In this year's fantasy football player pool, it's more important to grab running backs and wide receivers early on than to pay for top quarterback and tight end names. In most non-skewed QB scoring leagues, I'll take a snap-grabber in the bottom portion of the top 10 or 12 ADP and pair him with a midrange backup.
The baseball season is almost at the halfway point. Hopefully your fantasy baseball squads are all in a position to contend for a title in the second half. If not, why not engage in a fantasy football mock draft to take your mind off of the baseball season? I recently did so, and am currently [...]
To me, this should go without saying, but every time I believe that I field a question asking why I didn't address said topic. Today's edition: Don't draft Terrell Owens, regardless of what his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, says. I hate to sound so cynical - well, actually I don't at all - but people always [...]
Nothing about his batted-ball profile screams improvement, either. We're looking at a whisper of hope in gaining some fantasy value from Alvarez for 2011. It's yearning for the same epiphany he had last September.
I can't get enough of Miami Dolphins rookie running back Daniel Thomas in my early drafts. Ricky Williams was an elite choice last time I cared about any fantasy football commodity in South Florida. At 6-foot, 230 pounds, the likely new starter in Miami is a load to bring down. Additionally, his hands are well [...]
Now that big-time prospects like Anthony Rizzo, Dustin Ackley, Mike Trout, Domonic Brown, Mike Moustakas and Eric Hosmer have made their debuts in your fantasy baseball leagues in 2011, I'm already waiting for the next call-up that can have a major impact. Although I don't own him anywhere (yet), many of you already have Desmond [...]
The San Diego Padres pushed Cory Luebke into their rotation, which instantly moved the needle on his fantasy baseball value meter.
They - you know, the proverbial council of all that is right and noble - suggest you should always listen to your gut, even when it's not screaming for a hot pastrami sandwich. Go with your hunch ... your first instinct is usually right ... do what you think is right ... the list goes [...]
I know you are tired of hearing about him, and I have a nearly exhausted my tolerance for writing about him, but Brett Favre may not be as done as people think. The 41-year-old "retired" legend says his arm feels as good as ever, but he doesn't want to keep putting his body through the [...]
Looking for an obscure arm that can help your pitching ratios? If so, look to Pittsburgh Pirates hurler Jeff Karstens; he's owned in just nine percent of Yahoo! leagues and seven percent in ESPN leagues. I know, you're still wondering who Karstens actually is. The reason why he's not even a small blip on most [...]
Kenny Williams seemed to suggest that it won't be long before the Chicago White Sox call upon Dayan Viciedo. He's definitely worth stashing, but a move probably isn't imminent.
Often, we must be Bidding on Faith, especially on those in which we have faith in running. My latest Hail Mary? Jordan Schafer, swiper of four bags in three games this past weekend. Nate McLouth (oblique) might be returning from the DL this week, but does he deserve a starting spot? Maybe with Jason Heyward (shoulder) and Martin Prado (calf) also sidelined, but when they're back?
One KFFL viewer recently asked a question that I felt would be great to cover, and I have even have some personal experience with the topic. The gentleman was looking for help trying to convince the fellow owners in his league to add a wrinkle to their scoring system. He wanted to see players awarded [...]
In this week's midseason finale, Stan realizes that he's becoming cynical about everything he knows, hears, sees, etc., as excrement fills up his senses. Not far off from how we're questioning the usefulness of our failing fantasy baseball centerpieces. Was our faith in them ... a bunch of crap?
In case you didn't notice, Edinson Volquez is back starting with the Cincinnati Reds, and he didn't give up any runs or walks in the first inning versus the Chicago Cubs Tuesday. As a Volquez owner, I was pretty shocked about that, and bummed I didn't have the guts to play him. His final line [...]
