Razzball   Apr 3rd, 1:00pm ET
The little team that I always forget about until the regular season is over and ask myself "wait -- the Athletics made the playoffs?!" This team is filled with exciting fantasy hitters at their top of the lineup who will provide solid fantasy production to...

The amount of information available to fantasy baseball managers is almost overwhelming, and it continues to grow each season. Every year, there is a new statistic that pops up showing that Player A should've done this or Player B was unlucky in that. As a...

Is there a more frustrating fantasy category than saves? Time and time again, we spend top draft capital on purported "lock-down" closers only to see them lose their roles before May. Based on experience, it is best to wait out closer runs and, instead, target...

I consider myself a fairly optimistic person. Take this whole coronavirus thing. I don’t have it (or maybe I do -- or maybe I do and don’t know it -- or maybe I don’t and do know it and now you have it just from reading this article.) It’s...

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~90CURRENT ADP: ~106 overallANALYSIS:The New York Mets thought they had their whole bullpen figured out after they acquired Diaz from the Seattle Mariners before the 2019 season. Diaz was one of the top closers in baseball, and advanced...

Spring training stats, traditionally, don't matter. Teams that look like powerhouses in March will lose 100 games in the regular season. Teams that can't even win against split-squad opponents in March will win their divisions in September. Hitters who hit...

BALLER MOVE: Target ~150-165CURRENT ADP: ~183 overallANALYSIS: Kenta Maeda had a successful season in 2019, and the future might be even brighter with the Minnesota Twins. Maeda started 2019 in the rotation, but he was moved to the bullpen in September. The...
Sporting News   Mar 9th, 7:47pm ET
No position causes more headaches for fantasy baseball owners than closer. In fact, it's the single worst position in all of fantasy sports, at least if you still have saves as a category. Injuries, committees, openers, sudden demotions, trade rumors -- it...

Hernández hasn't yet established himself in the majors, but he has the potential to be a bullpen mainstay for years to come.
RotoBaller   Mar 9th, 8:30am ET
There were plenty of surprises in the last few baseball seasons, including some huge ones that we didn't really find out about until 2020. There's no reason to think that this year will be any less surprising, and if anything, there's plenty to go on when...
