I've been a fan of sports all my life. Football is always the most exciting time of year, and I am a lifelong Broncos fan. Playing fantasy sports over the last decade has broadened my knowledge to not just my home teams and players, but all teams throughout the league. At the start of any fantasy season, my one goal is total domination!

Jesse Winker Strong Pick-up

Lesley Tedeschi Jul 14th 1:29 PM EDT.

The fantasy baseball season is well underway at this point, and there's still plenty of time left to turn your team around if you need to!

Outfielder Jesse Winker of the Cincinnati Reds' is proving to be a very hot pick-up and a must start. Winker had a slow start to his rookie season, but has picked things up at the plate recently. Over the course of his last 20 games he has gone 23-for-55 with four home runs and 20 RBIs. This is definitely a player to add to your team for the next half of the season!

DeMarco Murray Announces Retirement

Lesley Tedeschi Jul 13th 3:06 PM EDT.

After playing seven seasons in the NFL, running back DeMarco Murray has officially retired today.

Murray did not have the strongest season in 2017 with the Titans, and the team released him back in March. He was the lead back for both seasons he played there, but unfortunately this past season he just couldn't get things going. It was his lowest career year for yards rushing and carrying, and he didn't break 1,000 yards for the season.

Yes, I'm self promoting one of the greatest tools that the site has to offer and I feel no shame for doing so! I want all the help and any edge possible to have a winning squad!

Lesley Tedeschi Jun 5th 5:09 PM EDT.

Right-handed pitcher Chris Archer has been placed on the 10 - day disabled list with a strained left abdominal muscle. The Tampa Bay Rays have the start date retroactive to June 3rd, so Archer will be back before you know it.

Archer left during Saturday's game against the Mariners during the fifth inning when he suffered the injury.

Andre Iguodala Close to Return

Lesley Tedeschi Jun 4th 5:59 PM EDT.

The Golden State Warriors have been without Andre Iguodala for the past two and a half weeks at the most crucial time of the post season. Iguodala is eyeing his return to the court hopefully for Game 3 against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Iguodala has been dealing with a bone bruise on his knee that has kept him off the court. The Warriors have managed to win the first two games against the Cavaliers even with Iguodala being sidelined, but he has been there to support his teammates. The Warriors are clearly a powerhouse and easily the best stacked team in the NBA.

Tyler O'Neill Worth a Spot?

Lesley Tedeschi May 23rd 4:36 PM EDT.

The St. Louis Cardinals have something brewing right now that they can't ignore, outfielder Tyler O'Neill. O'Neill hasn't made much of an impact until recently, hitting homers three games in a row.

O'Neill spent time down in the minors and managed to get 13 homers over the course of 29 games. After getting called back up last week he has managed to impress his team and the crowd. Now the question is can he keep up with the major league expectations?

Matt Wisler Waiver Wire Worthy?

Lesley Tedeschi Apr 25th 11:37 AM EDT.

Atlanta Braves pitcher Matt Wisler is off to a nice start this season. He earned his second shot at a start on Wednesday against the Cincinnati Reds, which happens to be his home turf. Wisler wasn't guaranteed the start but manager Brain Snitker said he deserves the opportunity.

Last season was very up and down for Wisler, and he has no problem admitting that. He bounced back and forth between Triple-A and the Majors and had a difficult time processing that. He only had one start last seaon, so he's doubled that already in 2018!

David Dahl Looks Promising

Lesley Tedeschi Apr 24th 4:43 PM EDT.

THe Colorado Rockies called outfielder David Dahl up for their game on Sunday. Dahl has been in Triple-A for the start of the 2018 season and is looking to capitalize on his very recent move to the Majors.

Dahl went for a 17 game hitting streak during the 2016 season and the sky seemed the limit for his success moving into 2017. Unfortunately Dahl dealt with a rib injury that kept him completely off the main roster last season and the start of 2018. During preseason Dahl led the Rockies with 18 RBIs and five homers, but that still wasn't enough to move out of Triple-A.

Giancarlo Stanton on the Upswing

Lesley Tedeschi Apr 21st 4:48 PM EDT.

Since becoming a New York Yankee this year, Giancarlo Stanton has gotten off to a rough start. Stanton has been welcomed by the fans with boos in the last few weeks, as he went 9-50 at bats after game 2.

Stanton appeared to shake off some dust in the game Friday night against the Toronto Blue Jays, hitting a two-run homer during the third. The outfielder was greeted with cheers at the start of the fourth which was more than welcomed.

Mike Napoli Out for Season

Lesley Tedeschi Apr 20th 4:15 PM EDT.

The news out of Cleveland is that first baseman Mike Napoli will undergo season ending surgery. Napoli suffered a torn right ACL and meniscus during a minor league game on Tuesday night.

The Cleveland Indians got great production out of Napoli in 2016, and decided to sign him to a minor league deal for 2018. Napoli was with the Texas Rangers last season and managed to hit 29 home runs. With Yonder Alonso being signed as the first baseman for the Indians, there wasn't a spot on the roster for Napoli.
