2011 MLB All-Scrub Team
It’s fun to argue about who did and didn’t deserve to be voted on the All-Star team each year. Fantasy baseball competitors often find themselves backing some of their own players as All-Star snubs.

Monday June 6th: A Few Good Matchups
There are a few good matchups today and here are those few! Brian Matusz: Matusz returned from the DL and pitched well in his first game back, allowing a run in 5 and 2/3. He faces the A’s who are on the lower end of blah. His 6,900 price tag is nice for the MLB ...

Wednesday Player Matchups: Tommy The Baseball Wizard

Wednesday Player Matchups: Tommy The Baseball Wizard
Just a nice little FYI for y’all, the 5 worst team OPS% are Minnesota, San Diego, Seattle, Washington and Oakland.

Deep Sleepers for the Weekend
Deep sleeper time! As always, these are guys who are cheap enough to warrant using over the weekend and who could provide a nice return. Also as always, if you use them for the $5K Friday MLB MVP, the $1500 Friday Hit-and-Run or the $4K Saturday Home Run, you’re running the risk of them not ...

Bargain Bin Players: Thursday April 28th
Out of the starting pitchers available for the $1250 Thursday MLB Single, can you guess who has the most FanDuel points per start without looking?  Nope, not Jon Lester.

Daily Player Matchups: Don’t Leave Chad Hanging In Florida

Daily Player Matchups: Don't Leave Chad Hanging In Florida
The top pitchers all have nice matchups. Verlander against the Mariners, Haren against Oakland and Beckett against the Orioles, but all three are a pretty penny. To get the most bang for your buck I’d give Chad Billingsley a shot. He started off slow, but has come on of late. In 5 games against Florida ...
