Fantasy Draft Strategy: Identifying Undervalued Players

Since we’re in the middle of draft season, a cliché I’m hearing a lot is this: You want to find value during your draft; find assets (players) who are being undervalued.

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Right Field VORP Revisited

View image | gettyimages.com This marks the end of the VORP revisited series.

If you follow them down the rabbit hole, you usually wind up either in the cellar or somewhere near it. If you use this as just one of many tools at your...

Matt’s Monday Musings: Mancrush Edition

Mancrush – a word that may make some people uncomfortable. It also sounds like it could be the name of a character in comics or Game of Thrones. Mancrushes can exist in sports, movies, or other avenues of life. I’m not ashamed to say that I have a mancrush on Jason Statham (watch the oil fight in The Transporter and tell me he isn’t cool). I also have mancrushes on a few players...

As someone who needs to pat their lip with a kerchief after a sip of anything, I know about making your life difficult, but my mustache makes me sexy, Salazar going to the minors does the exact opposite.

Deep League Thoughts: Nick Franklin

Ah, the middle infield. Can you think of any other fantasy position where people praise mediocrity more than here? I owned Daniel Murphy in 2014 and it was great! Kudos to you, my friend...kudos.
