by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) The Houston Texans have already taken their starting quarterback job away from Ryan Fitzpatrick once, turning things over to Ryan Mallett.  After Mallett was lost for the season due to a pectoral injury the Texans now face the decision of turning things back to Fitzpatrick or giving fourth round selection Tom Savage a chance. At this point we know what Fitzpatrick is, and that’s nothing that’s going to excite anyone.  That’s (read more...)

by Ray Kuhn The Atlanta Braves are hardly ever wrong on pitchers. They have perfected the art of buying and selling pitchers at just the right time, and the fact that they have one of the best pitching coaches in the game, Roger McDowell, certainly helps. So for that reason, I immediately became cautiously optimistic about Shelby Miller for 2015 once it was announced that the Braves had acquired him in the Jason Heyward deal. Now don’t get (read more...)

by Ray Kuhn Shonn Greene is not an exciting fantasy option. In fact he is pretty boring. Greene doesn’t even fall into the category of being a good player in real life, just not that valuable for fantasy.  He’s simply not that good… So then why does he get an article this week? In the last week of the regular season why should you even care about a running back who might not crack the Top 40 (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) 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 – Ryan Tannehill – Miami Dolphins – at New York Jets He was hyped as a potential breakout candidate heading into the season and, quietly, he’s lived up to it.  His 20 TD places him 11th in the league and his (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) There are a lot of rumors surrounding how the Braves will proceed this offseason, but most have them trading away Evan Gattis and turning their catching job over to Christian Bethancourt. Time will tell but it’s worth taking a look at Bethancourt, who is far more known for his defense than his offense. Appearing in 31 games for Atlanta last season, Bethancourt hit .248 with 0 HR and 9 RBI over (read more...)

by Will Overton With no games on the schedule today for fantasy basketball players and all eyes glued to football for the most part I figured we’d have a little fun. Instead of analysis or lineup setting advice, we’re going to talk about players that fantasy owners are thankful for. Obviously fantasy owners are very thankful for the likes of Anthony Davis and Stephen Curry, but we all knew what they would do. We’re going to list (read more...)

Week 13 Rankings (2014): Top 20 Tight Ends
Thu, Nov 27, 2014 Category: FOOTBALL
by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Tight end has become one of the most frustrating positions on a weekly basis, hasn’t it?  You really just never know where the big performance is going to come from (see Tim Wright as an example).  That’s not to say that there aren’t dependable options, but the difference between many of these players is extremely small: Jimmy Graham – New Orleans Saints – at Pittsburgh Rob Gronkowski – New England Patriots (read more...)

Week 13 Rankings (2014): Top 15 Kickers
Wed, Nov 26, 2014 Category: FOOTBALL
by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Kickers are often overlooked, but there are times where they could actually be the difference between winning and losing in a given week.  Who is the best options for Week 13?  Let’s take a look: Adam Vinatieri – Indianapolis Colts – vs. Washington Stephen Gostkowski – New England Patriots – at Green Bay Mason Crosby – Green Bay Packers – vs. New England Dan Bailey – Dallas Cowboys – vs. Philadelphia Randy Bullock – (read more...)

by Will Overton News broke earlier this week that Kevin Martin’s wrist injury was one that would require surgery and he would be sidelined for at least six weeks time with the injury. Martin was the Timberwolves leading scorer so far and leaves a pretty big gap to fill on the team. So far in Martin’s stead it has been Corey Brewer who has stepped in to start at shooting guard for the Timberwolves. Brewer is a (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) The Nationals’ Jordan Zimmermann surprisingly found his name in trade rumors, something that you could argue makes little sense considering he may be the team’s best pitcher… That’s right, despite the presence of Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez and Doug Fister, a very real argument could be made that Zimmermann is the ace of the staff. Don’t believe it? Just look at his numbers from last season: 199.2 IP 14 Wins 2.66 ERA 1.07 WHIP 182 (read more...)
