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.

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.
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!
