I've been playing fantasy sports for half of my life and originally created FantasySP to help with managing my own teams. Needless to say, I love what I do.

Drafting Shohei Ohtani as a hitter may be a bad idea

Brant Tedeschi Mar 11th 1:57 PM EDT.

A lot of hype is surrounding Shohei Ohtani as both a starting pitcher and a hitter. Early indications say he's going to be a productive pitcher but there are reports from numerous scouts that his hitting has big problems.

In just 14 plate appearances so far this spring, scouts are suggesting that he needs a full season at the minor league level in order to adjust to major league pitching. Of course, this would be impossible since he is also a starting pitcher.


Russell shows why he is one of the Best

Russell Westbrook had a stellar game last night beating the Phoenix Suns 124-116.

Westbrook finished the game with 43 points, 8 assists, 14 rebounds, 1 steal, 1 block, and 5 turnovers in 40 minutes played. It is also the third time all season that Westbrook has gone over 40 points.


Wade Resurgence on the Heat

Brant Tedeschi Mar 3rd 2:44 PM EST.

Dwyane Wade is putting on quite the show as a member of the Miami Heat as of late. In his last two games, Wade has amassed 52 points, 4 assists, 3 steals, and 4 rebounds while shooting 62% from the field.

Vintage Wade. He's back right? Well, sure for now he is playing well so ride the hot hand while you can. In both of those games for the Heat, he averaged 25.5 minutes per game which means he needs to be super efficient with his minutes on the floor.


Dejounte Murray has back-to-back solid games

Brant Tedeschi Mar 1st 2:50 PM EST.

Dejounte Murray owners this season have gone through an up and down kind of season thus far. RIght now, fantasy owners are on the up-swing again.

Murray's last two games have combined for 13/27 from the field for 31 points, 10 assists, 5 steals, 18 rebounds, and 4 blocks. Realistically, Murray has posted solid numbers from his past 6 starts dating back until February 7th.


Tom Brady Should be Good to go Against the Jags

Brant Tedeschi Jan 20th 10:48 AM EST.

Tom Brady hurt his hand during practice earlier in the week and his official status is "questionable" as of today. He had to get four stitches to his knuckle after the injury.

Ian Rappoport reports that his injury was gushing blood and was throwing the ball well during Friday's practice.


Top Waiver Pickups for Week 14

Brant Tedeschi Dec 5th 3:57 PM EST.

The fantasy playoffs are upon us and now is the most important time of the year to stay on top of waivers. For those of you still in it, congratulations and let's take a closer look at the top waivers for the week.

This week's waivers are dominated by quality running backs, starting with Mike Davis and Peyton Barber.


Ricky Seals-Jones, a solid yet risky pickup

Brant Tedeschi Nov 29th 11:36 AM EST.

The buzz about Ricky Seals-Jones is growing, and there is good reason for it. In Week 12 he hauled in 4 catches for 72 yards and one touchdown. Plus he was second on the team with 6 targets (just two behind Fitzgerald).

The bad news is that he only has two weeks worth mentioning and in both of those weeks he had at least one touchdown.


Austin Ekeler is a solid Week 13 Waiver Pickup

Brant Tedeschi Nov 29th 11:22 AM EST.

Austin Ekeler has quietly turned in some very solid games the past few weeks and is a nice fill-in replacement for a team struggling to find a solid RB2 option.

In Ekeler's last 3 weeks he has totaled 22 carries for 97 yards rushing with 1 touchdown and 10 catches for 150 yards and 2 touchdowns. In PPR leagues, he has managed to get double digits for 3 weeks in a row with an average of 16 points.


Top Running Back Waiver Pickups for Week 11

Brant Tedeschi Nov 14th 12:02 PM EST.

This week the options at running back are quite good considering it is Week 11. Chances are, you probably have a good shot at getting some of these guys because of teams giving up in your league.

This week's top waiver wire running backs are led by Jamaal Williams and feature yet another Patriot running back.


Top WR Waiver Adds for Week 9

Brant Tedeschi Oct 31st 12:47 PM EDT.

The fantasy season is at the point where team's are giving up and the rest of you who have a bleak outlook have to keep fighting. The best way to keep fighting is to keep attacking on the waiver wire.

This week's best fantasy receiver options start with Paul Richardson and JuJu Smith-Schuster.
