Beginner's Luck? Chase Claypool, Travis Fulgham, Other WR Breakouts

It sometimes takes rookie wide receivers a season or two to reach their full potential. Davante Adams averaged 465 receiving yards in his first two NFL seasons. Michael Irvin had a total of 78 receptions in his first three NFL seasons. The 2014 season was a special one for rookie WRs. Mike Evans, Odell Beckham... Read More

Giant Problems: Projecting Daniel Jones and Receivers ROS

No one expected the Giants to be able to challenge for a playoff spot in “real life” football this season, but fantasy football players were optimistic that their roster could be a good resource that might help them reach the playoffs in their own fantasy leagues.

Parris Campbell (WR, IND) - Fantasy Football Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around 140 Overall CURRENT ADP: ~175 Analysis: Parris Campbell can potentially finish second in targets among Colts WRs this season.

Boom or Bust WR Predictions: Brandin Cooks, DeVante Parker, Calvin Ridley

There is a tremendous amount of depth at the wide receiver position in fantasy football this season. At the same time, the trend of NFL teams using the running back by committee approach is making it harder and harder to find a bell-cow running back these days. Consequently, most football players have justifiably abandoned the... Read More

The New Big Red Machine

For some, the nickname Big Red Machine conjures up fond memories of former WWE superstar and current Knox County, TN mayor Kane (real name Glenn Jacobs). However, the mere mention of the Big Red Machine in the mid to late 1970s made many big league pitchers shudder in fear at the prospect of facing a Reds...

David Peralta (OF, ARI) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~ 235 CURRENT ADP: ~250 overall ANALYSIS: David Peralta played in just 99 games last season due to a shoulder injury that eventually required surgery.

Shogo Akiyama (OF, CIN) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~ 230 CURRENT ADP: ~267 overall ANALYSIS: Once the 2020 season gets underway it will officially be “Sho Time” in Cincinnati!

Deeper Draft Sleepers - NL Outfielders

We’re confident there will be a 2020 baseball season, but the game might look a little different. For instance, we may not see a 162 game season and the first several weeks may be played in empty baseball stadiums. The game may also feature a universal designated hitter. In attempting to identify deep outfield NL... Read More

Second-Year Hitters Ready To Break Out

We fantasy baseball players were treated to a large influx of talented rookie batters last season. Some like Peter Alonso and Eloy Jimenez enjoyed breakout seasons.

Michael Pineda (SP, NYY) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~205 Overall ANALYSIS: In between his suspension for the “pine tar incident” and a long DL stint, Michael Pineda did show flashes of brilliance last season. His first-strike and swinging-strike percentages were well above average. Not only did Pineda do a good job of getting ahead of batters, but once batters were behind in... Read More

Jorge Soler (OF, CHC) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~120 Overall ANALYSIS: Jorge Soler is a pure power hitter with great bat speed and patience to make opposing pitchers work. He doesn’t strike out as much as the typical slugger, and he’s not afraid to take a walk. Even though Soler spent a productive 24 games with the Cubs late last season, he... Read More

Age 27 Hitters Primed For A Big Season

The Called Shot, The Billy Goat & The 27 Year Old Throughout its long history, the game of baseball has been surrounded by legends and folklore. Many of us are familiar with Babe Ruth’s called shot, where he pointed to the centerfield bleachers and hit a home run to that very same spot on the next... Read More

Henderson Alvarez (SP, MIA) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~230 Overall ANALYSIS: Henderson Alvarez compiled a 12-7 record along with a 2.65 ERA in 30 starts last season, yet he is consistently available after the 20th round in most 12-team leagues for 2015. The Marlins have enough belief in Alvarez’s talent to make him their opening day starter while Jose Fernandez is recuperating from... Read More

Joc Pederson (OF, LAD) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~200 Overall ANALYSIS: Joc Pederson decimated the Pacific Coast League’s pitching last year, slugging 33 HR and stealing 30 bases. By jettisoning Matt Kemp to the rival Padres, the Dodgers have given the rookie Pederson a vote of confidence, as well as the everyday centerfield job. Beyond his tools, Pederson gives the Dodgers a young player who wants... Read More

Jesse Hahn (SP, OAK) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~240 Overall ANALYSIS: It’s not often that minor league statistics can be used to predict the performance of a future major leaguer, but when it comes to Jesse Hahn, it’s safe to say the writing has been on the wall all along. Hahn has just 73.1 innings of major league experience, but in... Read More

Leonys Martin (OF, TEX) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~160 Overall ANALYSIS: The Texas Rangers recently announced that Leonys Martin would be their everyday leadoff hitter, which should give his fantasy value a nice boost. Martin stole nine of his 31 bases last season after the Rangers inserted him into the leadoff spot in September. Martin also improved his contact and walk rates, and... Read More

Oswaldo Arcia (OF, MIN) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~240 Overall ANALYSIS: Oswaldo Arcia has a ton of power, but if he expects to make it in the big leagues, he needs to cut down on the strikeouts. Arcia has put in a lot of time in Venezuela this offseason, working on becoming a more patient hitter. He had a brutal 31% strikeout rate... Read More

Carlos Carrasco (SP, CLE) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~130 Overall ANALYSIS: Two years removed from Tommy John surgery, former top prospect Carlos Carrasco finally enjoyed a breakout year for the Indians in 2014. He flourished once he was inserted into the Indians’ starting rotation, posting a 1.72 ERA while striking out 86 in the 78.2 IP after the All-Star break. Carrasco was... Read More

Michael Taylor (OF, WAS) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Late in Deep Leagues leagues ANALYSIS: Michael Taylor is a power hitting speed demon who’ll likely be the Washington Nationals’ centerfielder for the first month of the season. Taylor is expected to fill in for Denard Span, who underwent surgery on March 9th to repair a right core muscle injury. He has enjoyed a standout... Read More

Marcell Ozuna (OF, MIA) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Between Rounds 10 and 12 ANALYSIS: The Miami Marlins have the potential to put up one of the best young outfields in baseball for the next several years. We’re all familiar with Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich has garnered a ton of attention, but 23-year-old Marcell Ozuna is still flying under the radar. Ozuna’s skillset... Read More

Michael Wacha (SP, STL) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~14th Round ANALYSIS: Much was expected from Michael Wacha last season after he posted a 9.05 K/9 rate and 2.78 ERA in nine starts during his 2013 rookie campaign. Unfortunately, a stress reaction in his right shoulder forced the Cardinals to shut him down for seven weeks in 2014. Once he came back... Read More

Kennys Vargas (1B/DH, MIN) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft Target Late in All Leagues ANALYSIS: Kennys Vargas got a brief taste of major league pitching last season - and after racking up nine home runs, 10 doubles and 38 RBI in just 215 at bats, he is ready for a second helping in 2015. Vargas’ career minor league power numbers and... Read More

Five Outfield Sleepers for 2015

Every fantasy player wants to boast that he or she picked up a player in the wee hours of their fantasy drafts who put up a genuine a breakout season.

Five Starting Pitcher Sleepers for 2015

With pitchers having gained the upper hand over batters in recent years, many fantasy baseball owners have adopted a strategy in which they put off drafting the majority of their starting pitchers until the later rounds.
