Fantasy Baseball 2014 Cheat Sheet

Miggy Smalls is the illest… Photo Credit: Keith Allison   If you read my work, you know that I much prefer the auction format to a snake draft. The reasons are plentiful (even playing field for all owners, less luck involved, etc.), but we won’t get into all that now.    Despite my feelings on […]

Fantasy Baseball Relief Pitchers 2014: Tiers, Not Fears

Chap’ a Hoe Photo Credit: Keith Allison   In the final installment of “Tiers, Not Fears,” we have landed at relief pitching. A lot of fantasy owners hate having to deal with closers, but not me. While you read a lot of “don’t pay for saves” idioms being thrown out there, the fact is, if […]

Fantasy Baseball Third Basemen 2014: Tiers, Not Fears

“Damn I Wish That Leg Was A Cheeseburger” Photo Credit: Miss Chatter   Aside from first base, third is the deepest infield fantasy position. It’s top heavy, filled with sleepers, and best yet, there are plenty of opportunities to get a good deal, so you don’t have to overspend.    In fact, the position is […]

Fantasy Baseball Shortstops 2014: Tiers, Not Fears

Don’t Be a Jav’ Not Photo Credit: Nick Martinez   Although I think second base is more deprived of fantasy talent than short, there’s no denying that the shortstop landscape is littered with underwhelming options. After the first few names, you enter a land-mine of shitty options. If you are able to secure an advantage […]

Fantasy Baseball Second Basemen 2014: Tiers, Not Fears

Dead Wong Photo Credit: Johnmaxmena2   People still consider shortstop the shallowest position in fantasy baseball, but if you ask me, I think second base is the worst. It used to at least be somewhat top-heavy with guys like Ian Kinsler and Dustin Pedroia carrying relatively high-ceilings, but now those players are becoming less-appealing fantasy […]

Fantasy Baseball First Basemen 2014: Tiers, Not Fears

Stat Adams Photo Credit: Johnmaxmena2   Normally, the term "first base" is synonymous with "failure" for handsome soothsayers like myself. Yet when we are talking fantasy baseball, the word takes on a more positive connotation. First base is deep, always has been.    Sure the league-wide drop in power over the past few years has […]

Fantasy Baseball Catchers 2014: Tiers, Not Fears

Lukewarm for Lucroy Photo Credit: Jon Konrath Fantasy owners should no longer feel the temptation to give up on the catcher position. The position is as deep as ever, with plenty of pop filling up the ranks despite power being down league-wide across the majors. Admittedly, if you play in a two-catcher league, it won’t […]

Matt Shemp has made his recent fantasy owners look like stooges Photo Credit: Ron Reiring   The OF position is deep… this we all know. What people tend to overlook is the fact that there are a ton of red-flags around the position once you get past the the top 20 or so. Owners in […]

It goes without saying […]
