Top 10 Dynasty Catchers For 2016

Lets face it, very few catchers are capable of the elite offensive production to be considered legit dynasty league keepsakes. Owning the cream of the crop catcher can provide a nice boost at fantasy baseball’s scarcest position, but it’s not necessary to win your league. A popular strategy for many fantasy baseball enthusiasts is to... Read More

Top 10 Dynasty Starting Pitchers For 2016

Narrowing down a top ten list of starting pitchers is not an easy task. There is so much talent and so many factors to consider.

Top 10 Dynasty First Basemen For 2016

If you are lucky enough to own either of the top two first basemen, consider yourself very fortunate. Paul Goldschmidt is arguably the best baseball player in the world, and Anthony Rizzo isn’t far behind.  Overall, there is plenty of talent available at 1B and the position is deep.  First base is a power bat...

Top 10 Dynasty Second Basemen For 2016

To put it simply, second base is in for a major shakeup in 2016. With the potential arrivals of big name prospects: Yoan Moncada, Javier Baez, Rob Refsnyder and Jose Peraza along with young exciting bats like Jonathan Schoop, Devon Travis and Joe Panik, the position is becoming deeper than ever. For the 2016 season, keeping any... Read More

Top 10 Dynasty Outfielders For 2016

The 2015 season will be remembered as the year of the prospect. From Kris Bryant to Michael Conforto, rookies have drastically altered the dynasty landscape. Suddenly, your 30 year old (plus) keepers like Carlos Gomez, Adam Jones and Jose Bautista are smelling like listerine (the gold antiseptic kind) and Mookie Betts is making your loins a... Read More

It's the fantasy baseball playoffs, baby, and the RotoBaller Cutlist is here to help guide you through the season's toughest decisions.

Cut List: Players to Consider Cutting In Fantasy Baseball (Week 21)

Writing a weekly fantasy baseball column for @rotoballer is great fun, but it puts me at a distinct disadvantage in all of my personal leagues. Let’s face it, the cutlist is revealing. It’s a peek inside my mind to discover the inner workings of my elite management strategy and expert level evaluation of fantasy commodities.... Read More

Cut List: Players to Consider Cutting In Fantasy Baseball (Week 20)

This week, I could make an entire #Cutlist about catchers. Savvy owners that don't employ Buster Posey, Russell Martin, Brian McCann, Carlos Santana or the great Kyle Schwarber might just consider leaving the position empty for a while. Other than Buster Posey, no catcher is ranked in the top 100 and only three are ranked in the... Read More

Cut List: Players to Consider Cutting In Fantasy Baseball (Week 18)

It’s been a hell of a week - and not just in the world of baseball. There was a huge thunderstorm and my house got struck by lightning causing my basement to flood. Even worse, crazy winds carried my bbq grill off my deck and smashed it into pieces. So, in honor of my BBQ, I... Read More

Cut List: Players to Consider Cutting In Fantasy Baseball (Week 17)

While there's been plenty of disappointment this year among the top 50 drafted bats, Edwin Encarnacion, Carlos Gomez, Yasiel Puig and Adrian Beltre highlight the cream of the crop. But, instead of bemoaning bad draft investments, I’m going to talk about five fringe players that should be cut. Go ahead and let another, less informed manager... Read More

Cut List: Players to Consider Cutting Bait On (Week 12)

Stoneface (micro)brewery on the Seacoast of New Hampshire is FANTASTIC. Hidden in a warehouse space in a commercial office park near the highway. It has no particular appeal, other than the beer. No restaurant or bar, just a concrete floor with kegs, boxes and stacks of beer surrounding a counter with taps for tasting and... Read More

The Cut List (Week 11): Players to Consider Cutting Bait On

I often wonder why so many fantasy baseball addicts turn to the Rotoballer Cut List for advice. Is it the cutting edge opinion? The depth of research? Or is it that the Cut List exists at the intersections of pragmatic thought, advanced statistical theory and sophisticated fantasy baseball wisdom? Whichever your reason, welcome back.  This...

With the Houston Astros recently promoting both SS Carlos Correa and SP Vincent Velasquez and breakout performers Cameron Maybin, Chris Heston and Chi Chi Gonzalez getting attention, there are plenty of interesting names out there to for waiver hawks.

Let me veer off track here for a second… I am having a major problem with robots. Not robots like Johnny 5, the kind that billionaire-geniuses are currently inventing.

Top 5 Dynasty / Keeper Catchers for Fantasy Baseball

If I can be frank, if you're keeping a top 4 or 5 rated Dynasty Catcher, your team isn't very good and you should consider a new strategy. With Buster Posey as the exception, most successful fantasy managers would rather roll the dice and get lucky in the draft.  Grab a Sal Perez type breakout... Read More

The Cut List: Week 7

I got a time machine. The only issue is, I don’t accomplish anything intrinsically good with it. I don’t zip back in time to warn people about natural disasters or plane crashes.

The Cut List, Week 5: Time to Let These Players Go

Welcome back to the Cut List, the place where I bitch and moan about my terrible fantasy team. Seriously, what is up with Carlos Gonzalez? My season is slipping away with every 0-for-4. So what do I do? I can't trade CarGo now, at his lowest value, so my only choice is to bench him and... Read More

The Cut List: Time to Let These Players Go?

Welcome to The Cut List, the place where everyone comes to cut the cheese. This week, we will be talking about Mozzarella, Muenster and my personal favorite old cheese, LaTroy Hawkins. If you were unfortunate/dumb enough to draft him, you deserved it. But if you are getting naked for saves like a stripper for dollar bills,... Read More

Top Five Dynasty / Keeper Shortstops for 2015

Winning in a dynasty league requires bold strategy, smart trades and a ton of luck. This past season in a keeper league, I lost in the semifinals on account of a Carlos Santana stolen base. That was Santana’s fifth SB of the year and served as the tiebreaker that ended my season. You just can't... Read More

Top Five Dynasty / Keeper Third Basemen

In a surprising turn of events, no veteran third basemen made the Top Five Dynasty/Keeper list. Veterans like Evan Longoria, Chris Davis, Todd Frazier and Josh Donaldson are too old to crack my top five. Much respect to those guys, but a new generation of third basemen has arrived. Let's take a look.   The Fantasy Future... Read More

Top Five Dynasty / Keeper Second Basemen

Last week, I completed my first ever slow draft. Instead of a typical 60 seconds to make your pick, slow draft gives up to 8 hours to make a pick. This style of drafting could possibly take a couple weeks rather than the standard couple of hours. Needless to say, slow draft completely took over... Read More

Adam Warren (SP, NYY) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues / AL-Only Leagues ANALYSIS: Adam Warren has now been named the New York Yankee's 5th starter. If he is available in your deeper league / AL-Only league, and you've already drafted, go ahead and grab him him off the waiver wire. As a relief pitcher in 2014, with a 2.97 ERA and a... Read More
