2014 Fantasy Baseball: Carlos Gomez Is Who Some Thought He Was

Note: All stats are as of Tuesday, September 23, 2014.  Carlos Gomez was an interesting name during Draft Season. There were two camps, basically.

2014 Fantasy Football: Blake Bortles and Teddy Bridgewater in 2QB Leagues

In my opinion, two quarterback leagues are the future of fantasy. This season all four of my leagues are two quarterback leagues.

2014 Fantasy Baseball: What if Christian Yelich Had More Power?

Lost in Giancarlo Stanton’s monstrous year is this: Christian Yelich, a popular breakout pick, has been very good. Back in March, he was one of my favorite targets. He was young, disciplined, had some speed and showed good bat-to-ball skills, allowing solid contact more often (he never pops up!). I was able to land him […]

2014 Fantasy Baseball: AL Breakout Starting Pitchers

Evaluating pitchers is much harder than evaluating position players. In many ways, the four main fantasy categories are completely inadequate in truly pinpointing quality in pitching. Sure, ERA and strikeouts are pretty good. WHIP is a little more elusive because of the fielding element. I think we would all agree that wins are a complete […]
