Buy or Sell: Jonas Gray as a Fantasy Starter?
Thu, Nov 20, 2014 Category: FOOTBALL
by Ray Kuhn Jonas Gray had his best game of the 2014 season while he was on either your league’s waiver wire or someone’s bench. There really is nowhere for Gray to go but down here. But is there anything wrong with that? And what does it mean for his value? In just his fourth NFL game, Gray had a historical performance on Sunday night against the Colts. Regardless of how high you were on the rookie, (read more...)

by Will Overton In fantasy basketball making trades is all about timing. Buying a guy while he is slumping right before he turns it around is a magical feeling. Just as good is when you trade away a red hot player right before he comes back down to earth. It sucks though when you sell that guy because you expect him to fall back and he never does it. An interesting guy to look at in this (read more...)

by Will Overton Trying to decide who you should start or sit this week? Let’s take a look at a few potential decisions owners have and try to sort through them: Quarterbacks Start – Jay Cutler – Chicago Bears – vs. Tampa Bay The Chicago Bears are an absolute mess of a football team so far this season, but through it all Jay Cutler has remained a top 10 – 12 quarterback and his weapons are getting healthy. He’s (read more...)

Is Alex Cobb A Pitcher To Target In 2015?
Thu, Nov 20, 2014 Category: BASEBALL
by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Last season there was a lot of hype surrounding Alex Cobb, though time missed due to injury as well as a poor first half (4.14 ERA) helped to give the impression of a “poor” year. At the end of the day, though, you can easily make the argument that he actually improved dramatically. Before we got to why, let’s take a look at the actual numbers: 166.1 IP 2.87 ERA 1.14 WHIP 149 Strikeouts (8.06 (read more...)

Week 12 (2014) Rankings – Top 15 Tight Ends
Thu, Nov 20, 2014 Category: FOOTBALL
by Ray Kuhn At this point in the season, there essentially is Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham and then everyone else. Of course some options are better than others and are secure as TE1′s, but the tight end position has been volatile in 2014. The main problem, is that some of the young options we expected to break out have not had the success we projected for them. Let’s take a look at how the tight ends (read more...)

Wed, Nov 19, 2014 Category: FOOTBALL
by Will Overton Playoffs are starting as soon as next week and so the time to shine is now. The do or die games are underway and you need to set your lineup with as much thought as possible. Wide receiver gets even deeper with Josh Gordon back this week and this is how I see the top 50 shaking out: Jordy Nelson – Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Demaryius Thomas – Denver Broncos vs. Miami Dez Bryant – (read more...)

Week 12 (2014) Rankings – Top 15 Defenses
Wed, Nov 19, 2014 Category: FOOTBALL
by Ray Kuhn At this point in the season, we have a significant body of work by which to evaluate both offenses and defenses. Again, we must remember that anything can happen, but year to date stats are becoming increasingly more reliable despite the fact that out liars do exist. Let’s take a look at how the defenses rank for Week 12: Green Bay Packers – at Minnesota New England Patriots – vs. Detroit Kansas City Chiefs – at Oakland San (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) A former first round draft pick in 2011, the Cardinals’ Kolten Wong got his first extended Major League run last season and was somewhat productive. While he hit just .249, he did chip in 12 HR and 20 SB. That is the type of production we like to see, especially from a middle infielder, but is there any reason to actually get excited? Wong has certainly never profiled as a power (read more...)

by Ray Kunn Entering the season, Evan Fournier really didn’t have much value. We were talking about a shooting guard entering his third NBA season after averaging 8.4 points per game last season. But then a Victor Oladipo injury changed things. Fournier was suddenly in the starting lineup, and with the increase in minutes came an increase in production. Entering Monday night, Fournier was averaging 17.6 points per game to go along with 2.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists. (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Adrian Beltre has long been considered one of the elite third basemen in the game. With Miguel Cabrera losing eligibility you would think he’d be locked into the top spot for 2015, though the following line does leave a little bit of doubt: 549 At Bats .324 Batting Average (178 Hits) 19 Home Runs 77 RBI 79 Runs 1 Stolen Bases .388 On Base Percentage .492 Slugging Percentage .345 Batting Average on Balls in Play Obviously the average isn’t an (read more...)
