The Bargain Bin: First Base

Nothing is much sweeter than getting a good deal, hence the reason for Black Friday sales or why car dealerships and mattress stores use Presidents’ birthdays to sell you stuff. While there may not be any crazy gimmicks or sales in fantasy baseball, the concept of finding a bargain is something that exists in fantasy baseball. Come draft day, players are always looking to acquire a valuable piece for their fantasy roster at a discount pick. This is where The Bargain Bin comes in. Each Wednesday up until the regular season starts, I will be covering a new position and three players of that position that you can draft outside the top 150 picks who will be more than good enough to use as your starter. This will help you focus on other areas to draft more strategically early on, and then you can scoop up one of these players to help compliment your roster towards the end.

It’s okay to (Sun)Trust in Brandon Phillips in Atlanta

Roses are red, violets are blue.  Lets talk trades and call ups too.

Love is in the air.  It’s that special time of year when two becomes one and they spend the day showing each other how their relationship has grown.  Yes, its time for pitchers and catchers to report.

On the day when playing catch becomes official and pitchers and catchers arrive to their respective spring training homes, we have a big name on the move and another coming up into relevance.  Announced February 12th The Atlanta Braves has acquired second basemen Brandon Phillips from the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for pitchers Andrew Mckirahan and Carlos Portuondo.

2017 National League Breakout Candidates

As a fantasy baseball player myself, I know how easy it can be to go online and find a list of the Top 10 or Top 20 guys at each position.  Each of those lists rattles off the same roster of guys, sometimes in a different order, but the reality of fantasy baseball is that you have no chance of getting a Top 10 guy at each position.  If by some chance you have a league like that, please let me know if there is an opening because it’s a league I think I can win.

With Spring Training underway, I want to give you my own list; a full lineup of guys in the National League who are primed for breakout seasons in 2017.

Chris Archer: The Undervalued Ace

Fantasy owners yearn to find the diamond in the rough, that late round sleeper that turns into a superstar that you can brag to your friends about, but we get so caught up trying to find a breakout that we often miss value in the middle rounds, and I believe an example of that for some people is Chris Archer. Archer is currently ranked 15th among starting pitchers and 60th overall on Fantasypros Expert Consensus Rankings (ECR),yet I have him as my 47th Overall player and have him ranked 10th among starting pitchers. I want to show you why and why I believe you should target Archer.
