R.A. Dickey solid in win Thursday night

R.A. Dickey took advantage of a warm and humid evening in Atlanta and produced a solid, eight-inning effort in the Braves' 3-2 victory over the Nationals. He allowed four hits, two runs (both earned), and no walks while recording four strikeouts. With the win, his record improves to 10-10. Dickey joins an elite club comprised of Max Scherzer, Chris Sale, Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, and Gio Gonzalez, all of whom have won at least 10 games in each of the last six seasons. He will pitch again Tuesday against Chris Flexen and the Mets in New York.

Fantasy Impact

Dickey was a little emotional after pitching his final home game of 2017, and perhaps of his career. The Braves hold an option on him for next year but there is no guarantee he will even pitch, choosing to retire instead.

R.A. Dickey struggles Saturday night

R.A. Dickey didn't get the weather he needed for his knuckleball to be effective in the Braves' 7-3 loss to the Mets Saturday night. Over five innings, he allowed eight hits, five runs (all earned), and two walks while not recording any strikeouts. With the loss, Dickey's record on the year sits at 9-10. He will pitch again Friday against Ben Lively and the Phillies in Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

Nothing wrong with Dickey, he is just more effective during the warmer and more humid summer months. The Braves have not said how they will approach 2018 with Dickey but they do have an option on him for next year.

R.A. Dickey struggles against Marlins Sunday

R.A. Dickey had some struggles today against the Marlins, lasting five innings and ending up with a no-decision despite a 10-8 Braves win. Over five, he allowed six hits, five runs (all earned), and three walks while recording five strikeouts. Dickey will pitch again next Sunday against Matt Harvey and the Mets in Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

Dickey's knuckleball doesn't work as well in the fall and spring as it does in summer heat and humidity. It's cooling off now and he has struggled his last two starts.

R. A. Dickey gets loss Monday

R.A. Dickey had a tough outing Monday. Over 4 1/3, he allowed eight hits, seven runs (six earned), and three walks while recording three strikeouts as the Braves fell to the Rangers by a score of 8-2. With the loss, his record sits at 9-9 on the year. Dickey will pitch again Saturday against Adam Conley and the Marlins in Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

Dickey's knuckler had too much rotation and not enough flutter to fool anybody today. He'll look to get back on track Saturday when it will hopefully be warm and humid in Atlanta.

R.A. Dickey impressive in win Wednesday

R.A. Dickey was stellar over eight innings Wednesday in the 9-1 victory over the Phillies. He allowed seven hits, one run (earned), and one walk while recording nine strikeouts. With the win, Dickey has a record of 9-8 on the year. He will pitch again Tuesday against Cole Hamels and the Rangers in Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

Dickey has aged over the summer like a fine wine and he just keeps on impressing, two months away from his 43rd birthday. The rule of thumb is simple: If it's warm, hot, with some humidity, like a Heat Index around 80 or above, he should be in play because it's under those conditions that his knuckleball starts dancing.
