Fantasy Baseball: Why You Should Play Salary-Cap Challenge Games

Thousands of teams signed up on Fantrax last year to play a wide variety of draft leagues, with even more expected to play this season. Leagues are filling up every day, and countless fantasy players will spend the next two months analyzing Average Draft Position (ADP) trends and hoping against hoping that they get the chance to own Mike Trout or Jose Altuve. I have a bit of advice for these people: You're doing it all wrong! You need to give the one of the salary cap challenge leagues a try. Join or start a fantasy…

Al Melchior’s Review of the Tout Wars Mixed Auction

This year's Tout Wars mixed league auction felt different to me, and it wasn't just the surroundings. For the first time, we held our auction in the locker room at Richmond County Bank Ballpark, the home of the Short Season Class A Staten Island Yankees. For reasons that probably had little to do with the presence of lockers, uniforms and even mascot costumes, I spent the bulk of my $260 budget more quickly than I can ever recall doing. Though I had been consciously moving toward emphasizing hitters over the last couple of…

2018 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Relief Pitchers

Everyone seems to have a different approach to drafting closers for their fantasy team.

Dynasty Dugout Mid-Season Keeper/Dynasty Rankings: Relief Pitchers

This will be the last installment of the mid-season dynasty rankings. I’ve saved the best for last, too. Yeah, right. Who am I kidding? Ranking relievers is more or less a crapshoot. You got your few elite options and then the rest is anyone’s guess. Over half of the relievers that were closers to start 2016 are either now in middle relief or retired. Below are the top 40 reliever options in dynasty leagues today. There are many guys you could debate here, and this list will probably change dramatically come spring time.…
