Top 3 Tight Ends to Target for Week 2

Brant Tedeschi Sep 11th 12:09 PM EDT.

Week 1 is finally in the books and the Tight End position was a mixed bag for a lot of fantasy teams. Some stars did not show up, while a couple of under the radar players showed they are worth rostering and starting.

Guys like Jared Cook, George Kittle, and Ricky Seals-Jones should be on your radar as potential waiver wire targets at tight end.

How to determine if a fantasy football trade is fair

Brant Tedeschi Aug 14th 3:04 PM EDT.

A fair trade is when both teams essentially win and both get what they want out of the deal. Sometimes it's hard to figure out a fair trade because it is hard to evaluate player worth. That is where we come in to help evaluate the trade using our fantasy football trade analyzer.

This advice of a fair trade can apply to any fantasy sport, such as fantasy basketball or baseball, and not just fantasy football. It can involve any type of player and not just a star like Antonio Brown.

When is the best date to schedule a fantasy football draft?

Brant Tedeschi Aug 7th 2:19 PM EDT.

When it comes to draft season, one of the most important things that you need to figure out as league commissioner is when to schedule the draft. The date of your draft is absolutely critical to make sure you have the latest news at hand.

For example, leading into this season the news about Josh Gordon is all over the place. Will he report to camp? When will he report to camp? And will he even be eligible or face additional roadblocks?

Robinson Cano (2B) Waiver Pickup

Brant Tedeschi Aug 2nd 11:20 AM EDT.

Robinson Cano last played a game back on May 12th due to his broken hand and 80-game suspension. Cano is eligible to be activated on the 14th of August, which is right around the corner.

Upon Cano's return he will become an every day player once again and return to the lineup. What position he will play remains a question. There are rumors that he may see some time at first base and is currently working out at first base.

Lourdes Gurriel (2B - SS) Waiver Wire Pickup for Week 19

Brant Tedeschi Jul 29th 12:14 PM EDT.

Lourdes Gurriel has blown up the waiver wire thanks to stellar play in the month of July. For the season Gurriel is hitting 312 with 7 home runs, 20 runs batted in, 16 runs scored, and one stolen base for the Toronto Blue Jays in just 37 games.

The Blue Jays manager spoke about his two-homer game on July 27th. "He's obviously on a pretty nice roll," manager John Gibbons said. "He's doing a lot of good things. It was just a good night for our offense, and I thought Stro's stuff was really good tonight."

Is Andrew Luck safe to draft in 2018?

Brant Tedeschi Jul 20th 5:06 PM EDT.

The news just broke that Andrew Luck has been cleared to fully participate in training camp with the Indianapolis Colts. Colts fans are probably relieved that their guy is finally back and the quarterback drama is over.

But what does this mean for fantasy owners? Is Andrew Luck safe to draft as your quarterback? We are early into draft season for 2018, but as it stands today Luck has an ADP of 129. This puts Luck at roughly the 19th quarterback in most leagues.

Adalberto Mondesi offers deep league help

Brant Tedeschi Jul 11th 6:03 PM EDT.

Adalberto Mondesi went from unheard amongst pretty much anyone to a slightly wider range including some fantasy baseball team owners. Mondesi had a breakout game last night and is worth taking a look at.

Last night Mondesi had two hits, one home run, one run scored, one stolen base, and 4 runs batted in against the Minnesota Twins. A great statline for even MIke Trout.

The past 5 starts for Suarez have been great and brought his ERA down from 5.06 to just under 4 at 3.92. Meanwhile his WHIP has been fairly consistent during this stretch hovering around the 1.25 to 1.28 range.
