Fantasy Baseball: Roto Salary Cap Roster

Well, folks, Opening Day is finally here! Fans all over the globe are optimistic about the upcoming season, and fantasy owners are arguably even more so. Spring Training is over, and the games (and more importantly the stats) finally count! This season, I will be offering some of my thoughts on the Fantrax Salary Cap Challenge Games. Specifically, I will be looking at some player percentages and highlighting some players who could be worth a New Player Claim. Please remember that the 18 claims each team is allowed are to…

Ryne Milkins’ Bold Predictions

It takes guts to be bold. Or, a ton of luck with a hint of stupidity. Either way, everyone loves a good bold prediction leading up to the regular season. Stats are all at zero, everyone is in "the best shape of their lives" and are ready to prove what they can do in 2018. Sure, there will be a lot of the obvious this year. Mike Trout will be the best player in baseball, Clayton Kershaw the best pitcher, and the New York Yankees will hit a ton of home runs. None of those are bold predictions, though.

Mick Ciallela’s Draft Day Targets

"I bet so and so will do this," or "No way he does that this season!" Sometimes they don't even have to be performance-based, like the time I bet a buddy of mine 100 pushups that Ryan Braun would win his appeal back in 2012. Was it bold? Absolutely, but that satisfaction you get from getting a bold prediction like that right is pure gold.…

2018 Early MLB ADP: Bargains and Busts

What if I told you there was a third baseman with more home runs than Kris Bryant, more RBI than Josh Donaldson, more runs than Manny Machado, and a better batting average than Nolan Arenado in their last 750 plate appearances? Oh, yeah, and he was still being drafted in the 18th round? It’s true, baseball season is still months away, but we have enough draft data to give us a glimpse into what 2018 drafts could look like … and it's … well … a little weird. So let’s do it. LET’S GET WEIRD. Here are a few of my picks for…
