Fantasy Baseball: Bronze Points Challenge – Period 6 Ownership and Claims Report

Each week, I have taken a look at ownership percentages to highlight players who should be considered for potential New Player Claims in Fantrax’s Bronze Points Salary Cap Challenge game. This week, I am also going to add total points into the mix. Please note that using total points rather than points per game will eliminate players like J.T. Realmuto and Yuri Gurriel from the equation. But I still prefer total points for now because points per game is still such a fluid metric at this juncture in the young season. On April…

Bronze Points Ownership and Claims Report: Top 100 Teams vs. The Field

It is hard to believe we are already on the verge of entering Period 5 in the Fantrax Bronze Points Salary Cap Challenge game. And yet, barely 10% of all games have been played. That’s partly because there have been roughly a thousand postponements thus far, but it does remind us that it is still very early in the 2018 baseball season. Having said that, I think we do have enough data to look not only at the most popular players, but the most popular players among Top 100 teams. Having an idea of who the teams higher up in…

Bronze Points Ownership and Claims Report: Period 3-4

It’s still far too early to panic if your team is low in the standings, but at least we are starting to a gather a bit of data to work with.

Medical Corner – Josh Donaldson, Christian Yelich, and Delino Deshields

My projected return dates are based on medical protocols, established rehabilitation guidelines, and evidence-based data. Most of the time I will not agree with the timelines given by teams, beat-writers, or others on social media. Josh Donaldson A quiet spring training didn’t alert many of us to the fact that Donaldson was dealing with a shoulder ailment since early March.  His throw to first after a nice defensive stab, however, caused quite a stir (pictured below). via GIPHY The club said he is dealing with…

Bronze Points Ownership Report and New Player Claims

I’m old enough to remember when you would have no idea where your team stood in the standings until at least a week or two into the season. In a way, we were almost better off. Nowadays, you can see live standings from the first day of the season on. When I woke up on Friday and saw I was in last place in my Fantrax Roto league, I had to laugh. The truth is that one day is inconsequential in the grand scheme of things. Sure, it would be nice to get off to a quick start, but the important thing is to have the correct pieces…
