Welcome to the final 2022 iteration of the SAGNOF steals article. Nearly every week, we have taken a look at the stolen base market for players to add who could help us to win our fantasy leagues. Hopefully, you all were able to take something that I wrote and put it to good use for […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The refrain this week will once again be the same for everyone chasing down roto league titles, make sure you are paying attention to your individual league’s standings and know where you can move. Once again we are going to take a look at the state of steals and look for some lesser names we […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
As we approach the final weeks of the fantasy baseball season the mantra remains the same: balance no longer matters, attack categories. We no longer care about complete players we want playing time and the skills that are most valuable to our own respective teams. With that said, let’s take a look at some potentially […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
While young players with new opportunities are an exciting way to find late-season value another great source is bounce-back players. Players who may have started off hot, then struggled mid-season and are turning it around as the season draws to a close. In most deep leagues, these players will likely be held but if you […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
We are one day away from September 1st when rosters expand slightly and teams are more willing to call up top prospects to give them a small taste of the majors. However, this week we have already seen two teams promote their top prospects in Gunnar Henderson and Corbin Carroll. Carroll is the much more […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
As we have discussed several times over the last few iterations of this piece, as the fantasy baseball season wears on, we as fantasy managers find ourselves playing guys we never imagined. Often, those two to three bags a player can provide outweighs the awful batting average and lack of category production elsewhere. Understanding a […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
With the season starting to reach its apex, we care less and less about full category contributions and shift our immediate focus even more to category studs. One such potential “stud” in the stolen base category is Bubba Thompson. Thompson has three steals in his first five MLB games and has played every day since […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
With the trade deadline come and gone, we will see a small influx of new full-time players. Often, these replacement players tend to be fringe big leaguers as opposed to superstar prospects. However, this player group is often one of the best sources of flawed stolen base threats. Likely the biggest beneficiary of a deadline […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
For many fantasy players, the loss of Jon Berti has seriously hurt their chances of winning their titles. Berti was a one-man stolen base factory and although he has been gone for a few weeks many players are still feeling the pain of the loss. However, for fantasy managers, there may be another available Marlin […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Across the last two weeks, there is one player with five stolen bases (Jon Berti) and six others with four. That second group includes expected names like Michael Harris, Ronald Acuna, and Bobby Witt however, it also includes Ryan McMahon and Patrick Wisdom. Yet, to me, the most shocking name on this list is Jonathan […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The best part of stolen bases is that they can save a fantasy profile. For example, two outfielders who have underperformed relative to many managers’ hopes are Randy Arozarena and Christian Yelich. Both players are hitting around .250 with only eight homers thus far when many hoped for 20+ over the course of an entire […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
In case you are not one of the many fantasy managers who decided to take the Javy Baez plunge, you may not realize quite how bad he has been for Detroit. His wRC+ is 69 among the worst in the league and he has not run nearly as much as expected. However, over the last […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
