by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) There are certainly questions at the back of the White Sox rotation, even when everybody is healthy, with John Danks and Hector Noesi penciled into the final two spots.  Does anyone truly believe that either will be successful?  Is it hard to imagine that either will be replaced before long?  Enter Carlos Rodon, the southpaw who was the third pick in the 2014 draft. There had been rumblings that he could (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) David Robertson threw in bullpen today. Went well. He has experienced some regular ST soreness. But Robin Ventura doesn’t sound concerned. — Dan Hayes (@CSNHayes) March 26, 2015 David Robertson: “It’s not even dead arm. It’s just you tweak something. You have a little soreness. You just try to get it right.” — Dan Hayes (@CSNHayes) March 26, 2015 The White Sox and Robertson can try to downplay this, but it’s obviously something we (read more...)

by Will Overton This has been a season in which Markieff Morris has finally emerged on the radar of all of fantasy basketball owners. Markieff has only gotten better as the season has gone along and he’s been a top 50 player for the last month of the season. There’s still another Morris though who is getting overlooked while Markieff takes center stage. Marcus Morris is the twin brother of Markieff who also plays for the Suns. (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) There was a time that third base was considered the weakest in fantasy baseball.  At this point that’s clearly a distant memory.  There are a multitude of potential options, some that carry significant risk and others who have the potential to be superstars.  How are things currently ranked?  Let’s take a look: Tier 1: 1. Josh Donaldson – Toronto Blue Jays Tier 2: 2. Adrian Beltre – Texas Rangers Tier 3: 3. Todd Frazier – Cincinnati (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Fantasy owners know the name of Blake Swihart, the Red Sox catching prospect who has drawn comparisons to Buster Posey. When he arrives he will likely hold value, even to those in one-catcher formats, the question really is when that will be. It’s impossible to say for sure, but it likely won’t be before the Super Two cutoff (generally sometime in May/June, but there is no clear date as of yet). (read more...)

by Will Overton When we reached the trade deadline this year Enes Kanter was just a guy in Utah who hadn’t quite lived up to his potential. A guy who people labeled as the one in the way of Rudy Gobert getting more playing time. Now Enes Kanter is in Oklahoma City, the starting center for one of the league’s best teams. Now Enes Kanter is an absolute monster who has been dominating since he arrived in (read more...)

by Will Overton The fantasy playoffs are underway in most leagues, and in roto leagues the chase for the title is likely down to just a shortlist of teams. In all of those cases if your that team on the outside looking in, it is a very place to check out. For the sake of the others in your league I hope you wouldn’t, but if you’re in a dynasty or keeper league checking out could (read more...)

With that in mind, let’s take a look: 1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Jameis Winston – QB – (read more...)

How Should We Deal With Resting Players?
Mon, Mar 23, 2015 Category: BASKETBALL
by Ray Kuhn And down the stretch we come. The problem though is that NBA teams are treating the season’s final games a little differently than fantasy owners. For fantasy owners, the playoffs are up ahead. Every game, every minute, and every rebound are of the utmost importance. Either your playoff hopes or fate in the playoffs are at stake constantly now. No longer is the season a marathon, it is now a sprint. I am not saying (read more...)
