by Ray Kuhn Two teams let Joe Blandisi go without even a contract and the entire NHL passed on him. It seems like their loss is the New Jersey Devils’ gain. Blandisi was drafted by the Colorado Avalanche with the 164th pick in the 2012 draft and they left him in the OHL without a contract. When he was still unsigned he went undrafted in 2014 and made it through a Buffalo Sabres tryout camp without a (read more...)

Market Watch: Who You Need To Buy, Sell & Hold
Fri, Feb 12, 2016 Category: BASKETBALL
by Matthew Bellerose With trade deadlines looming, it is a good idea to evaluate the standpoint of fantasy rosters as well as the major league rosters. If you’re drifting in the back end of the league, maybe some owners will make some poor decisions that you could benefit from. If you are one of the leaders, stay consistent and be smart through the all-star break. Try not to get too cute, but also know your weaknesses. (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) When thinking of a young Minnesota starting pitcher all eyes fall on Jose Berrios, but the Twins were cautious with the top prospect in ’15 .  Instead of seeing if he could make an impact down the stretch they opted to keepi him in the minors. Instead it was Tyler Duffey who the team summoned, and he had been impressive both at Double-A (2.56 ERA) and Triple-A (2.53 ERA) before (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Earlier this week we took a look at #1-20 of our outfield rankings (click here to view), so who finds their way into the next 20?  Who are the players we are going to want to target and who are the big names we should be looking to avoid?  Let’s take a look: 21) Kyle Schwarber – Chicago Cubs 22) Ryan Braun – Milwaukee Brewers 23) Jacoby Ellsbury – New York Yankees 24) Gregory (read more...)

by Will Overton Last week in the waiver wire feature we discussed a position that is very hard to fill through the waiver wire, and that’s the power forward/center position. This week we’re going to hit on another waiver wire dry spot, the assists category. I say it all the time, but to work the wire and make trades properly you need to know your standings and you need to know where you have a chance to (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) It’s easy to let the Cardinals pitching prospects, most notably Alex Reyes, get all of the attention. However the team has a trio of outfield prospects who all bring intriguing skill sets. Is playing time the reason they don’t get much attention? Moving Stephen Piscotty or Matt Holliday to first base is an easy solution, and something they may actually need to do. While it’s easy to argue the order, let’s (read more...)

Dynasty League Rankings (2016): Top 20 Second Baseman
Thu, Feb 11, 2016 Category: BASEBALL
by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) There are a lot of young, emerging second baseman who make it easy to ignore some of the “elder” statesman. You’ll notice that players like Brandon Phillips (34-years old), Ben Zobrist (34-years old) and Howie Kendrick (32-years old) all fall short of the list, despite being potential Top 15 options in 2016. Who are the players who join the fray in their place? Let’s take a look: 1) Jose Altuve – (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Mat Latos split time with three different teams in 2015. While that’s not necessarily indicative of “struggles”, given the trading around the game, it certainly wasn’t a good sign. Pitching for the Marlins, Dodgers and Angels he pitched 116.1 innings and compiled a 4.95 ERA and 1.31 WHIP. While there is obviously concern in the numbers, specifically the ERA, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t hope that the 28-year old rebounds. (read more...)

by Ray Kuhn Alex Collins finished his college career with a flourish, rushing for 185 yards and 3 TD in a victory over Kansas State in the Liberty Bowl. Leaving Arkansas after his junior season, he carried the load this season but the question still remains as to whether he can be an every down back at the next level. What is clear is that the 5’11”, 206 pound running back does have a future in the (read more...)

by Will Overton We posted our injury report yesterday discussing players going on the shelf and players coming off of it. As you could have almost guaranteed would happen, later the day that article was put up big time injury news broke. The Memphis Grizzlies announced yesterday that their franchise cornerstone and center Marc Gasol had broken his foot and would be out indefinitely. There will be some trickle-down effect from this injury. We’re going to take (read more...)
