2014 Fantasy Baseball: Marcus Stroman, Disturbingly Underdiscussed

It’s kind of hard to remember that Marcus Stroman was called up this season. It was a huge deal when it happened, but there hasn’t been much noise around him since, maybe it’s because the Blue Jays have fallen off. Still, he joined a struggling rotation that was basically just being asked to not blow […]

2014 Fantasy Football: Offseason Movers — Maurice Jones-Drew

The Raiders brought in Oakland born and former U.C.L.A. running back Maurice Jones-Drew in the offseason, and they'll be hoping he has a bounce back in him.

2014 Fantasy Football: Offseason Movers — Toby Gerhart

2014 Fantasy Baseball: The Farm Report, July 22

The MiLB report is back. Mookie Betts, after a short stint in Boston, is back in Triple-A. His long term prospects haven’t changed, though; his talent will likely shine through next season, when he should be in line for regular at-bats. Another stalwart, who bursted onto the scene, has struggled mightily lately – if you’re […]

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Real Offensive Value – Shortstops Part I

The history of the shortstop position has been littered with light hitting mighty mice with quick feet and slick gloves. We could certainly point to certain players in history that have broken the mold, but it is a testament to the rarity of offensive prowess that got Derek Jeter his many ovations during the all-star […]

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Real Offensive Value — Third Basemen, Part II

It’s funny, but the second group of fantasy third basemen is almost as distinguished as the first. This is how things often go in fantasy baseball. The question comes on how long to wait for normalcy to return. Sometimes it never does. The all-star break is closer to the 60 percent mark than the 50 […]

2014 Fantasy Basketball: The Return of Al Horford

The man I call ‘dependable Al’ was off to his usual solid start to the 2013-14 season until December 26th when he left the Hawks game with what appeared to be a shoulder injury. Later we found out that it was instead a torn right pectoral muscle which reminded his owners immediately of January 2012 […]
