Red Sox Rise in Week 23

This week’s top fantasy baseball players both play for the Boston Red Sox, and a third teammate ranked 7th overall, in a shallow 5×5 Mixed League. Will Middlebrooks was the clear fantasy MVP for the week, batting .464 with 4 HR, 8 R, 9 RBI, and 1 SB – worth $71.76 in the mixed league. Teammate Mike… Continue reading Red Sox Rise in Week 23

Surprises Star in Week 22

This week’s best fantasy players aren’t likely to finish high in the post-season awards voting, but if you’re in a weekly head-to-head league, they’ve sure been fun to watch in week 22. Brandon Moss led the shallow 5×5 Mixed League  ($70.17)as well as deeper 4×4 AL Only ($57.63) and 5×5 AL Only ($54.89) leagues in RotoValue for the… Continue reading Surprises Star in Week 22

Soriano Soars in Week 20

Here‘s… Continue reading New Categories: Pitches, Strikes, and Strike %

Busts at the Break

This week I selected AL and NL fantasy all-star teams – players who exceeded preseason expectations by the largest amount. Not always the best players (although Chris Davis was close), they’re guys whose performance has been worth much more than you’d have expected at your draft. These are the players you need to win fantasy leagues. Today’s topic… Continue reading Busts at the Break

2013 NL Fantasy All Star Team

Yesterday I honored the mid-season AL Fantasy All Star Team. Now it’s time to do the same for the NL. I’m picking the team by finding the biggest positive difference in RotoValue prices computed from current stats at the break compared with preseason Consensus projections, on the theory that the Consensus data are a reasonably… Continue reading 2013 NL Fantasy All Star Team
