Is it time to give up on Willians Astudillo?

Brant Tedeschi Apr 22nd 12:55 PM EDT.

Willians Astudillo seemed like the perfect waiver pickup in early April and has a pretty solid statline to back up those claims. So far he is sporting a 295 average with 2 home runs, 7 RBI, and 10 runs batted in.

Those numbers are pretty solid when you consider that he has not been playing every day. But that is the problem. Astudillo is not an every day catcher and therefore you should not be counting on him.

Wacha gives up season-high 7 runs

Brant Tedeschi Apr 11th 5:20 PM EDT.

Michael Wacha had a day at the office that he would prefer to forget. He lasted just 3.2 innings, gave up 8 hits, 7 earned runs, and just 3 strikeouts.

Prior to this outing Wacha had two decent starts under his belt but is currently winless on the season. Fantasy owners should still hang on to Wacha and not freak out just yet. This time last year Wacha had a 5.59 ERA and 1.66 WHIP.

Daniel Vogelbach is the Waiver Pickup of April

Brant Tedeschi Apr 10th 1:06 PM EDT.

Daniel Vogelbach is the single best waiver pickup of the month of April so far. His stats are absolutely ridiculous in this young season. He has a 5 game hitting streak and a four game home run hitting streak.

Obviously there is no way Vogelbach can keep up his torrid pace this season but in the meantime he needs to be owned in all formats. He's hitting .500 with 5 home runs, 9 RBI, and 8 runs scored.

SG Malik Beasley is a top waiver add

Brant Tedeschi Feb 2nd 12:22 PM EST.

Malik Beasley went off against the Houston Rockets on Friday night with 35 points, 3 assists, and two rebounds while shooting 70% from the field.

Beasley was starting over the injured Gary Harris, which would help explain the huge night of 35 points and 41 minutes. Both of these are season highs for Beasley.

Brant Tedeschi Jan 27th 2:29 PM EST.

As fantasy baseball draft season inches closer and closer fans are probably feeling the excitement build prior to their big draft day.These Expert Tips will help you dominate your h2h points draft.

Center Ivica Zubac is a top waiver add with good upside

Brant Tedeschi Jan 19th 11:55 AM EST.

Ivica Zubac just had a monster game last night against the Thunder with 26 points, 12 rebounds while shooting a ridiculous 12 of 14 from the floor in 28 minutes. Talk about efficiency.

The Lakers have major injuries and quite honestly need Zubac in a big way over the next few weeks until Lebron can get back from his groin injury. However, do not expect these killer numbers from Zubac every outing. He has been incredibly inconsistent and you should expect this to continue.

Waiver Wire Targets Week 14

Lesley Tedeschi Dec 5th 3:03 PM EST.

Welcome to the playoffs! I know some leagues aren't there yet but I am! It has been quite a season and I'm happy to know its not over yet! With a lot of hard work and tools (thanks FantasySP) my team is still chugging along, and holds the honor of most points scored in the regular season with a first round bye! I won't be taking the week off from waivers, must keep moving forward.

This week we are starting with tight end Ian Thomas on the Carolina Panthers. Thomas looks like the only option now that Greg Olsen is on injured reserve, and the Panthers will put him to the test this week. So far in his career he's had 16 catches for 133 yards. He is owned in 7% of leagues and should be easy to grab. We don't expect huge numbers from Thomas but tight end options are limited this deep in the season.

We are so deep into the season, that finding new players at this point is pretty tough, but we keep trying!

Nick Mullens is a safe start for Week 10

Brant Tedeschi Nov 6th 5:03 PM EST.

Can you believe that in Week 10 of the fantasy football season that anyone would ever suggest to start Nick Mullens at QB for the San Francisco 49ers? Well here we are.

At this point in the season many teams are dealing with bye weeks or have quarterbacks that are underperforming like Derek Carr or Andy Dalton.
