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. In general, it would be wise to wait a couple of more weeks to determine whether a player is addable or droppable. However, that luxury is not always afforded due to injuries and other factors. Here are the players who are the most popular among the nearly 750 teams in the Bronze Salary Cap Points Challenge game. I have also noted players who have been added or dropped by at least 20…

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…

Spring Training News and Notes III

This edition could have easily had a Star Wars-inspired titled called Spring Training III: Revenge of the Injury Bug. It seems that a great deal of news this week concerns injuries. This has some wondering if Spring Training is too long.

Therefore, we would be able to bypass the…

2018 Fantasy Baseball Busts for Standard Leagues

Last week, I rolled out my top sleepers for the coming season. Now it's time to temper my enthusiasm. Collectively, we fantasy owners can get too exuberant about certain players. Sometimes we put too much stock in an apparent breakout season. Other times, we don't give enough weight to the previous season's warning signs. Hidden trends can elude us. Whatever the reason, the hype around certain players can get overheated. I've listed 10 players who are particularly at risk of underperforming based on their average draft…

Dynasty Dugout: Mid-Season Keeper/Dynasty Rankings: Catcher

We've covered every offensive position so far in our midseason dynasty rankings besides catchers. Yay catchers! I know you can’t really tell, but that was said with a lot of sarcasm. Trying to find reliable catchers in fantasy these days is about as much fun as watching the Hallmark channel with my in-laws. Most catchers are only on fantasy rosters because they need to be. If we ignored position and solely looked at stats, how many would still warrant being owned? Maybe five? Regardless if we want them or not, catchers…
