If there’s one thing I’ve learned over my life playing fantasy sports, it’s that you need to be patient in the early going. ¬†We’re two weeks into the season with teams playing 10-12 games. ¬†Would you be worried about a fantasy football player if he had a bad week one? ¬†I certainly wouldn’t be so give your team some time. ¬†When it comes to hockey, I suggest waiting at least a month to consider any major moves to your roster. ¬†I feel the same way in baseball, perhaps even more so. ¬†For the most part, variance when it comes to BABIP, park factors, etc. swamps everything in a two week sample. ¬†This isn’t to say that you shouldn’t make any moves; you should always be looking to upgrade the bottom of your roster through the waiver wire and should use the Buy/Sell columns linked below to help. ¬†If you have a team at the bottom of your standings, like I do in an RCL, all we need is a little patience. ¬†Mm, yeah. ¬†Here’s a look at what everyone posted on Razzball over the last week:
Phil B. gave us his OPS Leagues¬†and I wholeheartedly support his love for auctions. ¬†Once you do an auction draft, snake drafts seem miserable (because they are).
Grey and Dan Pants provide us with Daily Notes. ¬†Highlights include some Braves picking it up offensively,¬†Luis Severino‘s big start (I still think he’s a reliever long-term) and¬†Yoenis Cespedes¬†having anotehr three homer game.
The DFS¬†crew wrote a piece every day giving great information for those who dabble into daily leagues.
Per usual, JB teamed up with Grey on the newest podcast¬†¬†that gave us the baseball version of FMK. ¬†I think it has some staying power!
MattTruss gave us a recap of the first week in RCL’s. ¬†Man, my team has been a disaster in the RCL I made but at least my team in the writers league is doing well! ¬†If only I could get rid of my 1’s in HR and RBI. ¬†Like I said above, patience is key.
Kerry Klug provided us with an Injury Report. ¬†Does anyone else have a team that’s getting killed by injuries? ¬†I’m out of DL spots in multiple leagues. ¬†Ambulance Chasers also gives you some nice options for players to fill in.
Malamoney’s Batting Contest¬†post for Week Three is live. ¬†Click that link!
The newest Prospect Podcast¬†came out Saturday and yeah, you should check it out.
THE WEEK AHEAD
Hittertron¬†doesn’t have much in the way of surprises. ¬†No Surprises, great song. ¬†Anyways,¬†Hunter Pence¬†and¬†Eduardo Nunez¬†are in the top 35 despite having only five games this week. ¬†A weekend at Coors will do that.
DFSBot¬†will be updated daily and is absolutely terrific for those playing daily leagues. ¬†The Lineup Optimizer¬†is a personal favorite once you lock in a few players you like to help you with the rest.
That’s all for now guys. ¬†As always, feel free to ask any questions or comments below and I’ll be sure to answer them. ¬†I hope everyone has a great Easter and can take it some of the sports action. ¬†Thanks for reading, take care!
