, say he's here.  His current projected line is .241, 51 HR, 102...

Soriano/Lee: Who will fall off first?

I have them both in my main money league.  I drafted Jay Bruce so I'm hoping he moves into the elite group of OF's allowing me to trade one of these guys mideason while they still have value.  The...

All praise... Barry Bonds?

In light of the recent admission by Alex Rodriguez that he knowingly took illegal PED's from 2001-2003, I think it becomes even clearer than previously thought that we are, indeed, comparing...

How would you draft a defense with this scoring format?

My 3rd league has an odd (read: ridiculous) scoring format for Team defense.  You LOSE 1 point for every point your defense gives up.  So, you could have the TB defense, record 8 sacks, 4 INT's, 6...

Oliver Perez Through Two Months

Mike Gonzalez to have TJ surgery

Via Rotoworld, Mike Gonzalez is out for the season.Well, it certainly looks like the Bucs got the better end of this deal, even if Adam LaRoche doesn't turn out to be terribly productive.
